Nice @Tyr-El , wide !
Plans…Oh yes…Plans have I
Hehe! That’s the spirit!
Are you running an ultrawide or two monitors?
Two 24" monitors. I’ve got one bar on each screen.
Nice! I run 2x 27" with a bar on each. Sometimes I wish I had just got an ultrawide.
Gee I have only a small 17 inch lappy, a little on the small side.
Getting there! You’re on the right track.
So if you like polybar but not polybar’s system tray because it stays above a program that is full-screened, I found a “fix”. Right now I’m using polybar with a tint2 system tray. After tweaking they go together seamlessly. If you have a variable number of items in your tray it might not work that good, however I have the same # 99% of the time. I just need access to them in a tray. I played with trayer and stalonetray but both had issues. Tint2 easily blended into place. Color matching was pretty easy. The time consuming part was tweaking the polybar config:
width = 96%
height = 28
border-size = 0
border-top-size = 1
border-bottom-size = 0
radius = 0
bottom = true
line-size = 2
font-0 = “DejaVu Sans Mono:size=10:weight=bold:antialias=false;2”
offset-x = 79
offset-y = 0
fixed-center = true
The width and offset-x mainly. trial and error.
Good work, have you got a screenshot?
haha i figured that was coming, well I’ll have to install something. is there a program similar to MS snippit?
looks like maybe shutter, I usually strip down linux installs, probably to a fault.
You could use flameshot, teiler or the xfce-screenshooter
ok, xfce4-screenshooter required no additional dependencies.
so I left a little extra room to the left of the polybar clock just in case another item arrives in the system tray. Also per an earlier post I had, you will notice the mpd information is on the right side of polybar. This allows very long song/artist/album names to simply go off the end of the display, and not hide other polybar items I need access to.
I may have a crush on polybar.
That makes two of us.
Looks good. I run two sessions of Polybar, one is dedicated solely to MPD/Music.
