I3#i3status
I3#i3blocks
I3#i3lock

There are no USE flags present.

What do you mean by "still relevant" ?

  • the packages are still maintained and usable
  • i3status does actually have a flag
  • shouldn't the package lists have the standard info box for packages even without flags?

i3block and i3lock doesn't have any USE flag, so why is {{USEflag|package=x11-misc/i3lock}} used?

--Kreyren (talk) 15:01, 8 September 2018 (UTC)

I would imagine it is likely that it was easy to copy/paste from another section. Or it might be to maintain consistency. If you know how to get it to link to package listing with a similar style but without the empty box for use flags, then it seems obvious to replace it. Personally I would like to have something in each package section that looks roughly the same just to be consistent, whatever that style choice may be. (i know nearly nothing about doing wiki edits so suggestions highly appreciated)

I did my best, if anyone knows how to improve it feel free to. :D

Change "startx" to "exec startx"

Recently I noticed that when using i3 and i3lock, there is a possible security issue with simply executing "startx" to begin the x session. After locking with i3lock, another person can switch to the tty where X was started, stop X, and have access to the logged in user's account. After digging around, it appears that using "exec startx" will prevent this. If X is terminated for any reason, the user is logged out. This may be a better option for security reasons. I apologize that I cannot explain why as I am not really sure what the difference is. Perfectedinterest (talk) 00:40, 5 February 2019 (UTC)

This is now explained in the article. Thanks for the heads-up!! -- Ris (talk) 19:04, 19 February 2022 (UTC)
