Hi,

I have Fedora 26, Nvidia Geforce 1070 mobile, I have Gnome 3.24 and Cinnamon

When i log in and select either Gnome or Cinnamon both report:

echo $XDG_SESSION_TYPE
x11


How do I get them to run on Wayland?

Thanks,
Josh

Read the following from https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/How_to_debug_Wayland_problems


Are you running a Wayland session?

In GNOME, there's a gear button at the login screen which can be used to either log into a Wayland session (simply called GNOME, it's the default option), or a legacy X11 session (called GNOME on Xorg). If you have a password-less user account, you won't see the gear icon, it is displayed only when the password prompt appears. Use the gear button to determine type of session you're logging into. If you want to start your session in a different way, read the advanced techniques for trying Wayland

Have you tried playing with this gnome login gearbox mentioned in the wayland wiki?

If you have, maybe this wiki will help you.

Which driver are you using? It appears nouveau driver does not properly handle Geforce 1070 mobile yet so you will need negativo's repository (https://negativo17.org/nvidia-driver-improvements-for-fedora-25/)
