In looking at alacritty further, I tried to launch alacritty from termite to look for error codes.
I got this:

[don@RPi4-Sway ~]$ alacritty

Termite worked as expected. Kitty did not.

Off to work on getting ownership and permissions fixed in the installer.

Thanks for everyone’s patience with this Sway newbie. With help from above posts, I am starting to get more comfortable with the short cuts on Sway. I have one more question on short cuts. Is there a keyboard short cut to open the exit menu, besides clicking on the power symbol in the extreme right side of the panel?

That the default. No sure if it removed.

# Exit sway (logs you out of your Wayland session)
bindsym $mod+Shift+e exec swaynag -t warning -m 'You pressed the exit shortcut. Do you really want to exit sway? This will end your Wayland session.' -b 'Yes, exit sway' 'swaymsg exit'

@Shjim [mod]+Shift+e worked and brought up the power drop down menu. :pray:

I just finished a successful install of Sway on the Raspberry Pi 4b. All ownership and permissions were OK. By the way, @OdiousImp, the problem was mine, not yours.

The only thing left on the to do list is fix alacritty, or use termite instead for arm.
I also do not have Welcome coming up at the first boot up yet.

Very close.

The alacritty devs don’t seem to be wanting to solve it anytime soon unfortunately.

Kitty’s facing a similar problem so I think we’re just better off using termite at least for ARM. Or termite for both?

Is this Sway edition only for ARM or for both ARM and x86_64?

It for both :+1:

@OdiousImp @Pudge

termite work good . it need configure by user =" cp /ect/xdg/termite.config ~/.config/termite/config "

user need to make .config/termite/config No sure new users will like or known how to … in Arm it maybe good for xfce-terminal set as easy to set up … just thought

alacritty + termite great for x86

I’ll add!

I’m stuck now between using XFCE4 or Termite for ARM. I’ve already made a termite config for the colorscheme…but @joekamprad and @Shjim seem to love XFCE4 Terminal… Ahhh. It will run wayland native. (Thought termite was made for wayland in the first place)

@Pudge @Elloquin thoughts??

As you see it is so that users have a beloved terminal, but if you put the one you like with a nice setup, you give the opportunity to try something new :wink:
