       xmobar - A configurable and extensible status bar for X11 desktops


       xmobar [OPTIONS] [CONFIG_FILE]


       xmobar  is  a  minimalistic, text based, status bar.  It was originally
       designed and implemented by Andrea Rossato to  work  with  xmonad,  but
       it's actually usable with any window-manager.

       xmobar was inspired by the Ion3 ( status
       bar, and supports similar  features,  like  dynamic  color  management,
       output templates, and extensibility through plugins.

       This page documents xmobar 0.16.


       xmobar  can  be  either  configured  with  a configuration file or with
       command line options. In the second case, the command line options will
       overwrite the corresponding options set in the configuration file.

       The  configuration  file is searched for in the following locations, in

              $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/xmobar/xmobarrc                       (default:

       The    first    configuration    file   found   will   be   used.   See
       /usr/share/doc/xmobar/examples for sample configuration files.


             xmobar -B white -a right -F blue  -t  '%LIPB%' -c  '[Run  Weather
       "LIPB" [] 36000]'
