Doesn’t play nice with dwm; :crying_cat_face:

I expect so. I know nothing about dwm, so I couldn’t make it compatible. This will come with v1.x.x. :slight_smile:

While testing sgtk-menu on Openbox I realized one more time that the sway nagbar, which I use to confirm actions on exit, looks like shit:

That’s why one more command will be added to the package, to display a GTK-based button bar, similar to oblogout.


Looks good to me !

It took me ages, and I mean: AGES, to make the sgtk-bar command work in the same way on sway, i3 and Openbox. But it finally works. v0.8.0 coming soon.


Looks great @nwg

The #bar name added, in case someone wanted to give buttons a background.

For instance:

#bar {
	background-color: rgba(86, 100, 138, 0.5);
	padding-top: 20px;
	padding-bottom: 20px;
	padding-left: 10px;
	padding-right: 10px
#button:hover {
    background-color: #8399d3
#button:focus {
    background-color: #56648a;
    color: #eee

Top again @nwg
