Need to update the Manjaro Community Editions page with this new release! :smiley:


It’s still stuck in the past.

Need to update urgently


What do you mean? lol


Works great so far, thanks. Small problem though: The modifier keys in the help window (with all the keybindings) are black, which makes it nearly impossible to read on top of the dark background. Is it possible to change the colour of the font?


Good observation, thx for letting me know! You can add, after the beautiful.init(), the line

beautiful.hotkeys_modifiers_fg = "#2EB398"

this will set a greenish color which looks nice with the current theme (of course you can use another color by experimenting yourself). You can see some more theme variables for hotkeys popup widget here:

I will change it by default to this color.


superb :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:


Perfect, thank you. Looks great now.
