My New Desktop Hyprland

Hyprland is an amazing desktop that feels amazing. Here is my current setup that is being made.

Please Note: This is beta and not for a beginner. You WILL encounter bugs!

Workarounds that need to be addressed

  • Recommend archinstall with Sway as desktop for base
  • SDDM-GIT is required or you will run into shutdown bugs and delays
  • SDDM needs to be configured for autologin (recommend using swaylock on start of script for security)

Bugs

  • Hyprland is still in beta (0.2) as of the creation of these dot files
  • Sometimes my RX5700XT goes to sleep and requires a reload, because it is stuck on black screen.

Work In Progress

  • Help Popup with Hotkey
  • Wayland guide for nwg-look, wlr-randr, etc.
  • Synergy Workaround - Looking at waynergy or just using KVM
  • Gamescope Addition - Adding more parity with Steamdeck features
  • More Customizations for Waybar - Battery, Backlight, etc.
  • Auto-configuration - Long term goal
