default config

"Copy a default config" copy it from where exactly?

Powerline official docs refer to "powerline_root", but this page does not say where "powerline_root" actually is for Arch. That would be very helpful information to have on this wiki page.

I agree the Wiki could use some updating. Powerline#Customizing says for Arch Linux, "powerline_root" is /usr/lib/python3.7/site-packages/powerline. It then says that you can use a default config and edit it from there. The example file it gives in "powerline_root" is config_files/themes/tmux/default.json. That's in python-powerline. I don't see that package mentioned anywhere on the Wiki page, which is mainly why I'm saying it could use some updating. I see that package contains a ton of other .conf and .json files, and a bunch of those might be other default configs to use. I've always used bash-git-promptAUR and vim-airline instead of powerline, so I'll leave updating the Wiki to someone who actually uses it, if they agree it needs updating. (You can too, as you work through this.) BTW, remember to put 4 tildes at the end of your Wiki discussion page posts. That auto-signs it. I added your missing signature for you.

There is a note saying this:

Note: Installing powerline-fonts does not provide any of the patched fonts from powerline-fonts-gitAUR

But both package are in conflicts:

So is the not accurate? Noraj (talk) 20:12, 10 February 2019 (UTC)
