Manjaro-i3 17.1.1



Manjaro-i3 17.1.1 is ready for download

The edition has been re-styled with gtk-theme adapta-maia and matching colors using kvantum-manjaro for qt-applications.
Apart from that some little necessary adjustments to the i3 config were made.

Please test and give me your feedback!
Enjoy :slight_smile:

Nur in english?

It detected and installed Nvidia drivers for my 1050. The month and day are still out of order on the status bar :slight_smile: but everything else works like a charm


The date is in European format.
To change it just copy /etc/i3status.conf to ~/.i3status.conf and edit

tztime local {
        format = " %d.%m. %H:%M "


" %m.%d. %H:%M "

How do I change the time from 24-hour format to 12-hour format in i3 status bar

@oberon: congrats on this release. Eddie will enjoy it :wink:


Screen shots look cool, will have to boot this puppy in my VM. Just a few months ago I used VM for the first time and now I’m addicted to it



first of all, thanks for keeping this project running!

After installing the update yesterday, I ran into some issue with the sessionmanager (?). The login screen now looks as follows:

And the color scheme, after login, is gone. Please see here (incl. lxappearance window) :

I found some errors in the .xsession-error file, though I’m not sure what to make of it:

I’d be happy to supply any further needed info to help resolve this issue,



Hi Philip.
The error messages in your pastebin seem to be not related to your theming issue.
To me it looks like your settings are using a theme that is no longer installed. Did you remove anything - like vertex-maia-themes maybe?
Please use lxappearance to check the gtk-theme settings and/or re-apply.
Also launch lightdm-gtk-greeter-settings-pkexec to set/re-set the theme for the greeter.


cp: cannot create regular file '/home/philip/.local/share/icons/default/index.theme': No such file or directory
is not big deal. It has to do with the automatic x-cursor theme setting script. I will fix that properly with the next update.

For now you can get rid of the error by running:
install -D /usr/share/icons/default/index.theme ~/.local/share/icons/default/index.theme

grep: /home/philip/.mozilla/firefox/profiles.ini: No such file or directory
Not a problem. Seems you are not using firefox but have ff-theme-util installed.
You can simply remove ff-theme-util.
I can clean that up also in the package in the future.


Looking at the ff-theme-util script again I am a little confused about your error message.
Which browser are you actually using? Neither firefox nor palemoon? Is none of them installed??
Did you install this system from a manjaro-i3 ISO or differently?


Hi oberon,
thank you for helping!

i) the vertex maia themes were gone (I dind’t actively uninstall them). After re-installing them and using lxappearance and the lightdm-gtk-greeter-settings-pkexec things appear fine again (using Vertex-Maia-Dark theme & Vibrancy-Full-Dark-Teal icons in both)

ii) I installed from a manjaro-i3 ISO. But I uninstalled the palemoon browser and use vivaldi from the AUR (firefox is not installed)

iii) after following your advices, the .xsession-error file now looks like this:

btw: what are the default themes and icon-sets in the manjaro i3 installation?



It used to be vertx-maia but with the latest release it is now adapta-maia (Adapta-Nokto-Eta-Maia).
Icons are Vibrancy-Full-Dark-Teal from the vibrancy-colors package.
If you don’t use palemoon and firefox you can just remove ff-theme-util.
You’re welcome :slight_smile:


Everything seems to be more or less going good in this realse except for one thing, for some strange reason colours in the terminal aren’t working correctly, any ideas?

heres how it looks:
mpv tct:


Hm. I have no idea. Never used these tools before.
My guess is it might have to do with the settings in .Xresources, although I didn’t change them since last time I think. Did this work in earlier versions?
Just checked with gnome-terminal, no issue there. So the problem seems to be urxvt specific


Sounds about right, I’ve tried with uxterm and I had no issue, I’ve no idea what the issue
