[OPEN] Can't enable indicators in i3blocks

Post by tiny_angel_in_a_jar » Sun Oct 07, 2018 7:11 pm

I'm trying to enable the battery indicator and the WiFi monitor in i3blocks.
Not sure If I'm doing things right, but removing the "#" before the following lines in i3blocks.conf would be enough to make it work:

Code: Select all


Code: Select all

And then just $mod+Shift+r. That doesn't work for these two indicators in particular - I tried and it worked for all the stuff I don't want :)
I've installed acpi and it returns correct info, so as upower -d.
There should be something I miss and hope you guys can help me :idea:

I am going to say a crazy thing.
Try it.

Re-order your modules.

Put the ones you want to see in on other place.

And try again.

This is where you need to get the milk.

The development continues and things may have changed in the meantime.
