No, I am assigning chromium to be launched on WORKSPACE 1 !!

Even if I boot directly into i3 in tty1, chromium is not started on workspace 1.

Furthermore, my keyboard is US, not the one I use.
Part of my /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier       "Keyboard0"
    Driver            "kbd"
    Option         "XkbLayout" "ch"
    Option         "XkbModel" "pc104"
    Option         "XkbVariant" "fr"

All my issues seem tied to a xserver  issue in fact.
