I just installed the latest Fedora 25, using Wayland.
I have the latest version of MD2017 1584.
I have long since modified the Moneydance script like this
INSTALL4J_JAVA_HOME_OVERRIDE=/etc/alternatives/jre

But on the Fedora 25, MD will not lauch. I reverted to using the supplied jre (put the #comment back in) and that works.

There are some minor graphics issues with the "password" pop-up window when launching (I have encrypted file option turned on).
It works, but hard to read.

    Adding to this, doing my own research looks like Java SE may "never" support using Wayland directly, only using Xwayland. Which is fine, but I am curious to see feedback from IK developers on this.

    OK, I solved this. Turns out the default java install for Fedora 25 is "headless".
    I installed the "other" java-openjdk and now I can point to that in the Moneydance script.
