    What would be the proper place to report two of my issues I'm having with GNOME 3.34?

    GNOME's Magnifier and Touchscreen

    I'm not sure if I should report a bug related to either Mutter or libinput regarding touchscreen in a convertible laptop. As far as I know, this will probably not affect Librem 5, as Librem 5 uses a different keyboard and compositor.

    GNOME Magnifier not taking advantage of 200% DPI scaling

    I have already reported the bug about the magnifier not working with HiDPI, but got no response so far.

    Any help is appreciated.

      It was third party developers that forked GIMP. Not GNOME project. So your comment doesn't make much sense

        Also, the name "git" is a perfectly good verb in the American Southwest and in gaming circles (git gud). That's a little different.

            The issue seems affecting mainly Xorg session. GNOME Magnifier works as intended on Wayland session as tested on Fedora 31 Workstation running on Wayland by default. The hardware for test is 2018 HP Envy x360 Ryzen 2500U Convertible.

            I have already reported the bug about the magnifier not working with HiDPI, but got no response so far.

            Any help is appreciated.

            Your bug report is incomplete. Make sure to include the hardware information reproducing the issue, the name of the distribution where the issue occurred and which session (Xorg or Wayland).

              mutter and Gnome-shell saw a LOT of improvements but haven’t released yet.

              This is a another recent major performance gain and power saver.

                This one should also help:
                https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gobje...d1d996a6b64b67

                gjs in gnome-shell calls that g_irepository_find_by_type function with private gtypes a lot for some reason. So lots of useless "scan the whole public repository for the type, only to find nothing and return NULL" will be gone in 3.36. It could improve animation performance and reduce lag on older machines, and save power on all machines.

                  For me, if they drop javascript for extensions (that OFTEN causes freezes and crashes to my gnome-shell) would be a GREAT advance....
