Qubes OS rpm for i3 4.12
You'll find the full installation instructions and more information on https://sietse.no/i3-wm-in-qubes-os
To install, follow these steps:
First, clone the repository in a vm (if needed, install git first):
user@vm$ git clone https://github.com/QubesOS/qubes-desktop-linux-i3.git
Then make sure all dependencies are installed:
user@vm$ sudo dnf install -y $(cat build-deps.list)
Build the srpms (this is required to download the source tarball):
user@vm$ make srpms
After that, build the rpm:
user@vm$ make rpms
Then, copy the rpm to your Dom0:
user@Dom0$ qvm-run --pass-io <vmname> 'cat /path/to/rpm/x86_64/i3-4.12-3.f23.x86_64.rpm' > i3-4.12-3.f23.x86_64.rpm
...and the same for the i3-settings-qubes rpm.
And finally install it:
user@Dom0$ sudo yum localinstall i3-4.12-3.f23.x86_64.rpm
NOTE The above command doesn't work if dom0 is fedora 25 (as is the case in 4.0), and the equivalent
sudo qubes-dom0-update won't work on your local rpm as it cannot be verified.
