I use intel/wayland, but tried with X/nvidia (have an optimus laptop, so have access to both) with no extensions just for the sake of testing, but no dice with either. It seems the culprit is the laptop's touchscreen: according to journalctl gsd-wacom crashes, citing the touchscreen has no key 'Display' on gnome-shell-dev, but not with the normal package. Everything else seems to work okay, though (If I open the overview I can open applications, etc, but the error screen reappears when I close the overview again). I'll see if I can make anymore progress sometime this weekend, but it seems I'll have to wait until other packages get relevant updates (whatever provides gsd-wacom, namely)

X on Nvidia drivers, only dash-to-dock extension enabled.

Are you on Wayland or X? Any extensions enabled? I'll see if I can track down GDM's logs, they might reveal something..;

Definitely not the expected behaviour and it shouldn't need extra configuration, it's working fine on my PC. I don't know why it's giving you that error..

When installing this and mutter-dev (+ gsettings-desktop-schemas-dev) and rebooting, I get an error on login (oh no, something when wrong, with a button to go back to GDM). Is this expected behaviour or have I missed some extra config that's needed? (Or any pointers as to logs to check what's going wrong?)

gnome-desktop needs dev package too. Otherwise gnome control center would report GNOME 3.30

Are you sure it would make a big difference? Currently Arch ships with GJS v1.54.3, and reading the release notes of the 1.55.x tags I couldn't find any astonishing difference in performance.

Can you make gjs-dev package too, and make this one depend on it? It has a lot of performance improvements for Gnome.

I just got a build working, submitted it as gsettings-desktop-schemas-dev. Cannot guarantee that it works though, I'm currently setting up a vm to test.

I'm not able to update this package to 3.31.4 for now because gnome-shell-dev depends on mutter-dev that in turn depends on gsettings-desktop-schemas-dev. This package does not exist yet and I would be glad to upload it but they changed the build tool to Meson and I currently cannot get a working build. Any help would be appreciated in getting a PKGBUILD for gsettings-desktop-schemas-dev, after that I will update gnome-shell-dev and mutter-dev to 3.31.4.
