    As i start try to mix up xfce with i3 as WM i find out this is quiet simple, and seem to be a goooood combination!

    I will show later what i have done here 😉

    This shows a standard xfce installation with antergos-i3-meta installed after first boot and replace the WM with i3… simple by stopping the prestarted once and remove xfce-desktop from autostart … adding i3 to autostart… simple!

  • personal then you must fuse that xfce4-panel and i3 thing panel personal idea 🙂

  • @ringo32 yea it is only a first testing… at the moment everything is kind a doubled, as i have desktop environment alike settings for i3…

    But my main idea is to have the good of both systems… the way i do changing WM is may also not the best, as removing the xfce-desktop is also removing functionality of panel, so ma it will need to change WM in another way or adding panel in another way is better.

    Panel is nice to have a nice menu by hand, and may also to use addons from xfce, for me it is useless, as i mainly need configuration settings from xfce, as for gtk theming, audio, bluetooth, notification popups.
    So that i can add buttons for this inside i3-blocks. like this:
