I have a lock-screen script that I wish to execute upon a key combination such as Ctrl+L, but cannot seem to bind the script to the key combination.
Is such a thing possible? I gave the script a global alias 'lock' which runs fine from the shell.
This is what I have in my config file:
bindsym Ctrl+l exec lock
I refreshed the i3 environment after changing the config file. Is it because it's not running from a terminal?
