I have installed i3 on my laptop in MX 17.1 linux and yes all the keys are working.The install was done from Debian buster server. And most of my rice worked on first log on just need to do some minor tweaks.Won't be using i3 on MX anyways.
To me i3 is just better suited the Antix with its minimalistic ways..

:redface: p.s. The comment "it's already there" was referring to session chooser (not i3) Sorry Dolphin
