Install this to get a toggle in your gnome settings:

gsettings experimental variable should be set by default, but in case of any issues:

gsettings set org.gnome.mutter experimental-features "['variable-refresh-rate']"

For some reason, your patch is incompatible with Intel graphics, specifically my intel ARC GPU. I have tested GEs implementation in Nobara and VRR works for me. I noticed in the issues log back when they were working out the Mutter 44 update that he had to remove the i915 blacklist. Was this done with your patch as well?

EDIT: I have looked into the vrr.patch and I do see that you left the i915 disabled. Since this is for Arch, there should not be any kernel incompatibilities since users should be using the latest kernels. I would suggest removing this in future iterations.

@Marcello_Coco Minor version doesn't matter. It works, as I'm using it daily.

How do i activate vrr when gnome-control-center-vrr is stuck at 44.3-1?

Updated to 44.4

mutter-vrr-docs package removed as we don't really need it. If anyone needs docs, they can just refer to the official mutter-docs package.

Please kindly remove all depends from the mutter-vrr-docs subpackage, as they are unneeded. Thank you in advance.

There is already a rebased mutter 45 branch, seems like upgrading to gnome 45 should not take too long/or being to complex when released.

mutter 44.2 was working but when I update to 44.3 the option to enable VRR in gnome settings is no longer present. downgrading back to fraz0815 44.2 reenables the option.

Updated to 44.3

gsettings experimental variable is now set by default.

@Whom Yep, confirmed bug [], which affected me too.

@Lawstorant Now, without 'AppIndicator and KStatusNotifierItem' it's back to perfekt again :-) This wasn't that obvious for me, because some native and proton games worked on steam with Appindicator and VRR, some didn't. Vrrtest worked also, mediaplayers worked but some games did not. Glad someone found out. Thanks for your detailed explanation about freesync in 6.5. I am still learning a lot since i bought a 7900 XT at launch and hat to compile llvm (needed 15+, repo was 14 at that time) and mesa-git.

Happy Gaming and thanks!

I've no idea what the actual problem was as my GNOME setup is pretty close to stock, but resetting my gnome settings with dconf reset -f /org/gnome/ now has it working. Of course, only do this if you're ready to get things just how you like them again.

Update: It appears to be the AppIndicator/KStatusNotifierItem extension. It requires a restart after disabling it, something about it breaks VRR even after being disabled.
