  • Some questions before switching to Sway

    This tag doesn't work anymore after sway migrated to wlroots afaik. You'll either have to use nouveau or try this wlroots fork: https://github.com/danvd/wlroots-eglstreamsThere's also an AUR git package if you use an Arch-based distro.

    Someone created a fork of wlroots that works with EGLStreams. With this installed you should be able to use any wlroots based compositor (sway, wayfire, etc) with an nvidia GPU.

    It is possible to run sway with nvidia blob, you need to use this wlroots fork. See README for caveats.

    Anyway, what you can try is use https://github.com/danvd/wlroots-eglstreams instead of the normal wlroots library - it is not tested very well, but it should work with nvidia.

    There's a wlroots fork that implements EGLStreams to work with nvidia. Keep in mind that HW accelerated XWayland doesnt work yet, the DMA-BUF support in 470 should fix that (if the person maintaining the fork implements it). Any wlroots based wayland compositor should work with this

    but i guess you could try the eglstream-fork (please report bugs to the fork not the main project) https://github.com/danvd/wlroots-eglstreams
