I really like i3wm but am interested to install it along with another DE. Until now xfce worked out quite well. My question, does anyone have experience with running i3wm with EOS theming and gnome 42?
Can both be installed at the same time for one user from the online installer? any conflicts to think about?
Looks like something I would get confused and screw up fast on my system. I guess the key would be to set up two users with different config files. Or maybe I need to start i3wm vanilla, and install after gnome. My preference would be the same user for both login sessions. Just switch it depending on my mood or task of the day.
if I manage, I can share my config file. Essentials would be to modify the eos script and use nautilus and other gnome apps instead of xfce. Theming might be tricky for icons, would have to check, but both xfce and gnome are gtk based after all. Many current tools seem to be in line with xfce in i3wm themed eos.
I have never heard of that, but I probably have a super extreme yolo attitude, because I use linux as daily driver and mess around with my installs sometimes when I shouldnt. But on the other hand, I have a nextcloud server at home, backup of all my files is key
edit: and now I have chezmoi and config files to get things set up and installed quickly!
That seems to be the case.
I have all my files backed up via synching (basically local backups across multiple computers) and all my config files via chezmoi. So if my arm development machine borks due to the things I put it through, I can nuke and pave and have a development environment running in 30 minutes.
