I'm in love for Sparky i3 <SOLVED>
« on: October 16, 2019, 11:51:03 am »
Hello to you all,
I have installed the latest minimal iso with Openbox and later I installed i3wm from aptus.
this implementation of i3 is fantastic, better than others distros.
I have only few questions:
- how to change the high of i3bar? the temperature icon is cutted .

- how to modify i3conky? I like to modify the x and y asset to fit my netbook screen.

- why there is not a Sparkylinux i3.iso? this can be real minimal and I think many users can come here from others distro

Thanks for all

Hey paolo.

Bar height scales to font size. Edit i3 config file (~/.config/i3/config) and find bar {} section, change font size.

the temperature icon is cutted

Can not reproduce that. Looks fine for me.

You can find i3conky config file at /opt/conky-sparky-i3.conf

1). Lack of manpower.
2) No one asked for it before.

Many thanks, I follow your advice and I solved all
this small problems.
For the "cutted" temperature icon the problem was the size of the fonts and the resolution of my netbook screen (1024 x 600)
The original font size was good, I only commented some lines in the i3bar file (I don't need to much info)
Thanks for all and excuseme for my late reply
