Xresources: A method of storing key values in the Xserver. Change settings and font to size 10 of some look that you like. I find myself now generally using a "master-stack" approach to window management with i3. Try Manjaro without modifying your current operating system. 2. With i3 my hands hardly leave the keyboard and almost never reach for the mouse. You can also use Torrents to download Manjaro. I've simply renamed the containers into something I understand; I have a container to my git related stuff (git clients and stuff), a container for several IDEs I use, another for apps I'm using to deploy applications to several web servers, and a container with stuff related to the latest javascript question/problem I'm figuring out. Tomáš Báča wrote a neat script that makes this functionality much simpler to use. Install Manjaro Linux i3. To eliminate the screen tearing found there were several tweaks needed to the ~/.config/picom.conf configuration file. in ~/.config/dunst/dunstrc. In other words YMMV - and expect to have to modify the below to suit your needs. See Use a swap file and enable hibernation on Arch Linux - including on a LUKS root partition. Now you can edit the new config files to suit your needs. Create or edit .Xresources your preferred DPI by adding the following (in this example I've set my DPI to 88 dots per inch): Recently Chromium appears to be respecting the Xft.dpi setting (which previously it didn't). : I wrote several scripts and integrated these directly in my i3.conf. To make these settings permanent, you can either add them to your .i3/config file, or set the options in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/30-touchpad.conf. by installing volumeicon with. Below is the resulting file, which should be placed in the rofi theme folder (see above). I don't know if this is something configured by default on my system (I just recently installed Manjaro i3). Instead, we can set the DPI directly by editing (or creating) ~/.Xresources. Resetting picom with mod+alt+c fixes this and reapplies my default transparency setting for sticky windows. manjaro i3 released /17.1.1/manjaro-i3-17.1.1-stable-x86_64.iso.sha256 3 years ago manjaro i3 released /17.1.1/manjaro-i3-17.1.1-stable-x86_64.iso.sha1 For reference here is my ~/.config/picom.conf. It might not work directly on your system as it depends (somewhat) on other applications I install/use (these are also outlined in the the guide below). In order for the use case(s) above, you really want to bind the scratchpad application to a keyboard shortcut that can be pressed to show the scratchpad application, and then pressed again to hide said application. This works quite well, but I find this adds to the "visual noise" in a busy i3 session. The following approach replaces the default inactive window transparency with picom dim rules. You can also modify the look of the system notifications. This got annoying pretty quickly. Apparently, it's caused by the USB 3.0 chip used on the machine. After some research it appears to be an X11 session property which can be disabled by running the following from terminal: You can make this stick after reboot by editing /etc/xprofile or ~/.xprofile (user specific setting) and adding the above command to either file. On first start (and on all following starts, unless you have a configuration file), i3 will offer you to create a configuration file. The above shortcuts will enable the ANTIDIM property for the currently selected window (which will disable dimming on said window) or disable the ANTIDIM property (which will then respect the default dim settings defined above). I prefer my sticky windows to be opaque by default, and using the above I can then change them to suit. This can be achieved with a single bindsym that uses zenity (so make sure you have the zenity package installed) to pop up an input window for you to enter a container name and then focuses on the window parent, renames the container and then focuses back on the child window. Note, even with this, after first starting up and then (the first) sleep - my machine wakes up immediately (unless I close my lid, which makes it stay asleep). I'm also a big fan of Arch and the user-friendly Manjaro Linux (which is based on Arch). Thereafter when it woke it would, after about 10 seconds, sleep again ad infinitum. Various patched variants exist which extend dmenu's default functionality. Ease to switch Linux kernels. Useful for when you have a complex window layout and want to remove all windows and place in simple tabbed layout. I have two conky configs: one for showing various system stats (like cpu, RAM, swap etc.) Note that the synaptics driver is deprecated and hasn't been updated since 2012. § Common directories 4 ways to Customize Xfce desktop. If you're using stock Manjaro (or Arch) please ensure you have at least the following packages installed: i3-wm (or i3-gaps if you want dem' gaps), i3exit, i3status, py3status, and picom. It is kept up to date with upstream, adding a few additional features such as gaps between windows (see below for a complete list). Learn how to create a bootable USB-Stick and My usage and window management approaches in i3 have evolved over time - and continue to evolve. To apply/remove this window property on a selected window add the following bindsyms to your i3.conf: For the above shortcuts to work, you'll need to install xdotool and xprop. However, it didn't quite match the colours of my current theme. You can install all these packages with: Note that this config file contains other modifications that I prefer in my i3 setup, such