GUI Not starting under wayland

Here is the output of insync start --no-daemon

(I am running SwayWM)

Hi @KT_Webster

Can you try running insync show and let me know if this launches the GUI?

Even less then insync start I dont even see it run in the status bar:

$ insync show

$ ps aux | grep -i insync

$ karl        3807  0.0  0.0 216116   904 pts/1    S+   09:21   0:00 grep --color=auto -i insync

Does not even want to start with insync show

tagging our engineer @Kurt_Ko for further assistance!

Ah, dont worry about it. Sway seems to be very buggy. Not using it now and Insync works fine!

¡Hello! I’m having a similar problem. The GUI works well with Xorg, but when I start session using Wayland, it doesn’t. I’m using Kwin 5.18.5. However, I do see the status bar icon.
Running insync show in a terminal doesn’t give me any output.

I need to launch it as insync --qt-qpa-platform=xcb
Launching with insync or insync --qt-qpa-platform=wayland leaves me with no GUI/tray icon.

I’m still getting no working wayland GUI, and can only get it working when forcing it to use X instead.

Running insync start --no-daemon produces:

`insync start --no-daemon

Upon then entering insync show in a separate window, the original process adds:
qt.qpa.wayland: No shell integration named "xdg-shell" found qt.qpa.wayland: No shell integration named "xdg-shell-v6" found qt.qpa.wayland: No shell integration named "wl-shell" found qt.qpa.wayland: No shell integration named "ivi-shell" found qt.qpa.wayland: Loading shell integration failed. qt.qpa.wayland: Attempted to load the following shells ("xdg-shell", "xdg-shell-v6", "wl-shell", "ivi-shell") Could not create a shell surface object. qt.qpa.wayland: Wayland does not support QWindow::requestActivate()

This is broken for me as well. This used to work fine under Sway a month or so back. I recently updated both Sway and Insync, and now I have the exact issues cited here.

I can confirm that launching Insync with insync start --qt-qpa-platform=xcb works for me. It would be good if this could play nicely with Wayland/Sway again though.

QT supports wayland natively and I have different applications perfectly running with qt-qpa-platform=wayland

I can launch Insync natively under wayland but it is all but consistent…the interface sometimes enters fullscreen mode without window decoration, other times it starts as a very tiny window still without decoration…
