wayland support

7 posts in this topic

not sure when wayland support is planned, but linux is moving pretty fast in that direction. Doesn't effect me at the moment, but I'm sure my next upgrade will see wayland on my computer either alone or alongside X. Either way X is clearly on its way out.

they are thinking about doing this in 2.2, mid-2018.

that's what they told me 2/3 months ago. I wish I could upvote to make this happen faster. but the more people ask for it the faster it will be there.

It will be great if they make it. I'm with debian 10 buster and by default is wayland already. Pretty soon and the other distros will follow Debian.

I'm using Ubuntu, and waiting to upgrade until 18.04 next April. That will be Wayland by default as well, so I too hope they add this earlier than later. In my opinion Wayland support is much more important than being able to drag files accross computers or other items they've struggled with.

I use Windows, Mac, and Fedora so I would love if this gets done. I tried switching to x to get synergy 2 working but I have some other software that needs wayland so I currently can't use synergy 2 on my Fedora machine.

Still mid-2018, but it'll be 2.1 instead.