as: I have several bindsyms that use integrated bash scripts (i.e. Normally, depending on XDG, in ~/.config/rofi/config. Below are just a few of the window management approaches that have stuck with me. These are my 10 things to do after installing Manjaro. Of course, you can write a script to do all this and call it from your i3.conf, but I prefer to explicitly define the bash script in my conf (partly to cut down on others needing to take copy of my scripts separately from my i3.conf file). YOU are awesome, Please consider donating and help guarantee the future of this project. You'll note that I (perhaps peculiarly) use mod=Mod1 (super key) and mod_next=Mod4 (alt) instead of just using a single key mod key. After that first "wake-up" it will now sleep properly (i.e. and then click on a window to set the transparency for that window. There are currently four methods of setting configuration options: 1. disk format change (showing decimal %used / %total); added wlan ip address and ethernet ip address (these are hidden if not connected); added battery %remaining time (next to %percentage). Below I've embedded a modified version of the script into a single bindsym command: The above method can be used to default any container name to that of (for example) the currently selected window at the time of creating the container. It turned out that the i3 image have had some serious issues back then. Manjaro Linux is ranked 3rd while ArcoLinux is ranked 9th. Or install it to your hard drive. Manjaro is a Linux distribution inspired by Arch Linux. i3, Cinnamon, and KDE are probably your best bets out of the 6 options considered. Before you can use my py3status config file, you'll need to install font-awesome fonts (4.7) - I had issues with version 5, but works well with v4: Below is my config file, which looks like this: Along with the main i3 config file, there is also a config file dmenu (main application launcher in Mi3). Although you can set all these settings using Manjaro i3's bmenu (mod+ctrl+b, and choose 'Hardware and drivers' → 'Configure touchpad'), these settings will not survive a reboot. It would immediately wake after trying to sleep. Even though i3 has a lot of customization power, after sometime I started feeling that all the keyboard shortcuts and workspaces were really unnecessary for my use cases. It's in the AUR so once you've enabled AUR (and installed something like yay) you can do: You can customise the look of alttab by changing the background, foreground and frame colour. Below are the changes needed (note you'll need to replace the original settings below with these ones): On my Mi3 setup, I noticed that QT5 applications like VLC had huge icons and fonts were all messed up. This allows you to remap capslock (for example) to Mode_switch and use it for both: typing umlauts or special characters and having some comfortably reachable key bindings. Manjaro is Arch, so you get all the customizations that Arch allows. There are a very nice selection of themes included with rofi. I couldn't find a setting to disable this. For this I use the very nice alttab. Command line options So can be expressed in a config file like this (New theme format): To get a full list of options for config.rasi file run rofi -dump-config. This edition is supported by the Manjaro ARM team and comes with the i3 tiling window manager. These are my setup notes for a work environment that’s suitable for my day-to-day tasks. added resizing windows without needing resize mode and disabled resizing mode. Ubuntu, on the other hand, is different. One of my (nicer) machines (Razer Blade 15) wouldn't sleep, or at least stay asleep (kind of like my kids...). To get i3 to successfully unlock your keyring on login, you'll need to use the method outlined here. You can tweak the window manager, the panel and customize … These are: You'll need to have the i3-layout-manager script in your system path for the i3.conf  shortcuts to work and load on startup. I find having set/defined layouts really eases managing complex window setups. Consider installing one of the following packages from the AUR: 1. dmenu2AUR: dmenu fork with many useful patches applied and additional capabilities added including dimming, specifying a custom opacity, and underlining. If it is running (and already on the scratchpad) pressing the shortcut will show/hide said application. The i3 scratchpad is great holding area for application windows that you might want to keep hide from all workspaces until you need them. Using window transparencies effectively can make a big difference to the overall use and focus in managing lots of windows, especially when you might have a few sticky windows as well. I often use the scratchpad for applications like my email client (which I don't want to see until an email arrives etc.) Behold: The two bindsyms will combine in a split container with the right adjacent window ($mod+x) or with the adjacent window on the left ($mod+Shift+x). See below for screenshot of my current conky setup: My main i3 config file (see preceding section) expects these conky config files to be in ~/.config (you can place them anywhere really, you'll just need to update your i3 config file to point to them). Layout with four root child containers (screen partitioned into four quarters) with each root child container set to be a tabbed container. I would like to use Caps Lock as my mod key. I usually also make modifications to the i3 status bar colours for the system stats. Having said that, on my Metabox P650RS-G the synaptics driver just feels better (the libinput drivers feel a bit "floaty", and