easy workaround if you think Wayland is the problem: Start your Gnome as an Xorg session, as shown here. image description

If that works well for you, you can tell your Fedora to start an Xorg session by default. How to do that is described in this Q/A

thanks for your comment. but Xorg too slow than Wayland. is it possible to fix this DND problem of Wayland ? maybe in a few months, fedora developers will fix it so I have to wait until that time. I hope this great problem will be fixed soon.

Xorg is too slow compared to Wayland?! This is weird... well, this might be relating to 'modesetting' driver...

so how can I fix 'modesetting' driver

You can't 'fix' it, but you can use intel driver instead: 1. Install xorg-x11-drv-intel: dnf install xorg-x11-drv-intel 2. Enable the driver by default:

cat > /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/intel.conf <<EOL
Section "Device"
        Identifier "Folan"
        Driver "intel"

Log out (or reboot) & relogin.
