    Use what works out best for you, whether it be Windows, Mac OS X or Linux. It isn't rocket science.

    Re: Post your .conkyrc files w/ screenshots

    perhaps in the future any further
    "vinDSL conky doesnt work for meeee!!!"
    posts should be directed to PM vinDSL?

    anyway heres a little something

    conky screen saver

    the script draws a circle, radius equal to current cpu usage, then moves randomly (distance based on cpu usage too) and draws a new circle. Ive set its enclosure to my whole screen so it should just roam around and look pretty

    this is it with conky running 2 updates per second


    this is 1 update per second

    script for ring
    Code:
    require 'cairo'
    
    
    function conky_draw_fig()

    the 2nd scrip is shown as per 2nd pic. i ll also give the lua script for the clok to load

    Code:
    --[[
    This script draws percentage meters as rings, and also draws clock hands if you want! It is fully customisable; all options are described in the script. This script is based off a combination of my clock.lua script and my rings.lua script.
    
    IMPORTANT: if you are using the 'cpu' function, it will cause a segmentation fault if it tries to draw a ring straight away. The if statement on line 145 uses a delay to make sure that this doesn't happen. It calculates the length of the delay by the number of updates since Conky started. Generally, a value of 5s is long enough, so if you update Conky every 1s, use update_num>5 in that if statement (the default). If you only update Conky every 2s, you should change it to update_num>3; conversely if you update Conky every 0.5s, you should use update_num>10. ALSO, if you change your Conky, is it best to use "killall conky; conky" to update it, otherwise the update_num will not be reset and you will get an error.
    
    To call this script in Conky, use the following (assuming that you save this script to ~/scripts/rings.lua):
        lua_load ~/scripts/clock_rings.lua
        lua_draw_hook_pre clock_rings

    Yes, that's right

    I have a question:
    I'm using ppp0 for internet, so ${wireless_link_qual} variable won't work for me, right? Is there an available argument for monitoring ppp0 signal?

    Because nm-applet on the panel can show me the signal quality. I scanned man page but didn't find a clue.

    If the connection is called ppp0, typically it doesn't have a quality. It's just a network connection. If there's a specific program that has results, you can try to grep/awk the results. Preferably text-based program for this.

    In fact, pretty much any text program that spits out a text result in the prompt can provide data for Conky. Uses the ${execi} command. It gets fun.

    Sorry, I solved it not long after that last post. It was that argb like you suggested earlier. I had the line there but it was commented. I had to uncomment it.

    The only other issue is that there is a slight shading under the conky. I don't think its window shadows as they are light blue plus it come up as soon as the conky is started (before it even fully loads). I think its to do with the conky area. Is there a way to fix it?

    Re: Post your .conkyrc files w/ screenshots

    You could install graphicmagick from the repositories and then add a gm command to the script to crop it.

    See http://www.graphicsmagick.org/convert.html

    Here is what it says about cropping:

    crop <width>x<height>{+-}<x>{+-}<y>{%}

    preferred size and location of the cropped image

    is there some command that's ment to come before the gm? cause it isn't red like the wget command

    Code:
    wget -q http://sohowww.nascom.nasa.gov/data/realtime/eit_304/512/latest.jpg -O /home/me/john/sun.jpg
    gm -crop <width>x<height>{+-}<x>{+-}<y>{%}

    In fact, pretty much any text program that spits out a text result in the prompt can provide data for Conky. Uses the ${execi} command. It gets fun.
    Hmmm, I'll back for the technical later after finding such application.
    I only use nm-applet (which is a GUI application but can report signal quality) and vnstat (text application but doesn't have signal monitoring feature). Hope will find it soon.

    I think it's the window drawn by the argb setting (I used your conkyrc with Xfce compositing); you do not want to use:

    Code:
    own_window_transparent yes
    with the argb - pick one or the other; and since you're using lua for a semi-transparent background there is no need to duplicate it with the argb configuration.

    Try changing:

    Code:
    own_window yes
    #own_window_colour eeeeee
    #own_window_type normal
    own_window_transparent yes
    own_window_hints undecorated,below,sticky,skip_taskbar,skip_pager
    own_window_argb_visual yes
    to:

    Code:
    own_window yes
    own_window_colour eeeeee
    own_window_type normal
    own_window_transparent yes
    own_window_hints undecorated,below,sticky,skip_taskbar,skip_pager
    and see if that works.

    Also, if you decide you are going to use argb instead, then

    Code:
    own_window_argb_visual yes
    will need to be given a value from 0-255 with something like:

    Code:
    own_window_argb_value 10

    wicd has a cli... does mean switching nm for wicd however
