@mmstick I was fine with regular GNOME on Arch until I started using Awesome. Now positioning or resizing windows manually, or having them overlap seems backward. I basically want Awesome and a display manager that properly handles displays coming and going at this point.
Wesley, have you tried https://swaywm.org ?
I never used Awesome so it’s hard to compare but I did reconnect displays under Sway and it was faster and more reliable than GNOME in it.
"Now positioning or resizing windows manually, or having them overlap seems backward." 🤣 👍
@wiktor Yep ;-) https://mastodon.social/web/statuses/101401693951934069 I like Awsome’s dynamic layouts model more than the i3/sway model. At this point though maybe it’s worth giving sway another go (or hacking it to do what I want).
