Using ART with Wayland

Lately I've been experimenting with using ART, a raw photo editing application which is a fork of RawTherapee. Compared to the excellent Darktable, ART has a slightly easier learning curve and can yield decent results pretty quickly. The binaries provided for Linux however do not work on Wayland and the official recommendation is to build binaries yourself. Luckily there is a much easier workaround by setting the GDK_BACKEND environment variable:

GDK_BACKEND=x11 ./ART
