    Re: Post your .conkyrc files w/ screenshots

    Hey guys

    I've been playing around with my Amarok script again. I now wrote 2, one for Amarok 1.4 and another for Amarok 2. I also have a new Amarok cover script which works with both 1.4 and 2...

    Re: Post your .conkyrc files w/ screenshots

    Very nice, as usual :biggrin:

    Just a quick change you can add to the cover script. You probably noticed that when the original cover art is not exactly square then the end result doesn't look...

    Re: Post your .conkyrc files w/ screenshots

    To get album art from local files is really rather dependent on the player that you use and if it provides metadata when queried using dcop or qdbus. I posted a couple of scripts in this thread for...

    Re: Post your .conkyrc files w/ screenshots

    Try wireless_link_qual_perc or wireless_link_qual instead if you want the signal strength. I don't think linkstatus is a variable that conky recognises.

    The audio visualizer is wlourf's http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=8861782&postcount=175. I combined it with the album art pulled from Amarok. Here's how I done it:

    I'm working on a new desktop and trying wlourf's Impulse script. It starts up ok and draws the initial graph, but then just sits there. It doesn't talk to pulseaudio.

    I'm using conky 1.8.0. Is...

    lol

    I was going to try and improve it some more before posting the scripts. But as I have not really any bash or layout skills I might as well go ahead and see how you guys would improve it ;)

    [ubuntu] Re: Partition labels/UUIDs changed around

    That's good to know, I was going to install the Intrepid beta later on.

    I still wonder though how sda7 and sda8 changed around, this had nothing to do with OpenSuse as far as I can see.

    [ubuntu] Re: Partition labels/UUIDs changed around

    I thought that might be the case. Does an existing swap partition usually get formatted when installing a distro? Would it be best to use separate swap partitions when dual booting?

    sda2 - / for test install

    sda5 - swap
    sda6 - /home Ubuntu

  17. [gnome] Re: Nautilus displays partition sizes instead of mount point names

    Actually, changing the label of the partition didn't change my original problem. Places still shows the partition size and not the label I assigned it, even after logging off/on.

    I was able to change the label on just one partition. I keep getting the following message on the partitions of my 2 other drives:

    The easiest way to do that is to open Applications > Accessories, then right-click on Terminal and select 'Add this launcher to desktop'.
