[INFO] i3wm - i3blocks 1.5 fix modules after update

Post by Zver43 » Wed Nov 27, 2019 10:55 am

May be noticed that i3blocks - bar for i3wm aint working any more
meaning that new i3blocks 1.5 installer will flush old scripts folder /usr/lib/i3blocks/

info on developer github > https://github.com/vivien/i3blocks/releases

only way to get it working after 2019 August update
is to install from
AUR " i3blocks-contrib " package
---------
Git Clone URL: https://aur.archlinux.org/i3blocks-contrib.git
Package Base: i3blocks-contrib
---------
this installs back predefined scrips into /usr/lib/i3blocks/ [ block name ]
---
any way this is nice bar but as i understand developers made these changes
because of variety of different distros + different hardware - and they
give freedom to " User " to build your own bar

something like this >
