    Re: Post your .conkyrc files w/ screenshots

    ## Development Platforms (current)
    #
    #  Ubuntu 10.10 'Maverick Meerkat' (GNOME 2.28 - Conky 1.8.0)
    #  Ubuntu 12.04 'Precise Pangolin' (GNOME-SHELL - UNITY 2D/3D - Conky 1.8.1)

    #
    ## Tips n' Tricks
    ## Several ppl (including myself) have experienced issues with conky-all 1.8.1-6
    ## In every instance, downgrading to conky-all 1.8.1-5 has solved the problem(s).
    ## I recommend using (and pinning) conky-all 1.8.1-5 until things get sorted.

    ## Most necessary fonts can be downloaded here: http://ompldr.org/vOHdoag

    ## Run this command in a terminal (rebuilds font cache file): sudo fc-cache -fv
    
    ####

    I was trying to get rid of the "0B" indications, so that I can see only the data movement on the active network interface, eventually getting a spectrometer line in there, most likely.

    Good job!

    I see you're using the "stunted, incomplete, and dead" Google Weather API. LoL!

    Me too. I haven't had to touch that thing in months -- it just works.




    BTW, I don't know if you listen to audio, but I've had my fill of Banshee & Rhythmbox. Guayadeque is my current choice.

    Here's the code, if anyone is interested...

    Code:

    Re: Post your .conkyrc files w/ screenshots

    Is there a 'foolproof' or 'idiot proof' way of displaying Rhythmbox album art in Conky? I've tried couple things from crunchbang forums, but it will not work. Not to mention a lot of it goes over my head.

    Honestly? And I really, really, really hope I'm wrong here, I don't think there is a "Foolproof" or "Idiot Proof" way to do it. Not because it's naturally hard or anything, but I've seen a lot (At least 6) of posts here in this thread over the past couple months where people beg for a solution and nothing anyone tries actually works for them.

    So, I THINK, though I'm not perfectly sure, that there might be a problem with the rhythmbox code at the heart of it. Nothing official, but certainly I think you wouldn't be alone in not being able to get it working. Whether that has anything to do with you being an "Idiot" or "Fool" for the code to be suited to you is probably irrelevant. It seems some rather good coders don't have perfect answers either.

    Now, I'd love to have some better coders come along and give a definitive guide as to why I'm wrong on this. Because I haven't seen any answers to this in months.

    Re: Post your .conkyrc files w/ screenshots

    Frustrating thing is I did have it working before on 10.04. New hard drive with fresh install of 10.04-4. I was wondering if I was putting those scripts in correct directory too. /bin? And .album in my home dir. with 'allow executing..' checked. This is the one I was trying:
    http://crunchbanglinux.org/forums/to...um-art/page/6/

    Those weather scripts don't give me this much hassle, and those really do get tricky. Perhaps I'll try another music player. Only hang up with that is the other parts like Artist name, album name,song title work fine.

    Truthfully? I believe it all goes in your Conky directory. As in whatever folder your Conky script is in. As long as the script you save is the script you call, and the paths, spelling, and rights are the same, it should work. You shouldn't have to move anything. Maybe it's a conky version problem, maybe it's something else. Troubleshooting is a slow process that you have to go through when you're dealing with the forums. I do find it easier to help when you post all of your scripts when you ask a question. We can rule the code in or out, or make substitutions much easier when you post what YOU have here on the forum in code tags.

    Personally, though I'm biased, I don't particularly like the music player code people are using in Conky. Something about it seems kinda... pointless... I guess? Personal preference in this case. Don't take it personally. Use what you want to use. But, hopefully, seeing me type these words, someone will come in and join the troubleshooting process. Keep an eye out for it!

    As i can see man makes typo all the way.
    In a first script it uses "%aa" to get album title but it should be "%at" - as he do it right in second script.

    Then he recommends to save script as ".getcover" (in "~/bin" - if you don't have then make it, it's handy, and then add it to BASH $PATH variable), but then, he list his conkyrc with execi to "~/bin/getcover".
    No wonder some may had problem with it.

    Thanks, VinDSL. My only issue with the weather script is having to shuffle the spacing around to accommodate both two-and three-digit temps, which I haven't gotten to fixing quite yet. My needs are simple, and I will likely enshrinken that whole section later in favor of more top processes and maybe some spectrums for my networking. I do appreciate the script and such you have provided for everyone and I am learning a lot.

    Right now I am using Banshee, supplemented by Rhythmbox (can't believe they went back to that in 12.04), but I will give Guayadeque a look-see.
