mutter built with MR 1441 (dynamic triple buffering). This package will include any and all additional Fedora patches to mutter, with the dynamic triple buffering MR applied on top.

mutter and gnome-shell are additionally patched with the following:

Some other backports have been made to Fedora 37 to accommodate for the above backports.

For Fedora 38, the following patches are also included:

For Fedora 37, mutter is additionally patched with MR 1880 (wayland/surface: Avoid using buffers with unfinished client work, sub-surface fixes), which can help to resolve mutter issue #1162. This MR has been merged for GNOME 44 and therefore will be present by default in Fedora 38.

NOTE: MR 1441 as linked above tracks mutter main. This repo usually distributes a build of mutter using the same copy of the patch as Debian and Ubuntu apply for the respective version of mutter (sources).

Installation Instructions

On Fedora Workstation, you can enable this repo with the following commands:

sudo dnf copr enable calcastor/gnome-patched

sudo dnf --refresh upgrade

To return to Fedora upstream, you can disable the repo and run a distro-sync:

sudo dnf copr disable calcastor/gnome-patched

sudo dnf --refresh distro-sync

On Fedora Silverblue, the above instructions differ. Run these instead:

cd /etc/yum.repos.d/

sudo wget

OR, for Fedora Silverblue 38,

sudo wget

Then to update to the patch mutter and gnome-shell, run the following:

sudo rpm-ostree override replace --experimental --from mutter gnome-shell

To return to Fedora upstream on Silverblue, you would run the following:

sudo rm /etc/yum.repos.d/calcastor-gnome-patched-fedora-*.repo

sudo rpm-ostree override reset mutter gnome-shell

Thank you to daudix for posting the Silverblue-specific instructions.
