        Oh thank you guys. That is the one most annoying thing using KDE on Wayland. Is like I regressed to Windows...

        One can dream that they will back port this to Plasma 5.18 LTS ...

          Please tell me the "middle click paste" can be disabled in the options. It's one of the reasons I don't use linux was that I couldn't under X11.

            My main question for Plasma Wayland is still: can I use it with multiple monitors of different resolutions? If no, then I can't use it on my main system. (at least, as long as my projector is not upgraded to UHD)

              Plasma wayland supported different resolutions at different DPI's for quite a while now. You have to specify your own zoom-level per screen, and it works very well for wayland-aware apps. X11 apps unfortunately can't change their DPI, so you will get it blurry on any monitor that isn't set to "100%". But it works, and it works well.
              I was just waiting for middle-click paste and screen recording, which both seem to come in 5.20! Yay!

                Last time I tried (3 months ago), even with one single DPI setting, it didn't work and it was so slow that I just couldn't do anything, but maybe I just did no configured it correctly.
                I will spend more time trying on 5.20.

                  I tried with 5.17, and now running 5.18. I also have an Intel iGPU, in case that makes s difference?

                    Maybe in that case, middle clicked to scroll can be made to work in Firefox, as it does on Windows.
