Dear Opensuse Team,
I wanted to ask how do I switch from x11 to Wayland, because my Laptop doesn’t accept Wayland? I already tried to change it in the System setting, but I am being always
thrown back to the login panel. Even tough, I restart my laptop. I can’t log in!
Thanks a lot!
Dear Opensuse Team,
It is not at all clear what you are asking.
What desktop environment are you using?
What where the actual steps that you tried?
What you posted did not give us any useful information.
To illustrate: I use the KDE desktop (Plasma 5). The login screen includes a place where I can select whether to use Plasma Wayland or Plasma X11 (and some other choices. The default is Plasma X11, because it remember that is what was last used.
although I am not the original poster, I can describe the problem:
Opensuse: Tumbleweed, standard installation with KDE and latest updates
On the sddm login screen, you can choose between KDE X11 and KDE Wayland (and another, which is not used).
Choosing KDE X11, after entering the password the session is started with nice KDE.
However, choosing KDE Wayland, after entering the password, the screen goes black for a moment and then the sddm login screen is shown again…
Are there any logs which could tell what goes wrong or what is missing?
I think that means something is crashing. It might be a display driver issue.
You can try disabling compositing to see if that helps.
“journactl --user -b” to see what happened for your user. System logs (journalctl -b) may provide some useful information.
so I still have this problem, are there any other ways to fix it?
NVIDIA involved?? KDE+NVIDIA+Wayland do not mix well
If you describe more about your setup like DE, Graphics Card there is a chance that it will be fixed.
so I have KDE+AMD Radeon Graphics+Wayland
openSUSE version? KDE version? Graphics chipset details? Please run the following command and report back

Next steps for troubleshooting…
So I did it and this is the result:
Error: could not determine $DISPLAY.
Error: Can not contact kdeinit5!
org.kde.startup: “kdeinit5_shutdown” () exited with code 255
startplasma-wayland: Shutting down…

Should I send the Journal?
For lengthy output, you can share using susepaste.org, and you can install the susepaste package to run a command (script) of the same name, using something like
journalctl --user -b | susepaste -t "journal output" -e "86400" -n "Joe"
then post the link that it provides here.
Ultimately you will likely need to submit a bug report for this problem.
