The solution seems to be simple. This page ( ) says

To run an SDL2 application on Wayland, set SDL_VIDEODRIVER=wayland. SDL_VIDEODRIVER="wayland,x11" allows SDL2 to use the x11 video driver instead if Wayland is not available.

Since I am only using Wayland, I added SDL_VIDEODRIVER=wayland and it worked.

@god Thanks for you feedback.

  1. The first problem I've fixed,not add sdl_net,it was sdl2_net.
  2. I've read the docs,but I can't fix it now.

Two problems.

  1. "dosbox-staging: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory". I had to manually install the sdl_net 1.2.8-5 package.

  2. When I installed the Flatpak version of it, it ran as native Wayland. But when I ran this, it ran as XWayland. The version numbers seem to be the same. Why doesn't it run as native Wayland? In the output, I see "SDL: version 2.0.8 initialized (x11 video and pulseaudio audio)".
