Think I have i3 looking acceptable now. Patched i3bar, so it can now use those little icons.

The font is Terminus, the colors started out as euphrasia. Thought of naming it kexuphrasia, but that's terrible. Wallpaper.

My basic setup on a new install. It doesn't look like much, but I haven't uploaded a scrot for ages, so I thought I had better do something.

emacs, weechat, urxvt, htop, tmux, elinks.

Now onwards to make it look better (and tinker more with dwm as well)

^ Nice to see a desktop so I visualize what you're working on :) Very nice! 196Mb memory usage? Not bad indeed...

The spin is 64bit, so I suspect that adds a bit to the RAM usage, but 200MB is decent. I don't like to be wasteful :) I'll do another scrot when I can be arsed to make it a bit prettier.

Mostly the way I want it. Gave up on making i3bar do what I wanted to, so I let conky take over. For the most part it doesn't suck.

cool man. Conky as a one liner is good. i3bar is not very good.

^^ i3bar, it's a bit annoying, I don't want it to do much, so I'm happy.
It always confuses the hell out of me which config deals with which bit and how. There's a bit in the main config, a bit in another file, then I have a script which does something more, which is linked somewhere.

need to draw a picture.

So you ended up with conky too? It seems to be the sanest approach.

^ me? No I've got this:

Code: Select all

+--------------+   +----------------+
|              |   |                |
|  .i3/config  +----> ~/bin/bar.sh  |
|              |   |                |
+--------------+   +-------^--------+
                           |         
                           |         
                           |         
+----------------+ +-------+--------+
|                | |                |
|  .i3status.conf| |   ~/bin/bat.sh |
|                | |                |
+----------------+ +----------------+
arrows denote which box called the script. which makes sense to me.
Not sure if helped much :)
Might have a look at conky :)

ha! been struggling with getting i3bar to look nice. dislike the fact that it answers to global settings about fontsize etc, while i'd like my statusbar fonts to be smaller.
so will probably look into just making a conky oneliner or something again. first got a fuckton of other issues to fix anyway :)

Sorry, that was meant for Slartie.

This is why I use conky though, you only have to set up that stuff on your pic once, and then you just edit the .conkyrc. Here's the relevant part from mine (i3bar is patched, so I can use the icons):

Code: Select all

TEXT

# JSON for i3bar

#music
 [{	 "full_text" : "${if_running mpd}", "color" : "\#CFCFD9" },
 {"name": "cpu", "icon":"/home/noel/Pictures/dzen-icons/note.xbm","icon_color":"\#93C724", \
 "full_text" : "${exec mpc current}$endif" , "color" : "\#CFCFD9" },

#vol
  {"name": "cpu", "icon":"/home/noel/Pictures/dzen-icons/spkr_01.xbm","icon_color":"\#F04758", \
  "full_text" : "${exec amixer sget Master | grep -e 'Front Left:' | sed 's/[^\[]*\[\([0-9]\{1,3\}%\).*\(on\|off\).*/\2 \1/' | sed 's/off/Muted/' | sed 's/on //'}" , "color" :"\#CFCFD9" },

#bat
  {"name": "cpu", "icon":"/home/noel/Pictures/dzen-icons/bat_full_02.xbm","icon_color":"\#DDB62B", \
  "full_text" : "${battery}" , "color" :"\#CFCFD9" }, 

#cpu
  {"name": "cpu", "icon":"/home/noel/Pictures/dzen-icons/cpu.xbm","icon_color":"\#45A3E6", \
  "full_text" : "${cpu}%" , "color" :"\#CFCFD9" },

#mem
  {"name": "ram", "icon":"/home/noel/Pictures/dzen-icons/mem.xbm","icon_color":"\#C953EF", \
  "full_text" : "${mem}" , "color" :"\#CFCFD9" },

#time
  {"name": "time", "icon":"/home/noel/Pictures/dzen-icons/clock.xbm","icon_color":"\#60C6C8", \
  "color": "\#CFCFD9","full_text": "${time %H:%M}","separator": false}],

@dkeg - yeah, I messed around with a few things and finally settled for conky. It's Kex I can blame for that :)

@stark - I know. I still have your dwm source to play with as well.

@kexolino - yeah, I was losing my marbles over making i3bar do something useful without too much hassle. Icons are too flashy to me, so I'm sticking with just the text :)

Some more horsing around with bits and pieces. Cleaned up the status bar a bit, removed the i3 title bars.

iceweasel, weechat, emacs (smart-mode-line: dark theme, emacs theme: wombat(modified)), tty-clock, htop, mocp, conky, terminus font, urxvt.

It's a laptop I used for gaming until my much beefier desktop arrived, so it's been granted a new role as a Linux powerhouse.

Working with i3 has never been faster. The Geforce GTX670 makes each tile pop up as if they were shot out with a railgun.

looking real good slartie! The transparency? How is that configured? Two terms have it, two do not.
