I've recently installed NixOs and I would like way-cooler to be my compositor. What configuration do I need to enable in the Nix config file?

    I suggest you scroll down on the page you linked to and read it properly. You will find a link to the NixOS package ...

  • @DavidPostill yes I installed the package. However, when I try to run it directly I gives me errors about shared libraries. On Archlinux it runs flawlessly.

  • So what errors do you get? Telling us what actually happens might help someone tell you what you need to do.

  • Seems enabling xserver in the Nix config installs all the missing libraries. I now get black screen with a mouse. Which is exactly what I didn't want to do as to have a lot of dependencies in the system.

By looking at the source code you will be able to enable it in your configuration.nix by adding something along the lines of programs.way-cooler.enable = true. It's jsut not in the stable release, yet.
