    Kaivalagi's Python Scripts

    ArchLinux : Package support is present in the AUR. All my packages can be seen here: http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?SeB=m&K=kaivalagi

    Ubuntu/Debian : All the script packages have now been copied into the Conky Companions PPA. Any package updates will be provided by the team through this new ppa. The ppa can be found here: https://launchpad.net/~conky-companions/+archive/ppa. To use this ppa first delete the old ppa files using this: "sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/m-buck* && sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/conkyhardcore*". Then follow the modified first post instructions for the scripts


    As the number of scripts I've created for Conky has grown, I figured I would create a thread to link to all the scripts threads.

    So here they are:



    All are available via the Conky Companions PPA, which can be setup in two simple steps.

    1) Add the repository to your OS install:
    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:conky-companions/ppa
    * Note if you are running 9.10 or below then refer to the PPA link at the end of this post for help on installing from the ppa, good guidance can be found on the launchpad site

    2) Now that is done simply run the following to update your repo cache and install. To install conkyForecast for example:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install conkyforecast
    If you have any suggestions for new scripts, just post them here.

    At the Conky Companion PPA site you will find source code, packages and tarballs too. It can be found here: https://launchpad.net/~conky-companions/+archive/ppa

    If you require assistance with any of the scripts, please read their respective threads, and if necessary, post in them. I will not answer your script specific questions here, I will just ask you go to the correct thread!

    Do you have or know of a script that can check how many system updates are available? Thanks in advance.

    Knocked up the attached in 10 minutes...needs work though. I am not sure whether it will actually update the apt cache too though, so will only show what the system updates would once they've done their thing.


    You might find a command line function that will do a nicer job...but I dont know of one other than the standard apt-get/aptitude functions (you can use these with a -s option to simulate only)

    Re: Kaivalagi's Python Scripts

    Thanks I'll give this a try. I'm new to Linux so reading the scripts and testing in terminal will let me see whats going on so I can learn to do myself.

    The scripts not great, it displays a lot of stuff you wont want to see...there is no easy way to turn off all the initialisation output

    INSTALL UPDATE

    New instructions on setting up the repository in your system have been added to the first post, as follows

    Remove any existing /etc/apt/sources.list entry before or after doing this!

    1) Create the necessary list file for access to the repository by running this:

    Code:
    sudo wget -q http://www.kaivalagi.com/m-buck-ppa.list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/m-buck-ppa.list
    2) Add the repository public key to your apt setup by running this:

    Code:
    wget -q http://www.kaivalagi.com/m-buck-ppa-key.gpg -O- | sudo apt-key add -

    Re: Kaivalagi's Python Scripts

    INSTALL UPDATE

    PPA Location Changes

    I have created new PPA's on launchpad to sub-divide all my scripts into their own categories. As such the installation steps for conky scripts have changed, which have been updated on the first post.

    You should all change the repository details using the first post steps to get new updates, no new updates will be applied to the old archive location going forwards.

    By all means leave the old settings in place too, but these will not help you much.

    Jaunty Package Support

    I have created equivalent packages for Jaunty Jackalope in my PPA's now. They are identical to the intrepid packages but sit under a jaunty location. In my limited testing they all seem to work fine. Again the first post has been updated to describe the setup steps.

    Chimo!
