For problems with conda, simply "conda deactivate", it will install. No need to purge path or remove anaconda.

@dctxmei Thanks. I was hesitant to do this until now because I didn't want to force people to install i3. But I have noticed that i3 is actually a truly optional dependency and only needs to be available at compile time. I have opened a PR to discuss this with my fellow maintainers but I think this should work out fine.

It is recommended to enable all module support directly.

depends=("alsa-lib" "cairo" "curl" "i3-wm" "jsoncpp" "libmpdclient" "libnl" "pulseaudio" "wireless_tools" "xcb-util-cursor" "xcb-util-image" "xcb-util-wm" "xcb-util-xrm")
optdepends=("ttf-unifont: Font used in example config"
            "siji-git: Font used in example config"
            "xorg-fonts-misc: Font used in example config")

@aminvakil It's the first point under Package Etiquette

I know it maybe wrong to ask this here, but I wanted to understand why maintainer uses /usr as -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX instead of /usr/local?

Nice post and you explained in a detailed way. Thanks for sharing this to us. Would you like to know more about online games. Here you will get complete details about the games.

I see. Well, carry on, then.

@Svenstaro Polybar has some packaging issues. It doesn't have any true optional dependencies (except for the fonts). If it is compiled with optional dependencies those "optional" dependencies become hard dependencies because of dynamic linking. We are working on creating sort of a plugin architecture but there is no ETA on that yet. I think packaging would still be possible but you'd have to decide before-hand what the enabled features should be. Also coderobe wanted to move polybar for a long time already but they are waiting for us to introduce the plugin architecture, so maybe discuss it with them first.

Mind me pulling this into [community]?

@kvnbai Yeah, that looks more like a python issue than polybar.

Executing the command gives me this:

Fatal Python error: initfsencoding: Unable to get the locale encoding
LookupError: no codec search functions registered: can't find encoding

Current thread 0x00007f2ec0423680 (most recent call first):
Aborted (core dumped)

I tried reinstalling arch instead. The GNU tools or packages related to python might be corrupted.
