XWayland applications with black flickering

Good morning, I've been having this error for quite some time and I can't solve it.

Currently on my computer I have put sway-nvidia + nvidia 2070. The applications that work under wayland go perfectly, but unfortunately I need applications that only have support for X11, the problem is that if I open any of them I have black flashing in some areas and soon closes.

I do not know how to address this issue (I do not know if it is a configuration problem, or incompatibility or where to look for a solution).

If you need any more information, please ask without problems. Thanks in advance!

----------------------
I provide more information in case it can help.

I have 2 monitors.
The main one -> 1080p 144hz
The secondary -> 1080p 60hz

In the applications that work with wayland (Chrome, vkube, etc) there are no problems.
On applications running xorg/x11 yes (xeyes, gparted, vmware-workstation, etc)

I use kernel lts and nvidia drivers lts.
And the rest of things I use the stable version (sway, xorg, etc).

In the following shared folder I post 2 videos so you can see exactly what happens to me.

The xorg configuration is the one that nvidia generated by default, I have not changed it. Should I do it to solve the problem?

I've been testing and configuring monitors with their resolution with xorg in the xorg.conf file and it doesn't solve anything.

I have also tried with gimp and the same thing happens to me.

Re: XWayland applications with black flickering

I think the vanilla sway package from [community] should now support NVIDIA with the --unsupported-gpu (née --my-next-gpu-wont-be-nvidia) option. Have you tried that?

Don't expect much though. I think NVIDIA's much-vaunted GBM support might be an elaborate practical joke. I hate NVIDIA.

Hi @Head_on_a_Stick

Yes, try also starting sway with its vanilla package and the --unsupported-gru parameter. And the same thing happens, in fact there is a little white flicker also that is solved with that sway-nvidia package (I understand that by the extra configuration that adds before starting sway).

Re: XWayland applications with black flickering

With the nouveau driver and sway vanilla without option --unsupported-gpu it works fine, so I understand that the problem is in the nvidia driver and the communication with XWayland applications.

Anyway I would like to be able to use the proprietary nvidia drivers as I consider them a better option.
