A user reported it to me that i3status does not display the wifi status
correctly (it shows: "W: down" although it is connected). The user
solved the problem by setting setuid bit on i3status. I cannot, however,
reproduce the error. I have tried it on 3 different machines running S14
and -current and it works fine (ie. It does not require setuid on
/usr/bin/i3status for the wifi status to be displayed as intended).
Has any of you encountered a similar problem?
The i3status Makefile sets:
which, according to i3 developer/author, should suffice and so far has
been sufficient on my systems.
Any feedback will be greatly appreciated.
