I need to switch back to X11 in order for chrome screen sharing for MS Teams to start working again. Pretty annoying that M$ doesn’t support Firefox, which handles Pipewire Screen Sharing really well…
So recently maybe after upgrading to F35, I am unable to see the gear icon in gdm. Even if I manually disable wayland gdm just won’t be able to start and crash. Not even lightdm or startx work…
I suppose that’s nvidia driver related, since when I boot up an old kernel that has an older version of the nvidia in it’s initramfs, it will show me the gear icon and boot into Gnome on Xorg. The problem then is that the animations just get disabled like on llvmpipe and the dmesg output also suggests that the nvidia driver straight up refused to fully initialize. I unfortunately did not save the output, but will try and add it tomorrow.
One thing I suspected was that the xorg nvidia driver was missing but nope it’s installed. I have no idea what to try next. Hopefully one of you can help me, thank you!
