    I use and love it. It does have it's simplicity as a drawback, eventually. But if you don't like headaches, it's a great tiling manager. Behaves predictably.

      i3-sensible-terminal and i3-sensible-editor are just wrapper scripts: https://build.i3wm.org/docs/i3-sensible-terminal.html https://build.i3wm.org/docs/i3-sensible-editor.html

        Ha. In the meanwhile, sway actually seems very competitive at this point. My biggest annoyance last time was clipboard support, and most of the directions (primary/selection and wayland/x11) seem working!

          My biggest annoyance with Sway was that I could not get dmenu to work, which is pretty much essential for navigating around (yes, I know there are other options, but I'd like to at least have dmenu as a fallback). Not sure if it's been fixed yet, last time I tried was a few months ago with then latest stable release.

            Pretty sure you can use it somehow. FYI: Rofi does now work over XWayland; I use it with -no-window and a floating modifier in my .config/sway/config. It doesn't self centre, but it's workable :-)

              Yeah, Rofi is nice but like I said: I want dmenu as a backup at least. If I don't have it as a backup, then I can't even try using Sway.

                I just tried dmenu, seems to work as-is. You should try it :-)
