[OPEN] time and gaps

Post by ArchLover »

Hi, I've been loving getting back into using i3. I haven't used it in a couple of years. Getting back into the config files I had a couple of questions.
1. How to I change the datetime format on the bar to include the day of the week and switch the clock to 12-hour format? I searched the i3 docs but didn't have any luck. I know it's in the i3status.conf file but I don't know the code.
2. When looking at the main i3 config file I noticed that i3-gaps seems to be much more deeply rooted than the previously distro I used i3 on where I simply had to comment out one line. I noticed in the file Arco generated i3-gaps is mentioned in a few places. Is it possible to easily remove? I considered runing pacman -R i3-gaps but wondered if that would break the environment.

Sorry for the big delayed reply. I did but didn't find anything although it's possible I didn't look hard enough. I'll look harder. I've recently been using the xfce environment a lot but switch back to i3 soon.
