Wayland on Solus Gnome

Wed Jul 12, 2017 12:20 am

I am new to solus and i have been trying to find a way to enable a wayland session on Gnome instead of x11 I know that the packages are installed just a but stuck on getting it enabled and running. I am using an RX480 with the opensource amdgpu driver

I believe it was turned off as it was problematic

Certainly likely. Just a matter of it maturing a bit further to a stable point that we're happy offering it to users.
