Hardware Support #
Those using proprietary nvidia drivers for their graphics cards must set
regolith.sway.unsupported_gpu: true in their XResources. This is not an issue with the open source drivers nouveau. See more here.
Bar Changes #
The wayland session uses
i3status-rs rather than
i3status-rs provides a crisper and more resource-efficient approach to system monitoring. However at this time the
i3xrocks packages for status indicators are not integrated with
i3status-rs. To use a custom configuration with
i3status-rs, users will need to put their config file at the location of their choosing and they’ll need to set the
wm.bar.status_config to the absolute path of their config file in their XResources. See the upstream project documentation for further details.
