Is there a lite ISO of garuda with tiling WMs?


Have been looking into garuda, and it seems really cool, does a lot of stuff right!

The only problem I have with it is the extensive configuration and preinstalled programs, it's just not my taste.

There's a lite ISO that seems to not have this problem, but it only comes with KDE - it would be nice if there was an ISO like that but with other, stock DEs or WMs, because I don't really want to have to clean all of the KDE stuff when I install.

Is there something like that?

Hi there, welcome to the forum!
Haven't you looked on our website?
There are several options for you...

Download all the tiling WM editions on a Ventoy USB, try them all and make your choice :wink:

Ops, no no no, reinstall...


All of the tiling window managers are pretty light, especially i3 and Sway.

If you don't want to use a piece of software that comes preinstalled, just uninstall it. It's practically as easy as changing your wallpaper.


There are no KDE stuff on WM's.

Just use KDE lite.


Thanks for helping!
Sorry, I think I wasn't clear enough :slight_smile:
I'm looking for an ISO image that comes with stock WMs, without the extra programs usually installed with garuda (Except of course all the important Garuda tools, like btrfs-assistant and such)

I am looking for such a thing because I like all the system configurations Garuda does out of the box, but I don't like Garuda's WM customizations, also I'm an Hyperland user, and Garuda doesn't have an ISO for that.

Is there something like that?

Nope, In the time you've spent reading and writing this, you could have purged every DE of what you don't like.

How many versions would we have to create to please everyone and have them stop working on it? :slight_smile:


+ Kwin Script Bismuth for tiling! Deal? :wink:

Jokes apart, you have to try... Unneded software is subjective.


Hyper, Hyper or Hyprland?


Well I guess I'll just remove KDE as Garuda already has a ton of ISOs.
Thanks! :slight_smile:
