Dmenu not showing

when i press mod+d nothing happens…how to fix dmenu…1st time in a wm

Try to open your /home/USERNAME/i3/config and check if the entry
bindsym $mod+d exec... is available and not commented out.

It is not commented out

start program launcher

bindsym $mod+d exec --no-startup-id dmenu_recency

Is dmenu installed? Is it running? Try to start it with dmenu_run. Good reference is here .

It is installed…dmenu_run shows no locale support…there is a Manjaro page stating exactly this issue…so I have tried that…still not running with mod+d

I am thinking of switching to openbox

No, don’t give up too soon! :exploding_head: There’s a little “Troubleshooting” chapter in the link I gave you. Try it.


Hahaha…ok…I’ll try to resolve this😃

‘sudo locale-gen’

‘sudo localectl set-locale LANG=en_US.UTF-8’


This solved the issue
