Configuration Files Garuda Hyprland

Hi guys!
I am customizing my garuda Hyprland little by little reading the forums and the official Hyprland page. I have several doubts since I see the same configuration files in different paths (hyprland.conf is located in /usr/share… and well in ~.conf/hypr…)
I also don’t know, for example, where the actual configuration of the icons is… etc.
My question is, is there any way to know exactly what files my distribution is using?
Thanks in advance for the answer.

The user-specific config overrides the system config. If the user config were missing for some reason, the system config would be used as a fallback. See also here:

Configuration is done through a single configuration file, hyprland.conf, though it supports splitting the configuration into multiple files and including them in hyprland.conf. The default file is /usr/share/hyprland/hyprland.conf and, after logging in for the first time, ~/.config/hypr/hyprland.conf.

You can also specify which config you want to use when you launch Hyprland, see here:

The config is located in ~/.config/hypr/hyprland.conf.

You can tell Hyprland to use a specific configuration file by using the --config (or -c) argument.

What is “etc” in this case?

Can you be more specific about the icons you need to configure?

If you mean application icons (in the launcher, for example), those follow the same spec as other desktop environments. Icons - ArchWiki

If you mean icons in the Waybar, you can change those when you edit the Waybar config (~/.config/waybar/config).

If you mean something else, you need to be more specific.

The answer to this question is “yes”. It’s hard to give a more specific answer unless you make the question more specific.
