Re: [kde] The current state of EGL in KDE/Plasma




Hi Kevin,

Thx for your insightful reply!

For laymen, like me, this is an unpenetrable labyrinth ;) although I try to catch-up as you can see.
 
Then my suggestion would be to use that for the time being :)

True, but my concerns were about being taken over by progress and KDE developers not being aware their efforts cause harm in "the field" currently.

Besides, there is a warning when enabling EGL in Compistor System Settings, but it only warns about disabling compositor if EGL is not available. I think a warning about maturity and stability would be appropriate?
 
I think it is in Intel's best interest to provide a well working EGL way
before GLX is being phased out.

You make it sound like it is the (lack of) maturity of Intel's driver that's responsible for my experienced plasma's instabilities?
Is there no chance of it being buggy EGL implementation in plasma?


Best regards,
Martin
