Gnome night light not working under Wayland

Now that nvidia driver works well with wayland, one of the few remaining minor annoyances is the fact that Gnome’s night light does not work in wayland session. According to the gnome bug [1], this is due to missing GAMMA_LUT property. Are there plans to fix this? Thank you in advance.

Whooo, we are wayland now! Anyway, issue reproducible with Fedora 35, 5.14.14-300.fc35.x86_64, nvidia driver installed from rpmfusion 3:470.74-1.fc35.

I’d love to see GAMMA_LUT (and thus Night Light) too!

Wayland on Nvidia is finally in a good state, the Wayland session on Ubuntu 21.10 is really smooth. The lack of Night Light is a dealbreaker for me though :(

Would also absolutely love to see this fixed! We’re so close to perfect Wayland on GNOME! Using Fedora 35, kernel 5.14.14, with the new 495.44 drivers - issue still present.

This is basically the only thing holding me back from using Wayland. I would really appreciate this being fixed.

Please fix this! I would LOVE to stop using an AMD GPU as a display output while forcing my NVIDIA card to output through a VM, it would free up so much overhead since I would just be able to run basically everything off the NVIDIA card under Linux. I absolutely NEED Night Light.

Please improve NVIDIA driver under Wayland so that we can change screen temperature. Thank You so much!

Very important feature.

+1 for this, tested with the latest (510.47.03) driver, and it still doesn’t work :(

There’s still a little bit of time to get this shipped before Ubuntu 22.04 LTS :-)

This is getting embarrassing, this feature has been requested for years. Many of your loyal consumers can’t enjoy all the effort you’ve put into Wayland because of this minor but essential feature.

Words are not enough to describe what a curse Nvidia is for Linux. Guys where are the GBM fixes? Where is the color, gamma support for Wayland? You are really incompetent.

Are the color and gama support not gnome and xwayland issues?

This issue has nothing to do with GNOME or any of your links, the lack of GAMMA_LUT support from nvidia affects all wayland related software on Linux, none of them can implement night light/night mode for nvidia users until nvidia finally makes the effort to support this property. KDE Plasma and other DEs are waiting for this as well.

Wayland is now also the default in the upcoming Fedora release, would be really really cool to get GAMMA_LUT support

The upcoming Ubuntu LTS 22.04 will use Wayland by default. For me, not being able to use the NightLight feature in Ubuntu is a deal-breaker: I can only tolerate so much hand-switching the colour temperature on the monitor twice a day.
Please fix the bug ASAP.

Is this STILL not fixed? I’ve been using an RX 480 8GB under Linux (that’s right, an AMD card) while only using my NVIDIA 2080Ti under a VM for gaming and workstation usage, solely because the AMD drivers have Night Light support while the proprietary NVIDIA driver does not. I need Wayland because my setup uses a mixed DPI monitor solution with fractional scaling (1080p 144Hz + 4k60Hz), and I need Night Light because my sleep schedule is screwed up to hell and it would be nice not having blue light all the time to mess with that.

Suffice to say, if this issue still isn’t fixed by the time the next generation of cards roll around, I’m probably not going to be using NVIDIA. I literally NEED this and I am willing to switch sides over this.

I have the exact same problem! It’s the single issue that is keeping me from staying on Linux, maybe that is the point…
