wterm is said to be a simple terminal for wayland:

#+BEGIN_SRC shell  :results: raw
guix show wterm | recsel -p synopsis
#+END_SRC

#+RESULTS:
: synopsis: Terminal emulator for Wayland

Well, when I try to use it, I get the following error on sway.  wterm
does not start.

joshua@crazyhorse ~ (master)> wterm 
wl_drm@11: error 0: authenticate failed
# wayland_create_context: DRM authentication failed
# wayland_create_context: No wl_shm global
# wld_wayland_create_context: Could not initialize any of the specified implementations
Can't create wayland context


Thanks,

Joshua

Might you need to add video and maybe audio groups to your set of groups?

What do you get from
    id $USER
or
    groups
or, to see who else you share groups with
    grep $USER /etc/groups
for adding groups to those you already have, I think check the -aG option
    info usermod
I don't dare suggest the actual command for your system, so
you're on your own. If you have the sudo group, id $USER should show it,
and that's probably easier. If you go into root, you don't want
to add video,audio to root, so IIRC the options are a little different
to make sure you as $USER get the added groups, not root.
(BTW, try typing "id root" ;)

I have those set for my regular user.  I did not try to run the command as root.  :)

Patch https://issues.guix.gnu.org/57014 seems to have a patch to deprecate wterm,
if this is the direction that we decide to take.
