Run Gnome on Wayland with Nvidia drivers on Ceres

Install libnvidia-egl-wayland1
Kernel parameters nvidia-drm.modeset=1
Comment out the line with "DRIVER==nvidia" in /lib/udev/rules.d/61-gdm.rules
Comment out the line with "WaylandEnable=false" in /etc/gdm3/daemon.conf

Restart
Write echo $XDG_SESSION_TYPE in a terminal to see if you run x11 or Wayland

Re: Run Gnome on Wayland with Nvidia drivers on Ceres

Personally I can't stand Wayland. I am much happier with X running Nouveau drivers - can appreciate it if someone is in to gaming, but I reserve that for the PS4 Pro.

Wayland is very infected with redhat's nonsense... ;(

So yeah, Xorg is the only option I see sadly...

Wayland and Gnome is the only combination (must tell I didn't know how it is on KDE) there you get a completely color managed environment. Even the desktop picture is color managed. Because I use Linux even to photomanagement It's a big step forward. And Wayland works fine.

The colord backend works for pretty much any desktop and can even be used from the command line:

I'm a Wayland fan myself though so thanks for this guide, I had no idea it could be made to work with NVIDIA hardware. Not that I would buy anything from those bastards big_smile

Yes, color management work in those applications that has built support för color management. But in Gnome on Wayland color management works for the hole environment: The desktop picture, the window frames, themes and everything.

Re: Run Gnome on Wayland with Nvidia drivers on Ceres

Now discovered that I could not start Gnome boxes in Wayland. Searched a bit and found that I needed egl-wayland (libnvidia-egl-wayland1) version 1.1.5 + a patch.
Found an Arch package 1.1.5 including the patch at https://ftp5.gwdg.de/pub/linux/archlinu … kg.tar.zst
Unpacked the package and manually replaced two Devuan Ceres version 1.1.4 files at "/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/" with the package "/usr/lib/libnvidia-egl-wayland.so.1" and "/usr/lib/libnvidia-egl-wayland.so.1.1.5". Also chmod and chown the new files to have the same as the replaced files.
Restarted. Launched Gnome boxes.
