@nicocot best ask the pamac people. But generally removing the build directory pamac used for polybar should force pamac to recompile

nicocot commented on 2019-10-05 14:36

@patrick96 I'm using pamac-manager and I don't know how to recompile with this package manager. I removed and reinstalled the polybar-git package several times with pamac-manager, without success.

patrick96 commented on 2019-10-05 14:30

@nicocot Please only use the symlink method as a last resort when you can't recompile. It could potentially break other programs.

nicocot commented on 2019-10-05 14:29

I fixed the issue with the symlink method: sudo ln -s /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/

No other package has broken so far.

patrick96 commented on 2019-09-19 13:13

@zack6849 neither, recompiling polybar will fix it. See

Latest revision isn't working, I get the following when trying to run it:

polybar: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Is this an issue with your package or upstream?

I had the same issue as @clpwn due to pyenv. Fixed by running "pyenv global system" before building.

Builds fine without i3-wm installed.
