Thread: X or Wayland

  1. #31

    Default Re: X or Wayland

    I've tried two other distros that offers a live environment with KDE and wayland:

    • Fedora uses XWayland and its firefox cannot be started in full wayland mode, it still depends on X11
    • Rebecca Black OS: I've downloaded a firefox nightly and started it, it still more or less hangs, sometimes you can enter something in the address bar, mostly it takes the input when you switch to another tab and back again

    So probably its possible that the problem is in KDE since it is working fine in GNOME. I did not find any bugs related to this issue at

  2. #32

    Default Re: X or Wayland

    As mentioned before there is already a bug filed in the opesuse bugzilla, someone proposed there to use an older version of firefox (<=69.0.3) to get it to work. I've tested this with the following results:
    This is halfway a workaround, I've tested it on two machines:

    • One is a workstation with a radeon graphics card, here the old version is running relatively smoothly, sometimes pop-ups (menus or search proposals when you enter something in the address bar are completely black), but more or less you can work
    • The other one is a lenovo yoga with a built-in intel graphics card, here I have more issues, sometimes when I swich between tabs the page not changes, or when I enter a website, I have to switch to another tab and to get this site rendered

    Here the link to this bug:

    You’re absolutely correct. I just checked my KDM dependencies with »ldd«, and I was utterly wrong to assume that the kdm binary would load any KDE/Qt libs at all:
    rig:~ ▶ ldd /usr/bin/kdm
   => /usr/lib64/ (0x00007f6051489000)
   => /usr/lib64/ (0x00007f6051285000)
   => /usr/lib64/ (0x00007f605107f000)
   => /lib64/ (0x00007f6050e70000)
   => /lib64/ (0x00007f6050c68000)
   => /lib64/ (0x00007f60508ae000)
   => /usr/lib64/ (0x00007f6050685000)
   => /lib64/ (0x00007f6050481000)
   => /usr/lib64/ (0x00007f605025b000)
   => /lib64/ (0x00007f605003d000)
            /lib64/ (0x00007f60519f7000)
    rig:~ ▶ _
    (For giggles, do the same for the sddm binary. The list of libs will be quite a bit longer, I assume.)

    Still, due to its quick startup, I’ll keep using my slightly outdated KDM (package version 4.11.22, build date 2018-05-15) to auto-login to KDE/Plasma5. Cheers!
