Hello,

Is the desktop profile (default/linux/amd64/17.1/desktop) required for xorg + i3 setup? It installs and runs fine with the base profile (default/linux/amd64/17.1).
Are there any USE flags to set for an optimal i3 installation?

With the base profile,
Code:
emerge -pv xorg-server i3
shows a dependency of ~100 packages :D. Is that fine?

Thanks for you help :wink:

You can choice also minimal profile default/linux/amd64/17.1 and add use flags manually for your installation, the differences from 17.1 and 17.1/desktop you can look in
Code:
$ cat /var/db/repos/gentoo/profiles/targets/desktop/{make.defaults,package.use,package.use.force ,package.use.mask}

You can also run emerge -pv i3 command because i3 depend on xorg packages, for more information see https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/I3

I use i3 on a mix of default/linux/amd64/17.1/no-multilib and default/linux/amd64/17.1/systemd profiles (no desktop) without any problems. So I think the default/linux/amd64/17.1 profile is perfectly fine as well.
