I am running Manjaro with i3wm, and having had trouble with scaling of Hi-DPI displays recently, I wanted to try Sway. For that, I started installing a different (wayland-compatible) display manager, for which I chose ly.
I read that ly is pretty unstable and should not be used, but I want to keep i3wm. Is there a good alternative (I love the minimal TUI look) that supports X and wayland?
Now, I previously had some rofi menus set up, for example one power menu, from which I could lock/sleep/logout/reboot/shutdown the system. I took that powermenu from the polybar-themes repo, but basically, it is triggered by a keyboard shortcut in my i3 config and then runs commands, depending on what I chose. It used to work while I was still on LightDM, but now that I installed ly, all the commands don’t work anymore, except for locking the session.
When I do “systemctl suspend” or other ones (logout/reboot/shutdown) in a regular terminal, it now requires interactive authentication.
That wasn’t the case when I was on LightDM, nor should it be the case because these things should be able to be triggered from my power menu.
Do I need to give some sort of special rights to that script, or is it a setup thing?
I tried restarting the ly service as sudo and as not-sudo, but that didn’t change much.
Thank you in advance, really puzzled on this one, and also I couldn’t really find anything online.
