When i was young i enjoyed tweaking/ changing/ playing with openbox /pekwm
but back then, gnome 2 and gtk apps and kde3 qt apps were head to head with each other (ok maybe even then qt apps were better but there were amazing artists on deviatart from which i was stealing my beautiful stuff for gtk)
Now I’m old and i don’t have time nor will and i really do think there’s no mach for kde (and qt) in terms of how complete and advanced it is compared to any other DE
Yet those silly ppl at red hat want to dump kde by 2024 (info from slashdot) hahah they lost their mind or they are just insane
Not sure about i3 but don’t give up hope just yet cuz
Despite a common misconception you can use KDE Connect on all desktop environments. Since most of the developers are using Plasma it may occur that a feature is broken or inaccessible on other desktop environments. In this case, please report it as a bug. There are multiple ways to enhance the KDE Connect experience on non-Plasma desktops. If you are a GNOME user you might prefer GSConnect, a GNOME shell extension. For desktops with AppIndicator support (Budgie, Cinnamon, LXDE, Pantheon, Unity) indicator-kdeconnect is available.
So i think there should be possibility, and if not official one, if u are advanced mastah user with p0r uber kung fu skills maybe u can make ur own dirty hack
