    I will likely switch to Wayland with that (just hope other software, like SMPlayer, won't be too buggy).
    Couldn't get SMPlayer to work under wayland so moved to QMPlay2 which works very nicely.
    miss a simple screen recorder, don't really want to install OBS.

    Does anyone uses KDE Wayland on NVIDIA? I'm using Gnome Wayland on NVIDIA and it works fine for me.

    Well to be fair, Plasma-X11 is already pretty solid, so i'm not in the least surprised that there are way more wayland-specific fixes compared to x11-specific fixes...

    Just for reference, - regarding KDE and X11 it may bring a noticeable performance and stability improvement to try out EGL instead of GLX. This can be achieved through the "KWIN_OPENGL_INTERFACE=EGL" or the "KWIN_COMPOSE=O2ES" environment variable.

    The first one just switches GLX to EGL, while the other one changes the entire compositing to OpenGL ES 2.0. This is especially for older and weaker hardware recommended but it may limit some graphical effects of some plasma themes. More information can be found here: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=442386

    - Plasma's Wayland session has re-introduced the notion of the "primary monitor" for the same behavior as accustomed to under X11.
