Description Victor Zhestkov 2018-02-09 16:39:06 UTC
tilda is going to segmentation fault in running under wayland session
Comment 1 Vasilis Liaskovitis 2018-02-16 15:29:00 UTC

These tickets:

suggest using: 

GDK_BACKEND=x11 tilda

That worked for me. Can you try it?

According to the above tickets, tilda hotkeys may not work though.
Comment 2 Victor Zhestkov 2018-02-16 19:37:06 UTC
Yes, this method works.
But anyway need to be fixed :-)
Comment 3 Marcus Meissner 2018-02-20 16:05:48 UTC
Malcolm touched it last. 

I am the project bugowner, not the package bugowner ;)

Well there seem to be a couple of issues, one the developer is not up to speed on wayland and indicates in Issue #314 that it's (tilda) Xorg only.

Second is the hotkeys. At preset I run Xorg on Gnome in TW, but did test the latest release (1.4.1) in SLED 15 Beta7 since it's running wayland, no hotkey working is a pain.

Depending on your desktop environment, not sure if there is a real fix, yes it starts if I patched the desktop file (or created a wrapper), but until upstream fixes reluctant to do anything else....

Waiting for upstream so will close.
