Step 2

You’ll see that the waylandenable is false. It will be like WaylandEnable=false. All you have to do is, change it to WaylandEnable=true and save the custom.conf file using ctrl + s. Now you’re good to go.


Step 3

Now restart or reboot your system and choose Gnome XOrg during the login.

After that try to execute the command again and it will work.
