To set up your ~/.ratpoisonrc run ./setup.sh Follow the prompts and the file will be created for you. Use the -x or --xinitrc option to have it create your .xinitrc file. If you would like notificationsNotifications can be presented in a couple different ways. If strychnine detects libnotify (via the notify-send command) then it will use it to notify you of things. For this to work you need libnotify and notification-daemon installed. If you have those and aren't getting notifications, try removing any packages that may interfere with it, such as mate-notification-daemon.


Strychnine tries to find applications during set up so it can creat bindings. You should have

  • a web browser
  • a text editor
  • playerctl
  • optionally, a file manager
