After successfully installing Manjaro KDE without any problems, I proceeded to install i3 WM. Again, no problems when switching manually through SDDM, and I've also tweaked some of i3 configurations successfully. However, when I changed the autologin session — through KDE — to i3, now I receive a black screen with no functionality, and a mouse cursor, which features KDE's theme.
I suspected it was a problem with my
.xinitrc, but I'm not sure. My
.xinitrc comes from a previous Arch install from some time ago, which was working. I've also tried to use the
get_session() function in the standard KDE
.xinitrc, but it didn't work either. Here's what I've been using:
#!/bin/sh xset r rate 300 40 xset s off xset -dpms imwheel pacman -Sy & xmodmap ~/.Xmodmap exec i3
How do I even debug this? (I don't think this is a graphics driver problem, since both i3 and KDE were working fine a few steps before this happened...)
