+1

anyway, dzen should probably be invoked with '-e -p'
and probably in that order too

Mhh, I don't really understand your question but I noticed that you have an extra space in desktop "One".

# desktop names

Well, my current code outputs like this:

One Two Three                    Tiling mode                                    Time

I want One Two Three to only display one at the time, you get what i mean?

Thanks.

Re: bar - Lightweight xcb-based bar

I have a problem of with I ask for help here.
When using bar, I try to load icons using this method ;

tags=('\ue010 foo')

and by that call on stlarch_icons. However, this does not seem to work. I have of course installed all the neccisery fonts, and recompiled bar. My config.h for bar looks like this:

/* The height of the bar (in pixels) */
#define BAR_HEIGHT  18
/* The width of the bar. Set to -1 to fit screen */
#define BAR_WIDTH   -1
/* Offset from the left. Set to 0 to have no effect */
#define OFFSET 0
/* Choose between an underline or an overline */
#define BAR_UNDERLINE 1
/* The thickness of the underline (in pixels). Set to 0 to disable. */
#define BAR_UNDERLINE_HEIGHT 1
/* Default bar position, overwritten by '-b' switch */
#define BAR_BOTTOM 0
/* The fonts used for the bar, comma separated. Only the first 2 will be used. */
#define BAR_FONT       "-Misc-Stlarch-Medium-R-Normal--10-100-75-75-C-80-ISO10646-1","-*-termsyn-medium-r-*-*-11-*-*-*-*-*-*-*"
/* Color palette */
#define COLOR0  0x151515 /* Background */
#define COLOR1  0xddeedd /* Foreground */
#define COLOR2  0x282830 /* Black'n'Gray */
#define COLOR3  0xcc0f16 /* Red */
#define COLOR4  0x92b03e /* Green */
#define COLOR5  0xdc7802 /* Orange */
#define COLOR6  0x007799 /* Blue */
#define COLOR7  0x7d1b66 /* Magenta */
#define COLOR8  0x426870 /* Cyan */
#define COLOR9  0xeeeeee /* White */

Compiling goes just fine.


What, if anything, am I doing wrong? Thanks!

Do you mean something like this?

If so here is my setup. If you don't use xinerama you will have to change it slightly.

    music_status=$(mpc current)
    [[ -z "$music_status" ]] && music="" || music="\\b7\\f0  \\b0\\f7 $music_status "
    echo "$music\\b7\\f0  \\b0\\f7 $the_date \\b0\f7"
}

while read -t 1 -r wmout || true; do
    if [[ $wmout =~ ^(([[:digit:]]+:)+[[:digit:]]+ ?)+$ ]]; then
        read -ra desktops <<< "$wmout"

        for desktop in "${desktops[@]}"; do
            if (( ${desktop%%:*} == 0 )); then
                lmon+=( $desktop )
            elif (( ${desktop%%:*} == 1 )); then
                rmon+=( $desktop )
            fi
        done

        for ldesktop in "${lmon[@]}"; do
            IFS=':' read -r x y d w m c u <<< "$ldesktop"
            ((c)) && label="${tags[$d]}" layout="\\b7\\f0 ${layouts[$m]} \\b0\\f7"

Re: bar - Lightweight xcb-based bar

works in herbstluftwm smile great stuff!

edit: why do you have those variable operators (?= and +=) in the makefile? i wanted to add the project to the AUR but the buildprocess fails because of them. makepkg predefines build variables.

Re: bar - Lightweight xcb-based bar

Actually, I modified the Makefile myself for a custom PKGBUILD. I don't know if I could do a pull request, about ?= and +=, as you said before.

Re: bar - Lightweight xcb-based bar

Forgive me if this is expected behaviour, I don't believe it is.

I have two monitors, VGA1 1440*900 & LVDS1 1366*768.

Currently at the moment I run at the moment.

xrandr  --output LVDS1 --auto --primary --output VGA1 --auto --left-of LVDS1

This means that the screens are not aligned when I move over using my cursor. Is my current arandr setup

However if I use

xrandr --output HDMI1 --off --output LVDS1 --mode 1366x768 --pos 1440x132 --rotate normal --output DP1 --off -    -output VGA1 --mode 1440x900 --pos 0x0 --rotate normal

which sets the screens to be aligned correctly. Bar doesn't show on LVDS1, it seems to think the top of is 132 pixels above the screen resolution. Is the arandr setup

Is there any way around this, as it annoys me that the screens aren't aligned when I move my cursor between them.

Hm, setting either the user-specified or the program-specified position (or both) helps too. This might actually be better than the previous solution.

Re: bar - Lightweight xcb-based bar

Can somebody explain to me why i cant use bar with my script?
Here are my:
- bar config.h: http://ix.io/3mo/c
- sys_monitor_plain.sh: http://ix.io/3mp/sh .

I can see last 3 characters of script output but only at the begining of the bar. I'm not sure what to do. Here is the shot:

I need to see here whole line as displayed in terminal not just the 2 end digits from date yikes)
I start bar like this:

sys_monitor_plain.sh | bar -p

Help?

I think you have to modify your code a bit, it didn't work here either. I was able to make something to work when I changed things like this:

keyboard_indicator() {
if [ ! -z "$(setxkbmap -query | grep "layout" | awk '{print $2}' )" ]
   then
     echo -e "$(setxkbmap -query | grep "layout" | awk '{print $2}' )"
   else
     echo -e "??"
   fi
 }

time_and_date(){
   time_and_date="$(date "+%H:%M %d%m%Y")"
   echo -e "$time_and_date"
 }

to

# keyboard indicator
kbd="$(setxkbmap -query | grep "layout" | awk '{print $2}')" kbdstat="\ue14a"

# date and time
date="$(date +"%R")" dstat="\ue016"
...
...
# and in the end of the script
printf '\\b2\\u2 %s \\br\\ur %s' "$kbdstat" "$kbd" "$dstat" "$date"
printf '\n'

Re: bar - Lightweight xcb-based bar

@Shinryuu
Thank you, i will try it out tonight.

p.s. Actually, your fix makes a lot of sense (as in bash scripting). I will try it out asap.

[Edit]
Nope, i cant do it. It does not make any sense to me to format code like that and it is not really intuitive. Also, i only see last 2 digits of clock whatever i try.

Re: bar - Lightweight xcb-based bar

You don't seem to launch bar anywhere and your script runs just fine and I think you have to use a script to launch monsterwm and bar. Below you can see how I start my window manager.

.xinitrc

...
exec wmrun.sh

wmrun.sh -- remember to replace "statusinfo.sh" with your own script. I have bin in my path so you might need to use full path.

#!/usr/bin/env sh

: "${wm:=monsterwm}"
: "${ff:="/tmp/${wm}.fifo"}"
[ -p "$ff" ] || mkfifo -m 600 "$ff"

# spawn a statusbar
while read -t 60 -r line || true; do
    echo "$line" | grep -qEx "(([[:digit:]]+:){4,6}[[:digit:]]+ ?)+" && prev="$line" || line=
    statusinfo.sh ${line:-$prev}
done < "$ff" | bar &

"$wm" > "$ff"

Re: bar - Lightweight xcb-based bar

while true ; do
    sleep 2; 
    echo -n "\l\f3\u3$(mpc current) \c\f5\u5$(date)" | $HOME/bin/bar-bottom/./bar -p &
done

I have this simple code, which works fine. but bar flickers on each redraw. anything i can do there?
