@treba, thanks for the explanation. would be nice in the future (especially for things as critical as Fx and for such a noticeable defect) there would be a warning or notification posted on the change so when people are testing they would be aware. I understand that everyone can't be warned of everything, but if we're aware, it would be nice to make an attempt so people don't spin their wheels for nothing.


There is an unbelievable atrocious slowness when trying to use Fx Wayland on KDE - which is additionally very concerning since F34 is slated to have Plasma Wayland as the default. Previous version worked fine. Workaround is to use X11 version, which appears to run fine. I see from the comments in the spec file that the wayland backend was disabled... which would imply to me that folks that are on kde wayland that were using fx-wayland wouldn't be affected... that whatever would be done in the background - but that doesn't appear to be the case.

Thanks for your work on getting this applied so quickly. Much appreciated! Circumvents the current issue, but concerned it does not appear to be a long term solution. I updated BZ#1912046. When this issue surfaces, it is extremely disruptive.

BZ#1754395 Qt applications lose system theme if launched via dbus activation (from flatpak applications or krunner)
BZ#1897717 Plasma 5.20 has Black desktop screen when using wayland in conjunction with SDDM

Guys, this update needs to be pulled immediately - it simply isn't acceptable to delay and have a discussion about it. It's wreaking havoc. It is completely unacceptable to have something causing such disruption still in updates-testing going on 48 hours now.


Seems to be issues with addons using firefox-wayland. When accessing extensions receive blank white window. I haven't noticed this when using the non-wayland version.

Still black screen when using wayland in combination with SDDM and radeon. I've updated #1897717 Updates work fine when using SDDM with X11. Wayland works if GDM is used instead of SDDM.

I just tried with: sddm-kcm-5.20.3-1.fc33.x86_64 sddm-breeze-5.20.3-1.fc33.noarch sddm-0.19.0-1.fc33.x86_64

Same issue, black screen.

@ngompa, @jgrulich, @rdieter, @michaeltunnell - Found the issue... it's when using 5.20 in combination with sddm ...
sddm-0.18.1-8.fc33.x86_64, sddm-themes-0.18.1-8.fc33.noarch, sddm-kcm-5.20.3-1.fc33.x86_64, sddm-breeze-5.20.3-1.fc33.noarch

Would be interesting to know if if the people who reported wayland working were using GDM or SDDM.

If I change to gdm, wayland appears to work (so far) just fine. My understanding however is that sddm is the default displaymanager for kde, so this is a bit of an issue.

Leaving: assigned as a plasma issue, because don't who has the bug... feel free to reassign as appropriate - but obviously some coordination is needed.

@michaeltunnell so plasma-wayland is working fine for you?

I have the update on two machines and I am getting a black screen with wayland:

@ngompa - I'm on kernel 5.9.8; I tried backing out to 5.8 but it didn't make any difference.

@ngompa Thanks! It appears to be limited to AMD/Radeon so hopefully it will be easy to fix. As I mentioned above X appears to work fine, but wayland not so much. Previous release (5.19.5) had cosmetic/functional issues - but was workable. This isn't.

Just finished install on Lenovo Laptop with AMD Processor and Radeon. Same thing... Black screen when trying to use Wayland. Those who are mentioning "works great" can you please advise what kind of CPU and Graphics card you are using. That may help debug this issue. Otherwise, we aren't going to be able to make much progress on getting this to be the default, if it can't clear AMD/Radeon.

When trying to use Plasma Wayland, desktop is a completely black background. I have to reboot and luckily so far everything appears to be fine with X. Since I believe the whole idea of this is to get Plasma ready to be a default, this is a big fail.

Closed as duplicate. Original report here:


GMAIL stops working with this update, additionally FVD speed dial - and that was what I noticed immediately. Backout restores functionality. Sad that this got pushed so quickly to stable.

Yeah, it's a known problem and still happening to some people with 1.60 - I'm going to open a rhbz on it and reference the upstream bug. 1.7 has it's faults, but it's nice to see the app come back with some greatly needed enhancements. Here is an article that discusses it:


Works for me! Thanks for the quick response!
