IMPORTANT: I am using manjaro architect with bspwm installed afterward, not manjaro bspwm edition.
I am using the default bwpwmrc and sxhkdrc from
/usr/share/doc/bspwm/examples, with only one slight modification: substituting
The problem is that with the default configs, the keybindings just don’t work. Super + Return doesn’t bring up termite, Super + hjkl don’t move around the windows, etc.
However, if I add
termite & to the bspwmrc and then run
pkill -x sxhkd followed by
sxhkd & in termite after the window manager has started, the keybindings work.
Does anyone have any idea why sxhkd works when started from the terminal but not when started from bspwm?
