Manjaro Bspwm edition Tweaks?
« on: 08. January 2016, 18:40:03 »
Hello,
First,  thanks so much for all the awesome work thay has gone into this spin,  I love it.
I'm sure I'm missing something simple ,  but I can't seem to find any tips on how to change text/icon colors(in terminal, lemon bar,  etc)  to match a new  wallpaper. I imagine changes need to be made in more than 1 place. Is there a basic guide that anyone could point me to?

Edit:   I feel like the changes I want to make require editing some obscure (to a newbie)  configuration files or some such thing, but where are they? Specifically,  I'd like to make text/icon color changes to :
-Lemon Bar
-bash
-SpaceFM folder icons (I think this one may be tweaked through LXAppearance... Will have to try when I get home tonight)

Thanks

The terminal app uses zsh instead of dash. Look at the bottom of $HOME/.zshrc for color options.
For icons, you can use lxappearance or appearance-menu of bmenu.
For lemonpanel/limepanel... I hardcoded the colors. So easiest way to change them is
Code: [Select]
cp /usr/bin/limepanel $HOME/.bin/mylimepanel
chmod +x $HOME/.bin/mylimepanel
And then edit mylimepanel to your liking and change your autostart file to run mylimepanel instead of limepanel. Colors of the conky portion can be edited in $HOME/.config/bspwm/panel/conkyrc.

Thank you very much. You probably just saved me a week of digging around my file system!  :)
