i3-gnome-flashback LICENSE

Allows you to use i3 in a GNOME-Flashback session. Large parts of this are based on the existing i3-gnome project.

This has been tested working on GNOME version 3.28.


For Arch users see the AUR package for a more easy intallation.

For Ubuntu (tested 18.04), ensure prerequisites are installed:

sudo apt install i3 gnome-flashback build-essential

Then install i3-gnome-flashback:

sudo make install

And to prevent Nautilus from taking over the screen upon login, run this:

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.background show-desktop-icons false

For other distributions, clone this repository and run make install with root priviledges.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
