I want to switch back to xorg, having issues trying to get a proper use of KDE even with the wayland packages. Also the Desktop manager seem to also struggle with it. I put sddm and just present with a black screen. I am trying to stabilize my desktop and I think xorg would do a great job. Please let me know how can I get back to it.
I tried looking online but my system doesnt have /etc/gdm/ directory so my guess is that sddm will have a different way to configure.
i cant tell, currently Xorg is standard as for KDE is the same.
for kde you need to install plasma-wayland-session , its a option that enables the wayland. wayland is for now just a layer above Xorg. sddm is wayland compatible but does not put wayland on the first rank.
as for gnome is different, it enables standard wayland on purpose for feedback.
what tells journalctl -f or journalctl -xe ? probably some videocard configuration.
Can’t agree, I’m using sway (i3 wayland implementation) in both my job PC and home laptop, both with xorg-server-xwayland, and so far (4 months I think) everything works just as it’s meant to. My job PC is miision-crital for me, and I have almost full trust in sway stability.
Actually there is only single one app that isn’t working well, and that’s pepper-flash (I’m not sure whether it’s kvm redirection issue or pepper itself).
For anyone on i3 I can fully reommend transferring to wayland with sway. Actually sway is even better imho
@Jzarecta I don’t know the state of your installed system, so I suggest you start by searching this forum for waylamd and xorg. And read the following to get a better understanding of xorg and possible problems with wayland and KDE.
Hello @patryk, I’m glad Wayland is working for you on I3 and your hardware, but for many of us who are using a different DE or have different hardware, Wayland didn’t and doesn’t work as expected. But for many others like yourself it does. It’s great to have choices when they work.
Wayland is installed in every linux distri, cascade remove wayland end in a nonworking system, kde brings standard plasma-session, theoretical yiu can start ker manual in wayland but to do auto you need plasma-session-wayland with the session point to wayland and you have to select in sddm. Dont blame wayland it is not autostarted in kde and xfce cannot use wayland currently.

And what is the output of df -h , you are focussing on wayland, but wayland is not the standard also with kde it is not the standard , in gnome-hell is wayland is standard gdm i dont know … df -h journalctl -p or -xe i dont know… In a pastbin service
was just a exampjle plasma-wayland-session removal is enough but wayland is in every distro as depency but is sleeping thats i wanna say only gnome has enabled standard. information is priceless outside that suspicion of wyalnd is welcome, focussing on a single issue would not fix a thing.
