I recently found out about ArchLabs so the first thing I did is to download the iso and install it in a virtual machine to check it out. I installed the i3-gaps version and I loved it. So naturally I decided to make the switch to main machine as well. I went through the installation process and selected i3-gaps and couple of other packages like firefox, libre-office, thunar, urxvt, fonts awesome, etc. with the space bar and did the installation. After the first reboot I see the lightDM as it supposed to be but as soon as I login it asks to me make my config file and select my mod button which is the first thing to do in i3wm. This didn’t happen to me when I tried it on VM and now I am typing this post from a non-configured i3wm instead of a configured sleek looking i3-gaps.
Would really appreciate some help regarding this. I installation one more time to make sure i didn’t select anything wrong but I still ended up with i3wm instead of i3-gaps.
