You have no DE as in you are just using a TTY? Or do you mean you are using a tiling window manager?
If it’s the latter, just install a brightness control frontend like brightnessctl and map your tiling window manager’s keybindings to the appropriate commands.
If you are concerned that the physical buttons on your keyboard aren’t working, you can check with xev for Xorg and wev for Wayland. E.g; when you xev and start pressing keys, the program will print out a bunch of data on the command line about the keys you just pressed.
In any case, you’re going to have to provide more information on your current setup.
waybar-hyprland is not in the official repo. It’s in the AUR. If you want to use it, you will have to uninstall waybar first.
You seem to have waybar installed already. Check
pacman -Qs waybar
Which is why I don’t understand how this happened. That shared object file should be present on your system if you’d installed waybar properly with pacman. The shared object file libfmt.so.9 is provided by the fmt package, which is listed as a dependency of waybar.
There’s already a bunch of boilerplate code written for this.
Deadd certainly looks nice if you’re into that (since you’re using hyprland, I’m assuming you are very into the aesthetics of your desktop environment). I used to use dunst, but I don’t even bother nowadays to tell you the truth. My workflow has become so terminal centric that I don’t even use a notification daemon anymore. Everything I need to know is already displayed on my status bar.
yeah i got the basic power menu installed, but trying to customize. basically i went tty only so i could have the most customizations i could since kde and gnome have so many things attached to them.
do you know any code to help figure out how something is installed?
i installed deadd-notication-center like a month ago and i thought i had removed it then but running deadd-notication-center prints out /usr/bin/deadd-notication-center: line 1: Not: command found
so i guess its still installed? i might have done it via github clone, i dont remember.
i found a config file for it, and wanted to see if that worked otherwise i’d go dunst as deadd was a headache last month.
i actually uninstalled it and installed deadd-notification-center instead (versus deadd-notification-center-bin) before i read your comment (took awhile to get all the dependencies) instead which seems to work but i ran the two code you told me anyways
Those two are the same package. The -bin version is just a precompiled binary version.
The installation of deadd-notification-center took longer not because of dependencies, but because everything has to be compiled from source (you probably saw a bunch of texts being printed on the terminal during the installation).
