• KDE Wayland ISO


    so tested out a new iso from kde that includes wayland as the default session. its a kubuntu build. wish i could say more about it but it crashed soon after the desktop came up. tried to open some menus and it just stalled out.

    so not much testing :laughing:

    im mostly interested in KDE because of them pushing wayland along. not sure why the rest of the linux community isnt making bigger strides? pretty much been talking about wayland for 5 years. time to make it happen :+1:

    What do you mean "why the rest of the linux community isnt making bigger strides? ". I am running Wayland :smile: with Gnome right now that I m typing this. No issues to report so far…

  • @anarch no you are quite right ;) it seems gnome is doing even better with wayland :) i just meant as default in many distros. is there one distro out there that uses wayland as default?

    @Wyn ya i know wayland is released but i dont think its stable to use.

  • @megaman : I think next Fedora release will be using wayland by default.

    @karasu , according to the Gnome roadmap, the wayland default implementation is scheduled with the release of 3.20 (in March, this is). So far, there are (minor) issues. Some Gnome extentions and Pamac applet (you are warned about updates in the notification area, though) are not compatible. Otherwise, it works like charm.

  • well thats good news if it is going default in some distros this year. just seems like something that should have been done long ago. been hearing about it forever.
