    I hope folks find some of my bspwm (and hlwm) learnings reasonably helpful. My latest publication/installment is posted on my website; it includes images & dotfile access:

    I haven’t gone to your site yet, but I do appreciate this work. Hopefully I’ll be able to carve out some time to read it and also experiment with your knowledge base. In any case, thanks for your efforts!

    I was able to download a few of your tools. I have not worked with them yet, but hopefully grabbing them will make it easier to get into the WM and experience your work.

    I’ll let you know when I’m able to do so.

    Using your logout.sh script with MX 19 shutdown & reboot work fine, but logout is not working. Looking at the script itself their seems not to be a logout command. ?

    /usr/sbin has both shutdown & reboot but i can’t fine a logout entry anywhere on the system..

    Using Airblader i3 gaps 4.17.1

    #! /bin/bash
    
    action=$(yad --width 300 --entry --title "System Logout" \
        --image=gnome-shutdown \
        --button="Switch User:2" \
        --button="gtk-ok:0" --button="gtk-close:1" \
        --text "Choose action:" \
        --entry-text \
        "Power Off" "Reboot" "Suspend" "Logout")
    ret=$?
    
    [[ $ret -eq 1 ]] && exit 0
    
    if [[ $ret -eq 2 ]]; then
        gdmflexiserver --startnew &
        exit 0
    fi
    
    case $action in
        Power*) cmd="sudo /sbin/poweroff" ;;
        Reboot*) cmd="sudo /sbin/reboot" ;;
        Suspend*) cmd="sudo /bin/sh -c 'echo disk > /sys/power/state'" ;;
        Logout*) 
        case $(wmctrl -m | grep Name) in
            *Openbox) cmd="openbox --exit" ;;
            *bspwm) cmd="bspc quit" ;;
                *Metacity) cmd="gnome-save-session --kill" ;; 
            *) exit 1 ;;
        esac
        ;;
        *) exit 1 ;;    
    esac
    
    eval exec $cmd

    This is now Solved. I completely removed logout from the YAD example script you use as it was not needed by i3 anyway. Logout now works and always did.
    Reboot & shutdown is all that is needed by MX.
