Ack, i3-gnome has worked without GDM until this release. GDM has too many bluetooth related bugs to switch back over. Thanks anyway

@rawkode, this catch my attention:

/etc/lightdm/Xsession: ...

it seems that you don't have GDM installed, that's why you're getting the error, GDM helps to load all the necessary components that i3-gnome will use.

Hi @51v4n,

I reinstalled i3-gnome and now I get:

/etc/lightdm/Xsession: line 76: exec: gnome-session --session=i3-gnome: not found
Gdk-Message: 12:35:53.428: light-locker: Fatal IO error 11 (Resource temporarily unavailable) on X server :0.

@rawkode, Can you give more information about?

Can't reproduce the issue.

Before anything you must have the latest version of GNOME.

Fails to start with error: /bin/sh: /usr/lib/gnome-settings-daemon/gsd-xsettings: No such file or directory

Looks like it should be /usr/lib/gsd-xsettings

Went for a walk, came back, it's fixed. Blessed be, 51v4n <3

Gnome went 3.28, and guess what, i3 with Gnome works no more. Does anybody have a quick fix (pliize) ?

51v4n commented on 2017-10-11 02:12

i think you should add this to your `~/.config/i3/config`:
exec --no-startup-id /usr/lib/gnome-settings-daemon/gsd-xsettings

make sure if you have installed bluez:


and get up and running those units through systemctl:
sudo systemctl enable bluez.service && sudo systemctl start bluez.service

gnome-bluetooth as well:

for appereance make sure to make your customizations under GNOME DE, because it's more about the DE than the Window Manager.

Another Utility to consider it's gtk-chtheme:
