For the impatient, I compiled a tgz for you


https://www.dropbox.com/s/278y3u9gdsg69kb/dizzies-i3-package.tar.gz


1. I use CHROMIUM, don't like that browser, fix it using your favorite editor (mine is vim, but nano or medit works too)
2. My terminal of choice is URXVT, don't like that terminal, fix it using your favorite editor (mine is vim, but nano or medit works too)
3. My COLOURS are set in .Xdefaults, don't like? Don't use :)
4. My font of choice is INCONSOLATA, don't like, don't use :)
5. Added my .conkyrc as a bonus, because that's how I roll  8)

and the "Screenshot or it didn't happen is below"

Hi Dizzie

Common problem: Conky refuse to start because of my temp/fan readouts, So disable those lines with '#' if conky wont start.


And fix accordingly to your own system (run sensors-detect & sensorts in a terminal to see what needs to be changed)


Let me know if that becomes a problem and I will help with a fix :)

Hi Dizzie

I have a number of boxes and so tend to have the same conky everywhere which is fairly minimal and don't setup the sensors.

Ok dizzie  you've convinced me. I'll create a vm to try out i3, a nice clean debian. ;)

Is there any difference between i3 in stable, testing and sid?

@ozitraveller

the i3 version in debian stable is 4.2.x, testing and sid have 4.6.x - there were several changes between those versions; xft font support being one as well as some feature enhancements for container management.

if you want to live on the edge, there is a debian repo you can add to get the latest development release -> http://i3wm.org/docs/repositories.html

As promised in the screenshot thread (and yes I know this is a VERY old thread, and I don't care)


In the xz file is :


- conkyrc's (top and bottom) for a single screen system
- stuff that runs the conkyrc's (~/bin)
- My .Xdefaults for colors and fonts for use with most terminals (I use rxvt)
- My .vimrc cause I am nice
- My mc (midnight commander) colors (that matches the rest)


You're welcome :)

I couldn't get the wlc dependency to build on my system- comolained about some other missing dependencies as I recall.
I don't think wlc is in the debian repos either, unless it's packaged under a different name.
