This is a tracker bug for issues related to Wayland, but not necessarily issues in Wayland itself (but instead bugs in compositors, toolkits and apps). If we want to have Wayland as the default display technology soon, we need to have an overall picture of all that is not working properly with it.
Here's a basic document for debugging Wayland issues:
If you find a bug related to Wayland but not in Wayland itself, set "Blocks: WaylandRelated" in your bug report to make it block this tracker. See
to see all such bug reports.
Here's a similar tracker in GNOME Bugzilla for those who report issues there:
Should this tracker bug include KDE-related bugs for plasma-wayland sessions? I'm asking since I finally managed to get plasma-wayland running but it has quite _many_ bugs. And because KDE/Plasma is not the primary Fedora desktop environment, of course. If not: Should we have a separate tracker bug for KDE wayland issues?
Christian, good question. This tracker was meant to help with "Wayland by default in Fedora Workstation" feature, which means GNOME. But it certainly makes sense to have a similar tracker for KDE. I have created bug 1298494 for these purposes with KDEWaylandTracker alias, please use that one for KDE+Wayland issues. Thanks for your work on this.
I have accidentally changed state.
sudo gparted /dev/sde
No protocol specified
[08:34 leslie ~]$ sudo gparted
No protocol specified
(gpartedbin:375): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display: :1
From a Gnome terminal, I want to invoke gparted.
I have 5 disks, and want to use gparated against one of them.
Until this action from terminal is enabled I will not be able to do adequate Wayland testing.
Leslie, this is a tracker bug. You need to file separate bugs, not commenting in this one. There is already a bug filed about your problem. Please see bug 1274451.
From the Gnome command line, and X11,
sudo gparted will start gparted
example: sudo gparted /dev/sdb to graphically present /dev/sdb
But with Wayland
This item is broken. It has to be fixed to support Gnome and Wayland.
Leslie, yes, we know. This bug is not for discussing specific issues.
Go to https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1274451 to follow the progress on that particular issue with sudo.
I pointed out a change in functionality regarding the adding of UUIDs to fstab.
It is very important to realize that the way it is done with F23 and earlier versions needs to be incorporated into F24 (Undo the changes that breaks the exiting way)
Consequences of not doing it. DNF release upgrade.
When we will run DNF to upgrade the system f23->f24, and this issue is not resolved, the updated system may fail to boot. That will be due to the fstab rules for F24. It does not match F23 and it's predecessors.
Leslie, bug 1318473 is not related to Wayland. This is a tracker bug for *Wayland*. Also, it is a *tracker* bug, which means discussion happens in individual bugs blocking this one, not here (which you have been informed of twice already). Please don't make this bug tracker a mess, there are people following it. Thank you.
