    Dmenu or Rofi wont work in Arch VM using virt manager

    Thank you. I have used I3 before as a window manager and you can change the keybinds without rebuilding the package. I sure appreciate the help. Can you also tell me the difference between config.def.h and config.h?

    Dmenu or Rofi wont work in Arch VM using virt manager

    I went into the config.def.h file and changed the keybinds. It made no difference. I rebooted after the change and still no change. I have tried to investigate how to change keybinds in DWM but am not finding much. Can someone tell me what i am doing wrong. I am working inside virt manager.

    Bluetooth Issues with Logitech k375s keyboard

    You mentioned above that you have a ssd drive with multiple distros. Is it possible to partition a single ssd drive and install a few different distros on it. I know a lot of people use virtual box but i am not a huge fan. It seems to be glitchy for me and it doesn’t present the same issues...
