I’m using Manjaro KDE Plasma with X11 and I’d like to switch to Wayland. However, when I choose “wayland” in the SDDM login manager and log in, the screen just goes black and then back to the login manager. Only X11 works.
How can I debug what is going wrong? I have not configured anything special. I believe I only installed wayland.
Thanks. It kind of works. I do get some frequent flickering and cursor issues. I have a few questions:
Is it expected to be better with other (free) drivers? Do I need the same settings (mkinitcpio, grub parameters) for other drivers, too? Does GPU performance decrease with other drivers? The free driver is from 2018 and not updated since? I did:
> mhwd -li
NAME VERSION FREEDRIVER TYPE
video-nvidia 2021.12.18 false PCI
video-linux 2018.05.04 true PCI
But not sure how to activate the free drivers.
Is Wayland not mature enough or why does it flicker?
The nouveau driver is blacklisted to prevent people from using it and then getting poor gaming performance.
Most accounts of this issue happening are old but I’m getting flickering issues as well.
Maybe try switching nvidia driver version? 390 and 470 are still kept around iirc. I haven’t tried switching versions myself, so I can’t say if it’ll work.
