It would require additional code just for NVIDIA. On the other hand many users are on NVIDIA. Further information: To EGL Stream or Not 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. 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. 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. DRM Modes cannot be configured It's not yet possible to switch modes. Output cannot be rotated It's not yet possible to rotate the screen. 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 There's a crash I know (but fixing properly break X) 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 QTBUG-48181 wl_proxy_create_wrapper http://bugs.kde.org/381630 Key repeat not working See QTBUG-55615 Compose key not working See QTBUG-54792 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.
