I want to propose a patch which I call removetitle. It removes the title of the currently selected window from the statusbar. This can have the following benefits: - Declutter the statusbar. Useful for people who think that displaying   the title has no value and is rather distracting. - Background-color of the statusbar doesn't change in the middle.   Good for people who think that a continues background-color is more   aesthetic and less distracting. - Simpler code. Your dwm bar is elegant. I've tried to use AwesomeFont as replacements to tags indices but was unable to get a good looking style. I remember I was stuck at centering the glyphs since they are different in size. I also like much your top tag indicator (the small white bar). Would you mind sharing your modifications to get this result? Cheers, I am using the awesome-font icons https://origin.fontawesome.com/cheatsheet This means I simply copy and paste them in my config.h. However, additionally you also need to install an appropriate font on your system. I am using the Ubuntu-Mono Nerd Font. If you are using arch you can install it from the AUR. The package-name is nerd-fonts-ubuntu-mono. But you may want to try other fonts from the nerd-fonts collection https://github.com/ryanoasis/nerd-fonts. Of course you need also to define the font in your dwm-config.h as UbuntuMono Nerd Font. I also had similar issues at the beginning. The glyphs were simply to small. I was able to fix it with the Ubuntu Font. The white tag-indicator can be patched with https://dwm.suckless.org/patches/activetagindicatorbar/. However, the patch for dwm-6.1 will fail on 6.2. You will need to manually patch it. But this shouldn't be hard. You may have noticed that yesterday I wrote another mail to hackersATsuckless.org where I posted a fixed version of exactly this patch. I also have another patch for the statusbar which allows to define the vertical size of the bar and horizontal gaps between the tag-icons https://dwm.suckless.org/patches/statuspadding/. Additionally, I also removed the window-title in the statusbar. Oh and it has transparency. You can find my configuration in my github-repository https://github.com/astier/dwm and also the fixed version of the tag-patch and also all the other patches which I use.
