How to speedup (stop lag) in Fedora 25

With Fedora 25 (as you probably already know) X was replaced with Wayland as the default display server. Now while I applaud Fedora for taking that giant step forward. The fact remains that X11 just performs better.

With Wayland i’ve noticed various flickers where there shouldn’t be. As well as a general feeling of… lag or slowness.

Luckily for us it’s pretty easy to go back to X.

  1. Logout (not yet!! Read the rest of the tutorial first)
  2. Click on your profile
  3. Look for the settings icon and select Gnome on XOrg.

Voila! you should now see an immediate difference.
