When I installed Code Typhon on the KDE spin of Fedora 39 where the default compositor is Wayland, it is very erratic, hangs, stutters and is generally unusable.  Changing to the X11 compositor solved the problems.  As of Fedora 40, it is possible that the X11 option will be removed from Fedora, so the problems with Wayland may be an issue for Fedora installs in 6 months.  I used the QT6 install option.  Not sure if this is a problem for the GTK2 or QT5 installs.

Sir
Fedora 39 is in beta stage.
We must wait for final release.

KDE with QT6 don't exist yet, so ALL QT6 libraries are untested in real OS world.
Please don't forget QT6 it's a commercial library.

Now Wayland is the "Fairy tale", of a small Linux programmers group.

Anyway, we have and our plans...
In the last CT ver 8.30 LAB release, we add Zeta Platform,
In next LAB release, I hope to add and Zeta Window Manager for Unix.

Our new Linux Desktop ?

Actually QT is open source and is dual licensed.  The version used by KDE is licensed under various GPL licenses

From Wikipedia:  Qt... is free and open-source cross-platform software for creating graphical user interfaces as well as cross-platform applications that run on various software and hardware platforms ...Qt is available under both commercial licenses and open-source GPL 2.0, GPL 3.0, and LGPL 3.0 licenses.

I will reinstall using qt 5 and see if it makes a difference.

After reinstalling using qt 5, Typhon64 works much better under Wayland.  The only glitch was that moving docked elements like the object inspector was erratic.  Other than that, no problems (Note: The only reason I originally used qt 6 was that it was not marked "experimental".)

As far as Wayland goes, x11 is currently not maintained, so Wayland will eventually be the default compositor for the major distributions used in business.  Both Ubuntu and Red Hat are moving to discontinue x11 as part of their distributions, the only question is the timing. Of course, Fedora, being the Red Hat sponsored "leading edge" distribution, will move much faster than either the official Red Hat or Ubuntu versions.

We test without problems,
LAB CT ver 8.30 on the latest Raspberry Pi OS,
raspios_full_armhf-2023-10-10
32 and 64 Bits on Raspberry Pi 4.
This OS use only Wayland.

The Linux desktop has Problem,
but CodeTyphon Studio gives to end user a lot of options...
