What platform / DE is this?

What platform / DE is this?

This is Linux with Wayland backend. Wayland is not used by default yet and most distros use X11 so it does not hit majority of Linux users.

Yup, I'm using Linux / Wayland too (hence why I'm following some of these issues).

I've never heard of "sharing system resources" or "system sharing dialog", hence my question. I mean to ask: does this apply to KDE, Gnome, or what environment?

It apply to any environment (right now gnome/kde/sway) when Wayland is used and X11 clients run in XWayland. In such case screen sharing is not available due to Wayland app sandbox and xdg portals / pipewire needs to be used.

Looks like I'm failing to get my question across :(

This ticket mentions a "system sharing dialog". What dialog is this? Is it part of a DE? What provides it? I don't see any such thing on sway.

It's provided by https://github.com/flatpak/xdg-desktop-portal, which has DE specific backends, https://github.com/emersion/xdg-desktop-portal-wlr for wlroots. For Gnome, https://github.com/flatpak/xdg-desktop-portal-gtk has been shipped for years now by most distros.

Thanks a bunch! I appreciate both you guy's patience!

Don't have time to work on it right now.
