sway-git build script for latest wayland wm
#1
greetings,

sway is an i3wm replacement window manager for wayland, and my preferred ui. here's a build script for sway-git. working on debian sid arm64.

providing these build scripts as how-tos. the combination of linux 5.5, mesa-git and sway-git works exceptionally well on the pbp, which leverages the latest panfrost graphics and wayland.

after installing sway-git, consider these post-install recommendations:
  • copy sway/config.in to ~/.config/sway/config if you are starting from scratch
  • change $term to your preferred terminal (i use termit)
  • choose your background image
  • uncomment the swayidle block and configure to your liking
  • use the example trackpad input block below
  • comment/disable swaybar and "exec waybar" at the bottom of the config to use waybar instead
  • consider adding the included custom settings at the bottom of your file
  • (additional software referenced is grim light waybar blueman network-manager-gnome pasystray)

pbp trackpad:

       dwt enabled
       tap enabled
       natural_scroll enabled
       middle_emulation enabled
   }

Great, thanks a lot for sharing; will try it in a few days. I'm using I3 but would like to check how wayland performes; the PBP seems like a good benchmark device.
