The driver shown is the same driver when running Gnome on Xorg.
The "driver" is not important. vmwgfx is the video driver used by your guest
the VMWare-gfx driver.
The important thing is "wayland server".

Sure.... Remember you're running Fedora in a VMWare Virtual Machine. VMWare is
The mobo VMWare emulates is an Intel 440BX.
So, all the HW that inxi reports is emulated HW.
Thanks Ed, I wasn't aware it
emulated the motherboard as well.
> Just one further question, how do I determine the dimensions of a 'Gnome
Terminal' Window? What I have just found is that if I click and hold the bottom right
hand corner of the window and scale the window, the issue occurs once I scale past certain
dimensions, whereas if I use 'konsole' instead of 'Gnome Terminal' it
doesn't matter what dimensions I run 'Konsole' at the issue does not occur.
I think you need to be a bit clearer.
When you run konsole, are you running it in the KDE Plasma Destop or the GNOME desktop?
I'm running konsole on the Gnome desktop. It doesn't exhibit the issue
when I get a full window when the window is maximised as Gnome terminal
does, but if I try to select and text in the window it then exhibits the
issue by removing the text I attempted to highlight.
Also, I only keep about 2 weeks of messages from this list on my server so I may have
I seem to recall you have both GNOME and KDE desktops installed on F31. So, how about
trying one more
thing? Instead of using gdm, switch to sddm. sddm being the display manager supplied by
Switch by doing
sudo systemctl --force enable sddm
And then reboot.
The inxi -GxxSMza command will should now show "Display: x11 server".
Then see how your GNOME desktop works.
I forced the swap of display manager and
rebooted the system.
Inxi -GxxSMaz gave me the following output:
Display: wayland server: Fedora Project X.org 1.20.6 driver: vmware
Even though it is using a different driver the issue still occurs.
I thought the issue might be being caused by setting the font scaling
factor in Tweak Tools->Fonts to 1.5, as windows does, but setting it to
1 made no difference to the issue.
