I will break it down simple here to avoid confusion, I only assume you have a functioning clearlinux base install w/ the i3 bundle installed
- Reboot the computer
reboot, this is necessary after installing a new X environment most times and is just a good habbit to get into IMHO.
- Turn the computer on
- At the prompt where it asks for your user name, you type that in and hit
- At the prompt where it asks for your password you should see a little gear icon next to the button
- Click on the gear icon and a dropdown menu should open with some choices [ Gnome, i3, … ]
- Click on i3
- Type in your password and hit
That should bring you up to the initial i3 screen where you create a sample config if you don’t already have one in place.
I mean no offense for the dumb’d down instructions, I just want to be clear :D, if any of these steps didn’t work then we can take it from there.
