Even though I’m absolutely happy with my i3-gaps, I installed Sway - just out of curiosity. I noticed that it has already been mentioned in other threads, so if you please could share your experience here, it would be great.
Sway is a tiling Wayland compositor and a drop-in replacement for the i3 window manager for X11. It works with your existing i3 configuration and supports most of i3’s features, plus a few extras. (Arch Wiki)
Some of my must have applications still don’t run on Wayland, so the main challenge is to find valuable replacements.
polybar doesn’t work, tint2 doesn’t work
I’ve found 2 solutions so far:
- waybar, which works, but looks like shit. Probably it may be customized to look better, who knows?
- py3status, which is actually a plugin to i3 / Sway status bar. It comes with over 100 modules, ready to use and easy to customize.
Some replacement apps, e.g. for taking screenshots or recording video, are listed in the Arch Wiki.

(in relation to Nvidia sucks and I’m sick of it)
Hmmm, I’m not so sure. Bumblebee seems to work on my optimus laptop:
Does anyone have any solution, tips, questions or answers? Please leave them here.
