FYI: Problems with Plasma, when using Wayland


I’m using X11, but tried Wayland briefly. These are bugs, that I discovered:

  • system hung couple of times about two minutes after login (pointer did not move). Only hardware reset woke system up.
  • mpv media player was out of screen borders, when maximize.
  • SMplayer was totally black, when palying videos.
  • file drag and drop from file manager (at least from Nemo) to mpv did not work.
  • when woke up system from sleep, screen was corrupted. Picture in attachment.

I’m not using Wayland, but X11, so these are not critical problems to me.

My system:

I close this case. It was information for Plasma and Wayland developers.
