I have an AMD 5700XT card and I installed Manjaro in October 2021. I don’t remember if I had to pick between X11 and Wayland during the installation, but X11 is what I ended up with.
What I wanted to know is if the reason I’m still on X11 is that Manjaro considers Wayland still too unstable with by video card (otherwise, some update would have migrated me to Wayland automatically?) or if I need to manually do something to migrate to it.
If migrating to Wayland is a manual process, can tell me what needs to be done to switch to it?
you can install “plasma-wayland-session” from the package manager. at login you can select wayland or X11 (left bottom of the login-screen) and use the selected session.
amd should work well with wayland, nvidia instead is a disgrace.
Probably a good thing that it’s not on the ISO. Even with my video card that works well with Wayland, the first thing I noticed is that fonts were no longer anti-aliased. It would give a bad first impression if fonts didn’t look right from the start.
