So I switched to Manjaro on my desktop…

and thought “Ya man, idk that much… kind of a basic user… I should do i3 too”

This will be my story of pain, stupidity, and hopefully triumph. I hope to show that anyone can do this, as I am the lowest common denominator.

Day 1—

Was a big learning curve. I cheated and did the old LARBS script to fancy it up a bit with no effort and make it noob friendly.

Took me most of the rest of the day to figure out how to change the screen orientation… all I had to do was press mod+F3…

Boom, all nice and fancy!

So that was cool, learned a lot about the setup (thats the same on my X131e, so it’ll carry over)
