Thought it would be good to have a thread to report questions or bugs about the recent update on EOS i3wm. So here it is. I had very few issues.
- I did not manage to install flawlessly and run xfce along i3w. I know it is not recommended to install two DE/wm at the same time but xfce and i3wm worked well together in the November version.
Just thought I mention it. First time I installed xfce and then followed the EOS wiki to install i3wm after the fact… I booted in i3 session and clicked mod+enter to open a terminal I got an error message and a background voice reading some kind of error message, a robot voice, really weird stuff.
Second try, I used the online installer selecting both i3wm and xfce. I still got problems with opening terminal and windows a bit buggy and error message ( something with DBUS, freedesktop, sorry failed to record this, was late night…). Did anyone manage to install them both?
I moved on already and installed only i3wm using the online installer then everything works flawlessly, it is really nice. Also the colors and status bar, really awesome!
Summarizing, I have a thinkpad t490s, xfce and i3wm worked side by side in November but not with the current version. I am running now only i3wm but am reluctant to try installing xfce alongside due to the problems I encountered above.
can’t figure out the resize window keybinding, previously we used mod+r to go into resize mode then use arrows. Has this changed or could someone let me know what line I need to add in the config file, couldn’t find it. Appreciate it!
no bug, sorry for the dumb question but how do you set battery/power suspend settings like in xfce, suspend after 20min after inactive desktop etc. in i3wm
