Running i3wm on a Lenovo Thinkpad E570. Everything else typically works just fine. However, pressing the
Fn key instantly kills Firefox (if open), all tray icons, and dunst. Some notes:
- There is nothing in my
.config/i3/configthat relates to XF86WakeUp (which
Fnmaps to, for some reason).
- This problem does not occur when using KDE (i.e. this problem seems related to i3wm, not Xorg/Wayland).
- Once this crash has happened, these apps can be reopened and are then no longer affected.
- I've also had issues with opening some apps such as Dolphin, which shows the following error when opened in a terminal:
"Session bus not found\nTo circumvent this problem try the following command (with Linux and bash)\nexport $(dbus-launch)"
- I can then use
export $(dbus-launch)to run it from the terminal, but it only applies to the terminal session; running this command from dbar also has no effect. Could this be a related problem? This only happens after the crash.
Any insights into strange i3 or dbus behavior?
