    Too bad that ConkyGUI is so rudimentary. It would be nice to have the code syntax check once in a while. But, it doesn't seem to like multiple tabs for multiple conkys and lua scripts. So, I guess it was just a nice thought.

    Trust me, this isn't an issue of right or wrong. I'm glad we at least aired this in the open so there was no confusion about it. A lot of people can confuse the different types of these interfaces.

I'm not afraid to open a terminal and use it, but would prefer to just use a graphical environment.
    If you've been folowing this ... just use any text editor ... it is only a text file. make a backup first.

    Look here: Conky Setup Guide

    It is pretty rudimentary isn't it. I think it's probably abandoned.

    And I didn't mean right/wrong in that sense - it was a lead in to, as you said, "air this in the open"!

    42dorian and sector11, thank you both for the replies. I will try the graphical text editor.

    Yeah, don't try that conkyGUI. It's a piece of junk. I just ran it once this past couple hours and it resulted in my entire Conky getting reformatted. It didn't work right at all. In fact I'm still recovering some of the damage it did.

    I can't reproduce the error, on this end, but since it involves a nil value, and (cr) is being set to nil in a previous line, I would try...

    Code:
    <snip>
    
    function conky_draw_bg()
        if conky_window==nil then return end
        if cr==nil then cairo_destroy(cr) end
        local w=conky_window.width
        local h=conky_window.height
        local v=vindsl_hack
        local cs=cairo_xlib_surface_create(conky_window.display, conky_window.drawable, conky_window.visual, conky_window.width, conky_window.height)
        local cr=cairo_create(cs)
        
        cairo_move_to(cr,corner_r,0)
        cairo_line_to(cr,w-corner_r,0)
        cairo_curve_to(cr,w,0,w,0,w,corner_r)
        cairo_line_to(cr,w,h+v-corner_r)
        cairo_curve_to(cr,w,h+v,w,h+v,w-corner_r,h+v)
        cairo_line_to(cr,corner_r,h+v)
        cairo_curve_to(cr,0,h+v,0,h+v,0,h+v-corner_r)
        cairo_line_to(cr,0,corner_r)
        cairo_curve_to(cr,0,0,0,0,corner_r,0)
        cairo_close_path(cr)
    
        cairo_set_source_rgba(cr,rgb_to_r_g_b(bg_colour,bg_alpha))
        cairo_fill(cr)
    end
    
    <snip>
    Just thinking out loud. Let me know if it works... or not.
    Thanks for helping VinDSL, but it was actually my own silly fault! It turns out that my scripts directory was called ~/scripts as opposed to ~/Scripts . Stupid me -_-

    Re: Post your .conkyrc files w/ screenshots

    Can anyone explain this strange phenomenon to me, please? There are times when I make a modification to my conkyrc, and then when conky resets, it resets to the OTHER side of my desktop.

    Attached is a screenshot of what I'm talking about.

    And also, the little picture of the sun or the moon ALWAYS has those darn clouds behind it, even if the weather conditions are "Clear" or "Sunny".
