I am new to linux (8-10 years ago i tried mint 17, manjaro, fedora, and elemantary os) but always came back to windows because of my gaming days these days. Since a few weeks i am trying linux again I used Zorin OS 16 for 2 weeks but yesterday i got issues to install nvidia drivers manually and via ppa install. It got a bit messy and i decided to give manjaro a try. Nvidia is up to date and so is everything else phew
Now my question is, i hear alot about wayland vs x11. I installed manjaro yesterday but it didn’t install wayland. I am still on X11. How can i switch ? i saw a message from a user that said logout and when you want to sign in you can chose, i can’t see any option about this.
Another question, on google i have read that manjaro came stock with steam. When i did a install yesterday i didn’t get steam preinstalled. Which one do i need to install ? native or manjaro version ? or from the website from steam ?
Hellow, I advise you to create a post for one problem.
U can install Steam on Manjaro Repo (GUI WAY):
U should see an application call Add or Remove Software <-(it’s basically Microsoft Store but 500000000000 times better) open it. Then search for Steam and you should see Steam as the first result or second, click on it and install it.
Install steam via terminal in Manjaro:
You just type sudo pacman -S steam into your terminal. Yup, that’s it. Im not a TRUE GAMER so point me out if you see mistakes.
You can use either steam native or steam manjaro whichever you prefer. I’m definitely not an expert but I think one uses the steam libraries and the other the native libraries. I’ve also never used Gnome on manjaro but believe when you login you should be given the option to boot into wayland or x11 session. Which gpu drivers do you have installed
