    Phoronix: Wayland For KDE Plasma 5.9 Should Shape Up Quite Nicely

    Plasma 5.8 was only released at the beginning of October but already there has been a number of Wayland improvements queuing up for the next milestone, Plasma 5.9...

    Qt on wayland is shit at the moment. And they need to bring support for xdg_shell_v6 soon.

      Wayland on 5.8 is working alright. It feels like Plasma 5.2 in terms of maturity, which is pretty good for a different display server protocol. Only real problems are how DPI scaling apps mix horribly with non-scaling ones, a lot of icons seem to be missing, and KWin doesn't apply window effects consistently (sometimes windows insta-minimize, sometimes they scale properly). Oh, and SDDM crashes if you sign out of a Wayland session. Overall though you could use it right now, which is an alright place to be.

        What's wrong with the current Qt on Wayland? I have no experience with it contrary to GTK3 on Wayland.

          That's one of the improvements that will be in 5.9.

            I still wait for the day where multiscreen improvements/fixes will stop appearing in each and every Plasma release. And yes, I know part of the issues lie with Qt, not Plasma itself, but the outcome is still the same.

                Every time I go into the comments I see people complain about multi-screen. Do that many people really use more than one monitors at home? At work, practically every person does, but really? at home?

                  1. many people work at home

                  2. laptops are also good candidates for this, quite a few have a docking-station-like setup where they connect the laptop to a screen and a usb port for a hub with keyboard/mouse and turn their laptop in a desktop when at home

                  3. yes, really, at home. Stop looking at me like that.

                  4. someone may want to be able to replace his work setup with a linux system.

                    At work I use linux and a docking station thing, and I get laptop screen + external screen.
