Not compatible with Wayland

Sorry for posting in this old thread, but the problem still exists.

qt.qpa.plugin: Could not find the Qt platform plugin "wayland" in ""
This application failed to start because no Qt platform plugin could be initialized. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.

Available platform plugins are: xcb.

This is what I get when I start Enpass on my Arch system running Sway Window Manager (Wayland).

I have to manually start Enpass with

QT_QPA_PLATFORM=xcb enpass

to get it running.

Other QT applications like Telegram or Calibre are working fine.

Following up - as lairdchris noted, it's possible to run Enpass under xwayland via:

QT_QPA_PLATFORM=xcb enpass

This works fine for the most part. However, automatic copying of TOTP after filling a login in a wayland browser doesn't work, but automatic copying of TOTP after filling a login in a xwayland browser does work.

@Garima Singh

Wayland is getting adopted more and more. KDE plasma 5.22 has been released recently and has wayland in a usable state now. I know enpass works with xwayland. However, the user experience of a xwayland desktop in general is not on par with either X11 or full wayland. The fractional scaling of xwayland causes for a blurry desktop. With the release of Plasma 5.22 and the significant improvement to wayland more people are able to make the switch from X11 to wayland. For me at least, the only app holding back a switch to wayland is Enpass. Hence my question if wayland support is on the roadmap of Enpass and if so if there is an estimate when this would become available.

Good morning,
I would like to know the current status of the adaptation of Enpass to Wayland.
My equipment is:

Operating System: Debian GNU/Linux 12
KDE Plasma Version: 5.27.2
KDE Frameworks Version: 5.103.0
Qt Version: 5.15.8
Kernel Version: 6.1.0-8-amd64 (64-bit)
Graphics Platform: Wayland
Processors: 12 × Intel® Core™ i7-10710U CPU @ 1.10GHz
Memory: 31.2 GiB of RAM
Graphics Processor: Mesa Intel® UHD Graphics
Manufacturer: Micro-Star International Co., Ltd.
Product Name: Prestige 15 A10SC
System Version: REV:1.0

With a 15.6-inch monitor and 4k resolution. The font with which Enpass appears is excessively small.20230509-105321_Screenshot.thumb.png.748ebaa7fba98837e45fa337a77713f4.png

@Abhishek Dewan I think the time has come to make Enpass finally Wayland compatible. Many desktops/distros switches to wayland as default.

For me Enpass is the only program that doesn't work with wayland.
It would be nice if you give "native Wayland support" a higher priority.

This is very odd, this thread starts in 2017, seven years ago and users still get standard answers "Thank you for your patience......"

Its time to start searching fo another software, i think.
