    Hi,

    I am using Manjaro Gnome Wayland. In the “/usr/NX/etc/node.cfg” file, there are three options for “WaylandModes”, “drm”, “compositor” and “egl”. I understand that the “compositor” option is using the pipewire screenshare functionality. In Gnome, when Pipewire screenshare is used, there is an icon appearing in the system bar.

    I tested a bit but “compositor” option does not seem to work on my intel laptop as well as my PC with Nvidia GPU. I can see the Pipewire screenshare icon appearing in the system bar, but I only see grey screen when connected remotely. On my intel laptop, things work if I use “drm” option. For the PC with Nvidia GPU, “drm” does not work. In terms of “egl”, it makes some changes to my system setting, which essentially disable Wayland after I reboot the computer.

    Pipewire is working really well at least for Gnome Wayland, I am curious why it does not seem to work with NoMachine.

    Thanks very much.

    Regards,

    Hi Whitecatkeke,

    please gather logs while reproducing the problem with pipewire (that is, as you say, the ‘compositor’ option) and send them to forum[at]nomachine[dot]com. You can find instructions in https://kb.nomachine.com/DT11R00182.

    As for ‘egl’, is the Wayland Gnome option reported as available in the login window? What are the exact Manjaro and Gnome versions?

    Thank you for the reply. I will send the log via email.

    As for EGL, the Wayland Gnome option simply disappears after I run “sudo /etc/NX/nxserver –egl-capture yes”.  I have to run “sudo /etc/NX/nxserver –egl-capture no” to bring back the option.

    I am on latest Manjaro with Gnome 42.

    We never received the log file, so what I suggest at this stage is you update to the latest version and if you are still seeing the same issue, submit the logs.
