Lost polybar after upgrade, and the zshell does not have the pretty icon anymore, :-(


#1

After the upgrade today (returning from the break),

  1. I lost the pretty appearance of the Zshell (I can live with that), but more annoyingly
  2. I lost the polybar. Searched through the forum and the announcements and change logs, system is updated ("starting full system upgrade " >> “there is nothing to do”).
    Read almost all the forum posts on the topic, nothing seems to work for me. I have not downgraded the archlabs-pipemenu, and a reinstallation of archlabs is out of question for me as I have been using it almost as a main production machine for months now and need to work on critical papers and analyses.
    Would be good to have the polybar.

Hi @arinbasu, Have you tried this from last announcement? Some packages were in conflict


#3

Are any error messages returned if you try to start polybar from a terminal?

In respect of zsh, what exactly do you mean by “lost the pretty appearance”?


#4

Install the following package and it should fix the polybar issue

pacman -S archlabs-scripts

If you get conflicts with existing files you can remove them.

Afterwards to launch the bar you can log out, reboot, or run the startup script

al-polybar-session

You’ll have to give more info regarding the shell issue for me to be any help.

Thanks a million again, for your responses.
Everything works again!
:-), as for the zshell, with archlabs-script in place, al-info works as expected with the “pretty asciiart” and all the information I grew used to while using z shell.
Must say this is the great thing about archlabs linux, a superb community!
