This can be be added to /etc/profile or to /etc/environment

Additionally, if you've previously installed this on Fedora 37, be sure to re-run the below installation commands due to an additional package being added for 38.

Installation (Workstation)

Firstly add the Copr repository to your system:

sudo dnf copr enable kylegospo/gnome-vrr

After adding the repository, update your mutter, gnome-control-center, and xorg-x11-server-Xwayland packages:

sudo dnf update --refresh


If you wish to avoid upstream changes to mutter overwriting this package until this repository is updated, you can optionally force this repository to have a higher priority by doing:

sudo dnf config-manager --save --setopt="copr:copr.fedorainfracloud.org:kylegospo:gnome-vrr.priority=1"


If you wish to go back to stock, first disable the Copr repo:

sudo dnf copr disable kylegospo/gnome-vrr

Then roll back the packages that were updated with:

sudo dnf distro-sync --refresh

Installation (Silverblue)

To use this repo on Silverblue add the repo by executing:

sudo wget https://copr.fedorainfracloud.org/coprs/kylegospo/gnome-vrr/repo/fedora-$(rpm -E %fedora)/kylegospo-gnome-vrr-fedora-$(rpm -E %fedora).repo -O /etc/yum.repos.d/_copr_kylegospo-gnome-vrr.repo

And install the packages as overrides by executing:

rpm-ostree override replace --experimental --from repo=copr:copr.fedorainfracloud.org:kylegospo:gnome-vrr mutter gnome-control-center gnome-control-center-filesystem xorg-x11-server-Xwayland


If you wish to go back to stock, first remove the Copr repo:

sudo rm /etc/yum.repos.d/_copr_kylegospo-gnome-vrr.repo
