#53 Edit live system wallpaper to include instructions for starting installer + Start Live Installer in Fullscreen
Opened a year ago by sebastiaan76. Modified a year ago

To a new user booting into the live ISO, it's not immediately intuitive to press Mod + Enter and open a terminal to commence installation.

Suggest we edit the wallpaper on the live system with some kind of message/text instructions, so we can include a Welcome message, instructions for how to start the live installer and maybe some common keybindings so a user can start exploring i3.

Once a new user does open a terminal, the default behavior of course is that i3 will split the screen in half, and we now have a terminal + the Anaconda installer all squished up ( depending on resolution ). If the user had also opened other terminals/windows, it means the installer is all squashed, and hard to use.

Suggest adding the following to ~/.config/i3/config on the live system:

for_window [class="Anaconda"] fullscreen enable

This will start the Anaconda Installer in fullscreen no matter how many other windows are open.

The other bonus with having a welcome message/instructions are that instead of opening a terminal, a user could use Mod + D and type liveinst straight from dmenu to start installation.


I can agree to it! I have installed F34 i3 on GNOME Boxes and for a bloody newbie it may be helpful to get some helpful instructions and installation steps like on Fedora Workstation.

I think this should not be added to the wallpaper but instead handled by
the suggested i3 welcome app.
