Hello Marco!

in x session, if I use your guidelines an error message occurs that such 
display can not be found

in wayland session, if I use your guidelines Latte is starting but 
before creating the dock windows is crashing... I suppose this is 
because we havent enabled yet the wayland surfaces creation yet

in wayland session, if I just run the app it runs ok... the following 
screenshot shows the about windows of dolphin and latte in a wayland 
session... the first one is using wayland and the second xcb...

I suppose this means that we use xwayland
