Fedora 26 + i3 window manager

Hay, please ignore this post, it’s really for my own benefit as I tend to come back to my posts when I need information, in this instance it’s part of my config for the i3 window manager

# start a terminal
bindsym $mod+Return exec gnome-terminal

# thunar
bindsym $mod+t exec –no-startup-id thunar

# load nm-applet
exec –no-startup-id nm-applet

# load backdrop
exec -no-startup-id feh –bg-scale /home/paulmellors/Storage/wha.jpg

# Volume control
bindsym XF86AudioRaiseVolume exec –no-startup-id pactl set-sink-volume 0 +1%
bindsym XF86AudioLowerVolume exec –no-startup-id pactl set-sink-volume 0 -1%
bindsym XF86AudioMute exec –no-startup-id pactl set-sink-mute 0 toggle

# lock screen
bindsym $mod+l exec –no-startup-id i3lock -i /home/paulmellors/Storage/locked.png

Ok that’ll do it 🙂

Is anyone else out there using the i3 WM?

  1. bindsym $mod+Mod1+Left move workspace to output DP-1
    bindsym $mod+Mod1+Right move workspace to output eDP-1

    For moving my entire workspace to a different monitor. Output names from xrandr.

  2. Been using it for months the amount of customization is insane. Definitely keep your eye out for i3 gaps fancy i3 lock write your own scripts for i3 bar in perl/python. i3 bar using conky as it’s status updater is a life saver for simplifying adding custom scripts. Much much more.
