Moving from Xorg to Wayland

This didn't work, disregard or use the following notes at YOUR OWN RISK! nothing terrible happened, just didn't work, I was able to revert easily. I may have even left the modeset=1 and had to start using prime-run because of it? Either way I'm planning on switching to a fresh Void Linux install for my daily driver on a new computer using AMD silicon. Dropping NVidia and Intel, sorry boys, enough is enough.

I'm hoping to fix problems with multiple DPIs over 2 monitors by switching to Wayland. Xorg requires me to do too much math!

I've added these lines to /etc/environment:



dwl tiling compositor -- yay dwl

add the kernel option to /etc/default/grub:

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="ibt=off loglevel=3 quiet nvidia_drm.modeset=1"

edit /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf:

  • commented out display-setup-script and session-wrapper lines

edit ~/.dmrc:

  • Session=dwl

edit SideBar
