    Vistaus and Darknation, thanks for letting me know RebeccaBlackOS and Arch, respectively, default to Wayland.

    Funny, I have a ten year old HP Elitebook I hadn't used in months and I turned it on yesterday.

      Arch has no default. Every "default" is upstream default, so it depends on the desktop environment defaults. For example GNOME defaults to Wayland and KDE plasma defaults to X.

        Is it possible to export GDK_BACKEND=wayland in Weston or sway config file ?

          This is great :-) I believe this will make it easier to get Firefox Wayland working on Plasma as well. So far you only get blank page, but it seems like the window boarders are rendered correctly so there are definitely improvements.

            ^ Looks kinda like this for me, it responds as expected to mouse input (dragging the window from the decorations) but does not display anything in the window except the default GTK background colour, also funny that Firefox depends on Chromium.

            Try disabling WebRender and `layers.acceleration.force-enabled`.

              Oh, I totally forgot to disable OpenGL acceleration, great thanks :-) Now it works at least for basic browsing. If I make a right click, something start to go wrong and Firefox stops showing visible output. Anyway this is a good progress!

              Does somebody know how I can I make Gtk applications to consider my increased fonts DPI? It works in XWayland, but not for native Wayland Gtk apps.

                Was that documented somewhere? I found out the hard way.

                  When NVIDIA contributes the code for it, for KDE, while for GNOME it should work already.

                    Is NVIDIA in the process to develop the wayland support?

                      Yes for KDE

                      Mir (which is now a Wayland compositor) should support NVIDIA but I have no idea about the current status https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?pa...ptions-Streams

                      No for everyone else, afaik.
