[SOLVED] new autotiling behaviour in v20.4.11

Post by Cyberdelique »

hi erik,
I'm wondering by witch magic did you achieve to make so that when spawning new windows first two are in horizontal split, then next one in vertical, next one horizontal, etc

previously (and still in arcoD 20.40.11,after installing i3 and skel default settings) it was horizontal mode always and we had to switch manually with super+h.

I'm trying to replicate this behaviour and have compared both arco and arcoD i3.conf but both files are identical, but beahviour is different...

I'm wondering what settings and where it is locataed so that i can configure arcoD the same way arcolinux is now.

thanks in advance for your time.
and thanks for this awsome distro. (arco tweak tool is amazing btw)

edit, I found out. as you have kindly kept the old config in the old folder, you have added in the auto start section a line to start the 'autotiling' app.

Is this an arcolinux exclusive or is it part of i3?
