What is i3wm?

I3 = improved tiling windows manager and this is its base of operations. Follow the link for more information. You will find there a documentation guide every i3 user should read.

Installation of Linux Mint Cinnamon, Mate or Xfce

We start from an up-to-date and clean install of Linux Mint 18.2 Cinnamon, XFCE or MATE as described on http://erikdubois.be.

The installation of Linux Mint is easy and very similar to the old installations.

Installation instructions for the Installation of Linux Mint 18.1 Xfce

When you follow these movies/articles and the installation scripts on github, you will end up with all the needed icons and applications you will see me use in the I3 tutorials.

F A Q


What can you do if the script does not execute?

Since I sometimes forget to make the script executable, I include here what you can do to solve that.

A script can only run when it is marked as an executable.

ls -al

Above code will reveal if a script has an "x". X meaning executable. Google "chmod" and "execute" and you will find more info.

For now if this happens, you should apply this code in the terminal and add the file name.

chmod +x typeyourfilename

Then you can execute it by typing

./typeyourfilename

Or you can follow these steps

But that is the fun in Linux.

You can do whatever Y O U want.
