I’m using plasma now, and I want to change to i3. I wonder if there is a way to install manjaro i3 iso without broken my current manjaro files and other application’s settings?
It should, in theory not be a problem if you didn’t change something outside your
$HOME directory and you keep it as is. Making backups if neccessary and restoring or only mounting it afterwards, if it’s on a separate drive or partition.
Note: I’ve never done it myself, though. It is only a theory based on the fact that the contents in your
$HOME directory is only modified by you, the system doesn’t touch it.
HI @sbwcwso ,
I do not know either what is your interest about i3 or using it, but I could recommend you to see a video in which you can install it without problems at all. I first tried did the workflow in a virtual machine in which I have installed Manjaro and followed the video to install leftwm successfully. Then I did the same on Manjaro installed in my machine and after two stable updates it still work perfectly well.
You must consider whether you would like to install the i3, as an alternative of the other response to your question.
Hope it help,
Thank you, I will try i3 at my laptop first.
