I3 Power menu - Hibrernate not working

$mod + Shift + e - brings the powermenu up
logout and shutdown work
Hibernate and Lock - do not work. Any advice on how to make them work?
Thank you

do you change any configs for i3 or using defaults from install?

powermenu uses this commands:

systemctl poweroff
systemctl reboot
systemctl suspend
systemctl hibernate
i3-msg exit

you could try them from terminal to see if p.e. ~/.config/i3/scripts/blur-lock shows any issue error warning …

I think I added keyborad layout options. But that’s it(as far as I remember at the moment)

from terminal ~/.config/i3/scripts/blur-lock - works; and so does $mod + l

Here’s what systemctl hibernate returned:

@EndevourOS scripts]$ systemctl hibernate
Failed to hibernate system via logind: Not enough swap space for hibernation

that means you do not have a proper resume setup… so it can not work… may no swap or swap file used on installation.

but that the lock works from terminal and not over the menu is strange.
It is working generally… just tested…

you could try to make scripts for i3 executable again:

chmod -R +x /.config/i3/scripts

I get a spinning ball of colors. But nothing happens.

ok. is there a way to change this?

yes depending on what you setup for swap.

this could fix it

fdisk -l

Which looks like may be I have no swap file??

looks like swap partition to me :wink: better post fstab and grub configs:

cat /etc/fstab
cat /etc/default/grub | eos-sendlog << this will upload it to pastebin and give url you can post…

and here’s the link to /etc/default/grub

so no swap no swap file …
but swap used on debian install? you could use the same swap partition for EndeavourOS ( not the best way if you use hibernation/suspend …) or go to create swapfile… or shrink a partition and add a swap partition… all involves some work to do…
I am now off from the desk for some hours …

ok thank you
I’ll proceed with caution…
Thank you
