Change the Default Window Gap
Regolith version 3.0 onward replaces “i3-wm” with “wm” in Xresource keys. The content on this page has been updated for Regolith 3.0+. If you are using an earlier version, use “i3-wm” instead of “wm” in the key names below. For example changes to for Regolith 1.x and 2.x.

Like most configuration in Regolith, the i3-gaps gap size can be tuned via Xresources (See here for all Xresource definitions).

  1. Create or add the following value to your ~/.config/regolith3/Xresources file:
wm.gaps.inner.size: 20

In this example we’re setting the default gap to 20 pixels.

  1. Reload the Xresources configuration:
$ regolith-look refresh
