GTK3 settings editor for sway and other wlroots compositors

Nwg-look is a GTK3 settings editor, designed to work properly in wlroots-based Wayland environment. The look and feel is strongly influenced by LXAppearance, but nwg-look is intended to free the user from a few inconveniences

  • It works natively on Wayland. You no longer need Xwayland, nor strange env variables for it to run.
  • It applies gsettings directly, with no need to use workarounds. You don’t need to set gsettings in the sway config file. You don’t need the “import-gsettings” script.
