Last year, I heard that Nvidia began to support Wayland somehow. Today, I installed Gnome Manjaro on a PC with an RTX card, and by default, it was using X11. I searched the web, and enabled Wayland.
A person on a webpage said that Nvidia does not support hardware acceleration for XWayland, but a different person on a different page said that NVidia did not support XWayland hardware acceleration before driver version 470. I checked the installed driver version, and it was 510.
I have done some testing, and there are two weird things so far.
- Blender’s menu item does not appear when I click it. It appears only when I move the mouse cursor after I clicked it.
- Krita’s new document page does not show up. If I disable hardware acceleration in the settings (OpenGL) then it appears.
Does this mean that Nvidia really does not support Xwayland hardware acceleration and Nvidia cards are de-facto unusable for Wayland? If it is currently unusable, is there known information if or when Nvidia is going to support it? Or is it sort of hopeless and it is probably good idea to give up the hope of using Wayland with Nvidia?
I would like NOT to use Nvidia, but damn AMD sucks with Blender rendering performance.
