Hello, fellow FreeBSD'ers. I have installed FreeBSD 13 with# pkg install i3 i3status i3lock dmenu and all works well I startx - I3 asked for config file and all is good but when I reboot and and when I startx again all I get is a blank screen. :-( in order to fix this I removed #rm -r /home/username/.config/i3 then # starx and prompt for recreating config file for the I3 and all is well again but when I reboot again I3 won't work after the startx... what is causing this? am I missing something? I am new to I3. I don't want to remove the /.config/i3 folder every time I reboot my system.


Can someone help me?

Maybe try cp /usr/local/etc/i3/config ~/.config/i3/ and start i3, in order to use the default config file instead of the one generated by the wizard ?

Sir, I thank you... It is working now even after I booted my system. :cool:
