WINE Wayland

Hello, I do not know much about WINE, nor this page, but I have found a really cool project that makes WINE run native in Wayland (without the need of XWayland): https://github.com/varmd/wine-wayland. I am wondering if someone can take care of it and add it in the page.

This project does not seem to be packaged in Arch. -- Blackteahamburger (talk) 09:49, 23 June 2020 (UTC)
I added a category for this to the Usage section. Blackteahamburger is right, there is no package in the Repos or AUR, but the upstream dev/maintainer provides PKGBUILDs directly for Arch. Thus it would be quite easy to include it in AUR.
I also added a new effort to support Wayland upstream.

Sound - Move part?

Should this part maybe be moved to Troubleshooting instead?

  If winecfg still fails to detect the audio driver (Selected driver: (none)), configure it via the registry. For example, in a case where the microphone was not working in a 32-bit Windows application on a 64-bit stock install of wine-1.9.7, this provided full access to the sound hardware (sound playback and mic): open regedit, look for the key HKEY_CURRENT_USER → Software → Wine → Drivers, and add a string called Audio and give it the value alsa. Also, it may help to recreate the prefix.
