Crashes i3-wm when start button is clicked #22
Hello, I am having this weird issue with lxqt-panel in i3 window manager. They work great together otherwise, but as soon as the 'start' button is clicked, i3 crashes. If I tell i3 to restart right away, it's fine, and the start menu even remains open and functions as expected. If I ignore it for a few seconds though, X just locks up and I have to kill it. I've verified this on multiple distros (Debian & Arch)
I have a big weird debug log from i3 that I can attach if needed (it's quite big though and not sure if you need it) In all the time I've used i3, I've never seen anything crash it except for this panel (started having other crashing issue with razor-panel a few months back)
Any idea whats going on? I suspect it's having something to do with a window hint of the start menu that i3 doesn't like.. I do have xfce4-panel working just fine with it's start menu (although if I try to align the xfce panel vertically to the left or right of the screen, the panel crashes.. i3 doesn't like vertical docks and officially says they are not yet supported)
If this is what is going on with the start menu on lxqt-panel, can someone point me in the right direction for where to change the window type of the start menu to attempt to make these things work?
Maybe I'm way off though, are there any i3 users in here? =)
I think you should report this bug to i3 developers instead.

Wow, that was way more informative of a response than I hoped for, thanks! =D
I will definitely file a bug with i3 though
