Just wondering if any KDE Plasma users out there are running Wayland. If so what is your experience and what is the hardware. What are the issues you find?
I have been running it for well over a good year now, on an old Latitude E6500. It has its flaws, though. For example I cannot see which localle I am in, in the system tray. Or, it is not compatible with a couple of apps I use (viber, gsmartcontrol). Not a deal breaker for me to switch to x11, though.
Genuine question, why bother? I may not fully understand, but isn’t Wayland all about pluming? So from a user perspective Is there anything I would gain by switching?
To me it looks a bit like IPv6, 99% of users won’t gain anything from switching over.
The Stable release of Wayland was 7 days ago so I’m just curious as it has been around since 2008.
It is not an issue on the side of Wayland. It is that not enough work & effort has been spared by developers into porting their staff in the Wayland platform.
It seems that it is being used on Gnome a fair bit and KDE Plasma and Enlightenment. It’s default on a lot of Gnome.
s(gnomes lead) because of Fedora & Red Had behind it.
