I have a question regarding X11 and the compositor. Now, I never had this issue before where the compositor would bug out sometimes and anything opened (even context menus and newly activated panels) would turn black. Forcing me to have to kill kwin or plasmashell.
I understand that Xorg is also on life support by this point. Could this be the reason for Xorg seemingly beginning to bug out more as newer versions of the KDE desktop are released? I would like to use Wayland, but certain things are sort of unstable (I was using it recently to see how far it has come along; seems like it has improved quite a bit as my fonts are rendered perfectly now).
It’s mainly migrating over to Wayland and working out the kinks. Such as getting Flatpak apps not to call for libraries (or whatever) belonging to X such as XCB; that, and finding a viable option for remote desktop that works on Wayland (really hoping Rustdesk will support Wayland fully soon). I heard the KDE devs were putting more of their focus into Wayland too.
Anyway, as bitchy as my bro is when it comes to his nitpicking and experience with Linux, I agree that Xorg is pretty ancient. But it has been stable thus far.
