    If something should be added to the documentation/made more clear in the documentation feel free to open a PR on the GitHub, DM me, or peruse https://github.com/leftwm/leftwm/wiki .
    I know Manjaro out of the box has its own desktop environment choice (not sure what my manjaro is using), but how do I go about changing it? Say I want to use LeftWM, what steps must I take after I run yay leftwm?
    One of the really helpful pages if you want to change the keys in your config.toml is the lookup table for what keys de-serialize to what (note: they are case sensitive).
    Thank you so much! I hadn't noticed that! I'm now on LeftWM. But I have a question. What is `dmenu`? When I press the Windows Key (Mod key) + p on my keyboard, nothing happens! I'm trying to follow the default keys instructions.

    I'll have to keep an eye on your content, then! The command I'm talking is https://github.com/leftwm/leftwm/blob/master/src/bin/leftwm-state.rs , where the usual setup is to call it from polybar with an intermediate liquid template, but it may be a very different approach from what you have. Thank for the config, it is super helpful.
