Not asking for help on this one. Just my recent test of Wayland on this PC with a nVidia 2070 with proprietary drivers.
Konsole with transparency shows a cursor trail. I can turn off transparency and it looks great. Had to take a phone photo to capture what I was seeing. I have not noticed this anywhere else.

Just noticing that if I have one floating window in front of another, and I move the mouse over the one “in front / active / focused,” the borders, scroll bar and other things on the background application flicker.
Good deal. Just putting it out there, so you guys know to work on it. Like you, I want to see 6.0 be a great release. I still remember 4.0
I know you didn’t ask for help but I am still moving this to the help category to keep the Development section clean.
Imo such things should either be reported as a bug or we could have a dedicated thread for such things.
Just throwing this in there.
I have been on Wayland on my gaming desktop all afternoon. I have seen some screen flickering here and there, but I have been running Steam games just fine. The few little glitches I have, I can live with. I am going to try to stick with Wayland at least for a few days and see.
After a couple of days of Wayland + nVidia, I lived through it. I saw a lot of flickering in Brave and in YouTube videos. Some flickering in Steam, but it seems that all of my issues now are simple flickering.
I have not uninstalled the proprietary drivers and tried nouveau, so I cannot comment on that.
Do I blame the Wayland devs? Absolutely not. I will put the blame right were it belongs, on nVidia.
