How do I create my own keyboard shortcuts?
I installed Keypass and need to create a systemwide hotkey that enables auto-type for passwords in the browser. So I need to create my own shortcuts to do this.Is there a way to do this in the current version of InstantOS?

Full disk encryption
Hey, so since FDE isn't supported by the installer yet, I'd like to ask how to go about it during the install. Can anyone here walk me through the steps? I'd assume creating partitions and use crypt-setup first and then perform the install? How do I go about it exactly

For people with broken vsync
Disable the compositorRun this: picom --vsync --backend glxThere you go, at least it worked for me! You can also add --glx-no-stencil, it seems to make it faster

My experiences and ideas
For me, it's the most promising distro I've seen in a long time. But he's not ready yet, and some of the things he's trying to do are very radical. For example, resize right-click and left-click menus. The reflexes of users like me are not ready for such a revolution at the moment. In addition, some packages that come by default did not make me very happy (neovim), I think that downloading packages without asking the user should be stopped. The amount of ram usage and sizing is really excellent, the GUI produced for HiDPI also made me very happy, but it doesn't resize the fonts. In short, this project made me really happy, I will follow it closely from now on. I'm planning to use it as the main os soon. Thanks for everything team.

very nice os
I just found InstantOS and it is amazing! Blazing fast and looks incredible. One thing I don't understand is the top panel, particularly the right side (system tray area).1) First of all, what is the green 'i' for?2) Is it possible for me to customize the date/time? I like %a %b %e, %H:%M (Thu Oct 4, 22:07)3) What is to the right of the time? I think it is battery, but it doesn't change. I am plugged in at the moment, and my battery is fully charged and it says 'A69%'.Everything else is excellent. I like the video 'tutorials' on your youtube channel and the keybind list. The InstantOS logo on the wallpaper is pretty cool, too!Have a great day and don't stop working on this. It's gonna get bigger! Thanks

Disks not automounting
So it's basically what the title says. I'm having trouble getting USB disks to automount when they are plugged in. I tried installing udiskie and addingudiskie &to my .xinitrc, but it didn't work. I tried the same with devmon and udevil, but to no avail. Is there something about InstantOS that requires an extra step? I've never had this problem with other arch-based systems.Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Some Steam games not launching
So it's basically what the title says. I'm having trouble with some Steam games not launching, specifically the Daniel Mullins games Pony Island and The Hex. Both of them launch into blank screens with no input changing anything. I can replicate this on another laptop running InstantOS, and both games ran fine on vanilla Arch, so it's not a hardware issue. The games were made with Unity, if I recall correctly. I tried reinstalling them, as well as running Steam from a terminal to get more information, but I couldn't see anything useful. I'm stumped. I'm guessing I just need to install some libraries or something for the games, but I have no idea what those might be. Thanks in advance for any advice. I hope you can help me fix this, because I love those games.

Is development still ongoing?
The repos all seem a bit light on commits. Is instantOS dead or is this still in development?

I have some questions about the Terminal.
How can I increase the font size of the terminal in InstantOs? I tried to edit the .Xresources file and it didn't work. Also, how do I do the copy-paste operation in this terminal? I tried many different methods and none of them worked.

Extreme flickering
After installing InstantOS, the whole screen was just flickering like crazy. This does not happen after booting live from the usb. Somebody may have a fix, or experienced something similar? I’m using a Intel Pentium N5000, 8 gig of DDR3 ram. Maybe someone can help!EDIT: grammar

Window Manager
This is an excellent Linux distro and I have tried many: Linux Mint, Ubuntu, Pop_Os. Yes, I tried MX and Manjaro and did not like them. However, instantOS, in my opinion, is superior when it comes to responsiveness. My only concerns are the keyboard shortcuts - there are so many and it is hard to remember them. My suggestions are as follows: 1) often used functionality should be easy to type. For example, pressing Super+Shift is hard. 2) avoid redundant application. I see no advantage in launcher using Super-space vs Super-Ctrl-space and the latter is better and so, why not just use one and have lesser number of keyboard shortcuts to remember. 3) Make modifiers consistent. For example, anything that has to do with window properties such as resizing, closing, zooming, maximizing, moving, is Super-ALT; starting application when using keyboard mapping should start with Super-Ctrl. In this way, it is easier to remember on when to press ALT and when to press Ctrl.If I could write my own window manager, it will use Vim keybinding. Pressing ESC first time goes to active window; pressing it second time places the WM in "Normal" mode. At normal mode, j/k/l/h will allow you to navigate to different opened window. Ctrl-j/k/l/h will allow you to navigate to different tags. G will select the last window opened; gg will select the first window opened; i or a will focus on current window; q will quit current window; / will search windows; Ctrl-/ will search tags; Alt-j/k/l/h will move current window, 'i' will select current window, 'a' will open an new app (as in 'append' window, which happens when you open a new app). I guess only vim users would be interested buy instantWM already have some vim keybindings. Just my 2 cents..
