Wayland is annoying me. You can't game with it, a lot of apps don't work properly (screen recording usually), and fractional scaling doesn't work. I know it's technically "the future" but I haven't managed to keep Wayland as my main session more than a couple of days every time I tried. So I'm stuck on Xorg still...

@lobau you mean fractional scaling _only_ works with it?

Screen recording - I mean apps need to be updated, but we have built-in recording in shell, and for heavy lifting OBS works perfectly.

Games - they... work fine? No idea what you mean really.

@alex_m it's impossible for me to launch Valheim on Wayland from Steam, even on XWayland. I have to be in a full Xorg session for it to launch.


@lobau hm, I think I've seen that with one specific game. What I did for that one was to run it in Proton instead. :)

That said, it's an issue with specific games, not a general rule.

@alex_m I've seen that with some other indie games. For a while I'd then switch to an Xorg session until I gave up and decided to live on Xorg since it's simpler...
