Windows go under "Always Visible" latte-dock panel in Wayland

In Wayland, windows seem to go underneath my latte-dock panel, which is set to “Always Visible”.
Take a look:

I have an Intel integrated GPU, and only one monitor.
Here is my inxi output…

Looks more like Latte Dock doesn’t go under your windows, not the other 'round. Should be a setting somewhere in Latte Dock.

But anyway:

“Always Visible” seems to mean that windows are supposed to go below the panel, and plus my current configuration works in X.Org.

I’m using latte-dock-git

That doesn’t change the end-of-life fact.

X != Wayland to start with.

It depends on what you said sho0uld always be visible. If you set it on Latte, well, that’s what it’s doing…Latte seems always visible. Remove it and test the results.

I think the problem seems to be latte doesn’t seem to support Wayland that much. Probably, latte is unable to tell Wayland how much space is available for the window.

I might be misunderstanding you here and I have never used Latte Dock before, and now that it’s discontinued I’d not recommend it.

But in your title, description and picture Latte Dock is visible, on top of the window. And apparently that is what you set it to. So your title seems that you’re upset that Latte Dock respects the settings.

However, I doubt that is what you mean. After your last message, I think you expect Latte Dock to be lower than the window, at the bottom of the screen, with the window open above it. In which case I think you are correct since I’ve read on here, at some stage, that Wayland doesn’t know Window dimensions and that would rely heavily on it.

For what you want, you can use a Panel instead, but on the other hand, looking closer, the Window Title Bar is under the Latte-Dock set as Panel, but is higher than it, hence looks like there is a gap.
