Issues with Bluetooth mouse and Wayland

Postby cityhunt » 2019-10-25 19:16

Guys, I had my Logi M590 BT mouse behaving oddly under Debian Buster 4.19.0-6-amd64: issues varied from random disconnects to slow pointer to lagging cursor.
I tried all solutions and workarounds proposed in the forums, nothing worked.

Also, logs (even with bluetoothd -d), weren't that useful.

I installed blueman (sudo apt install blueman) - which happens to be more verbose in these cases - and finally stumbled upon these lines in /var/log/syslog.

Code: Select all
blueman-manager[4068]: Window 0x466f660 is a temporary window without parent, application will not be able to position it on screen


Solution was in - guess what? - Wayland! :)

Edit this file

Code: Select all
$ sudo vi /etc/gdm3/daemon.conf


and uncomment this line

Code: Select all
#WaylandEnable=false


to basically avoid the Gnome Display Manager to start in Wayland, falling back on the good old X.
After a restart, this solved all of my problems.
Hoping to help someone else not scratching his hairs :)
