Fedora Workstation Bringing Early Support For Blender On Wayland

Written by Michael Larabel in Fedora on 10 November 2022 at 04:39 AM EST. 4 Comments
While the release next month of Blender 3.4 is planning to ship with Wayland enabled, Fedora Linux 37 users are expected to soon find their packaged Blender versions already running with the Wayland support enabled.

Fedora's Blender 3.3 packages in Rawhide already have the Wayland support enabled and running well. The plan now is to bring those Blender 3.3 packages with Wayland flipped on to Fedora 37 users as a stable release update.

Luya Tshimbalanga shared the plan of this early Blender Wayland support for F37 users. A Copr build is available for Blender creators on Fedora if wishing to help in testing this early Wayland support before it hits Fedora 37 as an update.

Those on other Linux distributions can try the Blender daily snapshots if wishing to try out the native Wayland support ahead of the stable Blender 3.4 update.
