HDR is like RGB, sometimes cool if done really well but usually just a useless selling point.

[-] rustyredox@lemmy.world 5 points 1 month ago

For a second there I thought you were advocating for fluorescent green or monochromatic CRT screens of old.

Joke's on you I can't afford an HDR display & also I'm colorblind.

[-] accideath@lemmy.world 11 points 1 month ago

You can still profit from the increase in brightness and contrast! Doesn’t make a good HDR screen any cheaper though…

HDR? Ah, you mean when videos keep flickering on Wayland!

I will switch when I need a new GPU.

[-] Communist@lemmy.ml 17 points 1 month ago

Now that explicit sync has been merged this will be a thing of the past

[-] vividspecter@lemm.ee 11 points 1 month ago

And it was never a thing on AMD GPUs.

[-] vrighter@discuss.tchncs.de 11 points 1 month ago

videos? everything flickers for me on wayland. X.org is literally the only thing keeping me from switching back to windows right now.

[-] AMDIsOurLord@lemmy.ml 6 points 1 month ago

Wayland has started to support Explicit Sync which can fix the behavior of Nvidia's dumpster fire of a driver

You want to win me over? For starters, provide a layer that supports all hooks and features in xdotool and wmctrl. As I understand it, that's nowhere near present, and maybe even deliberately impossible "for security reasons".

I know about ydotool and dotool. They're something but definitely not drop-in replacements.

Unfortunately, I suspect I'll end up being forced onto Wayland at some point because the easy-use distros will switch to it, and I'll just have to get used to moving and resizing my windows manually with the mouse. Over and over. Because that's secure.

[-] Waffelson@lemmy.world 6 points 1 month ago

I think the Wayland transition will not be without compromises

May I ask why you don't use tiling window managers if you don't like to move windows with the mouse?

[-] AMDIsOurLord@lemmy.ml 5 points 1 month ago

I think it's possible to make such a tool for Wayland, but in Wayland stuff like that are completely on the compositor

So, ask the compositor developers to expose the required shit and you can make such a tool

I think you were being sarcastic but it is more secure. Less convenient though.

I'm not sure if that's what you're looking for but KDE has nice window rules that can affect all sorts of settings. Placement, size, appearance etc. Lot of options. And you can match them per specific windows or the whole application etc. I use it for few things, mostly to place windows on certain screens and in certain sizes.

hahahaha tell that to nvidia users

[-] Zetta@mander.xyz 7 points 1 month ago

Smart Nvidia users are ex Nvidia users

Financially smart Nvidia users are Nvidia users

OK but can you please call NVidiachan? I know you two don't get along but maybe you can ask her for some support?

[-] Waffelson@lemmy.world 9 points 1 month ago

NVidiachan is busy selling GPUS for AI, but she is also working on adding explicit sync

How will HDR affect the black screen I get every time I've tried to launch KDE under Wayland?

[-] SomeBoyo@feddit.de 14 points 1 month ago

It will make your screen blacker.

But it all seriousness, your display manager might not support Wayland. Try something like ssdm.

[-] HouseWolf@lemm.ee 9 points 1 month ago

I'm using SDDM and it lets me select Wayland as an option just fine, Just my Nvidia card won't load my desktop then.

I'm going full AMD next time I upgrade but that's gonna be a while away...

[-] SomeBoyo@feddit.de 5 points 1 month ago

Nothing you can do then. Stay on x11 until nvidia get their shit together.

It should work with the latest Nvidia driver. It does for me.

You already had me at "144hz on one monitor and 60hz on the other so I can enjoy the nice monitor without having to buy a new secondary one."

It's not ready yet.

The protocol for apps/games to make use of it is not yet finalized.

Me, not much of a gamer and not a movie buff and having no issues with the way monitors have been displaying things for the past 25 years: No.

When I could no longer see the migraine-inducing flicker while being irradiated by a particle accelerator shooting a phosphor coated screen in front of my face, I was good to go.

It was exciting when we went from green/amber to color!

[-] ikidd@lemmy.world 8 points 1 month ago

Been watching this drama about HDR for a year now, and still can't be arsed to read up on what it is.

[-] Curdie@lemmy.world 5 points 1 month ago

HDR makes stuff look really awesome. It's super good for real.

[-] accideath@lemmy.world 5 points 1 month ago

HDR or High Dynamic Range is a way for images/videos/games to take advantage of the increased colour space, brightness and contrast of modern displays. That is, if your medium, your player device/software and your display are HDR capable.

HDR content is usually mastered with a peak brightness of 1000nits or more in mind, while Standard Dynamic Range (SDR) content is mastered for 80-100nit screens.

without any interruption to gaming compability I definitely don't want to switch sorry.

HDR is cool and I look forward to getting that full game compability and eventually making the switch but it's just not there yet

HDR is almost useless to me. I'll switch when wayland has proper remote desktop support (lmk if it does but I'm pretty sure it does not)

[-] sushibowl@feddit.nl 8 points 1 month ago

Seems like there's a bunch of solutions out there:

As of 2020, there are several projects that use these methods to provide GUI access to remote computers. The compositor Weston provides an RDP backend. GNOME has a remote desktop server that supports VNC. WayVNC is a VNC server that works with compositors, like Sway, based on the wlroots library. Waypipe works with all Wayland compositors and offers almost-transparent application forwarding, like ssh -X.

Do these not work for your use case?

Kde on Wayland doesn't even have sticky keys.
