Install plasma-workspace-wayland and then select Plasma (Wayland)
session in your login manager.
I'd say I was too optimistic, 5.8 is not yet there. But as always -
more folks trying it, more bugs, better feedback...
Thanks. I tried it but it's not ready for prime time. It starts up and
seems to restore my session, but is very laggy. Plasma is
consuming around 70% of my CPU (an i7 with 16GB). It also dies when
logging out (i.e. I get a blank screen and have to reset the box).
Back to X for now.
