Hey all,<br><br>I just started trying xmonad out, and I really ilke it. I&#39;ve used ratpoison in the past but eventually gave it up. xmonad seems to work better for me so far.<br><br>I realize this is a xmobar question, but I am guessing there are people on this list that uses xmobar also.<br>
<br>I have a .xmobarrc which looks like follows:<br><br>&lt;snip&gt;<br><br clear="all">Config { font = &quot;-*-Fixed-Bold-R-Normal-*-13-*-*-*-*-*-*-*&quot;<br>        , bgColor = &quot;black&quot;<br>        , fgColor = &quot;grey&quot;<br>
        , position = TopW L 100<br>        , lowerOnStart = True<br>        , commands = [ Run Cpu [&quot;-L&quot;,&quot;3&quot;,&quot;-H&quot;,&quot;50&quot;,&quot;--normal&quot;,&quot;green&quot;,&quot;--high&quot;,&quot;red&quot;] 10<br>
                    , Run Memory [&quot;-t&quot;,&quot;Mem: &lt;usedratio&gt;%&quot;] 10<br>                    , Run Swap [] 10<br>                    , Run Date &quot;%a %b %_d %l:%M&quot; &quot;date&quot; 10<br>                    , Run Com &quot;uname&quot; [&quot;-s&quot;,&quot;-r&quot;] &quot;blaj&quot; 36000<br>
                    , Run StdinReader<br>                    ]<br>       , sepChar = &quot;%&quot;<br>       , alignSep = &quot;}{&quot;<br>       , template = &quot;%StdinReader% }{ %blaj%  %cpu% | %memory% * %swap%    &lt;fc=#ee9a00&gt;%date%&lt;/fc&gt;&quot;<br>
       }<br><br>&lt;/snip&gt;<br><br>...and in ~/.xmonad/xmonad.hs I have:<br><br>&lt;snip&gt;<br>...<br>xmproc &lt;- spawnPipe &quot;/usr/bin/xmobar /home/jcx/.xmobarrc&quot;<br>...<br>&lt;/snip&gt;<br><br><br>All I get is &quot;updating...&quot; where %StdinReader% is placed. Is this correct?? Am I missing something?<br>
<br>cheers,<br><br>Jacob.<br><br>
