    Phoronix: SDL Tries Again To Prefer Wayland Over X11

    At the start of the year SDL attempted to prefer Wayland over X.Org/X11 thanks to the maturing Wayland support for this widely-used software/hardware abstraction layer by numerous cross-platform games. But that change was later reverted over ecosystem challenges around Wayland. Now as we approach the end of the year, SDL is again trying to prefer Wayland over X11...

          I just tested with few simple games like Xonotic and it works fine on Wayland, but still couldn't manage to make it open in full screen on second screen. I can move it around like any other window, but then changing resolution brings it back to the first output it can find.

              From popular cross platform games which supports Linux I believe Albion Online uses SDL. May be they will first to use it?

                  Sounds like what I do once every second year, ie try to run Wayland instead of x11. Either it doesn’t work at all, crashes after a few minutes, or has some weird bug(s) that make it unusable. And then I go back to x11 again.

                  Last time for me, which was around half a year ago, Steam Remote Play refused to work with Wayland, regardless of all the various combinations of pipewire launch options I tried. Perhaps next summer it’ll actially be usable on my desktop rig.
