[solved] Netrunner 19.01 desktop KDE wayland with Nvidia graphics card


#1

What is the current state for using KDE wayland support on Nvidia Cards like the Geforce GT 130M, is it possible? I read that KDE wayland will be in the future a replacement for Xserver.


#2

Current state is bad with the nouveau free software driver. I get constant GPU freezes.
The proprietary Nvidia driver is officially not supported yet. However they commited some code to support Wayland with their driver for Plasma.
As far as I know even at least one developer tested that and it was working.


#3

Thank you. When is this code usable for all?. How is the state for AMD graphics card?


#4

AMD and Intel cards usually work much nicer with their free software drivers. I have one Laptop here running since months with Wayland and only noticed using it because virtual workspaces were not working.
This should be working with Plasma 5.15 btw.
