Inside my i3config, I have a bindsym like so:
bindsym $mod+F1 split h; exec pcmanfm; exec pcmanfm; focus parent; split v; exec terminal
I was expecting that if I go to an empty workspace and hit
mod+F1, I should get the following layout (EDIT: cannot post images or links due to low carma):
However I only get a horizontal split of 3 windows, lxterminal beeing on the top.
The same happens if I change the split commands like so:
exec i3-msg layout splith, etc.
Could somebody please explaing what I'm doing wrong and how I should correct it?
