Hi, How do I disable the weather update messages from conkywx (1.7.8 )? In gnome shell the notifications persist and I should manually remove each of them. After a days use, message tray is full of this notifications.
It would be far better if notifications are only shown if there is status change (say if update failed for two or more time continously, only one message is shown).
Refer to the conkywx wiki or manual
change show_notification value to 0 in the conkywx config file conkywx.conf
That was obvious (once you said it), I wonder why I didn't check there first. Sorry, and a big Thank you.
Forecast values are not for your area but generally for an airport generating hourly METAR reports.
For example Tampa FL has 4 airports of which one is used for their METAR reports and their reported forecasts as well. So one cannot compare those forecasts with your location temperatures.
On the bright side WU on it's own gives a statement how good are the forecasts ( good or excellent ) at the bottom on the forecast section on their web page.
Excellent Forecast Quality
The forecast temperature is usually less than 1.5 degrees C warmer or cooler than the observed temperature.
Good Forecast Quality
The forecast temperature is usually 1.5 to 2.5 degrees C warmer or cooler than the observed forecast.
The Element for this I have used is QOF [ quality of forecast ] which gives you output based on what they say good excellent or what ever
Why do we have conky own_window_type set to normal? This causes conky to disappear when pressing win+D (show desktop). When changed the value to 'desktop' conky is not hiding with win+D. Any specific reasons or is it just a preference?
Also, is it possible to have conky displayed even on overview (gnome)? I really like if conky acted as part of the background and is visible always. (for example, the wallpaper changer 'variety' has a desktop clock option that is diplayed even on overview).
makes conky disappear when clicking the desktop.Code:own_window_type desktop
you also need to useCode:own_window_type normal
to avoid minimizing on showing the desktop.Code:own_window_hints undecorated,below,skip_taskbar,skip_pager,sticky
May also need to uncheck
ccsm > General options > Hide Skip Taskbar Windows.
From man conky...
if own_window is yes, you may specify type normal, desktop, dock, panel or override (default: normal). Desktop windows are special windows that have no window decorations; are always visible on your desktop; do not appear in your pager or taskbar; and are sticky across all workspaces. Panel windows reserve space along a desktop edge, just like panels and taskbars, preventing maximized windows from overlapping them. The edge is chosen based on the alignment option. Override windows are not under the control of the window manager. Hints are ignored. This type of window can be useful for certain situations.
own_window_hints undecorated,below,above,sticky,skip_taskbar,skip_p ager
If own_window is yes, you may use these window manager hints to affect the way Conky displays. Notes: Use own_window_type desktop as another way to implement many of these hints implicitly. If you use own_window_type override, window manager hints have no meaning and are ignored.
