  • [Manjaro KDE] [I3WM] Polybar not acting as expected
    1 project | /r/linuxquestions | 18 Aug 2021
    I'm working on ricing my system, and I've gotten to the point where I want a custom bar. I decided on polybar and went to try and configure it. I read through the wiki, and finding the process to be tedious I thought to find some prewritten bars to take inspiration from. I found this one, and as I found it to my liking I figured why not just use the provided dotfiles as they were. I don't have mpd installed, so I removed the module (and the supplementary spotify module), and left the rest (except for a little tweaking the monitor parameter and filenames). After launching, this is what I get. I assume I'm doing something wrong, but I really don't know here. I might have used the wrong files ( I used these) or the repository might be outdated (it *did* say it's mostly for personal use), but I'm not sure.

What are some alternatives?
