I recently switched from X11 to wayland on Ubuntu 20.04.

After setting the environment variable export QT_QPA_PLATFORM=wayland
I am getting the following error:

This application failed to start because it could not find or load the Qt platform plugin "wayland"
in "".

Available platform plugins are: eglfs, minimal, minimalegl, offscreen, vnc, xcb.

Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.
Aborted (core dumped)

This happens with both spyder 4 and spyder 5. I installed spyder with anaconda.
I have qtwayland5 installed.

Other QT5 applications seem to work with wayland.

The Anaconda Qt package doesn't support Wayland. So you need to use the Xorg compatibility layer if possible (I don't know if it is, sorry).
