In the past (probably 16.04), simply running
gnome-settings-daemon allows gnome settings to work in i3 including hidpi settings, media keys, and touchpad preferences.
In Ubuntu 18.04, there is no
gnome-settings-daemon. This daemon is splitted into several daemons in
/usr/lib/gnome-settings-daemon/ directory. Include
gsd-mouse, etc. However, running these seem to have no effects. I have the lines...
exec --no-startup-id /usr/lib/gnome-settings-daemon/gsd-xsettings exec --no-startup-id /usr/lib/gnome-settings-daemon/gsd-keyboard exec --no-startup-id /usr/lib/gnome-settings-daemon/gsd-mouse exec --no-startup-id /usr/lib/gnome-settings-daemon/gsd-media-keys exec --no-startup-id /usr/lib/gnome-settings-daemon/gsd-sound exec --no-startup-id /usr/lib/gnome-settings-daemon/gsd-backlight-helper
...at the end of my
.config/i3/config. However, none of my gnome setting take effect in my
i3 session. Do I have to run them in a different way?
