Summary0002845: Unable to start netsurf in the framebuffer
DescriptionHello, same downstream Gentoo user here :D

When trying to start netsurf in the framebuffer, this is what I get:

Unable to open display
Error initialising wayland connection
Unable to initialise framebuffer

I'm using Sam's patch to get it to build successfully, and tried with a few (but not all) combinations of USE flags.
Steps To ReproduceA) build latest netsurf on gentoo with `fbcon` USE flag

B) try running netsurf-fb

C) no worko

I think this problem has something more to do with my system than the gentoo package, lmk any additional info you need :)

This way one doesn't need to actually press Ctrl+Shift+Plus, to achieve it. Most browsers, accept both Ctrl+= and Ctrl+Shift+= (aka Ctrl+Plus).
