xwayland update for x86_64
« on: November 28, 2023, 08:51:55 PM »
Hi Juanito. I see you are the maintainer for xwayland.tcz. Would you kindly update this extension in x86_64 repo when you have a chance?

I'm experiencing an Xwayland-related bug in labwc that the labwc developers cannot reproduce. I'd like to exclude the bug being due to xwayland.tcz being too old before I investigate further. Thanks in advance :)

P.S. The issue is tooltips in xwayland windows which refuse to go away, even after mouse pointer has moved away from the button associated with the tooltip. I reported it to labwc developers here: https://github.com/labwc/labwc/issues/1234

I just realized that xwayland is intertwined with all of Xorg and that this is a whopper of a request.

I'm going to solve my problem by disabling tooltips, which I have no use for anyway. Please disregard the thread.

Eu queria muito testar o wayland, mas meus drivers proprietários estão incorretos.

Também, realmente é uma má prática compilar programas para X hoje em dia (no caso recente de aMule), uma vez que diversas fontes diferentes afirmam a depreciação do X.
E também com certeza xwayland não deveria ser uma boa prática, mas sim converter os programas X para wayland ou simplesmente buscar alternativas. Por exemplo, o MPV do repositório atual está totalmente desatualizado, entretanto a versão mais recente do MPV está totalmente bloatware, nem parece que é MPV. Não há outra opção senão atualizar o MPV e recorrer a alternativas mais leves como MPLAYER.

Red Hat considers Xorg deprecated and will remove it in the next major RHEL release

Please use English in the common forum areas.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

CardealRusso, we can discuss in Portuguese here:
https://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php/topic,956.0.html

I just subscribed to that thread. You are also welcome to send me PM in Portuguese and I will respond in Portuguese.

We should be courteous and follow the forum's rules, which seem quite reasonable.

Wow, I was not expecting this. Thank you, Juanito.
