I have Fedora Linux 37 (Workstation Edition) x86_64 Kernel: 6.2.8-200.fc37.x86_64 Shell: bash 5.2.15 GNOME 43.3 Firefox under Wayland.
I have installed from Flathub “Barrier com.github.debauchee.barrier 2.4.0 stable flathub system”.
This makes Barrier up and running:
flatpak run com.github.debauchee.barrier

Barrier on Fedora is acting as server. An iMac as client.
started server (IPv4/IPv6), waiting for clients
NOTE: accepted client connection
NOTE: client “imac12” has connected
On iMac barrier.log: connected to server Fedora
The cursor is not travelling from screen Fedora to screen iMac.
Barrier is not yet running under full Wayland.
In earlier installations with GNOME 42/43 with Firefox not in Wayland, but Wayland active, the cursor travelled to other computers when a FF browser window was open in full mode, but not for the rest of Gnome desktop. It needed a browser window in full mode to make the cursor travelling to other screens.
How to get this back in Fedora 37 GNOME 43 with full Wayland? Is it possible to just run one window from FF in non-Wayland mode? Or to run a separate instance of FF in a X11 fallback mode side-by-side with Wayland-FF?
Or does someone know a keyboard and mouse sharing application alike Barrier running under Wayland? Very handy!
