Sway wm bugs
Closed, WontfixPublic

Description

So, I've been trying sway wm, which is wayland exclusive for past couple days. Aside from brightness control which is already being discussed elsewhere, here are issues exclusive to sway that I've found so far.

  • Insufficient dependencies : While sway works without all of these, its intended functionality is hampered without some very needed ones, eg dmenu. I'm experimenting to see if any others are missing.
  • Absolutely no config is being accepted. Any non empty file at .config/sway/config results in black desktop.

dmenu isn't a runtime dependency and thus wouldn't be added.

Absolutely no config is being accepted.

This should be reported upstream then.

Perhaps I worded it incorrectly. Sway is configurable with config file, however, any configuration file present in ~/.config/sway results in crashed desktop.
