  • Not a duplicate, since the solution there is to use the cog icon to switch between them, which is obviously impossible in my situation. – Hassan Oct 25 '17 at 0:21

  • @pomsky Yeah this seems to be the problem. I thought that the new Nvidia drivers supported Wayland's EGL though. – Hassan Oct 25 '17 at 0:25
  • nvidia does not support wayland yet, they are working on it. – Panther Oct 25 '17 at 0:28
