Sway configuration


sway configuration

Configure sway to be the tiling Wayland window manager.

TODO Contour back/prev

Figure this out. With --input-device=* it is working, but I cannot find the device identifier for the Contour specifically.

sudo libinput debug-events
swaymsg -t get_inputs -r

swaymsg 'bindsym --input-device=2867:8192:Contour_Design\,_inc._Contour_Receiver_Consumer_Control Ctrl+v exec notify-send hoi'
swaymsg 'bindsym --input-device=2867:8192:Contour_Design\,_inc._Contour_Receiver Ctrl+v exec notify-send hoi'
swaymsg 'bindsym --input-device=2867:8192:Contour_Design\,_inc._Contour_Receiver_System_Control Ctrl+v exec notify-send hoi'
swaymsg 'bindsym --input-device=2867:8192:Contour_Design\,_inc._Contour_Receiver_Mouse Ctrl+v exec notify-send hoi'
swaymsg 'bindsym --input-device=2867:8192:Contour_Design\,_inc._Contour_Receiver_Keyboard Ctrl+v exec notify-send hoi'

swaymsg 'bindsym --input-device=2867:8192:Contour_Design\,_inc._Contour_Receiver_Keyboard Ctrl+v exec notify-send hoi'
swaymsg 'bindsym --input-device=2867:8192:Contour_Design\,_inc._Contour_Receiver_Mouse Ctrl+v exec notify-send hoi'
swaymsg 'bindsym --input-device=2867:8192:Contour_Design\,_inc._Contour_Receiver Ctrl+v exec notify-send hoi'

Displays

Detect the correct display names.

(let ((hash (seq-find (lambda (screen)
                        (equal serial (gethash "serial" screen)))
                      (json-parse-string
                       (shell-command-to-string "swaymsg -t get_outputs")))))
  (if hash
      (concat (gethash "make" hash) " "
              (gethash "model" hash) " "
              (gethash "serial" hash))))

Background programs

Idle configuration

Use swaylock and swayidle to lock the computer after inactivity.

This will lock your screen after 300 seconds of inactivity, then turn off your displays after another 300 seconds, and turn your screens back on when resumed. It will also lock your screen before your computer goes to sleep.

set $swaylock "swaylock --show-failed-attempts --indicator-idle-visible --indicator-caps-lock --ignore-empty-password --daemonize --color 000000"

exec swayidle -w \
     timeout 300 $swaylock \
     timeout 600 'swaymsg "output * dpms off"' \
     resume 'swaymsg "output * dpms on"' \
     before-sleep $swaylock

Desktop notifications

Dunst is the desktop notifier.

exec dunst

Authentication

I’m using GNOME’s polkit authentication agent, for example to unlock 1Password.

(seq-find 'file-executable-p
          '("/usr/libexec/polkit-gnome-authentication-agent-1"
            "/usr/lib/polkit-gnome/polkit-gnome-authentication-agent-1"))
exec nil

Kanshi

Kanshi is a tool that helps you automatically change output profiles depending on which display are connected.

exec kanshi
