This is a repost from this Reddit post:

I've used the compositor before in Ubuntu via this PPA and the games run great as I can boot directly into the compositor and Steam from a lightdm login. Some games run better and some of us would like to boot directly into Steam without a whole desktop environment.
I would like this as I have Solus on a mini-itx PC in my living room directly connected to my TV and booting into Steam via this compositor would be great.

Please take this package into consideration. Thanks!

As this task has been marked Needs Maintainer for a month with nobody having stepped up to become maintainer, in addition to providing an acceptable patch for inclusion, marking as WONTFIX. Feel free to re-open when a patch has been submitted via the proper processes.

I have created package configs for steamos-compositor and steamos-modeswitch-inhibitor. Let me know what steps are needed to get these in the repos.(I believe these packages need to be accepted first)

@eyecreate This task was accepted which means anyone can submit a package for it.
Then the package will be reviewed and once all the remarks will be addressed, it will be added in the repository.
