    Needs a lot of tweaking, but... Heh, it's a start.

    Nice! How come swap never shows anything being used? Do we even need a swapfile?

    sorry to ask but do you have the bargraph script placed in your .conky folder ?

    if yes it looks like your .conkyrc is calling the wrong bargraph script,
    it should be calling:

    lua_load ~/.conky/bargraph_small.lua
    lua_draw_hook_post main_bars

    and not bargraph_testing:lua

    comment out the bargraph_testing.lua

    and uncomment:
    lua_load ~/.conky/bargraph_small.lua

    that should get rid of the "calling a nil value" problem.


    Problem No.2)
    sh: 1: /usr/share/conkywx/conkywx.sh: not found!
    Have you actually installed conkywx ?

    Problem No.3)
    template0 "/usr/share/conkywx/conkywx.sh"
    template1 "/home/vindsl/.config/conkywx/vindsl-imperial-conkywx.conf"
    template2 "/home/vindsl/.config/conkywx/vindsl-metric-conkywx.conf"
    template3 "/home/vindsl/.config/conkywx/wx-wu-vindsl-imperial-weather-dingbat-template.sh"
    template4 "/home/vindsl/.config/conkywx/wx-wu-vindsl-imperial-weather-graphic-template.sh"
    template5 "/home/vindsl/.config/conkywx/wx-wu-vindsl-metric-weather-dingbat-template.sh"
    template6 "/home/vindsl/.config/conkywx/wx-wu-vindsl-metric-weather-graphic-template.sh"

    you are using "vindsl" as your username when your actual username is not vindsl !!! you must use: /home/jackal/ blah blah
    It is most important to get the path name correct in order to call the scripts and templates.

    tackle these 3 problems first and then we can take a look at the nVidia smi problem and your autostart problem

    i hope i was able to point you in the right direction
    cheers Sean

    Re: HOWTO: VinDSL Conky Script

    Hi,
    I see some of you are using conky with gnome shell. How do you set your conky own_window_type? I set it as 'desktop' and the conky window jumps from right to left end (for a split second) whenever I access overview. If I use 'normal', conky window hides when accessing desktop with 'win+D'.

    This is my configuration currently.
    Code:
    own_window yes
    own_window_type desktop
    own_window_transparent yes
    own_window_hints undecorated,below,sticky,skip_taskbar,skip_pager
    
    own_window_argb_visual yes
    own_window_argb_value 255
    Any ideas? (I am using ubuntu gnome 12.10)

    own_window_argb_visual yes
    own_window_argb_value 255


    Many thanks Sean

    Just my 2 cents here but, I could not get the two to work and just commented out XML_ID and went with location and my setup worked fine.

    You do not have any personal weather station near you - none mentioned at the bottom of the page for Cochin. So just use the Location - it is from the airport and should be fine.

    Hey Sean, thanks for the help. But with your settings the conky window disappears when 'show desktop' (win+D) is used. Do you get similar behavior?

    Thanks, Justin
