I switched to Endeavor a few months ago after running Manjaro for a few years. It was great, though I wanted to move more into a Window manager than a desktop environment so I reinstalled using i3.
Pretty cool in concept, bit it seems like a lot of basic things aren’t working as intended, or maybe I don’t understand how they are supposed to work.
The first one is mapping caps lock to left ctrl, in my .config/i3/config I have the line exec --no-startup-id setxkbmap -option 'ctrl:nocaps' and that doesn’t work (maybe it’s the wrong command?) the only thing I got to work is adding overrides to .Xmodmap, but then I need to run xmodmap .Xmodmap every time I log in. How do I persist these settings in i3?
The hotkeys for adjusting window size don’t seem to work, at least not the defaults. Hitting mod+r then arrow keys does not do it? Again could be wrong?
Dunst doesn’t seem to respect it’s config file, as it’s supposed to display in the upper-right but it displays in the lower right, no matter what the setting is.
Thanks for advance for any help, this distro as a whole is incredible and I am amazed at how friendly the community is.
This seems to allow me to move other windows into other containers, but not set the width of two windows (or containers?)
I might not be using the terminology right, but if I want one container (full of terminals) to take up 30% of the screen, and another container of the browser taking up 70%, is the Resize mode not the way to do it?
If I hold mod (win key for me) and then hold left mouse button on a window, it allows me to move the window to a different workspace, or split it out (but not change the sizes). If I hold right mouse button while holding mod key, nothing happens.
