    Being stupid doesn't usually hurt and it seems you're happy with this. Wayland is a protocol. it's not a display server like X. X is abandoned while Wayland is introduced in Wayland compositors and has support from the biggest Linux desktops like Gnome and KDE and companies like AMD, Intel. Such low commits number in protocol proves it's nearly complete. You're comparing two different things, but it's idiots domain.

      Wayland is a protocol. Not a software that needs a lot of updates. Software that needs updates are compositors who use Wayland. And they have a lot of updates.
      Wayland protocol gives a basis for work that is mature today, mature to the extent that it is possible to do everything with it.

      It is up to the composers to integrate the functionalities underlying this protocol, and this is what wlroots, mutter (the composer of Gnome) etc. do.

        For X we have an UNIVERSAL Tool (i.e. works with all X-compatible DEs) to do Custom Resolutions (XRANDR) witch is the way to be...i don't need and don't want to learn the way *every* single DE have to solve the issue....and that is assuming that each DE REALLY have a solution and/or is not some ARCHAIC solution forcing us to make *.bin files and a GAZILLION of other steps to finally get ONE SINGLE Custom resolution...not to mention when we actually need SEVERAL custom resolutions...

        Then, this is not even the only issue with Wayland (although this issue itself is enough to make Wayland useful and adequate to me as an Ice Cube in Hell).
        Fine. Then just start to work and make a proposal. But since it isn't something that a general app should do, that doesn't belong to Wayland, so I think that you will have to go with a DBUS interface. Remember that you have to send your RFC to Freedesktop.org to be evaluated.

        When you ended with that, please, comment it here. I'm curious to see your great solution.

          Changing resolution is accomplished by using the settings panel of the DE/DM (supporting wayland)
          In Gnome 3 go to Settings -> Displays.
          There you can change:
          Orientation
          Resolution
          Refresh rate
          Scale
          ...


          all according to the capabilities of your monitor.
          Similar in KDE.

          If your DE/DM does not support wayland, use XRANDR (Xorg/X11 specific extension) as you will be using X11 anyway

            As a Nouveau user on a Wayland Gnome 3 desktop for the past three years and counting, I call BS on 'Gnome 3 is unstable'.

            It's the only Wayland desktop environment that works perfectly fine on Nouveau. Plasma still locks up on Nouveau under Wayland.

              I DON'T want just change resolution to something that the Monitor officially already supports, i want to CREATE a CUSTOM Resolution, for what you are saying, THAT will NOT do it.

              Ergo my previous comment about need to create a*.bin file (a customized forced EDID, actually, ) and edit a bunch of files ,etc. to make it work.

              In all these Years NO ONE (even Wayland devs that knowing the ins and outs of Wayland could have provided such a tool even if its not itself part of Wayland,) managed to make a program like XRANDR that would do this is in a easy like in Wayland no matter so many users need this...

              Anyway, AFAIK, as long as such thing doesn't exist, Wayland is not an option for me, EOD.

                  Translation: Yo, Wayland developers!!!! I demand you to leave everything that you are doing and start working on my demands!!!! It is your duty to work for free for me!!!! Now stop complaining and start to work!!!!

                    If wayland is abandoned, what is X then? When was the last release? Is there another release already planned?

                      Did you, at least, asked in the Freedesktop mailing list about this? Or you expect them to read your mind and say: "Oh, I'm receiving a mental complain from an user... It says... It says... Oh, it is not very clear... Oh, now! Yes! We haven't implemented XrandR-equivalent functionality in Wayland! That's it!"
