Lemonbar & picom-git

Not sure what has changed my lemonbar + conky is no longer working.
And picom-git which I use for blur have stopped working also.

If I switch to i3 everything is still working just fine with picom-git & py3status

Sorry for the limited information will look into it when I have more time.

This is now fixed looks like you don’t need the -b --experimental-backends part of the command anymore.

All works fine now.
picom --config ~/.config/dk/picom.conf &


Glad that you got it to work on your end @KoO

-b, --deamon can still be used but you’re using & to background it anyway. The --experimental-backends was never “needed” or recommended and the manpage states as much

Use the new, reimplemented version of the backends. The new backends are HIGHLY UNSTABLE at this point, you have been warned. This option is not available in the config file.


Thanks nate for the info old habits die hard.
