Currently running Garuda KDE Dr460nized, but would love install Hyprland as well. Sort of newbie question maybe at least to Hyperland.
Can I install Hyprland as well, and just pick the Windows manager I want. Meaning switch back forth at time of login. I really dont want to run it in a VM. Id like to start learning it on bare metal per say.
Wathing this guys youtube videos, has got me wanting to start learning Hyprland:
I have a 3rd TB hard drive I could attach to the system via USB and install to that. I just don’t like having an external drive in grub settings and then try to remove it later maybe.
I have not tried it with KDE but I have done this with Garuda SWAY and Grauda i3. (And Endeavor OS ) The only problem I’ve ever had was sway uses waybar also and his waybar config over wrote the one from SWAY. But I worked around that in sway. KDE doesn’t use waybar so you should be fine there.
Re: Hyprland I like Stephan’s setup a lot. I work with him on testing it.
On my main system at home I used Garuda Hyprland. I really like how it’s all put together in a consistent package. But when I really want to tinker or add it to another DE/WM I use Stephan’s setup.
Are you using BTRFS? Good to take snapshots ahead of time just in case.
Or at least backup your home dir completely.
