"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 . 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
.jsonfiles, and a bunch of those might be other default configs to use. I've always used AUR and instead of , 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. Jamespharvey20 (talk) 01:30, 15 November 2018 (UTC)
There is a note saying this:
But both package are in conflicts:
pikaur -S powerline-fonts-git Reading repository package databases... Reading local package database... Resolving AUR dependencies... :: AUR package will be installed: powerline-fonts-git -> r100.a44abd0-3 :: Proceed with installation? [Y/n] :: [v]iew package details [m]anually select packages >> y looking for conflicting AUR packages... :: powerline-fonts-git and powerline-fonts are in conflict. Remove powerline-fonts? [y/N] N
It's not clear from the page that Neovim is currently not supported, as reported here: https://github.com/powerline/powerline/issues/1287.
Also the "vim plugin manager" installation says "or ~/.local/share/nvim/plugged for Neovim".
I think any current mention of Neovim should be removed and a note explicitly saying that Neovim is not supported added.
