Search - "polybar"
Been working on making my Linux installation pretty for the past few days – already posted on r/unixporn but I figured there might be a few people on here who would appreciate it. Link to the post: https://reddit.com/r/unixporn/...13
Customised my Ubuntu VM using
I3wm, polybar, Compton, conky, rofi,
And zsh shell !
The theme is inspired by unixporn subreddit post!
Btw it took 4days completely to do9
Arch that I've had for a month
Applications: Firefox with riot.im chat, custom one-line music menu, vim markdown preview, gotop, vim with .zshrc, vim with README in Markdown, vim with python code
Arch Linux, i3 WM14
love my new baby <3
base set up: antergos/gnome
Additions: i3 gaps/polybar , getting deepin to play with, mpd+ncmpcpp, gonna get cava.
Don't know all of the specs yet,
16 GB ddr3 mem (??rpm)
also worth mentioning that gnome plays well with toutchscreen 😎
this puppy is gonna serve me well8
My Deepin DE on Arch... I am working on i3wm with a polybar or a conky... Will post it if and when its done... Running on a busy schedule nowadays10
I was inspired by ADL to show off my first rice. Need to write some conky scripts to make it a little more interesting on the desktop.
Using i3 as the WM, with more or less vanilla i3status. Thinking of switching over to polybar at some point possibly. I used oomox to make my own theme, so nemo, firefox, and all other system applications are matching. Check her out!7
Okay i3wm users, what do you like to use for the bar manager? I'm trying to decide if I just want to customize the default bar or change it to something like lemonbar to patch the powerline look in my terminal. I don't want something that would be too complex to configure but still be powerful to use. (I've had issues with polybar but it may have been a fuckup from the script I tried to run with it.
Screenshot of my setup WIP.10
tl;dr - i think? i have a short attention span
Just started ricing up i3 yesterday! i'll post screenshots and maybe start a git repo or something for my Arch/other customizations.
Any tips on getting polybar to be transparent? i wanna get your guys's help before i go digging through subredits and StOve 😂
so far i have:
- installed compton and tossed it into i3
- tossed the initial (example) polybar in i3
- tossed in an xrandr script because i needed it
- tossed in a feh to fetch a desktop background (it's pretty, i'll link below)
- I've got it bad guys - i tried to mod+enter to open a terminal...
on my windows computer at work. 😬

Try to finish some of the projects I've started in 2018. Right now I have a todo list text file, along with multiple written lists (the written ones are more focused on a single project normally).
-Finish the startpage I've been doing off and on for at least a month now. I ended up making a lot of it command based (just need to write the scripts for the commands..). I had a little config menu but I just got tired of it and the text box is autofocus anyways, so I figured I'd make it command focused.
-Nice little root safety script as I call it. I've made very stupid mistakes as root before. I once made a typo and ran "chmod --recursive 644 /" while half asleep. I believe I was trying to run that on the current directory I was in, but as you know, the . and / are right next to each other. Basically the script would see what you're doing and echo "you're about to do x, are you sure that's what you want to do?". Something I know I could knock out in a day, but I've been putting it off for at least a year now.
-Compiling notification. I saw something similar once a few years ago, and it was so fucking cool. I remember it being a Mac, and it had a notification that would basically tell you how many files and shit you had left to compile if you were building something. Kinda want to build something for polybar.
-FUCKING RUBBER DUCK DEBUGGING TO THE EXTREME! This one was inspired by a comment someone made once months ago. Might have been here, or reddit, or in real life, not sure. Basically a big ass fucking rubber duck with LEDs in it that will like glow red if your code wouldn't compile (I think Visual Studio has like an automatic error detecting thing in there?? Maybe something similar if I can figure that out). Honestly not sure how the fuck I'd do this one, but I love the idea and I really want to fucking do it
There's more shit. These are just the main ones I want to attempt sometime in the near future.
Accomplishments of today:
- Wrote a small battery level script for my polybar config to print "AC" as battery level if the battery is removed, rather than having it continue to display the level the battery was at when I removed it (how the polybar module does by default)
- Small bluetooth detector script (checks if bluetooth is on or off, and if it's connected to anything)
- Wrote another script to turn my screen's backlight off when the lid closes and back on when it opens again (literally just finished this one maybe 5 minutes ago)
- Finally fixed an issue with the volume level module on my polybar config, where it increments in levels of 5%, but it would always be on like 94 or 89, rather than 95 and 90 (weird to explain)
Pretty accomplished with myself, they were all minor differences that most people wouldn't really think about, but I'm happy about them.
Do you have a favorite status bar app? I have been using polybar since I switched to bspwm in December, and I've been really happy with all the customizations and plugins you can write for it, but I just wonder if anyone has been using any other bars that do something they really love.8
In the past couple weeks I've switched from openbox to bspwm, and I am in love. The tiling is whatever, but I love the granular control bspwm offers for monitors, desktops, and nodes(windows). I love running extremely customizable apps like sxhkd, polybar, and picom to make it my own. Anybody else around here using bspwm?4
That moment when you're away from home and you're performing a fucking system update (upgrade?) on fucking Gentoo and your fucking Chromebook can't fucking connect to your fucking computer at home running fucking Arch to offload fucking compilations over fucking SSH and fucking Polybar tells you that the fucking RAM is almost full and that both of your fucking Broadwell CPUs are fucking 100% on usage and even fucking Vim can't open your fucking work to add the fucking documentation for a fucking assignment from a fucking online course due today and everything's fucking stopped in time but the fucking window manager is still working normally?!!!!2
