• How can I use wayland with KDE?


    Hello guys, this is my first post here :). I installed Antergos with KDE today and I am quite excited about it! First time I use an arch based distro (my main distro is Ubuntu MATE) and everything work really nice (I had some problems with playonlinux when I installed manjaro yesteday, so here I am giving Antergos a try 😜).

    One of the reasons I wanted to install Antergos, is to try wayland session. I installed the package plasma-wayland-session but even if I select “plasma (wayland)” from sddm menu, I see kwin_x11 and Xorg processes running at the System Monitor. When I try to run kwin_wayland from terminal I get this output:

    [[email protected] ~]$ killall kwin_x11
    [[email protected] ~]$ kwin_wayland
    No backend specified through command line argument, trying auto resolution
    kglobalaccel-runtime: Failed to register service org.kde.kglobalaccel
    QXcbConnection: XCB error: 3 (BadWindow), sequence: 179, resource id: 37748742, major code: 20 (GetProperty), minor code: 0
    Segmentation fault (core dumped)

    So, what do I have to do in order to run a Wayland session? My system info is this: http://pastebin.com/r19wVHYU

  • @ThanosApostolou See https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/KDE#Wayland It also need SDDM as display manager. Then you can pick the session on the login screen.
