Great work!

The Xorg patches define an experimental (unmerged) Xorg extension. Support in the compositor is also required. There’s no support for this extension in Gnome Shell, only experimental (unmerged) support in wlroots/sway. Supporting this in Gnome would require new patches, alike wlroots and sway needed.

No compositor is going to accept the patches until the extension (or another mechanism) is accepted into mainline Xorg. This is why I made the AUR packages with the HiDPI patches, so we can have the future right now.

I also maintain the two packages for sway and wlroots with support for that extension.

Ah, so this will only work on Sway (or any wlroots based environment)? There's no config file hidden somewhere so this can be made to work with Gnome shell?

(Btw: I think Sway is amazing in the way it can be configured etc, but I just can't get into such a keyboard-heavy environment :))

@skerit this works with my setup ;)

See explanations here:

What is this supposed to fix? X11 apps are still blurry under Wayland when using fractional scaling.

And now the patch no longer applies.

E: Never mind, I see it needs to be applied to a clean source tree, or else it fails due to the new files already existing, which git reset doesn't take care of.

Hi! Thank you :) This bug should be reported upstream, but you probably need to investigate its origin. It could come from XWayland, wlroots, Sway, or a strange interaction between the three. I could be a problem with your graphics card driver. There’s not much I can do from here. If you know how to bisect code, that could be a start.

Hi there, first: thank you. Your package has single handedly made my experience using Wayland wonderful since I first gave it a go in mid-May.

I recently upgraded and have started facing some serious flickering in apps running under Xwayland. I recorded a short screencast at showing the visual artifacts and flickering I've only started to see since the recent upgrades to this package.
