So I just transitioned all of my machines (2 desktops and 1 laptop) to #kde #wayland, and am happy to report that everything is working flawlessly (yes, even the games and #steam, and yes, I use #amd graphical card - an RX580).

And the reason I took so long to switch is not because that I dislike #wayland or anything (in fact, I’m 100% neutral on the whole #wayland vs #xorg fiasco), but because I have a workflow that relies heavily on various tools that only work on #xorg. All of which I finally have time to replaced with equivalent ones that works on #wayland.

And speaking of #emacs on #wayland. It works flawlessly, of course. But for the best experience, make sure your #emacs is compiled with the pgtk (“pure” #gtk) support. I had to recompiled mine, but if you on #kubuntu/#ubuntu 23.10 (or later), then the one in the repository should be good to go.
