    Phoronix: Problems Being Investigated Under Wayland Itches Program, Including Gaming Performance

    Last week we wrote about a "Wayland Itches" program being devised by prolific open-source contributor Hans de Goede of Red Hat. The goal of this program is to address itches/paper-cuts/problems in using GNOME Shell atop Wayland. He's received a fair amount of feedback so far and has some early indications to share...

    Isn't this very specific to Gnome, and not Wayland in general?

      It's good to see good people working on next-gen technologies, specially focused on the most polished DE. Keep the good work, guy!

            I'm running sway, and my single major gripe ATM is that when my external monitors are disconnected (the config places them on the left), GTK apps systematically fail to display context menus, menus or pop-ups (and sometimes they are in the wrong position if one of the two external screens is connected).

            Not sure it would qualify, though.

            Edit: to reproduce with one monitor and Firefox:
            Code:
            output * resolution 1920x1080 position 3000,360

              Firefox nightly is shaping up really good on Wayland and works rather well.

                Things I miss in/on Wayland:
                • Middle-click to paste (KWin is trying to bring this feature back though)
                • Stutter-free VSync'ed XWayland
                • Full-screen unredirection (like Windows' "Exclusive Fullscreen" for lag reduction)
                • A standard protocol for screen resolution/multi-monitor configuration

                Oh come on don'

                  Yeah, this was like the primary reason people *wanted* wayland (minus the paste feature). wtf ever happened there.
