  • QWayland and client windows decorations

    Hi All,
    While implementing Wayland compositor based QWayland module from Qt5.7 I noticed some interesting side effect of using multiple extensions plugins. As shown here each client application have their own windowing style/theme. Problem is that, I need to support both native Linux application(using Xdg shell extension) and custom application(using Qt --platform Wayland switch and default Wayland shell).

    Is there easy way to make windows style/theme consistent?

    On the other hand after some searching, it turned out that Wayland by default uses "client side decoration". In my case using "server side decoration" is one of possible solutions.
    Are there any other alternatives?
