After some problems . I have decide to undertake to building swaywm as daily driver on fedora. here what did so far first install i3 fedora and installed sway on top of. then i coped the sway config to home directory. Then install waybar
Code:
sudo dnf install waybar
then i edited the sway configuration file to add in
Code:
bar {
  swaybar_command waybar
}


then i coped the default waybar config and style.css to home directory. I then edited the files to change the look as feel of way bar. so far that what i have done other then add google chrome and remove firefox. I also enable rpm fusion repositories the Free repository. I think i need to add Bluetooth and screen capture next . I going to have remove bmenu and replace it with wofi . I keep you updated how it going. I also got disable lightdm and start from terminal. cheers have a great day

Glad to see you have got Sway working, I have been running Sway for a little over a month myself now and I am quite enjoying the Wayland experience.

With Xorg I was using dmenu since I never liked rofi so I for sure won't like wofi, so now with Sway I am using bemenu.

No I don't, I'm from Europe and I don't watch regular TV anymore, only Streams.
