    Re: HOWTO: VinDSL Conky Script

    Looking good!

    Seeing yours made me realize that the clouds do not display below the day of the week any more like yours does.



    See what I mean? It probably resulted in me adding stuff to it and while I moved the lua for the drives apparently the weather clouds need moving too.

    How do I fix this?
    Thanks!

    Re: HOWTO: VinDSL Conky Script

    Nevermind, I figured it out my own self! It was in that file and all I did was look up conky commands to position and seen "-p x,y" so I just did a find all on "-p" and worked with those and got it right!

    Here is my Unity desktop and I think this is the first time I have been in Unity in a while.






    Now if I could somehow get that invisable bottom panel to not block out the name of the song, it would be nice.

    I'll highlight what I changed in the above post.

    Re: HOWTO: VinDSL Conky Script

    Well, in Classic with both top and bottom panels auto hidden, the song displays. But, when no song is playing VLC and the line displays along with the ${}e below it.

    The song name doesn't scroll either which is what I thought it was supposed to do. Once the song quit only the song name disappeared.



    Here is before and after the song played - just the bottom right hand corner:




    Oh and I copied this verbatim from your post:

    Code:

    Thank you Sir, I thought I was going insane(r). I reported this apparent 'invisible bottom panel' here but got no responses so assumed I had borked my system.

    Sorry for the interruption... normal service can now resume.

    I get this issue with Unity. I've been trying to get Gnome-Shell running but keep borking my system. I'm hoping that today GS will be stable enough for me to try the VM test.

    Finally got a GS running in 13.04 B2 and confirmed that the invisible bottom panel only occurs in Unity. Sanity restored.

    I think I fixed it. I found this and added it to the .conkyrc file:

    Code:
    ####added by me
    ## Maximum size of user text buffer, i.e. layout below TEXT line in config file (default is 16384 bytes)
    max_user_text 17408
    I changed it from default 16384 (16384 / 16 = 1024) to 17408 (17408 / 17 = 1024). It didn't really work until I logged out and back, so I am not sure about the number.
    I have a 1920x1200 monitor and figured I was reaching some limit at the bottom causing the "invisible" bottom panel overlay.
    Still have to have the bottom panel autohide but, it does show now.



    I don't even know what I am doing but, I think that fixed it.
    Haven't tried this with Unity. I am in gnome fallback.

    In Precise I have to have both the top and bottom panels autohide in order for the song name to display. I just copied the .conkyrc and the ~/.conky/bargraph_testing.lua files over to Precise, logged out and back in and viola.

    Once again, good job detective!

    Extrapolating backwards (repeatedly subtracting 1000 bytes and restarting Conky) I was able to reproduce the space at the bottom. Each time I removed another 1000 bytes, the space increased in size.

    Doing a little research, I discovered that this setting used to be hard-coded into Conky (default 8192). Can you imagine? LoL!

    In 2006, they made it a config item, doubling the size (default 16384). Evidently, you hit_the_wall.

    SOURCE: http://conky.sourceforge.net/changelog-pre.html

    Let's go ahead and double it again, just for good measure (32768).

    Code:
    ####
    ## This buffer is used for single lines, text, output from $exec, and other variables.
    ## Increasing the 'text_buffer_size' (too high) will drastically reduce Conky's performance.
    ## Decreasing the buffer size (too low) will truncate content and cause strange display output.
    ## Standard text buffer size is 256 bytes (cannot be less). Adjust YOUR buffer wisely!
    ## Tips n' Tricks from dk75:"You don't need to create a 12KiB buffer for every Conky config line."
    #
    text_buffer_size 4352
    
    ####
    ## Maximum number of special things, e.g. fonts, offsets, aligns, etc. (default is 512)
    ## Tips n' Tricks from: sparker256 (Thanks, Bill!)
    #
    max_specials 600
    
    ####
    ## Maximum size of user text buffer, e.g. for layout below TEXT line (default is 16384)
    ## Increase this, as needed, to accomodate large config files with a great deal of text. 
    ## Tips n' Tricks from: Cavsfan
    #
    max_user_text 32768
    Thanks!