not as responsive - I've yet to play around with it's config to improve the feel). That is, they almost become so convoluted that it's easy to get lost. As the Manjaro ARM community already provided an i3 image for the Pinebook Pro I surely looked into this option first by putting it onto a microSD card. setup a live system This article has been updated to reflect this. Put these together (i3 + Manjaro) and you get Manjaro i3 (Community Edition): a very nice distro with a well implemented i3wm environment (by default). More specifically, I have two "stacking" layouts (horizontally) side-by-side, like so: That is, I have a "master" stacking layout on the left and use a "stack" stacking (or splitv) layout on the right. You can override this behaviour  by set setting the --force-device-scale-factor flag. Now, let's setup default dim settings. Tiling window managers do have a fairly steep learning curve, but dang, in terms of efficiency and managing many windows and tasks at once, you just can't beat a tiling window manager (for me anyway). You can clone the git repo (or even just download the script) and copy (or create a symbolic link) in your system path (I'd suggest /usr/local/bin), like below. and want to just get back to something simple(r) - which can be surprisingly tedious. Often I am working with many windows in some complicated setup (with child window containers of window containers etc.) The ANTIDIM_FLAG@:8c rules above (in the focus-exclude array is an example of this). We'll also cover how modify dimming on a per window basis via a keyboard shortcuts (occasionally want to disable the default dimming on a window by window basis). use a virtual machine, User specific i3 status bar config is configured int he ~/.i3status.conf file. Add the following to your ~/.i3/config: I also like to add a bit of transparency to my alttab. However, there are still things you can do to make your user even better. Just download the *.torrent file and open it with a torrent program like qBittorrent. It is still under development, but an initial testing release is already available. In my ~/.i3/config I've added. On i3... not so much. On my home machines I'm under no such restrictions (and just run straight Linux environments). I made a few subtle changes to this theme (only changed colours to match what I like). or for an on-demand terminal (not really a drop-down terminal but similar use case), or for an application that I regularly want to (quickly) popup, retrieve information and then have it get out of the way just as quickly (like a password manager for example). I wanted a very lightweight system and went about testing a ton of variants (Manjaro, Debian, Ubuntu, Sparky, MX Linux, Antix, Arch, Anarchy, Antergos, Archlabs, Bunsen Labs, and many more). By defining the following config variable: and appending to our special window combiner bindsyms (see sections above), like this: Will cause the container title (created by $mod+x etc.) However, you can easily customize Xfce to look modern and beautiful without reaching the limit where a Unity/GNOME session eats up system resources. Our aim is to create a light linux distribution, which is simple, up-to-date, fast and user friendly and which follows the K.I.S.S principle. by editing ~/.config/picom.conf, there's no functionality to increase or decrease transparencies 'on the fly' and for specific windows only. What do you think? Manjaro is a GNU/Linux distribution based on Arch.

The below is a guide mostly just for me and covers some setup notes for my Manjaro i3 systems. Learn how to create a bootable USB-Stick and use a virtual machine, setup a live system and install Manjaro.Finally check out our Manual and you are done, Enjoy.. YOU are awesome, Please consider donating and help guarantee the future of this project. Recently I switched to Manjaro + KDE. Although I do like the way i3 approaches window switching - I do miss the speed of alt-tabbing for switching between the last focused application and the current application (and doing so often). These shortcuts will increase or decrease transparency of the currently selected window by +/-25%. 4. conky config files (see following section). Your opacity settings in picom.conf might look something like this: We want to make sure that inactive-opacity is set to 1 (or disabled) and active-opacity is also set to 1. Manjaro ARM with the lightweight tiling window manager I3. I found that much of my time was spend combining two adjacent windows into a single container. Now, I don't have a HiDPI screen (screen resolution is 1920x1080) but still had this issue. I also have similar bindsyms for combining adjacent windows into a tabbed container: I've noticed that when you have a heavy window workload (lots of windows) and you've containerised lots of them - container names kind of... suck. First you'll need to install it with, Once installed, using transset-df is very straightforward, for example, to set transparency to 80%, simply call. are configured in the ~/.dmenurc file. Here is my .dmenurc config file with colours that match my main i3 config: If you use rofi, as I do (see my .i3/config above), you can also change it's theme. You'll see why next. My preference is to disable mouse tapping, use 'natural scrolling' and disable 'horizontal scrolling'. Theme files can be found in usr/share/rofi/themes. I also tested different desktop environments trying to find my right fit (Xfce, LXDE, Mate, LXqt, i3, openbox, fluxbox, jwm, and IceWM). not wakeup automatically). To change the default window transparency used for sticky windows you'll need to modify