Workrave has no Wayland backend; until such time that it has one, it simply won't work thereon.

Comment 3 Adam Williamson 2016-10-13 18:05:33 UTC
I don't think the resolution here is correct. Fedora's Workstation Wayland session is supposed to run apps that aren't yet ported to be native Wayland apps just fine; that's what XWayland is for. Almost all apps are still running through XWayland by default, in fact. So this is not an expected outcome.

Comment 4 Adam Williamson 2016-10-13 18:13:45 UTC
OK, I reproduced and filed a crash report with abrt, so marking as a dupe of that.
