  • GitHub repo Sway-DE

    Project mention: Would you guys share your dotfiles? | | 2021-10-12
  • GitHub repo grepo

    GKISS - A fork of KISS Linux that uses the GNU C library.

    Project mention: Crux vs. Kiss vs. Venom? | | 2021-11-08

    With Kiss, musl is used instead of glibc. That means you could have some troubles with some software. I have some troubles with a printer driver for example. I need to use an opensource version, but the driver is worse than the proprietary one. It works. I sometimes need libreoffice, but it's not packaged for kiss linux. To package it, it would be necessary to package a lot of dependencies. So it has not been done until now. If you really need glibc in Kiss, you can install a version with glibc in a chroot. There is a version with glibc instead musl. You could even install a version with glibc instead of musl. I think you can install some softwares with flatpak, for example libreoffice, but I have never done it. Someone else must confirm if it works.

    I use swaywm exclusively so I simply put export in .zshrc but for your case, you can run sway together with exporting environment variables via script. Similar to this one:
