wayland is the default
the default in the config file is, as far as I know:

# Uncomment the line below to force the login screen to use Xorg
# WaylandEnable=false

Not sure whether it is needed to uncomment it and set it to true.
Did you change that to:
WaylandEnable=true
?

I have modified it that way because it was not working for default

… and now you are in the same situation - it doesn’t work (with your change)
so I’d try to revert it

I cannot help because my Gnome installation is in a VM - and Wayland doesn’t work there anyway.

I’d always use what works …

This information (presumedly from neofetch, or similar) isn’t really as helpful as you might think, and doesn’t provide much useful information. When someone asks for system information, please provide the output of the following command, instead:

inxi --admin --verbosity=8 --filter --no-host --width

That is all. Cheers.

:bangbang: Tip :bangbang:

When posting terminal output, copy the output and paste it here, wrapped in three (3) backticks, before AND after the pasted text. Like this:

```
pasted text
```

Or three (3) tilde signs, like this:

~~~
pasted text
~~~

This will just cause it to be rendered like this:

Sed
sollicitudin dolor
eget nisl elit id
condimentum
arcu erat varius
cursus sem quis eros.

Instead of like this:

Sed sollicitudin dolor eget nisl elit id condimentum arcu erat varius cursus sem quis eros.

Alternatively, paste the text you wish to format as terminal output, select all pasted text, and click the </> button on the taskbar. This will indent the whole pasted section with one TAB, causing it to render the same way as described above.

Thereby increasing legibility thus making it easier for those trying to provide assistance.

For more information, please see:


:bangbang::bangbang: Additionally

If your language isn’t English, please prepend any and all terminal commands with LC_ALL=C. For example:

LC_ALL=C bluetoothctl

This will just cause the terminal output to be in English, making it easier to understand and debug.
