I'm really interested in this spin. I'm running the standard GNOME desktop
now, but I've been looking to switch to i3 and this spin presents the
perfect opportunity. I looked at the current list of packages to be
included in this spin (
and I have a few questions:
Welcome, and happy to provide something useful.
First, can someone explain what "dex-autostart" and
do? I googled around a bit, but couldn't really figure it out. Why are
these programs included in the default install?
dex-autostart is just something that is used to be able to run .desktop
files. gnome-keyring-pam is used to manage passwords and authentication
keys. Both are needed by any spin.
If I understand correctly, azote and pavucontrol essentially provide
graphical interfaces that replicate the functionality of simpler
command-line programs like feh and alsamixer. Is that correct?
Azote is indeed a front-end to feh and pavucontrol is a front-end to pactl,
that is the pulseaudio software to manage sinks, volume and audio related
Does brightlight work only on laptops, or also on desktops?
It should work on desktops too.
On a separate note, perhaps you guys should consider including redshift (
), which is widely used by

The Fedora i3 Spin is intended to be minimal but functional, that's why
tons of software that can be useful isn't added by default, but we are
talking to include it in the "extended" package group . redshift is in
fedora's repositories, so you can easily install it with dnf.
