  • note: wlroots does not support nvidia.
    so wayfire and sway wont work with nonfree(proprietary)nvidia driver.

so if you have nvidia graphics card.
try with free drivers(nouveau) but it may not work.

Booted to live session and mouse was there but no cursor visible, was there on the login screen only.

what graphics card do you have.
and if you have multi monitor system?

Wow with the new 0.3 update it seems we got some new cool stuff


And it's not just that, the animations of the tiling plugin just won my heart

Nvidia using free drivers, as proprietary won;t boot,single hdmi TV used as a monitor.

have you tried moving mouse too much.
as i have cursor on second monitor by default and have to move it to first monitor.

but it may be nvidia issue.
as i did not include nonfree drivers wuth minimal iso.
i will upload the full iso.it will have nonfree nvidia drivers.

due to an invalid symlink in /etc/skel it gives an error while installing in postcfg.
so i have made it unavailable.
will re-upload it later the corrected version.

This boot error? After "ok : graphical target reached. "

no there is no boot error.
even if the installation failed you can boot to installed system from advanced options in grub menu and choose fallback kernel.
but keyboard layout and all other things will not be setup.

or do you get any other errors?

Sorry, I can't boot from live-USB stick.

But it have the same error on some manjaro-iso's .
Sometime it boot, sometimes not.
I try your next ISO. No need for investigations :slight_smile:

i know you have nvidia so you need nonfree drivers.
i will include nonfree ones.
just the size will increase to 1.5 gb for minimal.
and full will be above 2 gb

that looks interesting I might grab a copy and play around with it.

What works with argyllcms on your ISO? I'm just interested as I have it installed as a requirement for DisplayCAL to interface with my Spyder 5.

its an opt dep for gnome-color-manager

Login failed, there is Guest and Wayfire, user can't changed to wayfire and password wayfire not work.
But live iso boot and desktop look awesome :slight_smile: - Full Version 2 GB

where password wayfire doesnt work?
in live boot?

Yes, virt. keybord write first letter big.
I try also with normal keyboard, and work with small letters.
typing from tablet :wink:

its working here.
i can use wayfire password in sddm login screen.
in live boot

User wayfire is in desktop Wayfire with big W

Zusammenfassung

okay i will give an update to sddm theme to disable capitalisation.of first letter.
but it will only affect installed system.

also since autologin is enabled
in liveiso you wont really need to go to sddm.
and guest user does not need password to login
