@DrumYum this patch doesn't have to do with wayland, unfortuntely.

Works as intended in X11 session, but is there any way to make this patch work in Wayland session on KDE Plasma?

God! So many years have passed, and things are still there! When will this patch finally be included in the main xorg-server? (((

@glolsh "click on "view changes" under "Package actions" - on this very page with aur package info.

@kyak oh come on, man. No reason to be so negative.

Manjaro users should suffer and only blame themselves, not "the patch" :)

@vox click - ...Where?

This patch forced me to uninstall xf86-video-ati.

Luckily I had cached version of patched xorg. Why they forced removal of xf86-video-ati?

@kyak Thank you very much! For other Manjaro noobs like myself: click on "view changes" under "Package actions" and pick the same version as your xorg-server. Download and extract somewhere, open terminal in that folder and type "makepkg -is" - it should build and install the patch. Then you would have to ignore updating this package in pamac and then manually build a newer version when xorg-server on Manjaro will be updated (not sure how to comfortably track that yet though)

@vox this package is tracking xorg-server package from Arch Linux. It will not work with outdated packages from Manjaro and you will face dependency issues like you do.

Either use older an older version of this package that works with your particular Manjaro packages versions or keep it simple and install Arch.

Hi! I'm a noob from manjaro and I may not understand something here, but the latest patch borked my system. After some digging and installing/reinstalling stuff It became obvious that the patch deletes video drivers that I had installed - xf86-video-amdgpu for example. If I try to install the drivers again, it queues sddm and xorg-server-bug865 for removal. So basically I can't use this patch at all now :(
