I’m not thrilled about this, to say the least. I’ve just built a Linux gaming machine that I will primarily use over Steam Link. And I haven’t been able to get Steam Link working on Wayland at all.
No matter what workaround I’ve tried, I’m only able to get a black screen over Steam Link when using Wayland. If the Gnome team actually goes through with this, hopefully it will be enough for Valve and other developers to fix the many issues that still exist on Wayland.
