Powermizer, wayland and nvidia graphics card

Hi. Is it possible to enable PowerMizer in high-performance mode on Nvidia with Wayland? It’s doable on X11, but on Wayland with Nvidia drivers, that option isn’t available. I’m new to Linux.

Yes: using nvidia-settings -a "[gpu:0]/GpuPowerMizerMode=2" if it says (Operation not supported). use sudo.

You will need to have a X11 session running first. If you use SDDM or LightDM, then you have a X11 session running already and the commands should work.
