Hey, so I decided to try out using wayland again and after installing wayland + checking that I have egl-wayland package and rebooting I was greeted with a black screen and the only option is to reboot (that I found).
Also check that I have the kernel parameter set, which as it seems like is done out of the box already. Also to check that it’s working I did:
cat /sys/module/nvidia_drm/parameters/modeset and the output was Y.
Last time I used wayland was also on endeavour, but I have reinstalled since then + newer kde version now.
What boot system?
At work with no access to my machine, can’t find the link that helped me, but you need to add something “drm_modeset” ish to grub (if you use grub, or the systemd config file, if systemd boot).
Back home around 6pm UK time, will check back then!!
Yeah, that’s set by default or at least I already had it. That’s what the cat /sys/module/nvidia_drm/parameters/modeset checks. OR at least as I understood.

pacman -Q | grep -e wayland ?
Thought it should say 1 - will have a look later.
Your right, my memory isn’t

I have a PC that is already several years old, with a old NVIDIA card.
With NVIDIA drivers it does not work.
Without NVIDIA drivers it works perfectly.
Okay, at home.

This is a fairly old install, so not systemd boot, but I did convert to dracut and found I needed:
# Omit the nvidia driver from the ramdisk, to avoid needing to regenerate
# the ramdisk on updates.
omit_drivers+=" nvidia nvidia-drm nvidia-modeset nvidia-uvm "
But it was because everything was choppy and not due to black screen.

Edit: I do still get minor artifacts, but it runs OK.
Sorry for the late reply:
Is the only one that stands out as missing…
Yeah, I installed it after posting that but it still didn’t work
No clue at this point.
Yeh, I don’t yet use systemd boot, so have not even paid minimal attention to it, I have grub and refind installed and use grub to boot plasma wayland, never got it to work with refind
So, no further ideas.
No worries, thanks for trying to help out either way!
I will probably just reinstall tomorrow and that will probably just fix it.
Create a new user and check if Wayland is running through the new user. I had a similar experience.
If this is the case, you will need to make a backup copy of the ~/.config folder and delete it (it will be created again with standard KDE files), then paste into the created directory ~/.config without replacement.
Try this before you reinstall the system.
Unfortunately that didn’t fix it either… Thanks anyway.
I don’t mind reinstalling don’t really have any big games etc on here so won’t be too bad
