The problem is just that: after a while the international layout doesn’t work anymore. What could be causing this behavior? I’m not sure myself, as it isn’t constant – it just happens.
To set the layout I run:
exec_always --no-startup-id setxkbmap us -variant intl
in i3 config file before anything else, and obviously I don’t run the command
setxkbmap again; at first I ran
exec, but in an attempt to fix this weird behavior I started using
A fix to this bug is reloading i3, but although easy it’s annoying nonetheless
