I detest a graphical login and insist on running in multi-user mode

Wayland session.

An old post on this list suggests using weston-launch. But dnf says
there is no package that includes such a command and I can't find any
other weston command that looks likely. Surely I can't be the only one
wanting to start from a command line?

(The target is a system running 64-bit F38 fully updated.)

Yesterday I tried started a session using:

if [[ -z $DISPLAY && $XDG_SESSION_TYPE == tty ]]; then
  MOZ_ENABLE_WAYLAND=1 QT_QPA_PLATFORM=wayland XDG_SESSION_TYPE=wayland exec dbus-run-session gnome-session

This has been working since yesterday, but today with bright sun I discovered that the brightness setting isn't
available.  Fortunately this was a problem with some Fedora update and I have a script that uses ddcutil to
adjust brightness, but nw wonder what other differences may turn up.
