I’m a new user and have just done a fresh install of EOS running the default sway config. I am using the proprietary GPU drivers (yes I know they are technically not supported), and am unsure how to configure the installed login manager to work with it.
I am able to launch sway by entering tty and running
sway --unsupported-gpu which works, but I would rather not have to do this work around every time I log in. Is there a way to add the needed flag to the login manager? Or, if that is not possible simply disable/remove the manager and automatically load straight into tty?
This can be done with
sudo systemctl disable sddm.service. Reboot, Then you’ll just open up into tty. You can create an alias for the flag and then just quickly type that if it’s too long.
Someone else will definitely know how to do this soon! I just thought I’d answer something I knew.
Welcome to the forum. I hope you enjoy your time here.
I have a script that I run from the desktop file:
# Jonathon's idea: +nvidia that doesn't work.....
exec sway --unsupported-gpu
#exec sway --my-next-gpu-wont-be-nvidia
I then chattr the desktop file so that updates do not overwrite it.
