GNOME Wayland Session


  1. Boot a Fedora Workstation live image or default installed system
  2. If using an installed system, use the default session when logging in

How to test

  1. Check Wayland is used by default: ps -C Xwayland will usually show one or two instances, and ps -C Xorg should show none
  2. Launch applications both with the X11 backend and with the Wayland backend
    1. GDK_BACKEND=x11 gedit
    2. GDK_BACKEND=wayland gnome-calculator

Expected Results

  1. The desktop will appear as normal, no visible difference from the X11 session
  2. Applications work
