Wayland not working Cinnamon

I recently installed Garuda Cinnamon on my Asus G751JL laptop, but wayland seems to be not working.

Maybe due to nvidia driver problem, it is not working, I know Cinnamon Wayland support is experimental but I also tried GNOME wayland, Plasma Wayland, Hyprland also separately installing respective Garuda versions, but wayland doesn’t work at all.

Issue : Starting wayland session → black screen, freeze

I tried changing kernels : lts, zen, arch but still no difference

As per Archwiki, I tried most troubleshooting steps :

/etc/environment :

QT_QPA_PLATFORMTHEME=‘qt6ct’
MOZ_USE_XINPUT2=1
GBM_BACKEND=nvidia-drm
__GLX_VENDOR_LIBRARY_NAME=nvidia
ENABLE_VKBASALT=1
LIBVA_DRIVER_NAME=nvidia

File: /etc/dracut.conf.d/nvidia.conf

force_drivers+=" nvidia nvidia_modeset nvidia_uvm nvidia_drm "

Tried adding and removing one or more combinations of nvidia kernel parameters :

nvidia_drm.modeset=1 nvidia_drm.fbdev=1

File: /etc/modprobe.d/nvidia-power-management.conf

options nvidia NVreg_PreserveVideoMemoryAllocations=1


Please let me know if I am lacking one or more troubleshooting steps

Fix.

That was just because I upgraded repositories, after full system update, still the issue persists

Seems you must wait for wayland on cinnamon.

Have you searched in cinnamon forums?

Yes I searched but didn’t find any solution relevant and as I mentioned it is not only problem with Cinnamon Wayland, the same issue is there with GNOME, Plasma wayland sessions also.

Most probably it is due to nvidia somehow or other, rest parts are working properly

Yep.

You are using the lts kernel and have an older nvidia card, so try the nvidia-lts driver.

If that doesn’t help, try the linux-zen kernel in combination with the nvidia-dkms driver. Optionally try an older nvidia driver version.

If none of this works, then you will have to use X11 until further notice.

Tried using so, lts, zen, arch with respective drivers and using dkms also, but it didn’t work.

Anyway, I don’t find any solution currently so will stick to X11 instead, hope X11 support won’t end till few years, as Fedora is ending X11 support, GNOME and Plasma DEs are on the way to do so

Still Wayland is not so stable as X11 for many nvidia machines, but these people are after ending X11 support in near future

If you don’t need the full performance of the GTX 965M, then you have another option: the open source ‘nouveau’ driver.

it’s not just you, Wayland is currently NOT ready for use with NVIDIA users, don’t use it, it’s not really worth the headaches. Why it’s being pushed as the default, i don’t know as there’s alot of Linux users out there still using older Nvidia cards.

X11 works perfectly fine and just because they aren’t developing it anymore, doesn’t mean its going to stop working.

For nvidia wait for the 555 beta driver to come out this month an then try. Should hit around the 15th but that could change.
