    If you do that, also read this

    I use gucharmap for looking at font characters and you can also copy them directly from there.

  • | Is there a module to display an audio visualizer like cava on polybar?
    reddit.com/r/unixporn | 2021-01-15
    It's not actually the renderer, the script module corrupts the string it reads from the script when it updates too fast because the script module is writing the string at the same time polybar is reading it. See this issue where we talk about exactly this.

  • How do I toggle client visibility with a keyboard shortcut?
    reddit.com/r/awesomewm | 2021-01-11
    You want polybar to set struts. That should "reserve" some space at the edge of the screen so that AwesomeWM does not put clients there. I don't know polybar, but apparently you need the global/wm margin-top setting: https://github.com/polybar/polybar/blob/fd556525a892d62d8a35595e0fb5cb648253d31c/src/components/bar.cpp#L184
  • How do I make polybar unfocussable in awesome? Or at least make it so that it doesn't have a window border?

  • How to switch my polybar config to this one??
    reddit.com/r/Polybar | 2021-01-10
    You will have to go through the new config and tweak/edit it to fit your system. I suggest you go through: https://github.com/polybar/polybar/wiki/Configuration and setup your own bar first - once you know how polybar works, changing bars is easy.
  • How to uninstall polybar so I can do a clean install without messing it up this time. Thanks in advance
    reddit.com/r/Polybar | 2021-01-10
    If you built it from source and you still have the build directory from when you installed it, you can run make uninstall there.

    Agora iremos trocar a barra do sistema por uma que permite maior personalização. Estavamos usando a i3status, que é a barra padrão do i3. Mas iremos troca-lá pela Polybar.

    Recomendo você buscar modificar cores, módulos, e outras configurações do Polybar, que podem ser encontradas na sua wiki oficial
