I wouldn’t be, polybar has been a PITA to configure across various WM, and helping users that have no interest in reading their wiki (which is really quite good) change things. Not to mention it constantly needing to be rebuilt because jsoncpp got a minor version bump. Things have been much better (for me) since dropping it.
Hi everyone in old distro archlabs I still have
Not to remove archlabs-polybar
I used this approach, I don’t know if it is very orthodox I went to:
/ usr / lib and I saved this libjsoncpp.so.21 file to my home
I have updated jsoncpp.
Then I copied the libjsoncpp.so.21 file to / usr / lib and everything works.
what do you say is a bad idea ?!
I was mainly speaking as the person doing 90% of the AL configs but to answer your question, no not for a couple years now, not that I think bars are pointless or wasteful but in my case I found I was less distracted and less things to configure. It really depends on your use case, preferences, and how well it integrates with the WM.
For the record I do still think polybar is one of the better bars for tiling window managers, it’s just geared towards intermediate-advanced users and not really suitable for AL’s use case.
