Customization of bar
Each status indicator on the bar is managed by a file. The filename's sort order maps to the position of the status indicator on the bar. So for example, a file starting with
10_ will come before a file starting with
20_. Within each file contains some information that i3xrocks uses to execute a script that ultimately returns the data you see on the bar. Some of the status indicators have configuration parameters that can be adjusted to your liking. For example, if you would prefer that the battery status changes more readily, the polling interval can be updated. The first thing to do in order to customize the bar is to copy the indicators you wish to see from
~/.config/regolith/i3xrocks/conf.d. Once files have been added into
~/.config/regolith/i3xrocks/conf.d, i3xrocks will ignore the default files in
/etc/regolith/i3xrocks/conf.d. Each file in
~/.config/regolith/i3xrocks/conf.d can be modified as you see fit. To change the order of status indicators on the bar, simply change the name of the files to the sort order you prefer.
Once you've made your changes, refreshing the session should cause the bar to update based on your new configuration.
For example, to change the order of the battery and net traffic blocks on the bar and not display notifications, perform the following steps:
$ ls /etc/regolith/i3xrocks/conf.d 01_setup 30_net-traffic 80_battery 80_rofication 90_time $ mkdir -p ~/.config/regolith/i3xrocks/conf.d $ cd /etc/regolith/i3xrocks/conf.d $ cp 01_setup ~/.config/regolith/i3xrocks/conf.d/01_setup $ cp 80_battery ~/.config/regolith/i3xrocks/conf.d/30_battery $ cp 30_net-traffic ~/.config/regolith/i3xrocks/conf.d/80_net-traffic $ regolith-look refresh
If any block configuration exists in the user directory
~/.config/regolith/i3xrocks/conf.d, then the defaults in
/etc/regolith/i3xrocks/conf.d will be ignored.
See the reference page for configrations for more details about config files in Regolith.
