Reason: Looking at the list of files provided by notion, the /usr/share/xsessions/notion.desktop is provided. The keys mentioned in #Usage look like they have changed (according to the man page and getting started tour) (Discuss in Talk:Notion)
Note: Not to be confused with the note-taking application Notion-app.

Notion is a tiling, tabbed window manager for X.


Install notion.


Run notion with xinit.

With a display manager

To start/select Notion with a display manager, a standard .desktop file can be created in the /usr/share/xsessions/ directory. An example notion.desktop file can be found below:

[Desktop Entry]
Comment=This session logs you into Notion

See the display manager article for more details.


You can view Notion's man page during use with the F1 key and pressing the return key, this will tell you the default key bindings for Notion. You can also access the man page for other programs this way by pressing F1, typing in the program's name and pressing return. Besides the manual there is also a getting started tour available for a quick overview of Notion.


Notion can be configured using Lua. To get started, copy /etc/notion/cfg_notion.lua to ~/.notion. For more information, read Configuring and Extending Notion using Lua.
