Hi everyone,
I've stopped using this package and mostly xwayland software, so I've given up interest. I'm hoping they'll be support in upstream Wayland and compositors soon, or that we'll switch to a complete Wayland-compatible soon.
As a reminder, this package uses a set of experimental patches on xorg-xwayland, wlroots, and sway to enable HiDPI Xorg apps on Wayland. There might be a newer approach for this problem.
I'll orphan and stop rebasing the patches, feel free to pick them up from my fork and switch to yours.

In case someone's in a similar shoe and wondering how they can have recent wlroots build with xwayland apps having HiDPI support (exactly what this package was doing until it broke): I managed to have the same functionality with another set of packages:

The above work with the simple "sway-git" package and don't seem to need a specific package (as sway-hidpi-git used to be required for this package).

These also need an X11 property that can be set by adding to sway config:

@Rucikir Applying the patches fails during build for me as well:

patching file hw/xwayland/xwayland-input.c Hunk #1 succeeded at 504 (offset 46 lines). Hunk #2 succeeded at 728 (offset 93 lines). Hunk #3 FAILED at 716.

I also think this package is still relevant, as an uptstream HiDPI solution is not ready for the forseeable future.

@Rucikir Any updates on fixing the code conflicts here? I hope that this is not abandoned. I pretty much depend on this package. Thanks!

There is a patched version of sway that works with this. Not sure if kde has a similar patch. It also requires changing a setting.

Currently this doesn't build though due to an out-of-date patch.

Same question here.Do I have to set some environment variables with it to solve the blurry problem?

Not sure if this is actually working. Still get blurry XWayland apps on a 4K monitor with 200% scaling (KDE).

skerit commented on 2021-12-21 13:29 (UTC)

What does the xwlScaling patch even do? I thought it might solve blurry xwayland screens by downscaling instead of upscaling X applications, but that doesn't seem to be the case?

The patch needs to be refreshed due to conflicts. Here is an updated version:
