Community Build Xenial i3 Linux Kernel ver 4.4
#1
/proc/version

Linux version 4.4.77-rockchip-ayufan-118 ([email protected]) (gcc version 5.4.0 20160609 (Ubuntu/Linaro 5.4.0-6ubuntu1~16.04.4) ) #1 SMP Thu Sep 14 21:59:24 UTC 2017

Sort of looks very much like debian but seems to just freeze as a desktop.
Anyone else tried it?

I have. i3's very customizable but I didn't really want to go through the learning curve to get the keys mapped to apps/windows. There is no desktop per se. The videos linked in another thread are very good.
At the base level, it should have asked you to assign a command key, Windows or Ctrl (I think). Once up, that key and Enter brings up the terminal. I'm guessing you already knew that so my apologies if too elementary. Smile
I don't recall having other problems but I didn't spend too much time on it.

Nope never seen I3 before and just clicked on default and was clicking away on everything but the win key probs. Smile
