Whenever I logout, restart or turn on my computer, zorin doesn't seem to remember my settings at all. Here is my average routine after turning on the computer
Enter password to login
Screen goes all black and automatically logs out again
Enter password again
Logs in with an Ubuntu-like layout even though I have selected a windows-like layout
Open zorin appearance app to change it back
Logs out after black screen again
Open zorin appearance once more and select my preferred layout
Enable taskbar hide which was already enabled but it messes up the settings everytime
I should also mention it only happens in wayland and not x11. I was using wayland for a couple weeks without any problems but one fine day I kept getting logged out. It doesn't happen when I put my computer to sleep either. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
As far as I have heard, gnome+wayland+intel graphics is supposed to be relatively smooth
Thanks a lot for taking your time for trying to help me. The problem seems to have magically solved itself just after I posted my issue on the forum (the glitch seems to be scared of the devs checking it out) and no amount of restarting brings it back.
I would be totally fine using x11 on a daily basis if I didn't have a dual monitor setup. The screen tearing is quite visible. I am just a casual user so I never noticed any problems with wayland and everything was quite smooth. Since the issue is gone for now, I hope it won't come back. I will post any future updates regarding this here.
In newer version of Gnome and Wayland it is, but Zorin OS is from 2020 and 3 years has past and that is a lot of development time in Linux. You might concider using X11 until Zorin 17 is released later this year.
Then again I'm using also Fedora which have Wayland as default, but I have to switch to X11 as default to get all my stuff working even though there's such things as xwayland.
