Polybar install

Please post the output from the command you’re running

i will as soon as i get back…

polybar starts now only it says this

polybar --config=$HOME/.config/polybar/config openbox-bar &
[1] 1083
error: tray: Failed to put tray above 0x2000002 in the stack (XCB_MATCH (8))
warn: Systray selection already managed (window=0x1800011)

and i put al-polybar-session & in autostart but it doesnt start at startup maybe switch it to just polybar?

nope not that either…

please, post the answer this command:
ls -l /.config/polybar/

your bar is called:
polybar-openbox-bar,and the name of your window is missing, here’s how to start hidelt from openbox

sleep 20; hideIt.sh -N '^ polybar-openbox-bar_LVDS1 $' -p 3 -d top -H &

Find the windows name

$ xprop | grep WM_NAME
WM_NAME(STRING) = “Polybar tray window”

ls -l /.config/polybar/
ls: cannot access ‘/.config/polybar/’: No such file or directory
thats weird

WM_NAME(STRING) = “polybar-openbox-bar_HDMI-1”

sleep 20; hideIt.sh -N ‘^ polybar-openbox-bar_LVDS1 $’ -p 3 -d top -H &
[1]+ Exit 127 hideIt.sh -N ‘^ polybar-openbox-bar_HDMI-1’ -p 3 -d top -H
[1] 2858
bash: hideIt.sh: command not found

you don’t have this command, it’s for my retractable polybar.
your start polybar is:
polybar-openbox-bar_HDMI-1

I forgot the home, but you could get there by yourself.
ls -l ~/.config/polybar
edit
however let’s start again:
Post the command requested .config / polybar /.
Come on :
polybar openbox-bar
in a terminal and post what the terminal answers.
Thanks

polybar openbox-bar
error: tray: Failed to put tray above 0x2800002 in the stack (XCB_MATCH (8))
warn: Systray selection already managed (window=0x1800011)

i did add it on autostart but will not launch and im sorry i didnt see the two similar commands

open your config polybar and add in HDMI-1 monitor in the openbox section as well
monitor = HDMI-1
save and repeat in the terminal
polybar openbox-bar
post any errors.
edit
if you don’t start polybar, write in the terminal
polybar and give it a space
with the autocompletion look at what the terminal proposes to you, the name of your polybar bar should also appear

this is what I see with autocomplete, when I give polybar in the terminal, space, and autocompletion.

archlabs% polybar
bspwm-bar    generic-bar  i3-bar       openbox-bar

polybar openbox-bar
error: tray: Failed to put tray above 0x2800002 in the stack (XCB_MATCH (8))
warn: Systray selection already managed (window=0x1800011)

still the same thing and it does launch but the autocompletion doesnt show what u posted

There’s no issue, the warning is just because you can only have one system tray and it’s already in tint2.

To start it what what am are you using?

al-polybar-session

so theres no issue but y wont it start when i edit autostart with al-polybar-session &

i also tried load or start al-polybar-session & but nothing btw i apreciate your help the last days for this
