so mod+_ doesn’t work. im using the default i3config that came with the install so everything should be working?
# open new empty workspace bindsym $mod+Shift+n exec ~/.config/i3/scripts/empty_workspace
Depending on your keyboard, it should work ootb. Even on a Macintosh keyboard it works. In a VM, again, depending on your installed kb-layout and VM-kb-shortcuts, too.
are you telling me to put that in my config or thats the command i need to use?
not using a mac or a vm. this is the relevent section.
switch to workspace
bindsym $mod+1 workspace $ws1
bindsym $mod+2 workspace $ws2
bindsym $mod+3 workspace $ws3
bindsym $mod+4 workspace $ws4
bindsym $mod+5 workspace $ws5
bindsym $mod+6 workspace $ws6
bindsym $mod+7 workspace $ws7
bindsym $mod+8 workspace $ws8
bindsym $mod+9 workspace $ws9
bindsym $mod+0 workspace $ws10
It is already in the config, so try it to see if it works.
If opening a new workspace is what you had in mind.
its not working which i don’t understand. however if i open xfce that opens in two so clearly its working just cant do it from the keyboard.
ok i figured it out. there needs to be some way on the screen to see what workspace your in(see where im going?). since firefox is set to open on two and its autoloading 2 is already opened. when xfce opened it opened in one.
definitely a pebkac problem but in my defense there needs to be a way to see what workspace your in easily.
$mod+1, $mod+2, $mod+3 … till $mod+0 (i.e. $ws-10).
$mod+shift+n creates an additional workspace to those 10, like already said above.
