GNOME 40.1: Firefox, Chromium, GIMP won't launch anymore on Wayland
I updated my Alpine edge install (GNOME 40.0 --> 40.1) and Firefox and GIMP won't launch anymore, other programs launch just fine.
Running the command
gimp in a terminal just hangs without any information.
Workaround for Firefox
By default Firefox uses X11 so XWayland is used to launch it on Wayland systems.
MOZ_ENABLE_WAYLAND=1 in the desktop file works around the problem as Firefox launches then with Wayland as window system.
However, clicking on links won't start Firefox anymore.
