Unlike install of Sway (or prev. I3) to atoms, I installed LXQT first. I then installed Sway.
Problems solved, 1. no runner - installed wofi 2. No bar. default was for swaybar. edit on .config/waybar/config to waybar fixed. 3. I assumed xwayland would be pulled in as a dependency, prev on atoms it did (I believe). apt install xwayland fixed. 4. It needs the awsome fonts for icons. fixed.
5. The main thing I have been working on was to get a clock onto the waybar. I tried various configs via https://github.com/Alexays/Waybar/wiki and the assorted config examples. Fails. Problem is https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugrepo ... bug=973594 C++20

comment in May 2021 has a ubuntu ppa. No, I have not tried.
Waybar is 0.9.5.2 in both Bullseye and Sid. 0.9.6 is supposed to fix.
