To be fair I am very new to tiling window managers, I have been bouncing around between Manjaro i3(bspwm)/InstantOS and many others. My laptop came with Mint 20 when I bought it.
I do not consider myself a real adept, but I am very curious and like to check out new ideas.
So yesterday I installed the i3wm EndeavourOS with the endeavouros-2020.09.20-x86_64.iso.
Here are some of my findings after a good 2 hours of fiddling.
- Out of the box there is one part missing: playerctl
- Mute did not work as intended: bindsym XF86AudioMute exec amixer sset Master toggle && killall -USR1 i3blocks only mutes, does not unmute, this has to be: bindsym XF86AudioMute exec amixer -D pulse sset Master toggle && killall -USR1 i3blocks
I would personally advise to use the linux-lts kernel by default en let people install a newer one if they desire.
Other than that, it’s true to KISS and really is a breath of sorely missed balance in what is there and what can be tweaked and configured by oneself.
