looking good lrcaballero. Isn't cwm great? Oh, and ha! which one? I'm basically taking a status script and piping through bar.

Code: Select all

yourscript|bar
BAR has options to add color for bg, fg, specify font and justification (left,center,right), specifify the bar geometry, and to be persistant and act as dock (which you need for cwm)

Code: Select all

yourscript|bar -g hxw+x+y -pd -f 'your font' -B bgcolor -F fgcolor
you can configure the colors for various outputs in your script, then only specify geometry and font when you call it.
Your .xinitrc may look like this

Code: Select all

sleep 3s && statsbar|bar -g 1280x24+40+7 -p -f '-artwiz-drift-medium-r-normal--10-100-75-75-n-60-iso8859-1,-misc-stlarch-medium-r-normal--10-100-75-75-c-80-iso10646-1' -F '#FFFFFFFF' -B '#FF000000' &
The second font is for icons

Your script could look something like

Code: Select all

#! /bin/bash
battery () {
  battery code
}
memory () {
  memory code
}
music () {
  music display code
}
time () {
  date
}
while;; do
  echo $battery $memory $music $time
  sleep 1
done
add justify

Code: Select all

  echo $battery $memory %{c}$music %{r}$time
might not be perfect, going adhoc here. Put something together, and share. We can go from there. I could give you what I have; but where's the fun in that?
