@Elloquin If I understood it correctly you’re kinda a gimp wizard. Would you be willing to make a endeavours os Bspwm wallpaper when the time comes ?

I mean the wall should have references to bogh eos and bspwm in it but still be subtle - minimal - no flashing colors and bspwm itself is pretty minimal. On idle yo use approx 150 mb ram so a minimal wall would fit right in. No pressure - just asking

I am pretty sure I can come up with something :sweat_smile: I didn’t have any free time last night. Spent the evening going through the i3 config. The way it is out of the box you can’t have firefox (default) browser and a terminal open in two tiled windows side by side. Chromium worked fine so it was how the config was set up firefox /terminal wise. You also might want to see if @Shjim wants to get involved.

no worries - we’re not in a rush. I like to first have the plan in place and that we all agree on that plan - then we start the work itself - and that won’t take long. I usually set up bspwm in 12-15 minutes and that includes downloading Arch

I hope @manuel and @joekamprad gives us an aswr today so se can moove forward

Very minimal with EndeavourOS colors…very rough just a proof of concept.

The purple symbol in the middle needs work.

We could also go this route…

if you where talking on what i do for i3:
i do bind terminals to a workspace called terminals (or shown with a icon) and firefox is bind to the browser workspace, so if you open browser it opens at the browser workspace, but you can still move it with keystroke to another workspace.

Yes sir. Since this is my first time with i3 I was working off of the i3 manual (https://i3wm.org/docs/userguide.html) as a reference. It is just my noobness showing. I didn’t realize until I went through the config what was done differently. Once I understood that as well as what key bindings may have been changed it was a :man_facepalming: moment. :sweat_smile:

and to make it official:

From my side you are totally welcome to spin Bspwm setup, I will be happy to include this into the ISO when it is ready.

This is what we want from the beginning, working directly together with the community.

Curious how this will evolve…
I’ll definitely be giving this a spin when it comes out!
So far I’ve only used Bspwm for a little while on an Archcraft liveusb, but that thing was full of bugs, so didn’t spend a lot of time with it, and I ran back to my trusty i3

ok - so from on this is where
we discuss bspwm - no other post. -------this is it.
Both @Bryanpwo @manuel and @joekamprad are positive about this idea so I say we move forward. Now we have to come to agreement on what to put in this edition. My personal view is a browser - a file manager
and hlp them set up pu a mpd and nncmpcpp muis player. the rest hey can install on their on they’re own
we keep it minimal with EOS olors. If anyone disgrees fel free to speaksyour mind. This is it my procectt - but OUR projtct.

graphical text editor will be good for users not that comfortable with only terminal editors.
