ArchLabs i3 Keybindings? [Solved]


I’m new to ArchLabs.

I started using the openbox default, but I wanted to play around with i3wm. Some of the keybindings aren’t matching up with I was wondering if there was some info on what I am supposed to be aware of?

I found the same thing, they match the Openbox key bindings. Why? I manually created a new i3 config file.

The key bindings are standardized for all the window managers available in the al-hello script. Openbox is the default wm, so it is the baseline.


I guess that makes sense. I should’ve figured that out on my own.


It’s somewhat assumed that this will be the case, for those that don’t I think a quick read through the config should be enough to get started.
