LE: 14th Sept 2022 - Use regolith-linux instead or use Ubuntu and use the default keybindings that support some tilling.

  1. First step, you have to install i3``apt-get install i32. Go to LXpanel menu > Preferences > Default application for LXSession then go to tab Core applications and set to Window Manager: i33. Edit the autostart script by adding --desktop-off in the file ~/.config/lxsession/LXDE/autostart to the pcmanfm command, it should look like this after you edit it: @pcmanfm --desktop --profile LXDE. If the dmenu doesn\'t find your local binaries(the folders you added to the $PATH) you should create a ~/.xsessionrc and export the $PATH env variable there:
# Content of ~/.xsessionrc

export PATH=${PATH}:${HOME}/.local/bin

Note: On archlinux + lxde I added that export in .xinitrc I was having some problems with lxpanel, it was taking too much resources so a I deactivated. I commented the line @lxpanel --profile LXDE from file ~/.config/lxsession/LXDE/autostart. #### Debian + xfce: I followed these steps: bash apt-get install i3 Deactivated xfwm4 and xfdesktop from : \'Session and Startup\' -> \'Session\' tab.. Added i3 in \'Application Autostart\' tab. Removed all keybindings. Reboot.
