wayland support

16 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.

Hello,

Any news regarding this? I don't mind if you add it to 1.x or 2.x, just something which works.

I'm also interested in this. I'm currently not able to use Synergy on Fedora 28 because of it.

If you don't need Wayland, you can just switch to X.org from the login screen. Clicking the gear button will reveal a list of available sessions, one of which will be the same session you use but on Xorg instead of Wayland. Selecting it will make it the default for subsequent boots.

Hi.. yeah.. I need wayland... 
Wondering if this is available yet? (does this provide impetus for me to upgrade to 2.x then)

Yeah Im on Fedora on all my desktops, laptops etc and Wayland is the default now for a few years. Can we PLEASE get support for what is now a defacto standard in the community!

I just switched from Xorg to Wayland on my Ubuntu 18.04 machine due to issues with Xorg (it crashes randomly ever since I switched to an AMD video card).

Synergy 1.10.1 works.

Kinda. I can type in the remote machine but Wayland appears to eat the Alt-Tab and gives it to GNOME even though the pointer is on the other machine.

Don't know the status of 2.x though.

Just installed 2.0.12.beta_b1677+0b61673b and the behavior is the same. Everything appears to work except alt-tab.

Nope, I stand corrected, it's not *quite* the same. Keyboard input for games stops working.

Ok, messing around 2.0 is pretty much unusable with Wayland. 1.10.1 works well enough until 2.1 get released. FYI.
