Hello everyone,

Originally I thought that my bluetooth was having problems in Cinnamon (original threat: https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-1062926-highlight-.html), but it turns out that when I switch from i3 to cinnamon (or the other way around), bluetooth will not work, unless I reboot. I only use those two environments.

While this is not a huge problem, I'd like to know if anyone has any idea what could be wrong. Could it have something to do with the init script? (I use openrc.)

I only use i3wm.

i3 is bare minimum. It comes with nothing. AS you can see on my example below, I have to force the DE keymap, and even start the screensaver. it comes with nothing.

I assume you have to add some service via exec statement to your i3config, as shown on hte example below. Or use rc-update to add the bluetooth service (whatever that may be in your case)

Code:
roman@ASUS-G75VW ~ $ cat .i3/config
# i3 config file (v4)
#
# Please see http://i3wm.org/docs/userguide.html for a complete reference!

#set the modifier button to the windows button
set $mod Mod4

#set kayboard german layout
exec setxkbmap de
#start the screensaver damon, xscreensaver is the featurerichst one
exec xscreensaver

You may check what is running in cinnamon vs i3wm. BEst you do it without starting anything when you login these desctop environments

Code:
ps -aux

ps - report a snapshot of the current processes.

Just a suggestion. I assume you need that. So you may add this to your i3config file

Quote:

# start gnome-bluetooth
exec gnome-bluetooth

I have sometimes the issue that after starting i3wm my autostarted shell is "dead". MEans no input is accepted in mate-terminal. I assume it is dbus related. I have not yet bothered yet to track it down. Happens randomly since a few months. It is a startup issue. When you kill that process and start it again, it works.

Thanks for your reply, I will try a few things one of these days, and report back here.
