Has anyone got g-sync working in a game with the latest Nvidia 418.43 driver with a freesync monitor?

I have a freesync monitor (Samsung CF791) that reportedly works with Nvidia driver now when checked "Allow G-SYNC on monitor not validated as G-SYNC Compatible". At least on Windows.

Monitor has freesync on. This is picked up by the driver, so the options are then available in nvidia-settings. I also turned the Visual Indicator on in settings.

But I cannot get the indicator to show in any game. Supposedly it should show Normal or G-SYNC, but it shows nothing.

Could this be a gnome problem?

But there is a another bug now. Sometimes starting a game with Gsync on causes a black screen. Or the screen is first vi

Looks like the patched packages in AUR are based on some Canonical work. Hopefully this will be upstreamed in next major

2018-11-04 07:25:22 -0600 marked best answer [Solved] Cannot start wayland from gdm

In previous versions of Fedora I've been using gnome-xorg for the desktop session. So in e.g. Fedora 27 I've selected to login from gdm with an xorg session. I've upgraded to Fedora 28, but can't remember what I did to still continue running xorg. After using Fedora 28 for a while I wanted to try wayland again. But now there is no option in gdm to select wayland (I know it is supposed to be default). And even though I set WaylandEnable=true in /etc/gdm/custom.conf, it doesn't start wayland. The only way to start wayland is to open another console and run "dbus-run-session -- gnome-shell --display-server --wayland". This works. I also have nvidia drivers from negativo17 installed and use nvidia-drm.modeset=1 in kernel command line.

Somehow gdm isn't even trying to launch a wayland session when logging in. Is there a way to force it somehow?

I also upgraded the system to Fedora 29, but the problem is still the same.

There are no errors in the journal and only gdm-x-session entries about starting xorg. Nothing about wayland.
