I’m new to the community, but I figured I’d start here with a bit of a game. Finish the sentence, “I just got too fed up, so I…”
I can start: I just got too fed up today, so I’m using vanilla Gnome as a DE.
I’m a tilingWM person-thing at heart. I’ve been using SwayWM (i3 before that) and I have my environment scripted and all my dots checked into a private git repo, so setting up Manjaro just the way I like it should be no big deal, right? (Don’t get me started on vanilla Arch, I get it, I’m one of you, but only when I have time.) For whatever reason, I’ve been running into issues with everything from GDM recognizing a sway session to swayidle and swaylock not working. I use Sway overtop of a manjaro gnome base but I’ve just decided to move my “Tiling environment” into tmux/vim and call it a day.
So far? It’s pretty weird. All of the shortcuts need to be tossed in the skip and reset, but hey better the DE that works than a DE that doesn’t. Amirite?
