I have installed i3 under MacPorts. Whenever I run
uxterm under X11 it works as expected and I can get vertical and horizontal splits with i3. However, when I try to run
kitty -- also installed under MacPorts, I get a terminal that opens up as if it was a native OSX application, and not one managed by the Xorg Server that MacPorts installed.
Note, MacPorts installs i3 to
/opt/local/bin, and it installs kitty to
/Applications/MacPorts/kitty.app. What are the implications of these two different install paths, and can I get i3 to work with MacPorts kitty?
