    At least on Tumbleweed, KDE massively broke multi-screen support if something is rotated. 2 of my 3 screens are inoperable.

    The whole team is currently working on Wayland support for KDE. It's in preview mode. Why would you expect anything specific about a particular driver?

    It would have been listed as a known limitation if that were the case. But normally, if you can't finish the job, you don't merge at all.

    I know, but my time is limited and there are more interesting things to study. I did C/C++ like 15-20 years ago, decided it wasn't my cup of tea.

    That's why proper tests are layered. Unit tests, one or more layers of integration tests and finally some end-to-end tests, that have nothing to do with code and everything to do with use cases.

    If the issue was that the user was unable to run an executable at all, that's a pretty big use case to leave out. If the issue was the user was unable to launch an executable under certain conditions, then yes, it might have been something not anticipated.

    It's not wayland issue. With wayland this issue is a lot worse, because windows teleport themselves if you move them quickly after resize lag.

    Nice. That first-mentioned Dolphin issue was a frequent, if minor, annoyance (luckily I didn't encounter the second mentioned Dolphin issue, since opening the integrated terminal was part of my work-around!).
