Few questions:

  • How do I make the bar thinner? and/or can I make it toggle?
    Have tried altering height in config and font in css.

  • [common/ipc-client.c:67] Unable to connect to /run/user/1000/sway-ipc.1000.999.sock am getting this error, may have missed a package or making something executable.

Other than that seems to work OK, considering it is a manual install :smiley:

What Graphics card are you running it on?

Intel built in:

  Device-1: Intel 4th Gen Core Processor Integrated Graphics driver: i915
    v: kernel
  Display: wayland server: X.Org v: with: Xwayland v: 22.1.0
    compositors: 1: Qtile v: 0.20.1.dev81+ge4d0684f 2: Picom v: git-a8445
    driver: X: loaded: modesetting unloaded: fbdev,vesa gpu: i915
    resolution: 1600x900~60Hz
  OpenGL: renderer: Mesa DRI Intel HD Graphics 4600 (HSW GT2)

Working good?

Yes, not bad, but am back in qtile at the moment.

Re. style.css, does changing the font-size value in the section below not affect the dimensions?

/* The whole bar */
#waybar {
    background: transparent;
    color: #bebebe;
    background-color: @base1;
    font-family: UbuntuMono;
    font-size: 14px;

After saving the file, a reload with $mod+Shift+c is required make the changes take effect.

Nope, doesn’t work, one of the widgets is forcing the bar to be 42px. Have found a replacement and am re-configuring it to my needs :smiley:

Will reinstall the configs later, kill the bar and post the errors when I restart it. But will be much later, got stuff on.
