Evening everyone, at least that’s what it is here! Just for your information, I don’t know who is already on Hyprland, but this relates to Hyprland and Nvim, today I tested a few things and normally Nvim, which is actually a terminal app, cannot be opened on workspace of your choice, well I have found out how this is possible in Hyprland.
You do this with the following keybind.
important in this case is the last part of the bind --class=nvim nvim I have not tested it yet, but this could also work like this in sway, for example, I also have to test this with bspwm on x11
But I suspect that this could work with any WM, but it is the case. I am currently running the git version of Hyprland because it is newer and has slightly more options than the regular core version.
@swh it do! As he states in the video “it makes sense to choose a Desktop Environment with Wayland support”. When I installed, I used the Sway Community Edition for the same reason.
When Galileo (the next major version of EOS) is released, I may redo my base installation, as KDE is under such active development, I have the space on this machine, it makes sense to keep up with the developments of Plasma 6, if only as a fallback.
You may prefer to use the JaKooLit Arch-Hyprland script because it offers many more customizations. Be sure to install Hyprland-git, as the version in the Aur is lagging behind by a couple of months.
@briainod Thank you for your detailed answer. My worries were, as you describe, not necessary.
I still have a leftover ssd hard disk, I could also install hyprland on it and then select the DE when starting. I will think about how to do that.
The possibility with JaKooLit Script looks promising.
@swh It’s sometimes worth ‘thinking about it out loud’, as we never know what we don’t know
After I ran the script, Hyprland showed up in the Display Manager and I could select it at login.
Ja’s script keeps evolving. Because I made alot of my own customizations, I haven’t upgraded for a while. Now that he has consolidated the versions into a single repo, I might fork it along with his Hyprland-Dots and create a branch for my modifications of the Waybar and keybindings. That way I can pull his changes and merge them into my branch.
