Configuration

pixfetch can be configured using a config file in $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/pixfetch/config.toml or when $XDG_CONFIG_HOME is not set in $HOME/.config/pixfetch/config.toml. To see all options you can have a look at the default configuration file.

Additionally, all configuration can also be overridden with flags from the command line. To see those options run pixfetch --help or pixfetch -h for shorter descriptions.

sudo install -Dm644 LICENSE /usr/share/licenses/pixfetch/LICENSE

From source

1. Clone the repository:
git clone https://github.com/RubixDev/pixfetch.git
2. Compile the binary:
cargo build --release
3. Copy the binary, README and LICENSE
sudo install -Dm755 "${CARGO_TARGET_DIR:-target}/release/pixfetch" /usr/bin/pixfetch
sudo install -Dm644 README.md /usr/share/doc/pixfetch/README.md
sudo install -Dm644 LICENSE /usr/share/licenses/pixfetch/LICENSE
4. Locate the output directory:

This is where the generated man page and shell completion scripts are located. The location of that folder was logged while building the binary. Alternatively you can use following command:

find "${CARGO_TARGET_DIR:-target}/release" -name pixfetch.1 -print0 | xargs -0 ls -t | head -n1 | xargs dirname

You can then open that directory using cd.
