Polybar on i3 instead of i3block -errors

Hi,

I am just playing with the bars on my i3.
Finally I got how to edit i3block but it is still looks older than polybar.

Polybar has some “modern” look.

So I wanted to use polybar instead of blocks.
But but , I got some weird errors.

What I did, cloned polybar setup from bspwm. and added in my i3 config this :

Polybar
exec_always --no-startup-id ~/.config/polybar/launch.sh

As you can see here some errors.

Here is my config of i3 :


# iconic font icon search: https://fontawesome.com/v4.7/cheatsheet/
#
# --> to update this run the following command (will backup existing setup file)
# wget --backups=1 https://raw.githubusercontent.com/endeavouros-team/endeavouros-i3wm-setup/main/.config/i3/config -P ~/.config/i3/
#
# Endeavouros-i3 config file
# Source for complete framework of our i3 config and theming here: https://github.com/endeavouros-team/endeavouros-i3wm-setup
# EndeavourOS wiki holds some Information also: https://discovery.endeavouros.com/window-tiling-managers/i3-wm/
# Please see http://i3wm.org/docs/userguide.html for the official i3 reference!

ok, I need to remove i3 bar like this.

and remove these

better # out

  • look at this in config
wm-restack = bspwm
;wm-restack = i3

EDit … if want bspwm polybar… will need all font that used . info on page you clone from

if me … better start fresh use example on Polybar github . learn more that way

Here’s an issue btw in your i3wm config

Comment out “Polybar”. (the error screenshot you post is telling this :wink: )
So it looks like

I got it…polybar working fine, no errors while removing i3blocks.

And now, biggest problem, how to edit polybar xD

I tried copy paste some of them from reddit, but without success

You can always drop me a message for help with polybar. :wink:
There are no stupid questions :crazy_face:

I suggest copy pasting from polybar wiki when you are starting out

Thanks for your help.
I will try first without you, need to learn, haha.

Last time I broke my system 3 times, don’t know how. But I can always switch back to KDE :stuck_out_tongue:

Need small help :smiley: with polybar

I don’t know why left upper corner doesn’t show anything ( number, symbol etc) for different workspace.
I tried set different options, but without luck.

Btw, how to put menu (Rofi) there also ?

Here is mine config file

Most certainly, you don’t have the right fonts. Terminal output when running polybar will help pin point it. (I described the whole process in your DM :wink: )

sudo pacman otf-font-awesome

For material icons, I don’t have original source, but the ttf file is here : https://www.dropbox.com/s/ol272zhdjait88y/material-design-icons.ttf?dl=0

Other two fonts - you can get it from the github repo. Place these two fonts and material font inside ~/.fonts. Then update font cache.

fc-cache -frv

Reload polybar, and you should get icons.

Hi,

Yes, i followed your instructions and installed all fonts. But I will check double ofc.

Here is from terminal :

[marko@SoSmooth polybar]$ polybar main -c config
notice: Parsing config file: config
notice: pulseaudio: using default sink alsa_output.pci-0000_04_00.6.analog-stereo

notice: Loaded font "SF Pro:size=10" (name=SF Pro, offset=2, file=/home/marko/.local/share/fonts/SF-Pro.ttf)

Seems to be loading right fonts :+1:

I know…but why I don’t have those icons and menu ? :wink:

I am satisfied with the center and right side, but left, nothing.

I tried to change icons, text, numbers etc, but nothing. Still can not get normal icons on workspaces, and menu icon…

Don’t know what I am mising.

The icons on right look normal so I don’t see a reason why they’d be missing on left. Can you see the icons in config file when you open it in a text editor?
