Fix: wrong colors on Raspberry Pi with i3-wm — 10 July, 2015
I had a Raspberry Pi laying around I today I decided to install Arch Linux on it with a light and simple Window Manager.
I also use i3wm on my laptop so I've used the same config with only small changes, reloaded i3wm and TADA:
- Instead of my "beautiful" gray bar and orange window border I've got a cyan bar, cyan and green window border...
It was an ugly mess, I found it strange because the terminal colors were fine, the same for GUI apps, only i3 had that weird behaviour.
After some research I managed to find a solution, just add this to
framebuffer_depth=32 framebuffer_ignore_alpha=1 framebuffer_swap=1
