@patrick96
@leibniz:matrix.org Yeah, that changed in 3.6.0. polybar-msg can now only send messages to processes running under the same user (more specifically to processes that have the same value for XDG_RUNTIME_DIR). See also here and polybar/polybar#2622
What is your use-case for running polybar-msg as root?
I also noticed that this wasn't actually mentioned in the changelog. Will fix this shortly

patrick96 (Patrick Ziegler), oh..I was beginning to reach to that conclusion.
patrick96 (Patrick Ziegler), I have a dispatcher script for NetworkManager that updates a polybar module everytime network goes up and down
It was pretty handy thing :\
Patrick Ziegler
@patrick96
@leibniz:matrix.org If you run as root you can still get the same behavior by either setting XDG_RUNTIME_DIR to the correct value before running polybar-msg, or using machinectl shell --uid=... to start a full user session as another user to then run polybar-msg.
The main thing this prohibits is that you can't just control polybar processes started by other users (which generally is a security vulnerability)

Hey @patrick96
Do you have an idea to this problem?
I want to add some space/gap on the right side of my bar :)

Right now I only have it on the left side of my bar.
I am using this to offset the bar on the left side:
offset-x = 5
Patrick Ziegler
@patrick96
@viggo1337burner Reduce the width of the bar?

Patrick Ziegler
@patrick96
@ilexite Looks like some of your formatting tags have syntax errors. Polybar should print some error messages to the terminal

I am trying to use noto color emojis, but it doesn't seem to work
⬆️ This is what a speaker with 3 waves should look like (the one on the bottom text area)
⬆️ But this is what is getting shown
My config has the following fonts:
font-0 = JetBrains Mono:style=Regular:size=10
font-1 = Noto Color Emoji:style=Regular:scale=10:antialias=false
Logs:
notice: Loaded font "JetBrains Mono:style=Regular:size=10" (name=JetBrains Mono, offset=0, file=/usr/share/fonts/TTF/JetBrainsMono-Regular.ttf)
notice: Loaded font "Noto Color Emoji:style=Regular:scale=10:antialias=false" (name=Noto Color Emoji, offset=0, file=/usr/share/fonts/noto/NotoColorEmoji.ttf)

@patrick96
@kingdedede203:matrix.org I don't know what website you are using to get the "correct" look of the icon. But the icon you get in your bar is indeed how the emoji provided by "Noto Color Emoji" looks like.

@AlekHed
Hello! How to display flag sequence in polybar. Using font-2 = "Noto Color Emoji:scale=10" I can see simple glyphs but sequences does not work. Btw I can see flag sequences in shell. For example this one 🇺🇸 (https://emojipedia.org/flag-united-states/)
Patrick Ziegler
@patrick96
@AlekHed Polybar can't display composite emojis such as flags or skin tone modifiers

hey so, no questions but just a funny story
i updated a bunch of stuff and the xkeyboard module broke, so I went to patch polybar and I wrote the patch and a nice commit message, read CONTRIBUTING.MD then I learned someone already did all of that and it's in the wiki and in the release i'm using :P

okay, PR after all: polybar/polybar#2716
also, polybar literally helps me sleep and shower on time (with the help of a little script) so thank you for writing it :D

Hi everyone
i want to make the linux kernel version appear in polybar

how I do it?

Patrick Ziegler
@patrick96
@mitsukage90:matrix.org If you can write a command that produces that information, you can use the script module to display it

@skr32

Hello,

I created a startup script for my polybar according to the documentation but no matter how I run the script or polybar process I get the process in my task bar (process with X icon). I tried the following commands in my autostart in KDE:

~/.config/polybar/runPolybar.sh

~/.config/polybar/runPolybar.sh &

bash ~/.config/polybar/runPolybar.sh &

r/Polybar - remove polybar process from Task bar
Any idea how I can run polybar without the process in the task bar?

Thanks
