I'm a big fan of i3-gaps and recently switched over to Manjaro. I was trying to install it over the XFCE desktop environment to replace WM functionality while keeping the rest of XFCE running. I followed the advice fromhttps://archived.forum.manjaro.org/t/how-can-i-install-i3wm-on-top-of-xfce/19638.
This did not work, as it ended up stopping my desktop environment from loading. However, I still was able to access the tty after editing the grub menu. I realized that for some reason
startx was no longer being called at startup, so I added
startx to my
.zshrc, which not only didn't help but also stops me from accessing the tty.
Any and all help is appreciated!
