Wayland Kinda Destroyed Everything in Dr460n1zed

Hello! I tried to use wayland with KDE Dr460n1zed by installing plasma-wayland-session and everything kinda became half-dead. Latte dock bottom panel is just a black box and hovering over it just showed a box with "dolphin" written on it, rofi opened and didn't close, ulauncher didn't work, my second monitor got stuck at login screen etc. I had to switch back to x11 to fix everything. It seems that optimus-manager-qt didn't autostart. Any idea why this might be? I suspect thats due to me not doing a very simple step as always.

Thanks for helping!

My personal experience with Wayland on KDE: lots of stuff is not ready yet (appmenu support was not working properly for example along with applications like flameshot not working at all)
So unless you have a good reason to use Wayland I'd just stick to X11


Oh alright then. Wayland worked fine in gnome and I saw KDE got some support as well, didn't expect anything this bad. x11 is pretty old now and I would like to something new which works faster, but I think that I have to just wait for now.

Yes, KDEs support for Wayland got better with the last updates but for my personal taste its not usable with dr460nized (force blur is also not working, ugh! :joy:)


GNOME wayland support is most likely the best of the desktops.

nope, pretty expected, as its what happened to me also. Sorry
