Figure 6.10a: i3 Window Manager on PC-BSD®

i3 provides a panel that on PC-BSD® will contain icons for Bluetooth Manager (if the system has a Bluetooth interface), Update Manager, Network Configuration (if your wireless card is detected), and Life Preserver.

To open an xterm, use Alt+Enter. Windows do not provide minimize/mazimize or close buttons, so type exit when you are finished using an xterm. To leave the window manager and return to the login screen, type killall i3 from within an xterm.

The i3 Users Guide[2] contains the default key bindings and instructions for customizing i3.
