@bryanquigley the new topic seemed to be locked, I could not answer there. thanks for the tip anyhow, I was thinking of trying 19.10 anyhow.
Note, though, that contrary to what you claim, 430 (and even 435! (though 435 has dependency issues)) are available under ubuntu 19.04 with the nvidia PPA. (ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa) and I’m using the 430 on ubuntu 19.04 this very moment.
perhaps you mean to say that 430 is available on 19.10 without a PPA, if yes, I’m curious to know whether anything is different about it or if the PPA simply repackages it?
EDIT: OK so I guess I can’t hope for much better on 19.10 then? I mean it’s not like it’s the lower version gnome-shell which is preventing me from having any desktop at all under wayland is it?
