I took Plasma's Wayland session for a spin a few months back but it had too many small annoyances for me to daily drive so I switched back to X11. However, now I started noticing horrible screen tearing in Flatpak applications and lo and behold, as soon as I switched to Wayland they disappeared. It's really frustrating because most of not all of the little annoyances persist, I had to look up how to run Yakuake under X11 so it wouldn't just appear in the middle of my screen for example, but I'd rather deal with them than with screen tearing so I guess this is my life now.
I just wanted to get out my frustrations and also find out if anyone else has had problems. It seems to me Wayland is far from ready for prime time on Plasma.
I've tried installing libinput-gestures-qt, set gestures to plasma default, set the daemon to autostart and restarted the system and three finger swipes do absolutely nothing. Is there something I'm doing wrong?

> This year I’d like to start something I call the “15 minute bug” initiative–an effort to fix as many of the bugs as possible that are trivially encountered within a quarter hour of basic usage. These are the kinds of issues that form permanent negative opinions in people’s minds, and reinforce the perception that KDE software is buggy and unreliable.
KDE is an international technology team creating user-friendly free and open source software for desktop and portable computing. KDE’s software runs on GNU/Linux, BSD and other operating systems, including Windows.
