    The ah-xmobar built by NixOS doesn't display. I'm now reasonably convinced that the xmobar library provided by nixpkgs was not compiled with the necessary flags to support my config. Reason being that: - Compiled ah-xmobar using NixOS pre-compiled xmobar library doesn't work with xmobar's example hs config. - Compiled ah-xmobar using NixOS pre-compiled xmobar library works with a config that uses commands = [] and template = "%uname%". - Compiled ah-xmobar using custom compiled xmobar library with the +all_extensions flag works for any configuration.

    You need to add a cabal.project file. You can see an example in my repository:

    I've been trying to setup xmobar for a day with no luck so far. Would you mind taking a look at this cabal project setup in my dotfiles? The executable is called ah-xmobar. I'm also installing the regular xmobar from nixpkgs so I can run it for reference here. Running xmobar on the cmdline works. Running ah-xmobar doesn't. There are no errors, it simply doesn't display anything. Also, it doesn't take args. E.g. ah-xmobar -h just hangs. Any ideas? Thanks :)
