    I remember being endlessly entertained by the rotating cube animation between workspaces in the old Beryl implementation.

    I told my wife, “but does your Windows do this?” Followed by rotating the cube. She was like, “I don’t care.” And that was that.

    I shall tell this story to my grandkids.

          Yeah I also use KDE on my desktop, though I have my laptop running QTile because the tile hotkeys are much more convinient than navigating with the trackpad.

              Sure, but that’s not the only benefit to having full control over the entire tiling interface. I enjoy building out the features and visuals I want in python. It’s fun to have that level of control.

          What kde provides that sway or hyprland don’t?

              For what it’s worth, a large number of the things you listed are actually portable into Sway, i3wm, and a lot of other tiling wms just by way of running the KDE settings daemons - I do the same kinds of things (network printer, theming, auto-mount, auto-start, XDG config, firewall, vpn, network settings, monitors, keyboard layout) just by having i3wm start up xfce-settings-daemon.

              I’m not familiar enough with KDE to make promises about grub and splash, but I would imagine those would also work exactly the same as well. In fact, a little bit of searching and it looks like if you’re on Wayland you could even just replace KWin (the KDE window manager) with Sway in the startup files and be 95% of the way there. Might just need to configure a system bar or something to that effect.

      Amen. I’d install Hyperland on both of my “main” PC and on my Rpi 4 but my rpi 4 (still) has sway and it “just werks” so eeeeeh

          Works fine on my laptop (1650 hybrid) and desktop (3070 no iGPU)

          Under NixOS on both machines, no xwayland.

            programs.hyprland = {
              enable = true;
              enableNvidiaPatches = true;
            };
          

          Is the basics to get it up and running under NixOS + HomeManager

            I’ve done that already though haven’t disabled xwayland didn’t realise that would work without being compatibility

              Just don’t run X applications 😅

              I’ve seen no issues on my setup, might just be luck of the draw? What hyprland build are you running? What issues are you seeing?

                Whichever one is current in nixpkgs stable

                On my laptop when it goes to sleep and wakes up everything looks corrupted and it crashes back to the gdm login screen after a second or two

      A couple days ago I tried Hyprland just to see what it was like. I’ve been on XFCE for over a decade and expected to play with Hyprland for a couple hours, go “Huh, that’s cool”, and uninstall it, but I think the switch may be permanent. It’s fantastic

      Hyprland is better if you’re on Nvidia as well.

      Mainly because if you ask for help with Sway on Nvidia then people basically tell you to fuck off and call you a cunt.

      For real tho, they’ll actually chastise you just for asking a question.

    I just got into wayfire after using Hyprland and nobody prepared me for the cylinder. I will open windows and wait for the screensaver just to see the rotating cylinder. So much better than the cube

    My daily driver is Sway on Arch. I’ll help shout out the glory of this setup.

    Sway has become a joy to use over time as I’ve fucked with my config but now I feel like it’s more boring too I barely ever feel the need or want to massively change anything 🥲

      Same, I got “bored” so I tried hyprland for a bit on another machine, but when I realised I’d rather have the animations turned off, and was trying to make the config the same as my Sway one, I realised all I needed was Sway. Swaylove4eva

    I’m with you. One day I was like “I wonder if Wayland’s mature enough to use as my daily driver now” and installed Sway on a Raspberry Pi. I used DWM before, but now Sway’s my default.

    The only issue I still have is that I wish Zoom and ffmpeg supported the wlroots-specific screen capture methods. Those are the only things lacking that are keeping me on i3/X11 on the machine I use for work.

    Do managers like this lend themselves to better performance? Or is it just more for looks/easy tiling?

      Both i3 and sway are very lightweight so you do get good performance, but it’s the easy tiling / no-nonsense looks that appeal to me.

        You know. I was just thinking my window management hasn’t been as performant as I’d like. I really need my windows to move a bit faster.

    Fedora Sericea is my current daily driver. Loving it so far. I’ve used Sway, River, and Hyprland on Arch, Fedora, and NixOS. The combination of an immutable system augmented by flatpaks and distrobox are supporting my goal to never wipe the drive again.

    Sway is more stable and lightweight for me than Hyprland. I don’t use Nvidia hardware at all. The lead Dev on Hyprland is a treasure though. 10/10 for that human being.

    Just switched last night!!!

    So far it’s been great, but I need a way to migrate over my keybindings from xmodmap. I tried searching but everywhere I go gives a different answer. Can anyone help guide me in a direction? I’m primarily looking to remap caps to escape/control on hold. Would be great to remap some unused keys on my laptops keyboard to media keys as well. Thanks!!

    been playing around with sway on my laptop and it’s been pretty fun. Tiling window managers are fun!
