I run Manjaro on XFCE. Now I am trying out i3 and I love it so far. My issue is that resume from suspend in i3 does not prompt a user password.
I know that there are workarounds such as: creating an i3lock.service and also using betterlockscreen.
I also know that you can run i3 along with XFCE, which would solve the problem as I would be greeted
with an XFCE dialogue box to enter the password when resuming from suspend.
However, I would like to keep each environment separately.
Ideally, is there a way in i3 to use the XFCE login box? I am not talking about the login box when
you reboot the computer, or the login box when you logout from a session. I mean the login box that greet you upon resume from suspend/hibernate.
Within the i3 config, there is this line:
exec --no-startup-id xss-lock --transfer-sleep-lock -- i3lock --nofork
I think we need to change the
i3lock in this line. I tried using
lightlocker without any success.
Is this possible in i3? Please let me know your thoughts and thank you !
