@vincent.ducamps that is good news. Wayland is a lot more secure - it will be good to be on it again.

@stuzenz personaly I use it with wayland and no problem meet for the moment

@vincent.ducamps: Until we find a better way to automatically write/reset dconf settings, remove the dbus bit. It seems to be causing more issues than it solves.

If someone can help to clarify:

Does anyone know if gnome-shell-extenision-pop-shell is now compatible with wayland? I previously disabled wayland a couple of months ago as per below due to a number of issues/bugs that seemed to exist for pop-shell to work properly with wayland.


# Comment out again when I want to use wayland

I notice that with the current arch package here (r576.fd2380c-1) that it now has a dependency on dbus-x11 (due to me not using wayland). If I try to install dbus-x11 it has dependency conflicts as below:

Package conflicts found:
 -> Installing dbus-x11 will remove: dbus, dbus (libdbus)
 -> Conflicting packages will have to be confirmed manually
[Repo Make:2]  xmlto-0.0.28-4  doxygen-1.8.20-1
[Aur:1]  dbus-x11-1.12.20-1

Which leads me to wonder if pop-shell is now working nicely with wayland which will stop me having to satisfy dependencies (and associated conflicts) on a path that will hopefully be deprecated one day. Can someone please let me know what combination is working well at the moment?

Vincent, Thanks for maintaining the package! I really do like this tiling manager with gnome3.

@yochananmarqos So we can't use the origin dbus in the future?

yochananmarqos commented on 2020-10-14 20:12

@vincent.ducamps: No, that issue happens when the install file executes which is in a chroot. See PKBUILD: install.

@yochananmarqos do you use gnome on your root session?

yochananmarqos commented on 2020-10-14 18:27

@laichiaheng: See my comment below, you'll need dbus-x11.

@vincent.ducamps: Turns out each dconf reset ... command has to be done one by one, the way I had it didn't work. See my changes.
