If you are interested in having rounded corners in bspwm like the scrot below:


I have patched the bspwm source code, and have made a package available on my github.

Installation instructions:

git clone

Then do :

cd into bspwm-patched-pkgbuild (where you just git cloned it to)

sudo pacman -U bspwm-patched-0.9.5-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz

Pacman will then tell you that bspwm is in conflict.
You will the question if you would you like to remove.
Say yes.

Go into your bspwm config in .config/bspwm/bspwmrc and uncomment line 9
(bspc config border_radius)
save & restart bspwm.

You should have rounded corners now

Oddly, I had one rounded corner prior to applying the patch but the end of the bar with the tray icons remains square although it flashes round the goes square when I make a change and save... The patch had no effect...
