I tried KDE/Wayland on F27 about 6 weeks ago and found that some
programs worked and others didn't, so I reverted to Xorg.
I installed F28 Sunday night (2 days ago) and I was hopeful, so I gave it another go. I
think it is good enough to use now. After 2 days, I have not switched back. There are a
few pesky problems. At first, I kept getting LibreOffice without a frame, so I
couldn't resize the window.. I installed breeze-gtk and I also rebooted, so I'm
not sure what did it, but I think it works fine now.
The biggest problem so far is the clipboard. Again, in LibreOffice, I was unable to cut
and paste. As I type here, though, ctrl-c, ctrl-v and ctrl-z are working. Still, when I
check the clipboard widget,there is nothing there. I have it configured as per default,
not to synchronize the selection and the clipboard. So, using this setup of having the
clipboard and the selection separate, how do I ever get anything into the clipboard?
Anyway, while I haven't done much yet, other than installing and configuring the
system, and some browsing, I think I can use KDE with Wayland now. It has taken a long
time, compared to Gnome, to get to this point, but I am glad we have finally arrived.
The question I keep asking myself, without myself finding a good answer, is "what is
the benefit to the end-user to choose Wayland over Xorg"?
Conjecture is just a conclusion based on incomplete information. It isn't a fact.
