Wayland not available on login in Fedora 31

I upgraded to Fedora 31 and after experiencing some issues with copy and paste and virtualbox I realised that the desktop is running X11. I would like to test if these issues go away in Wayland. I do not have Wayland session available on login.
“xorg-x11-server-Xwayland” is installed. How do I force gnome to use it or add the option to the login menu?

  Hi.  Is package wayland installed too?
  What DE it is?  What Desktops Manager it is?

1- check WaylandEnable in /etc/gdm/custom.conf .

You may have tried to install nvidia driver , nvidia package from rpmfusion contains scriptlets to edit WaylandEnable to false in /etc/gdm/custom.conf .

By the way if nvidia driver installed you must keep WaylandEnable=False otherwise you will have problems booting the system .specifically gdm will not work .

2-search and reinstall/install wayland session.

sudo dnf repoquery gnome-session*

Thanks for that. Yes I have nvidia driver installed.
/etc/gdm/custom.conf also contains the line:
Are you saying that nvidia driver is not compatible with Wayland?
