I am not in KDE SIG, but as person who has been testing Plasma on
Wayland since many months, my opinion is that Plasma is not ready at all
for Wayland as default option. The concrete risk is that this decision
will push a lot of Fedora users away from Fedora KDE Spin, seriously.
Forcing Wayland as default session only for innovation sake, is not a
Some of problems I experienced:
- **very, very** frequent plasma crashes;
- **very** frequent crashes of applications, even KDE applications like
Konsole, Konversation, etc.
I don't see many crashes but yes, it crashes time to time.
- Qt and Gtk applications have two different copy&paste stacks;
- virtual desktops are not working;
- mouse pointer has an insane dimension (it got bigger);
- misplaced notification popups;
- sometimes when shutting down the system, the system does not
forcing the user to unplug the power cable or use Magic Sys Req if the
user is so lucky to have it enabled. I have heard this has been fixed
but I haven't tested it yet;
- odd behaviour of various applications.
Most of my issues with Plasma & Wayland are somehow related to
external monitor setup. I switched from three screens to two screens
setup and it's a bit better but I can see crashes when second monitor
is disconnected, misplacements (krunner opens on second inactive
screen). On the other hand, on single screen setup it progressed a lot
and it's closer to be usable as a daily driver.
To be honest, I'm really not sure how to help with Wayland - I have no
idea how to debug things and a lot of issues are just some strange
behavior that's difficult to explain and reproduce :(.
One big missing feature is screen sharing - I already migrated a lot
of folks here using Red Hat to G-S X11 session...
I couldn't make Tuesday's meeting...
