Re: wayland on devuan

Remembering that I'm using gnome-shell Wayland I don't know if kde also has this error in Wayland

Second this , tried this recently on Daedalus with gnome on amd gpu.

And could not open Firefox, Chromium or LibreOffice nor xeyes
(no errors in shell, nor wayland logs anywhere to be found)

think this was any non native application that required  Xwayland compatibility
(xwayland was installed)

Re: wayland on devuan

I also need this, I am running gnome with nvidia 525 driver. I uncommented the WaylandEnable=true line. Also, I commented the lines at /lib/udev/rules.d/61-gdm.rules, which were these lines:

LABEL="gdm_prefer_xorg"
#RUN+="/usr/libexec/gdm-runtime-config set daemon PreferredDisplayServer xorg"
GOTO="gdm_end"

LABEL="gdm_disable_wayland"
#RUN+="/usr/libexec/gdm-runtime-config set daemon WaylandEnable false"
GOTO="gdm_end"

LABEL="gdm_end"

Wayland supposedly works(!) but when I click firefox, it seems to be loading but it won't open, and finally will shutdown later.

FWIW Firefox-esr works fine on Debian Sid On SwayWM and Wayfire.
