I’ve had it with Wayland/Sway. After a week of trying, I’ve ditched it and gone back to X.org/i3.

I’ve had problems with clip board managers (cannot copy pictures++), Teams in Firefox (cannot share screen, depends on “operating system settings”, which doesn’t resolve to anything on my machine).
IntelliJ IDEA didn’t work on Wayland (still open issue on github), and Signal regularly froze. As did QEMU running a graphical VM, just gave me a blank screen.

Good to be back on X.org. Everything works. Command line tools, GUI tools. Just works.

I will come back and try Wayland/Sway again in a couple of years time and see where the experience is at then. As for me, Wayland is not ready yet.
