New to endeavour after years on Debian/Ubuntu. I tried arch in the past, maybe 10 years ago, but encountered many boot issues and required too much manual tweaking. Just wow. Default XFCE and eos-welcome are almost perfect
I’m surprised “Install Timeshift” is not a dedicated option on eos-welcome or during install.
Anyway, I didn’t choose sway during installation. Is there a pacman one liner to install or do I have do it manually per t/want-to-try-sway-but-installed-previous-iso/13695. Just want to try it without wasting too much of my time.
The EnOS-Welcome-App gives more insight on how to do that quickly, I believe?
Would you be so kind to point me where in eos-welcome? I looked in “Add More Apps” and “After Install”. I do not see an option to install other desktop environment/WM.
Oops, sorry, I’m on Fedora momentarily. Maybe I was mistaken… But there’s
a whole thread on this forum, dedicated to it.
the Arch-Wiki, maybe not so quick after all…
A one-liner would be:
yay -S sway
…and require potential digging into aforementioned links for it to work ‘flawlessly’.
Welcome to the EndeavourOS forum. Thanks for giving EndeavourOS a try. I hope you enjoy your time here.
This will not help with installing SWAY, but in a terminal, enter eos-quickstart
and review this for installing needed apps.
The last I know, the best way to adding SWAY after installation, is as described here:
We don’t support AUR packages at install nor in eos-welcome.
It is very simple to install AUR packages after install:
yay -S "package-name"
To help installing sway, you can see the default Sway packages:
eos-packagelist Sway\ Edition
so installing Sway could be something like:
sudo pacman -Syu --needed $(eos-packagelist Sway\ Edition)
If you run that script, beware of the files it create so you don’t have the same issue I had when going back to a xorg system
Ok, 4 months later I find the fix:
Deleting the .profile file created by the sway community installation script (It’ll be located in the home folder). After that everything is fine again.
My situation was similar to yours, I had picked XFCE offline installation, later installed and manually configured i3, and then later downloaded sway and ran the community script.