your picom config (~/.config/picom.conf) and make sure it contains. Log into your account. Manjaro Linux is a Linux Distribution based on Arch Linux. Would still recommend though if you like the idea of predefining i3 layouts. Basic layout with single (root) tab container. As such, I generally use my touchpad. On Arch the Compton composite manager was recently renamed to Picom. I've moved to using more i3 native approaches. If you don't have this installed, do: To activate it from i3wm, add this line to your i3 config: On one my laptops (Thinkpad e480) there was noticable screen tearing with picom enabled. your password If you use libinput To make these settings permanent, you can either add them to your.i3/config file, or set the options in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/30-touchpad.conf. This requires the picom package to be installed (and active). I did try to get used to two different configs (one at work and one at home) but my muscle memory didn't like that so I settled on the current config which I'm now used to. See Enable periodic TRIM - including on a LUKS partition. I've also riced my Conky setup somewhat. Create (or edit) the file ~/.config/chromium-flags.conf and add the following (with your preferred scaling factor): If you use Chrome credit (or edit) ~/config.chrome-flags.conf instead. current network rate (download / upload); public ip address information (isp, city, country); currently connected network (wifi ssid and local ip address); move right app window left (which combines into container). Note: for brevity I'm going to refer to my Manjaro i3 system as Mi3 below. You may want/need to change your DPI with i3. I recently found this post on reddit that outlined a few ways to rename containers on the fly. Navigate with mod+z → settings → preferred applications. This page is powered by a knowledgeable community that helps you make an informed decision. Let's first install the driver with pacman, Once pacman installs, you'll need to copy /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/70-synaptics.conf to the /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d. What did work though was modifying the ~/.config/mimeapps.list and replacing the default userapp-Pale Moon.desktop reference with google-chrome.desktop. ~/.config/rofi/config.rasi 3. not external but explicitly defined in my i3 config) which depend on xdotool. The package i3 is provided by the distribution you are using, just use the package manager to install it as shown. I bind it on the power button : bindsym XF86PowerOff exec ~/.i3/i3-exit swap38 ( 2012-11-28 15:16:18 +0000 ) edit The download link for this is dead and I didn't find the script in jonyamo's repositories either. bspwm is a free, lightweight, and open-source Linux tiling manager known for adhering to the Linux philosophy by concentrating on doing one thing and … Manjaro is a rolling release, which means updates are continuous, and users don’t necessarily need to download a new version of Manjaro every time. First, you'll need to install py3status with: Once, installed you'll need to modify your ~/.i3/config file and replace the status_command i3status directive with. They basically check if an application is running, if it's not then start it (where you can then scratchpad it with the normal shortcut: mod+Shift+minus). I've created a simple bindsym shortcut ($mod+Mod1+slash) to change the container title of a single (selected) container back to i3 default (e.g. On many DEs that use gnome-keyring to securely store credentials (like usernames and passwords) they will automatically unlock the the keyring when logging in. Add the following to your i3.conf file (I've found $mod+m works well for me): Quick demo of using the above bindsym to switch windows in master-stack layout: Note I no longer use these. I prefer natural scrolling with the touchpad, so let's modify 70-synaptics.conf to add this (note this is taken direclty from the official arch synaptics page): Note you'll need to reboot or restart X for the changes to take place. fn+f1 etc.) So after deciding to go with a tiling window manager the only question left was using either i3 or Sway. To change the configuration of i3, copy /etc/i3/config to ~/.i3/config (or ~/.config/i3/config if you like the XDG directory scheme) and edit it with a text editor. Now let's backup and then remove the current libinput touchpad conf file (which in my case was 30-touchpad.conf). I wrote several scripts and integrated these directly in my i3.conf. Edit /etc/pam.d/login and add the following two lines: After a restart (or logout/login) your gnome keyring should be unlocked. You can do this by adding a rule for alttab to the opacity-rule array definition as seen in my picom.conf: Resulting alttab settings that match my theme: I prefer visual identification of non-active windows by dimming rather than transparency. to be based on the window title of the application selected at the time of container generation. It looks like this (screenshot running chrome, watching some netflix, and working in urxvt): Note you don't have to be using manjaro-i3 to use this config. Finally check out our Manual and you are done, Enjoy. By default, Manjaro i3 uses a non-active window transparency as a way to help visually identify active/non-active windows. I've also added three layouts (which can be loaded) I use most and have provided bindsyms for each in my i3 config file. Was great but I no longer use it (plus was a bit experimental and had a few issues I ran into). Including: Awesome, bspwm, Budgie, Cinnamon, Deepin, i3, LXDE, LXQt, MATE, and Openbox.
