Today I decided to rebuild my personal workstation again. I’d had Windows 7 installed since November 2011 as I had started playing games like Skyrim, Diablo 3, and Guild Wars 2. I’ve realized that I haven’t really played a game in many months and have no specific need for the Windows OS.
randr is now fully supported within the nvidia binary drivers, so i3 had no trouble recognizing the multiple monitors. Both .i3status.conf and .i3/config were straight-forward to edit to my liking.
So far so good!
