Spanish style rice - Definitely not a Paella

133 views | 14 Oct. 2020

If you have a medium size

If you have a medium size pan you can try this fabulous rice recipe at home. The ingredients can be found at your local supermarket, make sure to choose the paella rice.

Paella is the Traditional recipe from the region of Valencia. Other short grain rice recipes where the ingredients are changed are often called "Arroz con cosas" (Rice with things). You can have them with seafood, chicken or other types of meat.

The Sofrito (tomato sauce) will make the difference, adding extra flavour to the dish. Perfect to enjoy on a Sunday lunch!

Making a DWM Status Bar and Adding the Bling

11 605 views | 27 Jun. 2020

Lets face it, all of us

Lets face it, all of us like our distro of choice to look good. And when it comes to a standalone window manager like DWM, a big part of the look and feel is the status bar.

I don't know why, but since trying and playing with various tiling window managers, the status bar seems to be what takes me the longest to configure.

So in this video I run through the process I've followed over the last few weeks in DWM.

I start by talking about the development of my collection of scripts (largely borrowed) before moving on to talk about how to get a bit of colour on the bar, dwmblocks, a single script, etc, etc.

I hope you enjoy the video.

Out of town for work but when I get home, this is what I'll be doing. My status bar is nice, clean and minimal but it could look better.
Thanks for a great video.

Bernardo Henriquez

In Gnu/Linux world all you need is IMAGINATION, and you will get what you want :)


You should make a complete xmobar video there aren't many going over it :)


If you save the weather data into tempfs directory you can make things faster

Andrew Palm

Thanks for another very informative video, OTB! Indeed, my experience with tilers is also that the status bar is the trickiest to configure (e.g., Herbstluft using a bash dzen2 script and stalonetray). I learned a lot, but that particular aspect of setting them up was one of the reasons I eventually went back to Xfce. And then I committed the worst of sins and installed the Gnome shell. My panel setup now consists of installing Dash-to-Panel and a couple of other shell extensions. I must confess there is something satisfying about using the DE that all the Linux Kool Kids hate. ;->

LD Williams

Well done for finding ⛅ ?️ ? ⬆️ ⬇️ ? ?️ ?
I've just found emoji picker on Manjaro as you can see, lol


use the other color statusbar patch

peasant vasea

What can I say.... the memory consumption is similar with xfce4 in a regular day of work. I can specify what services to start and I keep it minimal. If is too much, I switch to openbox with all the tools needed to replicate the functionality of a normal desktop.

But for tutorials and when promoting Linux to newbies, I can't ditch the Cinnamon.


used your cpu usage script for some reason the one I used wasn't very accurate I could be compiling a program with all my cores and it's be like 5% bruh

Mike Long

Hi OTB, I do a bit of coding but not with dwm. I noticed a possible an error in your dwblocks configuration. The last comma before your final brace likely shouldn't be included. The line with the {"", "dwmclock", 60, 0}, should be {"", "dwmclock", 60, 0} (no trailing comma). All the lines above it need a trailing comma but the last configuration line does not.


Awesome video, thank you. May I ask what background you are using and where you got it from? It looks phenomenal.

Panagiotis A Natsis

lol thats exactly what i did i gave p on dwmblocks then found that script and added my own stuff


Just out of curiosity, why do you need to constantly know the CPU, memory, and temperature ?

Jake Pedersen

Thank you, this helped immensely. Quick question though, my bar is now looking good but everything is crammed together, how do i space things out? Thanks.

MoonBaseAlpha Grays

Interesting video. The status bar is a pain on most WM's for sure! Lol
I like to use the word "Appropriate" , Stealing is a bit of a harsh word. Nevertheless the end results is the object or the stealthy operation of acquiring what is needed to get it done... :- )
Yes Google is you friend, it is also a butt biter too! Getting it to understand what you want sometimes is a bit like getting the X-Wife to understand why she is a X... Lol
Thanks OTB for the video and all the explanations. I am sure it will help others.
On my SpectrWM I just decided to use a Conky for all the same stuff, no colors.
Ya it is black and white but MX and Peppermint doesn't have the newer SpectrWM in the repos. :-(
I may have to compile it from scratch if I want color's or Not... :-D

vooop binary

I just use the slstatus program. It's a very lesser known suckless program


can you provide those scripts?

Sean M

Very nice. The next thing to do of course is change the emoji based on conditions, e.g. snowflake for cold. A red disk icon for low space. Haha.

I am using dwm 6.2 and I have trouble getting that status color patch to work, so before I investigate further,
could you please tell me which of the patches versions you have applied?

Philipp Scheibe

You can try the status2d-patch for the coloring. Also you can look in the torrinfal/dwmblocks GitHub repo, there ist an issue and a solution to the random-signal problem

Saeid Saati

Thank you so much for this clear and complete explanation.


I like dwmblocks in monochrome. Consider trying out dwmblocks in future again. I stole most of it from Luke and it works well with his scripts. Having ability to click on items in the status may be a useful feature.


Your dwmblocks was crashing because you had same update signal across all of them, and it really don't like that. Even if you don't really use them, you should set them differently for each one. Mixed update signals, even with just 2 modules can give dwmblocks a headache

Mark Scheck

Absolutely love the video!! I'm actually putting covid numbers on mine, also what do you use to record videos? Do you use a Linux based solution?

Renan W. P.

I am not sure if read the output or actually generate the output is better.

Scott Steely

Great video. Let me just say, I can only hope I have your passion for Linux when I'm 60. Although I've been using Linux in one form or another for close to 20 years, I've recently ditched windows on my main pc for arch, and it's reinvigorated my love for computers. Love what your doing OTB and you're inspiring the rest of us FOSS enthusiasts to keep at it!

apig sharbo

I use slstatus from suckless as status bar, although it doesn't have per script update interval. Then again i only display brightness, volume and time.
