SOLVED Polybar network showing a slash


Polybar network always just showing as a slash; instead of netwrok symbol when connected to network. is there any likely causes?


You could try killing it and then running it from a terminal to record any error messages:

pkill polybar && polybar &

I don’t actually use polybar so the name of the executable may be different.


running from terminal i don’t get any errors thrown, oddly.


I recall having the same issue several months ago and I’m trying to remember how I rectified it.

Anyone have some ideas here?


Have you activated your connection in nmtui? Are you on wireless or ethernet?

pacman -S iputils --noconfirm
