I would like to move from xorg/i3 to wayland/sway
maybe someone have already experience with sway? is it working well?
which is the best way to move to sway? just install it and also the package xorg-server-xwayland?
I’m already testing it since one hour, until now is working well but I would like to know your opinion
sway is stable.
You can even copy your i3-wm config file to sway, all your settings gonna be preserved.
I personaly couldn’t make the change since i’m fond to some xorg dependant packages, easystroke, for instance.
Archlinux has a good docmumentation on it
From the wiki above; " In order to use the Xwayland compatibility layer to run X11 programs under Wayland, it is necessary to install the xorg-server-xwayland package."
If you don’t depend one X11 packages (that can’t run for any reason on wayland) i’d suggest you to move to sway, it’s the future after all.
I have read the link provided, thanks a lot
so far so good, really good sway until now is working very well
I have just to find a working way to increase the font size everywhere
Actually the package
xorg-server-xwayland is a dependency of
plasma-wayland-session, so you don’t need to install it additionally.
Is necessary for those who don’t use plasma.
