It always starts with the installation of Linux Mint 18.1 Cinnamon via usb and updating Linux Mint.
Then you download the scripts of this github and run “” or start them one by one.

Then we get the actual i3 code from this github.

In the video we will download the files/scripts and install i3. The procedure on Linux Mint 18 or Linux Mint 18.1 is exacly the same. However I must point out that all this clicking got me tired. I made a new script “” to start every script you see me click in the tutorial of Linux Mint 18.

During this automated installation procedure (I had some time to spare) I show you how easy it is to download the latest Sardi and Sardi Extra icons.

January 2017 we launched a major update version 9 of Sardi and Sardi Extra.


Plenty of i3 tutorials on Youtube

The fact that these video’s are on Linux Mint 18 is irrelevant. i3wm stands on its own. You can follow these tutorials and be working on Ubuntu, Antergos, Archlinux or any other distro if we are talking about settings of i3.


More information

If this is the first time you come into contact with i3wm then you might need/want more information. There is a lengthy tutorial written about Linux Mint 18 Cinnamon that still applies to Linux Mint 18.1 Cinnamon.

Let me point you this very detailed article.
