    Phoronix: GNOME Merges Wayland DRM Lease Protocol For Better VR Handling

    Merged today into GNOME's Mutter compositor is support for the Wayland DRM lease protocol to allow for nice virtual reality (VR) headset support for GNOME on Wayland...

    At least its the protocol every other compositor and valve agreed to support and not the portal that would of had zero supported software

      I think the article should mention that the final mergre request was based on the work of Sebastian Wick (which was on top of the work by Jonas Ådahl​).

      it is important because a cult has formed that has the conspiracy that Sebastian Wick was trying to sabotage everything (based on the personality of a loudmouth with 2 os in its name).

          You have to understand this poor Vista Yosemite guy...

            I'm glad to see more VR support on Linux!

              Yeah, the original thread about this was pretty disheartening. With the other accent color post, we get two examples in one day on Phoronix were GNOME devs wanted to go their own way with little regard for the actual end result for their users.

                I love you manage to turn "yay, two new important features!" into a moanfest about why couldn't they develop the feature your way.

                if you want a say in how a feature is developed, you get a voice by doing the work.

                  I don't want them developed "my way". It's a moan fest about these things taking years to merge because GNOME devs aren't good at working with anyone outside of GNOME. In general GNOME users would benefit from getting these features sooner, and users of other DEs that are trying to push for interoperability would benefit if there wasn't this constant obstinate attitude even when the right thing to do for their users is obvious. E.g. merging this protocol vs. dicking around arguing about portals forever.

                    If in the end Wick did eventually base his work on the solution that was adopted everywhere else, my understanding is that Gnome got VR support ~2 years late because he and others wanted things done their own inconvenient way and refused PRs on the basis that they did not like the consensus based solution.

                    Gnome needs to loose the attitude that Hardware support can wait years if their Right Way isn't adopted. Unsupported Hardware is not a petty question of preference. It makes the system unusable and should be ultra-prioritised.
