From Fedora Project Wiki

i3wm (i3 for short) is a tiling window manager available under the BSD license.


Assuming you already have a DE:

dnf -y install i3 i3status i3lock dmenu


  • i3: is the main package of the window manager
    • i3bar: a little status bar that can be use with i3. It's optional and you can use any other of your choice.
  • i3status: a little program that prints status of the machine to be shown by i3bar.
  • i3lock: simple tool to lock the screen.
  • dmenu: menu tool to launch desktop applications.
