For gnome-settings-daemon 3.24 issue, replace /usr/share/gnome-session/sessions/i3-gnome.session with following should work.

# -*- mode: conf -*-

[GNOME Session]

Mey by just sending the 'Logout' message should be fine

Pinky commented on 2016-11-22 00:36

solved by:

cat /usr/bin/i3-gnome
#!/bin/sh

# Register with gnome-session so that it does not kill the whole session thinking it is dead.
test -n "$DESKTOP_AUTOSTART_ID" && {
dbus-send --print-reply --session --dest=org.gnome.SessionManager "/org/gnome/SessionManager" org.gnome.SessionManager.RegisterClient "string:i3-gnome" "string:$DESKTOP_AUTOSTART_ID"
}

i3

test -n "$DESKTOP_AUTOSTART_ID" && {
dbus-send --print-reply --session --dest=org.gnome.SessionManager "/org/gnome/SessionManager" org.gnome.SessionManager.Logout "uint32:1"
}

Hey Marex, thanks for the package! Do you mind merging upstream/master in your github repo?

MCSH commented on 2016-03-29 19:03

This package requires i3 as dependencies, be sure to install before using or you will face problems.

Tbsc commented on 2016-03-23 18:53

@denspirit: It should, as it runs in i3. I'm guessing he hasn't set up dependencies for it.

This appears to work only halfway--GTK themes seem to be set OK, but then brightness and volume keys don't work as expected. Any ideas about what might be happening here?

denspirit commented on 2015-08-31 20:59

Does this package depend on i3-wm present?
