Plasma-wayland on Manjaro
#1
In my quest to get redshift working, or an alternative, I installed and started keeping tabs on the performance of Wayland. It was unsurprisingly hard to use, being very choppy, at first. After the latest post 19.06 updates something borked my xorg plasma session and started boot looping. On a whim to get to the desktop I selected a Wayland session, and it not only got me in, but its running fairly well, with noticeable improvements. The performance even feels better than with xorg. Night color works well, with some slight choppiness while transitioning temperatures. I have a feeling not many people thought to try running Wayland on the Pinebook, so I figured Id let it be known, its actually worth it now.

Hi top.   I've been following the panfrost dev work and it's still not ready for Plasma wayland on my new N2+ board.   Works kinda ok on my rock64 with mali 450.     Maybe soon since the C4 has a similar gpu and its working.   Not sure how well.  In the meantime I use odroid Ubu 20 Gnome-wayland which uses the libmali drivers.   So it can do it. The free driver is just not there yet.
Curious if the rockpro can run it.

Yes, the RockPro64 should be able to run it. It works well on the PBP, each of my OS options for mine uses Gnome+Wayland by default.
