As much as I love playing with bspwm, can’t get to find out why it isn’t unable to start normally.
Upon login the screen doesn’t run anything at all but the EOS wallpaper. Can see the mouse prompt and all commands are responsive too, except, when running a terminal and try to run bspwm from there to see what’s happening, i get greeted with this message:
Another window manager is already running.
Like, what other window manager? Have xfce, i3 and bspwm installed, but the window manager running is independent of each session, so it can be ran unless you login first. So, why does bspwm complaints there’s another manager running already?
Now, when I refresh the desktop a couple times, bspwm is able to start just fine, so whatever window manager was running before seems to be gone. Picom launches fine, terminals are transparent, polybar gets loaded, etc.
How can I diagnose what’s causing the problem here? Looked through the logs and didn’t see anything weird happening. Could optmus-manager be to blame here?
Anyway, if I can provide logs just tell me and I’ll see what I can dig.
Thanks my dudes.
