How can i make the menubar smaller?

If you’re referring to the height of the bar, open the file ~/.config/awesome/rc.lua (which is the main configuration file for awesome) and find this line:

s.mywibox = awful.wibar({ position = "top", screen = s })

Change it to something like this:

s.mywibox = awful.wibar({ position = "top", screen = s, height = 20 })

(change the value for the bar height according to your preferences)

Save the file and restart awesome using Ctrl+Super+r to see the changes in your system.
