Thanks for the reply.

Your attempt gets rid of the error message and prints "Switched back...", however the switch itself does not happen - the command does not seem to be executed...

    Maybe there is an error? The AnyEvent::i3 documentation mentions that ->command returns a result:

    use Data::Dumper; sub handle { my($data)=@_; if($data->{change} eq "empty") { print "empty workspace!!\n"; my $switched; $switched = $i3->command("workspace 1")->cb(sub { my( $reply ) = @_; print "Switched back to workspace 1\n"; undef $switched; use Data::Dumper; print Dumper $reply; }); } }
      This is what I get:
      empty workspace!! Switched back to workspace 1 $VAR1 = bless( { '_ae_sent' => [ [ { 'success' => bless( do{\(my $o = +1)}, 'JSON::PP::Boolean' ) } ] ] }, 'AnyEvent::CondVar' );
      However no switching occurs. No clue what is going on there...

        So, the i3 API tells you that all is well. This sounds more like a problem with i3 to me. Maybe consider delaying the switching a bit. Set a timer (AnyEvent->timer(after => 3, sub {...}) and trigger the desktop switch from that timed callback instead of triggering it directly.
