WARNING: Adding an i3 config file in
~/.config/regolith3/i3/configwill essentially override all Regolith configuration including Xresources and looks.
Config partials #
Regolith 2.0 adds support for config partials, as this feature came to
i3 recently in 4.20. This is done by includes. This support for includes enables Regolith 2.0’s use of the package manager to add or remove default configuration partials. By installing and removing packages, i3 configuration can be customized for specific preferences while still allowing to track upstream changes for aspects of the configuration that need not vary.
The root Regolith configuration file at
/etc/regolith/i3/config loads partials like so:
# Include any regolith i3 partials include /usr/share/regolith/i3/config.d/* # Include any user i3 partials include $HOME/.config/regolith2/i3/config.d/*
