    Question Re: Howto: Get a beautiful Conky 1.4.2 setup

    Decided to tune up my Conky and can't seem to figure this one out.

    I looked up the variables and found
    Code:
    ${wireless_essid ath1}
    should allow me to view the name of the wireless AP that I'm hooked to. Doesn't quite seem to work - it just prints the code to screen.

    I've already found that the code for the wireless quality is incorrect as read from the sourceforge page, so I'm sure this is the case here. I found how to do this by culling the Post Your Conky Files thread, but I couldn't find the above needed correction.

    Thanks to all, in advance.

    if you want conky to display your wireless essid, then you can just do
    Code:
    ${exec iwconfig eth1 | grep "ESSID" | cut -c 25-50}
    the cut command depends on your output. but that's the general idea.

    Most excellent. With a little finagling of the cut numbers it worked perfectly. I thank you much.

    Re: Howto: Get a beautiful Conky 1.4.2 setup

    Can anybody help me.. I have conky set to load on start-up - it loads, then goes off again and I have to manually start it from the terminal.

    any suggestions?

    Re: Howto: Get a beautiful Conky 1.4.2 setup

    Im trying to conky 1.47 from source. I think Ive installed all the required dependencies (there are more that what are actually listed on the sourceforge conky website). Anyway at the end of the configure process I get the following:

    Code:
     * x11:
      x11 support:      yes
      xdamage support:  yes
      xdbe support:     yes
      xft support:      yes
    
     * music detection:
      audacious:        no
      bmpx:             no
      mpd:              yes
      xmms2:            no
    
     * general:
      hddtemp:          yes
      portmon:          yes
      RSS:              no
      wireless:         no
    Does anyone know how I can make some of those no statements become yes?? Specifically wireless and RSS. Ive looked for the configure options available (such as --enable-wireless), but I couldnt find any available options. Any suggestions??

    I guess on the same note I tried to compile the svn sources, but also keep getting errors in the configure process

    Code:
    checking for BASE_DEPENDENCIES... configure: error: Package requirements (cairo >= 0.9.2.
                                                  libsvg-cairo >= 0.1.6) were not met:
    
    No package 'libsvg-cairo' found
    
    Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
    installed software in a non-standard prefix.
    
    Alternatively, you may set the environment variables BASE_DEPENDENCIES_CFLAGS
    and BASE_DEPENDENCIES_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
    See the pkg-config man page for more details.
    Im stumped on this error, b/c obviously this is pointing to a mssing package dependency but I dont know what this is!!

    Re: Howto: Get a beautiful Conky 1.4.2 setup

    Ive managed to get a little farther and found these were the options to compile the conky-1.47 version:

    ./configure --enable-wlan --enable-rss -enable-audacious --enable-bmpx

    The xmms2 package is not available in the repositories.

    The configure process completes however this is what Im finding during the make process:

    make
    make: *** No rule to make target `configure.ac', needed by `Makefile.in'. Stop.


    Help???

    I love this application, however I have a major question. I have an Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 processor. Is there anyway to get a temp for every core?

    Re: Howto: Get a beautiful Conky 1.4.2 setup

    Hey I followed the instructions exactly, however Conky only shows up as gnome is starting and before my wallpaper appears then it disappears. It also shows up as I am shutting down. How can I fix this?
