This page is a brainstorming placeholder for the i3 SIG. This includes long-term goals, ideas, or other things we are thinking about as a SIG.


Package Group

One of the first goals for this SIG is to create an official Package Group that is a base installation for an i3wm workstation. Ideas for packages are below.

i3-minimal

These will be the packages that will be installed by sudo dnf install @i3-minimal and it's intended to bring a minimal number of packages to be able to launch i3wm and control/configure the workstation.

i3 (core)

  • i3
  • i3lock
  • i3status
  • dmenu
  • dunst (notifications)
  • lightdm (display manager)
  • Group: @base-x
  • urxvt (virtual terminal)

Networking

  • nmcli
  • Firefox (Web Browser)

Audio

  • pactl
  • alsamixer

Power management

Other

  • GUI theming app
    • lxappareance
  • xbrightlight (brightlight)
  • htop
  • nitrogen (or azote)
  • azote (or nitrogen)
  • Gedit (or mousepad)
  • Mousepad (or Gedit)

i3-extended

These will be the packages that will be installed by sudo dnf install @i3-extended and it's intended to have several extra tools to control and configure the i3wm. These packages aren't essential to run i3wm but they improve the experience of the users.

i3 (core)

Menu
  • rofi
  • morc

Networking

  • network-manager-applet

Audio

  • pavucontrol / pavucontrol-qt
