Do you mean you want to add polybar in KDE?

:upside_down_face: :cry:

cp "/usr/share/doc/polybar/config" "$XDG_CONFIG_HOME/polybar/config"

Don't use sudo. Don't ask me "why?". Read Archwiki about it.

And before you ask "why it still doesn't work?", I sincerely have no idea what polybar is and how it works.
