    Now if only I could get ffmpeg VAAPI (amdgpu) to work well also! Get one frame every 5 seconds only. Tried 30 fps @ 720p, exactly the same. It looks in the result like it's actually encoding a lot of frames, it's just the same frame over and over mostly...

    Which is what KDE did with Muon.
    This time KDE was faster.

    Hey! I'm doing those "modernize some small things" bit in Synaptic. If there was an easy path to actually get proper Wayland support I think it would have been done before me. Right now I'm trying to figure what's the proper way for software-properties to exist. Synaptic has it's own built-in alternative to that as well - and that needs to change to even consider Wayland.

    Wayland doesn't let applications run as root so it needs Synaptic to do some changes, such as using pkexec.
    I quite like Synaptic (though it's not my favorite package manager ever), but development is very, very slow, Recently, the one and only dev picked up a few commits to modernize some small things, but not bigger things. It's quite an archaic program that doesn't get the attention it needs, so I think it'll be a long while before Wayland will be supported.

    Wayland-compatible capturing by making use of PipeWire and Flatpak Portals
    For those that don't know Flatpak Portals is just a name for libraries managed/encapsulated by flatpak, e.g. Qt, gtk, etc, because "portals" sounds like a software hole into another dimension that gives you super powers, but it's just flatpak's way to call libraries.

    I've followed Georges Stravracas's work off and on for years. He's a beast ! And I second and third all the comments concerning Synaptic and Wayland. It's my daily driver for package installation and management of all things not Flatpaks or Snaps.

    shouldn't this be a non-issue with wayland not giving access to other windows when you have got just one window access anyways?

    Awesome! This support within OBS is a big missing puzzle piece for me, to switch to Wayland.

    That is not really true, but it needs some extra work between the compositor and the xwayland implementation.
    If I remember right, its already fixed on gnome since 3.34.

    I can not test it with Synaptic but with gparted on my Fedora machine. And it works just fine now.
    I would like to be able to run Synaptic on native Wayland without Xwayland.

    Yes, I remember so too.
    I've been using Synaptic for very long time too, and it is a great application, so I would miss it.

    Yeah, the last time I saw X11 apps being run by root was back in the Solaris 10 era (Oracle DB installer, SunStudio installer, etc).
    X11 as a protocol is too complex to guarantee safety as root. Especially with heavy toolkits such as Gtk, Qt or Java.
    Many X11 applications detect this and artificially fail if they detect root. I think XTerm did for a while (depending on compile flags I suppose).

    That said, it is the same with Wayland. Even if we could run Wayland clients as root, it would be a very bad idea.
    Maybe the toolkit instead of the application should detect this and refuse to run.
