  • polybar-themes

    A huge collection of polybar themes with different styles, colors and variants.

    Project mention: WiFi and Ethernet disconnecting on Asus X670E-E (AX210 / I225-V) | /r/archcraft | 2023-07-05

    I did try other kernels and what worked with me is to basically create a custom arch install. There seems to be a specific kernel/driver combination that works well with the WiFi/Ethernet drivers on my board and I can't just force some wifi drivers on the current kernel (I think 81.ucode is the latest one for the wifi but its using a version lower than that which I've already tested by force loading). For now I'm very much thankful that you can basically study and copy Archcraft's code/packages/configs (and my backups as well) and set it up on my custom arch install though it did take a few hours but I probably managed to restore 90% of my previous setup as everything is already on github. As a bonus, I did use u/adi1090x polybar-themes as well ( and study to integrate that pywal effect and basically add and integrate that on top of the default themes. But its just too cumbersome to edit one by one rather than having an already available distro so I'm still hoping for a permanent fix if any of you guys have an idea.

  • archcraft

  • polybar-scripts

    This is a community project. We write and collect scripts for polybar!

    Project mention: What's in your crontab? | /r/archlinux | 2023-05-24

    This doesn't directly answer your question, but probably has the pieces here for you to put together. I use this script for polybar using openweather API, there are a couple variations of this script in the repo too if you want more examples. Openweather API seems to work well though, you could probably modify it for you use case.

  • polybar-pulseaudio-control

    A feature-full Polybar module to control PulseAudio

    Project mention: How to install polybar-pulseaudio-control | /r/Fedora | 2022-12-13

    I'm lacking in scripts and bash. So I don't know how to load this bash script: << Download the bash script from this repository, or extract it from the latest release, and put it somewhere in your $PATH. >> I didn't understand what exactly say it. I tried to run pulseaudio-control.bash but I faced << No action specified. Run pulseaudio-control.bash help for more information. >>. I need a more information about this subject. Also can you advise any source about it?

  • rofi-bluetooth

    🔷 A script that generates a rofi menu that uses bluetoothctl to connect to bluetooth devices and display status info.

    Project mention: What bluetooth app do you use to connect to your Bluetooth devices? | /r/archlinux | 2023-03-23
  • i3-volume

    Volume control and volume notifications

    Project mention: Can you recommend me a GUI settings app that would work nicely with i3? | /r/i3wm | 2023-04-23

    For sound, I have bound XF86AudioRaiseVolume, XF86AudioLowerVolume and XF86AudioMute to i3-volume. I’m also using a custom script that listens for volume change events and displays notifications. (i3-volume can do that for you, I don’t remember off the bat why I’m using a custom script.) I also use another custom script that automatically changes the input source to headset mic when I plug in my headset, and back to the built-in laptop mic when I unplug the headset. I start pavucontrol via dmenu if I need finer control.
