So, hier mal meine Config für i3wm

{% highlight cpp %}

This file has been auto-generated by i3-config-wizard(1).

It will not be overwritten, so edit it as you like.

Should you change your keyboard layout somewhen, delete

this file and re-run i3-config-wizard(1).

i3 config file (v4)

set $mod Mod4

Font for window titles. Will also be used by the bar unless a different font

is used in the bar {} block below. ISO 10646 = Unicode

#font -misc-fixed-medium-r-normal–13-120-75-75-C-70-iso10646-1

The font above is very space-efficient, that is, it looks good, sharp and

clear in small sizes. However, if you need a lot of unicode glyphs or

right-to-left text rendering, you should instead use pango for rendering and

chose a FreeType font, such as:

font pango:Meslo LG S Bold 10

Use Mouse+$mod to drag floating windows to their wanted position

floating_modifier $mod

start a terminal

bindsym $mod+Return exec roxterm

kill focused window

bindsym $mod+Shift+q kill

start dmenu (a program launcher)

bindsym $mod+d exec dmenu_run

There also is the (new) i3-dmenu-desktop which only displays applications

shipping a .desktop file. It is a wrapper around dmenu, so you need that

installed.

bindsym $mod+d exec –no-startup-id i3-dmenu-desktop

change focus

bindsym $mod+h focus left bindsym $mod+j focus down bindsym $mod+k focus up bindsym $mod+l focus right

alternatively, you can use the cursor keys:

bindsym $mod+Left focus left bindsym $mod+Down focus down bindsym $mod+Up focus up bindsym $mod+Right focus right

move focused window

bindsym $mod+Shift+h move left bindsym $mod+Shift+j move down bindsym $mod+Shift+k move up bindsym $mod+Shift+l move right

alternatively, you can use the cursor keys:

bindsym $mod+Shift+Left move left bindsym $mod+Shift+Down move down bindsym $mod+Shift+Up move up bindsym $mod+Shift+Right move right

split in horizontal orientation

bindsym $mod+g split h

split in vertical orientation

bindsym $mod+v split v

enter fullscreen mode for the focused container

bindsym $mod+f fullscreen

change container layout (stacked, tabbed, toggle split)

bindsym $mod+s layout stacking bindsym $mod+w layout tabbed bindsym $mod+e layout toggle split

toggle tiling / floating

bindsym $mod+Shift+space floating toggle

change focus between tiling / floating windows

bindsym $mod+space focus mode_toggle

focus the parent container

bindsym $mod+a focus parent

focus the child container

#bindsym $mod+d focus child

switch to workspace

bindsym $mod+1 workspace 1: term bindsym $mod+2 workspace 2: dev bindsym $mod+3 workspace 3: www bindsym $mod+4 workspace 4: social bindsym $mod+5 workspace 5: pdfs bindsym $mod+6 workspace 6: mail bindsym $mod+7 workspace 7 bindsym $mod+8 workspace 8 bindsym $mod+9 workspace 9 bindsym $mod+0 workspace 10

move focused container to workspace

bindsym $mod+Shift+1 move container to workspace 1: term bindsym $mod+Shift+2 move container to workspace 2: dev bindsym $mod+Shift+3 move container to workspace 3: www bindsym $mod+Shift+4 move container to workspace 4: social bindsym $mod+Shift+5 move container to workspace 5: pdfs bindsym $mod+Shift+6 move container to workspace 6: mail bindsym $mod+Shift+7 move container to workspace 7 bindsym $mod+Shift+8 move container to workspace 8 bindsym $mod+Shift+9 move container to workspace 9 bindsym $mod+Shift+0 move container to workspace 10

reload the configuration file

bindsym $mod+Shift+c reload

restart i3 inplace (preserves your layout/session, can be used to upgrade i3)

bindsym $mod+Shift+r restart

exit i3 (logs you out of your X session)

bindsym $mod+Shift+e exec “i3-nagbar -t warning -m ‘You pressed the exit shortcut. Do you really want to exit i3? This will end your X session.’ -b ‘Yes, exit i3’ ‘i3-msg exit’”

resize window (you can also use the mouse for that)

mode “resize” { # These bindings trigger as soon as you enter the resize mode

    # Pressing left will shrink the window’s width.
    # Pressing right will grow the window’s width.
    # Pressing up will shrink the window’s height.
    # Pressing down will grow the window’s height.
    bindsym h resize shrink width 10 px or 10 ppt
    bindsym j resize grow height 10 px or 10 ppt
    bindsym k resize shrink height 10 px or 10 ppt
    bindsym l resize grow width 10 px or 10 ppt

    # same bindings, but for the arrow keys
    bindsym Left resize shrink width 10 px or 10 ppt
    bindsym Down resize grow height 10 px or 10 ppt
    bindsym Up resize shrink height 10 px or 10 ppt
    bindsym Right resize grow width 10 px or 10 ppt

    # back to normal: Enter or Escape
    bindsym Return mode "default"
    bindsym Escape mode "default"

}

bindsym $mod+r mode “resize”

Start i3bar to display a workspace bar (plus the system information i3status

finds out, if available)

bar { colors { focused_workspace #008500 #005600 #ffffff }

    output DVI-I-1
    #tray_output primary
    status_command i3status

}

bar { colors { focused_workspace #57C257 #008500 #ffffff } output VGA-0 status_command ~/.i3status.sh }

focus_follows_mouse no workspace_auto_back_and_forth yes

for_window [class=“Pidgin”] floating enable

assign [class=“Thunderbird”] 6: mail assign [class=“Chromium”] 3: www assign [class=“Pidgin”] 4: social assign [class=“Evince”] 5: pdfs assign [class=“Steam”] 9

bindsym $mod+Shift+s exec /home/heinz/.i3/switch.py bindsym $mod+b exec “xset dpms force off” bindsym $mod+x move workspace to output right

My colors

client.focused #008500 #008500 #ffffff #67E667 {% endhighlight %}


Ich habe die Bewegungstasten wie in vim gemapped. Ist einfach angenehmer und weniger verwirrend. Ansonsten eine eher weniger spannende Config.
