Is anyone else experiencing the same issue with i3 window manager on Qubes R4.2 rc2? Also in my tinkering I found that i3-qubes-setting is not packaged for R4.2.
The packaged version in Qubes OS repos do not work for R4.2 rc2. I had to compile i3 using qubes-builder according to this forum post: Has anyone installed i3wm 4.22.
To successfully compile for R4.2 rc2 and above, you would need to use a Fedora qube as your compile environment with SELinux disabled.
Disable SELinux with
sudo setenforce 0 and
sudo setenforce Permissive.
Modify builder.conf in the post to include the option
DIST_DOM0 ?= fc37 before the line that contains
include and change the release version to
4.2. To install the compiled packages in dom0 you need to install
