I thought we wanted to avoid adding users to specific groups like this?
We can do this, of course; I just want to be sure that it's the right
way forward, or if it's just a temporary workaround (for 12.1).

Ping? Should we go this way, and just for 12.1 or forever? There's a
submit request from Dominique that does this, and we just need

It would be a workaround forever I guess. AFAIK /dev/nvidia* is not
created via udev, therefore not known to udev, therefore no ACLs so
no access for the desktop. That's the only reason why we still add
users to the video group. So you need to do that for gdm too then.

Ok, thanks.

Shouldn't there be a fallback in case GL doesn't work though?

There is a fallback mode, but the "GL doesn't work" detection code
