Although this is still incompatible with xorg-server, it looks like it should now be compatible with xorg-server-git, though I haven’t yet tried building that and this.

My bad, if you don't install xorg-server or xorg-server-git, and that I add the new libxcvt dependency to XWayland, it will work just fine.

I just ran into the same issue. Unfortunately I don't understand from the link you provided how to fix it.

@albertomim_03 @ChrisMorgan the problem comes from the package xorg-server-git, and is described here. It would be nice if someone could send a patch there.

Same as @ChrisMorgan

I just went to update this (I have installed 21.1.2.r211.gd83c84bd9-1) and I can’t build it:

Run-time dependency libxcvt found: NO (tried pkgconfig and cmake)

But I can’t install aur/libxcvt or aur/libxcvt-git because they conflict with xorg-server (which I also have installed because XWayland is insufficient in some cases) over the files /usr/bin/cvt and /usr/share/man/man1/cvt.1.gz.

Added xorgproto-git to the dependencies. Made the version more accurate, thanks for reporting.

Requires xorgproto-git to build of late, but does work

Revision always shows 0 though, which I'm not certain is accurate

@modnoob This adds an Xorg extension that needs to be supported by the compositor. The only implementation is in wlroots-hidpi-git, so only wlroot-based compositors can use it. AFAIK the only compositor using this patches on wlroots is sway-hidpi-git. No chance that Plasma (it's KDE, right?) can use these patches.

@SomeoneS it's a variant on the MIT license, I think.

Is this package to scale Xwayland clients correctly? I tested it on PLasma Wayland and with a 125% scaling factor and Xwayland Clients are blurry like they were before. I tested multiple Electron Apps.
