Tips and Tricks

Configuration of other applications


You probably want to automatically start Astrality on startup. Here is an example for those who use the i3 tiling window manager.

Add the following line to $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/i3/config:

exec --no-startup-id "astrality"


If you are using the compton compositor, and want to use the conky modules included in the example configuration, you should disable any shadows and dims which could be applied to the conky desktop modules. Here is an example compton configuration which you should place at $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/compton/compton.conf:

inactive-dim = 0.1;
shadow = true;
shadow-exclude = [
    "! name~=''",
    "class_g = 'Conky'"
mark-ovredir-focused = true;
