How to try Niri without messing up my Manjaro KDE?

I am curious about Niri and want to give it a try.
i have not much knowledge of DE, compositors etc… so is it safe to install Niri in my existing Manjaro KDE installation without breaking it?

Running it in kvm/qemu is out of question, because i can’t run spice with 3d acceleration, thanks to nvidia. :frowning:

Is it safe to cross the street? No, however it can be if you look both ways first. :wink:

Only you can answer your question once you have done enough research.


reminds me of Mr. Miyagi :rofl:
ok, i will stop beeing lazy and do my homework :wink:

Just for all peoples convenience, here is the project page:

I guess I’ll take that as a compliment, AlexBoldt-san :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Using a installation on a USB drive might get you where you want to be, there are some guides on the forum how to do it.

my plan is similar.
i think it’s time to kick win 10 off the hard disk. I haven’t used it for a year. it’s probably broken anyway, because windows had the impudence to start the upgrade during shutdown and after an hour I hard reset the computer in frustration :wink:
