Isn't Wayland ready for use?

Facing problems with Wayland.

First one is, there is no feedback while opening application. Here is my settings:

Second problem is, there are random noise pixels around tooltips of window title bar.


The third problem is, touchpad not working…

But no issue with Xorg. Isn’t Wayland ready yet for use?

While I do think Wayland is ready for general use, there are still some papercuts.

Like the app launcher feedback not working.

I haven’t had any noise pixels on my end, so that seems to be GPU driver related.

My laptops touchpad works fine in wayland, so seems driver related too.

Actually, I can’t click with touchpad. But cursor is moving and buttons are also working fine.

So you mean tap-to-click?

I believe that’s something libinput is still missing. But you can get it, by installing xf86-input-synaptics, rebooting and then go into System Settings → Input Devices → Touchpad and you should be able to enable the setting there.

I didn’t know that I have to explicitly re-enable those settings. :face_with_raised_eyebrow:
It was there already… So 33% problem solved… :innocent: :crazy_face: Thanks…
