I have been using Manjaro Gnome on my laptop and I want to try one of the tiling managers ; like awesome, i3
As far as I understood I just need to install awesome via package manager and logout. Then choose the awesome session from gdm list . Then set some config and install extra packages compositor, dmenu or rofi, polybar if I need.
Is there a risk doing it if I want to switch back to Manjaro Gnome if I dont like it ?
Which session I should use to do the awesome installation ? (like Manjaro Xorg Classic)
Any recommendations , tips or tricks I should be aware of ?
Is it also possible to try Sway on Wayland ?
I missed the part “depending auto start” . what do you mean ? If i set up some application with the tiling manager to autostart some applications then if I switch to regular Gnome session , does it interfere ?
Depending on how you set up autostarting programs, they might autostart twice:
If you only use the config of i3 to setup autostarting program, there is nothing interfering. A problem might occur if you use the xdg generic autostarts at ~/.config/autostart. (By default, i3 is ignoring this.)
