Bar* is a lightweight bar program, it is easily configurable with conky. I use it in all of my desktop setups, and it works great!

Here is my current Bar* setup (it is usually at a width of 1600 pixels, but I resized it for demonstration purposes, I have a bit of an OCD problem...):

Now, to run this I just add this to my .xinitrc:
Code:
conky | bar -p &

As you can see, the bar is just a place where conky can output information. Also, if you look on the left side of the bar, you can see a simple little rss output, look in the config below to see how that works.

Here is my .conkyrc:
Code:
background no
out_to_console yes
out_to_x no
update_interval 1.0
total_run_times 0
use_spacer none

TEXT
\f3${mem} \f4of\f3 ${memmax} \c\f7${time %H:%M:%S}\r \f5UnixHub: \f4${rss http://forums.unixhub.net/syndication.php 1 item_titles 1}

Here is my config.h config for the bar itself:
Code:
/* The height of the bar (in pixels) */
#define BAR_HEIGHT  18
/* Choose between an underline or an overline */
#define BAR_UNDERLINE 1
/* The thickness of the underline (in pixels). Set to 0 to disable. */
#define BAR_UNDERLINE_HEIGHT 1
/* Whether to put the bar at the screen bottom or not */
#define BAR_BOTTOM 1
/* The fonts used for the bar, comma separated. Only the first 2 will be used. */
#define BAR_FONT       "-*-terminus-medium-r-normal-*-12-*-*-*-c-*-*-1","fixed"
/* Color palette */
#define COLOR0    0x292929
#define COLOR1  0xBADA55
#define COLOR2    0x101010
#define COLOR3    0xcc6666
#define COLOR4    0xFB7D24
#define COLOR5    0xb3930f
#define COLOR6    0x286f8a
#define COLOR7    0x746d76
#define COLOR8    0x42ab9e
#define COLOR9    0xc0c0c0

Those colors are my .Xdefaults colors.

Now, you've seen my configuration, show me yours!
