I need guidance on doing a few tasks or just a straight forward link to a documentation I can read to understand what I need to do here.
I need to do the following things:
change default terminal to be alacritty (I have tried to edit .config/sway/config and doing set $term alacritty but I dont quite think it has worked, infact I dont even know what terminal its using when I press super enter, because both foot and alacritty use opaque windows where as this terminal uses translucent windows).
change terminal font and font size, its getting very hard to read, i have to like spam ctrl and + every time i open terminal to be able to read. On other distros I can just right click terminal and then change settings
change shell from zsh to bash (I like bash more)
make terminals opaque, (me like opaque )
adjust spacing between tiled windows, I prefer to have no spacing.
I have a dual monitor setup (i set up the arrangement and stuff already thanks to a guide on yt) and on windows i prefer to only have a taskbar on one screen to free up more screen space. Now on linux i have 2 “top bars” and I would like to get rid of one of them from either primary or secondary monitor.
(ill figure this out on my own) change alacritty theme to gruv_box dark
Anything labeled a “Window Manager” (Sway, i3, etc.) is intended for more experienced users. Not that a new user can’t use it, but you are expected to know how to configure things yourself and be good at google-fu. If you want a bit of an easier experience I recommend sticking with only things labelled “Desktop Environment” (GNOME, KDE, XFCE, Cinnamon, etc.) until you get the hang of how things tend to be done in Linux.
yeah i noticed after running it with and without sudo. The -h also tols me that i could specify a user so i did that with sudo chsh -s /bin/bash redpz and it said it would change the shell for me and it just fails so
