14 How to add another polybar at the bottom in Herbstluftwm

Polybar is part of Herbstluftwm but it can be used on any tiling window manager.

The code is to be uncommented from the file in ~/.config/polybar/launch.sh to get a second polybar.

But when making this video we had not thought about users wanting to have a second polybar so the video includes the search for a solution.

There are two commands you need to investigate

  • herbstclient
  • herbstlufwm

Use help or man or TAB to figure out what to do.

You can always consult the website of Herbstluftwm as well.
