I run Linux Manjaro and I really love the way Gnome 3 looks, but I hate having to manually move windows out of the way of each other. I tried
i3 and really liked it, however it looks pretty hideous.
My plan was to replace Gnome 3 window manager (metacity I think) with i3. I have tried a variety of guides and all result in one outcome: i3 starts but there is no sign of Gnome running at all (at least, not visually)
When I try to run
gnome-tweak-tool, I notice the extensions menu is missing and this has been output to console:
WARNING : Shell not installed or running
WARNING : Error detecting shell
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/gtweak/tweaks/tweak_group_shell_extensions.py", line 275, in __init__
raise Exception("Shell not running or DBus service not available")
Exception: Shell not running or DBus service not available
WARNING : Shell not running
If they are important, this is my current configuration:
Name=GNOME with i3
Comment=A GNOME session using i3 as the window manager.
Pardon my ignorance, I am very new to Linux as a whole.
Can someone help me get i3 to run inside of Gnome on Manjaro? (I do select Gnome with i3 at the login screen)
