[SOLVED] DWM - Blank menubar?

November 30Hits:0
Advertisement
Hello --
I've just switched from Awesome to DWM after some performance issues -- and through it's great, my menu-bar does not display the titles of open applications, nor do the tags show the little box indicating that there are open windows in that tag. It is working perfectly though, and I've got my battery status and data and time and all such, configured through .xinitrc. I don't know what I have to configure to get that simple performance.
Goofier yet,  I had it earlier -- after accidently hitting some key combination (I think), so I don't think anything needs to be recompiled. It's just a setting somewhere -- or a key combo.
Thanks!
Sam

Got it. Idiotic problem. Noticed by how the gray color of the tag section extended way out to the right, and that a blue section inbetween would flash. This is on an external 1920x1080 monitor, which for whatever reason, seems to wreak havoc with the menubar display.
xrandr --screen VGA1 --mode 1280x800
That restored the menu bar to regular behaviour, though of course, I'll have to figure a work-around to get the proper resolution. Any thoughts? At least the straight dwm distribution is not at fault, just my dual-monitor set-up.
