** i3 Window Manager is quite well documented. These are mostly notes for my own reference at this stage.
sudo dnf install i3 i3status dmenu i3lock
Volume, brightness, lock screen, wallpaper
Swap mouse buttons to be left handed:
| exec xmodmap -e "pointer = 3 2 1"
Change the movement keys to match vim:
# change focus
bindsym $mod+h focus left
bindsym $mod+j focus down
bindsym $mod+k focus up
bindsym $mod+l focus right
# move focused window bindsym $mod+Shift+h move left bindsym $mod+Shift+j move down bindsym $mod+Shift+k move up bindsym $mod+Shift+l move right
Now that $mod+h is being used to move left, we need to modify the key for horizontal split. I chose 'b' because it's fairly close to h, and next to 'v'. To me it makes sense to have them next to each other.
# split in horizontal orientation bindsym $mod+b split h
# Start network manager exec --no-startup-id nm-applet
By default, i3status looks for configuration files in the following order:
~/.config/i3status/config (or $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/i3status/config if set)
/etc/xdg/i3status/config (or $XDG_CONFIG_DIRS/i3status/config if set)
