Awesome wm is fun if you like lua. But I'm like you I live with kde or xfce built in options.

Hey thank you for this, been using Xubuntu for years and never thought of using its tiling features!

Great tip thanks! I just found out that the Mate desktop can do the same.

I also tile my windows on Xfce to maximize my laptop’s resolution. :) I also remove my window borders for that same reason

If you want to try out i3wm and keep the XFCE environment, you can simply swap out the default window manager(the XFCE one) with i3wm and keep all the other XFCE things. Its what I use right now and its wonderful, best of both worlds!

Thanks! I tried this with Xubuntu 18.04 and it worked for a while, but soon my workspaces began behaving strangely. I followed the feeblenerd guide but some of the PPAs in the guide no longer work. 2 are needed to fix the workspace issue. I'm probably missing a step.
I've seen many i3 XFCE videos, but they all seem to be of the Arch variety. Maybe it's just a weird Xubuntu 18.04 bug? What was your process to get it working?
I'm working on a part 2 to this to demonstrate how users can get rid of title bars and borders with xfwm4 if they aren't ready for a tiling WM. Stay tuned!

I3 also has tabbed and stacking layout which comes very handy at times
