This page tracks the Wayland showstoppers through out the stack == General issues == === NVIDIA === The NVIDIA blob is not supported as it uses a custom EGL extension. It would require additional code just for NVIDIA. On the other hand many users are on NVIDIA. Further information: [https://blog.martin-graesslin.com/blog/2016/09/to-eglstream-or-not/ To EGL Stream or Not] and [https://blog.martin-graesslin.com/blog/2017/10/plasmawayland-and-nvidia-2017-edition/ Plasma/Wayland and NVIDIA – 2017 edition] === NVIDIA + XWayland === XWayland also uses the DRM/GBM mechanism. Due to that XWayland is not supporting OpenGL on NVIDIA even if KWin would support NVIDIA's eglstream. This would result in a terrible experience for all gamers. === QT_QPA_PLATFORM === QT_QPA_PLATFORM is set to wayland breaking any application which has Qt included (e.g. appimages, proprietary software) and doesn't have wayland QPA. '''Fixed''' by not setting the variable in system, but let every app decide on itself. Should be revisited once we can rely on Qt 5.11 and its new QT_QPA_PLATFORM behavior. === No remote support === We don't have an API yet for remote support. Even if we had things like TeamViewer would not work any more. '''Partly fixed''' since we now have an API for screencast using a separate KWayland interface. There is also already support in xdg-desktop-portals for convenience of other apps and general support in Flatpaks. What's still missing is an API for remote input. == Input == === No (wacom) Tablet support === KWin lacks integration the tablet support from libinput. Also KWayland lacks wrapping the API for it. === No configurable gestures === X has the ability to accept fake input events to allow programs such as Easystroke. With the new security model of Wayland, such a program would need to be part of the compositor. === No XModmap === We lack a functionality like XModmap to remap keys. See [https://github.com/xkbcommon/libxkbcommon/issues/40 xkbcommon-issue40] == Plasma == === Virtual Desktops === We don't have an API yet for virtual desktops, so pager is not working === No window thumbnails === We don't have an API yet for window thumbnails. === No window move on empty area in breeze === Broke with switch to XdgShellV6. Needs new API added to Qt (native interface), KWayland and Breeze. === Logout === [https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=372789 There's a crash I know] (but fixing properly breaks X). [https://github.com/sddm/sddm/issues/897 Might be more stuff with SDDM], needs investigation === No activities === Activities are probably not a must-have feature, but anyway this is annoying for those who got accustomed to them on X11. == Qt == === No animated cursors === See [https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-48181 QTBUG-48181] === wl_proxy_create_wrapper === http://bugs.kde.org/381630 (Fixed in Qt 5.9.5) === Key repeat not working === See [https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-55615 QTBUG-55615] === Compose key not working === Will be fixed in Qt 5.11, [https://wiki.qt.io/Qt_5.11_Release expected May 2018]. See [https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-54792 QTBUG-54792] '''Fixed''' in Qt 5.11 === No tablet support === QtWayland does not yet support the tablet API. So even if KWin had support Qt would not be able to use it. === Fullscreen does not work === see [https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-63748 QTBUG-63748] '''Fixed''' in Qt 5.12 Return to Plasma/Wayland Showstoppers.
