Hi everyone,

I adopted the package for now. Note that I switched to a more up to date repository, which is at least maintained. As Prot mentions, their repo is mostly for personal use though, so please have some respect that it might be fairly static.

That being said, we do plan on incorporating the recent changes and additions upstream at some point.

I know that this repo is archived, but I just used the ucs4 branch to add support for more UTF8 characters to the xft-port branch. This fixes an issue with the Material Design Icons font since they've remapped everything to the unicode private use area. The repo is https://github.com/ronasimi/bar

This builds to armv7h perfectly

@sdvkxcv I don't seem to have the same issue, though you should probably report this to lemonboy or krypt-n.

Here's what I use to launch my bar: https://github.com/stephen304/dotfiles/blob/d32b0034c2149eebb342435192b5295f9dd5e336/.config/bar/panel#L28

lemonbar -g x$PANEL_HEIGHT -f "$FONT_FONT" -f "$ICON_FONT" -F "$COLOR_FOREGROUND" -B "$COLOR_BACKGROUND"

I recently updated lemonbar-xft-git to find that the one of the clickable buttons were no longer visible and the terminal output was "Invalid geometry for the clickable area".
I tracked the lemonbar.c commit history and found that the commit in the 2nd URL below is probably responsible for the error.

https://github.com/krypt-n/bar/commits/xft-port/lemonbar.c
https://github.com/krypt-n/bar/commit/6580e2d4f760fc3b69a03aa3179ce80b2b3d9d55#diff-dc8505b1e0becf0e7f745da64d554c70

Using previous commits doesn't mess things up. I start my bar with the following geometry -

lemonbar -g x$PANEL_HEIGHT

where PANEL_HEIGHT=26

@Krypt0n You're right, these are essentially the same packages. Didn't notice a "lemonbar" on my initial search.
Shall I file a merge or remove request?

Krypt0n commented on 2015-09-03 09:38

Uh, why not use https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/lemonbar-xft-git/ ?

Please note that you need to update your shell-scripts if upgrading from an older (pre-AUR4) version of this package: the binary has been renamed from 'bar-aint-recursive' to 'lemonbar'.

You are correct - a recent commit changed how fonts are loaded in. You can no longer use a comma delimited list. This allows fonts with commas in the names to be used.
Change -f "$FONT_FONT","$ICON_FONT"
to -f "$FONT_FONT" -f "$ICON_FONT"

Am I missing something or does it not display xft fonts the same way as of "2015-06-02 20:05"?
