    Phoronix: GNOME's Mutter Now Supports Screen Rotation On Wayland

    Thanks to work that landed today by GNOME's Carlos Garnacho, there is now support on the GNOME desktop for supporting screen rotation on Wayland...

    Awesome! Considering that Fedora is popular with developers and developers like monitors in portrait mode this is a great feature. Hope primary selection is next.

      Awesome I just got a 2-in-1 and rotation on Wayland was a concern for me.

        It'd be interesting to see a solution with the hardware cursors. Could maybe rotate the cursor bitmap.

          I wouldn't say the most advanced - it's the most complete (which is arguably better). KDE is more advanced but it isn't as polished.

            I'm a KDE person myself, but lovely to see the GNOME developers pushing Wayland support along! I might even have to give it a go just to see what it's like these days. (Not that I expect to stay -- I want all those configuration knobs! )

                I'll (initially) give you the benefit out the doubt as to whether you're trolling.

                Note that it says "Wayland". This is a "future tech not currently in use is one step closer to matching what we currently use" article. Remember, the whole point of Wayland is as a ground-up rewrite to fix the problems with X11 that are too fundamental to fix any other way.

                See The Real Story Behind Wayland and X. (Warning: Very entertaining talk ahead)

                  Indeed, I supposed he is trolling. Wayland is relatively new and they had to create their own implementation for it since they want mutter for compositing. It's a huge deal and gnome seems like it is far and away the most mature desktop enviornment.

                    We do? <3 generalisations - but for me - landscape is much nicer to use
