Not sure where all the i3 users are...
1. I'm not sure of the official answer needless to say, but there's a few
ways in which it could be done.
a) presumably in dom0 as that's where i3 is
b) depends how you want to run it, systemd unit or profile script?
c) same as b
2. You use demenu to launch apps? It's typically bound to $mod+d by default.
3. By starting an application from dmenu, it will start the vm. Alternatively
you can use the qubes manager to do it with clicking.
4. It went away on first few runs, but it seems to be fine now. Perhaps start a
bug ticket if this is an issue you're having?
5. I can post up my config but it's very stock other than removing anything
using the arrow keys. (vim keybindings are fine thanks)
