    Phoronix: GNOME On Wayland Screencasting Is About To Be A Heck Of A Lot More Efficient

    Pending GNOME Mutter changes in conjunction with the new PipeWire 0.3 will offer a big improvement in making use of GNOME's screencasting support from Wayland sessions...

    These performance MRs also got merged. This time from Christian Hergert who happens to maintain sysprof. Neto happened to review and merge some of Hergert’s work.

      Michael Please consider an article about sysprof profiling on shell/mutter. Sysprof really combines easy and powerful.

      This sysprof integration MR just need to land.

        He's also the creator and maintainer of GNOME Builder. Guy is literally a software ninja.

          Looking at the activity log it is pretty evident he now looks at mutter profiling on sysprof.

            At this rate, Gnome (Mutter) will end up being the only usable graphical desktop on Linux under Wayland.

            Not that I have anything against it. But the others better get their game on quickly if they want to stay relevant in desktop linux under Wayland. KWin is still incomplete on the Wayland front (flickering / non-updating windows, Wayland applications not launching), complete system lockup on Nouveau), MATE + Mir is still a pipe dream and Sway (and wlroots) are still not even on the radar despite having early complete Wayland implementation.

              I used this just the other day, I needed to record a short clip of a game I'm making, I googled it and discovered it's as easy as pressing Shift+CTRL+Alt+R and it just starts recording. And it just worked, it's a far cry from the monster of the ffmpeg command I used to use to do the same on X11. And the ffmpeg command absolutely chewed up CPU resources when I had a budget CPU (Pentium G4560 at the time).

              I'm very impressed, especially considering this is the type of thing that Xorg remoaners say is the reason why Wayland is so bad and X is so good.

                Now I'm waiting for the VUA neckbeards to start whining about Unix Philosophy (tm), because implementing functionalities that actually Just Work on Linux is Verboten. The only way that is allowed is shitty solutions using buggy shell scripts.

                  On the brightside, good performance even on 4K. The downside is, that gnome desktop with smaller menu/header/window title. Obviously you can manually change that but you know, as a end-casual-user I don't like to do that.
