Cross linking Fedora feature request titled "devilspie2 appears not to work on Xwayland":

Devilspie2 works fine on Xorg on Debian Sid and Fedora Rawhide. Both Sid and Rawhide have version 0.39 of Devislpie2. However using Xwayland (which is an option for Debian Sid, but the default for Fedora Rawhide) Devilspie2 fails to start with the message:

An X11 display is required for devilspie2.
