Default i3 window manager issue

Hello,

in my recently installed OpenBSD current, I have the following issue with i3 window manager: in my status bar appears the message "Error: status_command process exited unexpectedly (exit1)" instead of my clock and date, Ip address etc as usual. See the screenshot I just took:

As I use i3 as my default wm, I'd like to find a solution, any idea?

Thanks!

The status bar in i3wm is provided through i3status(1). Look to your i3status configuration file. To find the root cause, disable provisioned features one at a time to discover the module which is failing.

I found out the solution; the configuration file .i3status.conf was missing. I just copied the one there is in /usr/local/share/examples/i3status/ in my home directory, that simple.

Thanks for the answer
