Problems with my modeline separator aren't quite the "Ugly separators" problem as seen here. But the color is slightly off, as in this screenshot.

enter image description here

I can solve it with this piece of code. But then everything just looks more drab.

(setq ns-use-srgb-colorspace nil)

Is there a way of fixing the modeline color skew while keeping a full color pallette (or srgb-colorspace)? This is the color balance I expect to have.

  • what operating system are you using? – mclear Apr 2 '17 at 1:28

Assuming you're using OSX, the modeline doesn't display correctly due to a bug with srgb. The if you don't want to set srgb to nil you should use emacs-mac, a osx-friendly version by Mitsuharu Yamamoto.

You can also do this: (setq powerline-default-separator 'utf-8)

If you're not on OSX, then there is a similar srgb problem for your operating system and you'll likely just have to live with it or switch your separators.

  • emacs-mac works like a charm. Cheers :) – Nutritioustim Apr 5 '17 at 2:40

If you don't want to use emacs-mac this will fix your problem (setq powerline-image-apple-rgb t)

as suggested here

    Please summarize the info at that link, in addition to providing the link. Explain how/why that setq sexp fixes the problem. (Link-only answers are likely to be deleted.) – Drew Jul 1 '19 at 14:12
