  • Stalonetray dynamically sizing xmobar
    reddit.com/r/xmonad | 2021-10-14
    I followed 4.1.2 Dynamically sizing xmobar in xmobar.org and it works with 1 monitor, but with 2 monitors the tray is in the wrong place
  • How to build an xmobar config from from a haskell source file?
    reddit.com/r/NixOS | 2021-08-31
    I can't build the project. configure: error: X11 libraries not found, so X11 package cannot be built Ok, so I went to xmobar's repo and installed all their stack.yaml dependencies via nix and X11 still fails to build.

    I've always just used the plain textfile option for configuring xmobar. This works out of the box with nixos, but now I want to use a haskell source file like shown here and import arbitrary haskell libraries.

    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.
  • Using trayer with xmobar?
    reddit.com/r/xmonad | 2021-08-31
    https://github.com/jaor/xmobar/blob/master/examples/padding-icon.sh this script generates a transparent xpm icon same width as your tray size. run this as a module in xmobar wherever you want trayer to be and launch trayer to that position. take a look at this https://github.com/Sloopy3333/dotfiles/tree/master/.config/xmonad

    same error: xmobar: /home/janus/.config/xmobar/xmobar.hs: hGetContents: invalid argument (invalid byte sequence) but when I change the arch wiki config file to xmobar.org config file. It works.
