It should be possible, I just have not done it in a while so would not be surprised if there is some bit rot.

In short, you want the GTK base glass plugin, instead of Monocle. We were building both before I stopped building ARM.

after that, it should be a simple command line toggle, or a small edit to the created platform properties file.



Note that there is a good chance that this will not be hardware accelerated because of differences in GL setup.
