I am trying to run i3-save-tree and it seems that bash cannot find it?

I have no idea how to even start this.

My system is a mid-2010 MacBook Pro running Kali.

Any and all help would be extremely welcome :/

i3-save-tree only exists as of i3 4.8. You can find out which version you are running by running i3 --version. If you find out that you are on an older version you should update if this is possible.

On the off chance that you are running a recent version it is usually possible in your package manager to see what files a given package installed. You would want to locate i3-save-tree and ensure its in a directory that is included in your path.

I tried: apt-get update; apt get upgrade; apt-get dist-upgrade. Nothing updated :/

So what version do you have?

I'm currently on 4.2

I just realised that since i'm using Kali's repos, i3 might not be updated...

Have you considered trying Arch Linux? Their repo has 4.8. But my question is about disappearing text in a urxvtc.
