# Motivation

I enjoy using i3wm, big time. You can switch to different windows/apps conveniently with it. The only problem to me is that it’s not beautiful enough, and it’s ridiculously small in my high-resolution screen. So I decided to change it a little bit.

# Effect

Here is what you would get after applying the method.

# Method

To change the appearance, you only need to modify the config file, usually it’s ~/.config/i3/config. Add the following lines.

Remove those lines.

Then install conky and font-awesome, create a new file ~/.i3/conky/conkyrc, put the following lines in it.

Restart i3, the shortcut of mine is Shift+$mod+r, $mod could either be Alt or Super key.

Note that if spaces are not recognized, install awesome-terminal-fonts and restart.
