Ubuntu 18.04 on Wayland has no screen tearing issues. Noticed problems with xorg when maximising windows and performance was slow

Steps to share folder with guest


Not working with CentOS 7 guest as there is no support for the 9p filesystem

  1. Create folder on host.
  2. Change ownership of the folder to libvirt-qemu
  3. In virt-manager, add hardware and then add filesystem. Use Mode as “Squash”
  4. Reboot VM
  5. Mount share using:
mount -t 9p -o trans=virtio,version=9p2000.L /hostshare /home/guest_user/host_files
