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:
assign [class = "Firefox"] 1: Web
There is no problem with that. The problem is that I can't switch to workspaces named like that using the keyboard.
I tried all of the following lines in my configuration file, but none worked:
bindsym Mod4+1 workspace 1
bindsym Mod4+1 workspace 1: Web
bindsym Mod4+1 workspace "1: Web"
bindsym Mod4+1 workspace number 1
Has anyone a clue what I am doing wrong? I simply can't figure it out.
