I am trying to switch from elementary OS to Manjaro. I have used Manjaro in the past but switched to elementary because I love the WM. Unfortunately gala doesn’t come up in the login screen.
Now I am trying to come back to Manjaro and install what I like about eOS. I installed the pantheon package from the manjaro repo. I then run
gala --replace which crashes gnome and forces me to logout. Does anyone have experience replacing gnome’s wm & title bar with gala/wingpanel?
Edit: On a second look, gala --replace is actually starting gala. I guess the question is how can i disable gnome’s WM and start gala at boot so gnome doesn’t crash and prevent me from using my desktop.
Edit: I have changed the .xinitrc files
