  1. I'm using notebook (Dell Inspiron)
    My trackpad "touch-clicking" doesn't work. Also my "Fn" key doesn't work too. I use it to set up and down the volume, screen birghtness, keyboard lights etc.

    How can i setup that?

  2. I am playing with this as I am moving to a more command line orientated workflow at the moment and i3wm fits – I had problems with the dmenu short cut because I had moved from another windows manager – it was solved by actually installing dmenu – and it works fine.
