  • Original wallpaper text on new background
    1 project | /r/hyprland | 2 Jul 2023
    When you first install Hyprland there is the small text on the bottom center of the screen that is changed every restart. Is there any way to get it on new wallpaper with Hyprpaper?

  • Wayland breaks your bad software
    2 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 30 Mar 2024
    I've been wanting to try http://hyprland.org/, but since plasma gets me far enough and provides a working taskbar (wifi, sound, bluetooth, mount, clipboard) and virtual desktops on which I end up opening just firefox and emacs I haven't really given it a chance.
  • Hyprland Crash Course
    14 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 23 Mar 2024
    Hyprland builds using a pinned commit of wlroots instead of a tagged release because wlroots release schedule is too slow for Hyprland's development [0]

    This turns into a problem for maintainers because many distributions refuse to ship non tagged versions of software

    Hyprland used to depend on wlroots-git, but when it made the switch to use specific pinned commits a lot more distributions started to package it [1], but some still refuse to do so such as Debian.

  • Improving cursor rendering on Wayland
    4 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 15 Mar 2024
    I have Hyprland a try some weeks/months ago, and seemingly it had a video memory leak where after some hours of usage, it ended up taking more than 5GB of VRAM, with no signs of slowing down.

    I found one issue (https://github.com/hyprwm/Hyprland/issues/1504) mentioning something similar, but it was closed and I was still experiencing the same issue, so not sure what's going on.

    Gnome3 doesn't manifest the same issue, so worth checking out if it happens to you if you're curious about moving from Gnome to Hyprland.

  • RubyWM – an X11 window manager in pure Ruby
    5 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 22 Jan 2024
    I've been an X11 holdout since forever, but after nvidia proprietary drivers broke for the millionth time on a system upgrade, I switched over to Nouveau and the "Hyprland" tiling compositor on Wayland. It's the only setup that felt worth the upgrade to me. Setup was easy, animations are very slick (scroll down on the link below for a sample), and I've had no bugs or quirks. Highly recommend checking it out if you're bored or curious.

  • Is there any transparent themes for GTK 2 or QT?
    1 project | /r/archlinux | 10 Dec 2023
    I did some research as far as I know there isn't really a way for it to have a transparent window but not transparent text although I found this, basically change the opacity of the window/program. You can also set active and inactive opacity on the window if that's any help.

  • Regular package vs git package
    1 project | /r/hyprland | 22 Nov 2023
    Therefore I am considering switching to hyprland-nvidia-git, but when I look at its AUR page (https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/hyprland-nvidia-git) it says 0.31 as the version, whereas the latest version is 0.32 (https://github.com/hyprwm/Hyprland/releases). I thought the git package would be cutting edge "automatically", but perhaps I'm missing something...?
