View Full Version : [other] dwm launcher issues

August 18th, 2010, 01:18 AM
So i get dwm up and running and since then I've been tweaking around with settings and such. Now I have an issue which is that I can't seem to get the time to show up on the top bar?
I dont know what's wrong with it, but here is some info
I have dwm.desktop linked to exec dwm.launcher
and in dwm.launcher i have
while true
echo `date`
sleep 1
done | dwm

now i've tried the other configurations of this which include on the echo line +r +a +d, etc. but point is, none of them will show up.

qedprigmosynois, I don't think most Ubuntu users would know anything about "keyboard-driven desktop environments," (I had to look it up to even find out this much.) Try http://dwm.suckless.org/ Under the Links section of the page is a mailing list address and an IRC channel where you can talk directly with the developers. You're obviously no novice if you got as far as getting DWM up and running, so they shouldn't blow you off. Good luck.
