Description Neal Gompa 2021-10-20 10:38:46 UTC
This bug was initially created as a copy of Bug #2015741

Description of problem:
The GNOME Classic session is only available as an X11 session, even though it's compatible with Wayland. There's no technical reason that this should only be available through X11, given that the difference between the main and classic session is running the same program with an environment variable that starts in "classic mode".

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install CentOS Stream 9
2. Login with "GNOME Classic"

Actual results:
GNOME Classic is started as an X11 session.

Expected results:
GNOME Classic is started as a Wayland session.

Additional information:
There's an upstream fix for this: https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gnome-shell-extensions/-/merge_requests/195

See bug 1595825 for where we added a wayland classic session for rhel 8.

Login screen has two options for Classic Gnome Classic and Gnome Classic on Xorg.
Option Gnome Classic started classic session under wayland for me:
