    Here are my Monitor properties...

    Code:

    Display Properties:
     lcd monitor:    Dell UltraSharp 1907FP (analog input)
      dimensions:    1280x1024 pixels (339x271 millimeters)
      resolution:    96x96 dots per inch
    
    vindsl@Zuul:~$
    Here are my Conky properties...

    Code:
    ####
    ## Minimum size of the text area.
    ## Syntax: minimum_size [width] [height]
    #
    minimum_size 245 1394
    
    ####
    ## Maximum width of the text area.
    ## Syntax: maximum_width [width]
    #
    maximum_width 245
    
    ####
    ## Gap between text and screen borders.
    #
    gap_x 6	  # Left/Right
    gap_y 32  # Top/Bottom
    Soooo, while the text area is 245 pixels wide, the whole Conky display is 251 pixels wide, with the 6 pixel gap.

    Heh! Gets worse than that, my friend!

    Been playing with Peppermint Two OS, on my 16GB Cruzer USB key, for the past 3 hours.

    Here's what I'm listening to now...

    Good stuff VinDSL - thanks for that.

    Also made some small changes:

    1. changed icon set to #2, looks a bit more 'real'

    2. added 5th day to forecast, just for something to do and to fill a gap

    3. added station name and update time to header

    simply removed everything from the header bar WEATHER (in .conkyrc file) then added this as the first line to my template:

    Code:
    <snip>
    
    ## show last fetch time in heading
    ${voffset -15}${font DroidSans:bold:size=8}${color3}${goto 55}  ${offset 3}${color3}[SN]${offset 3}${color4}  updated:${offset 3}${color9}[LF]${color8}${voffset -2}${offset 8}${hr 1}${font}
    
    <snip>
    Result:




    As an aside: times and temperatures are real ..... nice place to live, 15 mins walk to the beach

    Cheers / Frank

    Re: HOWTO: VinDSL Conky Script

    Got any suggestions of where to look (and possibly how to use) for a logo for Mint? Doesn't seem the openlogos font has one. Not sure how to change the code to add in an actual image.

    You can google for linux mint logo images and you will get a lot of images both transparent and others - just place it in the code with conky image element.

    refer to http://conky.sourceforge.net/variables.html for image how to

    You can refer to vinDSL or conkywx examples for reference

    cheers

    Exactly!

    In the Peppermint example (above) I stole the logo from their website, but...

    I don't (directly) use Google Search, which is a NSA honeypot!

    I use Startpage, which uses Google Search, but bypasses their filters and data collection, through the use of ixquick proxy servers.


    Click the "Images" link, in the top left corner, and type "linux mint logo" in the search box...




    BTW, the screenie above is Conkywx on Gnome 3.7.2 with pseudo-transparency...

    Living on the edge with gnome 3.7.2 - and what about the tan colour

    Yes - start page is now what I shall use - though tor is also a good proxy
