No app launcher in Sway

Hey everyone, back again after many moons. I just installed and chose sway as my lone wm. Coming from other distros or i3 I have grown accustom to super+d opening a menu of some sort for launching apps. It doesn’t seem to work that way here on Archlabs, I looked in the config to see if the shortcut changed and didn’t see anything about a launcher. Any help would be great, or should I just install the launcher of my choice?

never mind, I found it… crtl+space

Which iso did you use to install?

Do you have the sway shell/desktop? You should have lines similar to:

bindsym Control+space     exec $launcher
bindsym Mod1+F1           exec $launcher

in the config file.
