Oh OK thanks. I just read the rest of the comments.
Surely this kind of bug should be a top priority? Having a good user experience of the desktop is vital.
In my opinion yes that should be top priority and it should be fixed a long time ago because performance is a vital part of usability, it’s not that gnome is totally unusable right now but it’s definitely the most laggy/jerky desktop around along with its forks and that’s sad because gnome used to be relatively fast back then and now it’s the slowest
I really want to use it but just can’t stand that jerkiness. It seems I will stay with kde for a long time since it’s the smoothest tear-free and actively developing desktop environment.
That bug is for Wayland. I’m defaulting to x11.
Wayland is still generally buggy and doesn’t work with Nvidia.
A modern desktop like Gnome on x11 should be buttery smooth.
Yes sure it’s for wayland but if you see the few last comments you’ll see that people argue for xorg as well.
Wayland is still a beta software and is laggy and buggy, it’s much worse than xorg currently in almost every aspect.
Gnome isn’t smooth at all on X, I get this laggy/jerky window movement even without extensions. I have tried gnome 3.24.1 and nothing has been fixed yet. It becomes more noticeable if you use graphics-intensive apps.
I have this issue to all of my PC and I get the same lag. It’s definitely a gnome issue that also affects cinnamon and budgie. With KDE I get the smoothest experience I have ever had with Linux, though I’m not the biggest fan

- Nvidia 1050ti (nouveau and nvidia)
