Problem with switching to named workspaces in i3 4.2
On my never ending journey to find the optimal tiling WM I am currently fiddling with i3 and til now I like it.
All is working fine, it is very configurable and easy to do that.
The only problem I have is that I can't switch to named workspaces that begin with a number, like described here in the manual.
For example, I want to auto-start Firefox and also want it to launch every time on the workspace named 1: Web, which is easily done with these lines in the configuration file:
I tried all of the following lines in my configuration file, but none worked:
After having an email conversation with the i3 developer (a very friendly person that answered almost immediately), who asked me to check my configuration file for trailing whitespaces on those commands I decided to write a new configuration file from scratch and now it works.
So for future reference, check for trailing whitespaces.
