Currently I'm running Garuda Dr460nized KDE Gaming Edition and personally I've enjoyed the experience thus far. However, I've noticed a fair amount of issues, which I believe to stem from the fact that KDE uses Xorg X11 by default, and that Wayland is not supported.

I've used other DEs like GNOME on X11 and have had no problems, but since Plasma has a lot more going on visually, it heavily suffers from the overall slowness from X11. I've noticed anywhere between minor to major FPS drops in games, but have not experienced these drops in other DEs / Distros.

So my main question is, is there any plans for support of KDE Plasma on Wayland, and if so when could it be expected?

If you are just saying that you want to try plasma wayland than install plasma-wayland-session
And wayland-protocols too..
(you just need to install it and then change to plasma wayland from log in screen)

sudo pacman -S wayland wayland-utils xorg-wayland plasma-wayland-protocols plasma-wayland-session lib32-wayland

all packages that are crucial for wayland to work properly are in this command :wink:

It is already ongoing. For quite some time.

How much time have you to contribute to the effort?

I have those two packages installed, yet Wayland sessions are entirely broken, and eventually the screen goes completely black.

I personally wasn't aware, as most search results I've seen have been in relation to "Why KDE Plasma doesn't work on wayland", and not regarding an ongoing effort.

I am not a display server developer, I have no clue how they work aside from the "lifecycle" if you will and the timeline of how the image is processed. If I could contribute in some way I could, whether that be in the form of testing things, or somehow working on it directly myself.

I don't think Nvidia and wayland is good combination.

This thread is going well off-topic for something that's supposed to be "feedback".

If OP wants to get KDE+NVIDIA+Wayland working then checking the Arch wiki before opening a specific thread would be a better way forwards.

KDE devs have been working with the Wayland team since basically the beginning. It's NVIDIA who has been thumbing their nose at Wayland the whole time.
