-- Install configuration: "RelWithDebInfo"

I think it would be much better to pass -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release for the CMake configuration.

recent 1.8.4 update to jsoncpp broke polybar. fix was to simply rebuild it.

After reinstalling Polybar. It build correctly with the updated jsoncpp

Can confirm about the jsoncpp issue. I hadn't upgraded system packages in a while, and build polybar before upgrading. Just had to build it again after the upgrade.

@bokal Are you actually running the binary you newly compiled against jsoncpp-1.8.3? The error message you get suggests the executed polybar binary was built against an older jsoncpp version

Polybar builds fine with jsoncpp-1.8.3, but I would still get this error:

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

Super ugly, but works:

% ln -s /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/
