    Altered the USB output so that it disappears when USB drive is ejected. Now I have it just how I want it (at least for the next 20min).

    USB mounted:

I've recently got the PC version installed (with patches) on my WIN7 partition, so I get to do some retro gaming again. I'm thinking about getting FF3 for my phone, but I have better things to spend $15 on ATM.

    Update: reading through conky variables documentation and already tweaking again. That didn't take long, did it?
    WOW!!!!!!!! I said a month, looks like it took just over that in hours not days. YUP! You're hooked!

    I don't 'game' on the PC and Windows has been gone for 5 years now. In fact the last BSOD W2K gave me told me the HD was dead. A 6 month old Western Digital that 24 hours later was happily running Ubuntu 7.04 and today sits in my mother-in-laws old Compaq Presario running SliTaz Linix in with 256 MB RAM. Dead my MS-behind!

    We sold our PS-I complete with games, to get our PS-II, that was a HUGE mistake. FF-13 is out (MS Windows - [to be] ported to PS-III) and FF-14 is out - another MMORPG (I hate those too).

    BTW; Love that "master at wealth avoidance" seems to be a disease I have too, just didn't know the name.

    Take a look at Conky PitStop in my sig.

    And to get things back on topic, my daily conkys on Desktop 1:

    Re: Post your .conkyrc files w/ screenshots

    Can any one tell me why the conky on the right keeps getting a white background after I login and open say terminal or Firefox.
    It is transparent at first but, if I open anything it gets the white background.

    Here is an example:



    If I open the home directory and click on show hidden files like I am going to edit the file, it always fixes itself, goes back to transparent and I never have another problem with it for that session.
    It does this on Precise and Quantal both.
    I am on Quantal and do not have an Nvidia driver just have the nouveau driver.
    Always has worked great on Lucid.

    Every time I login into either Ubuntu it does this.

    Here is the conky for it:
    Code:
    alignment top_right
    background no
    border_width 0
    cpu_avg_samples 2
    default_color white

    net_avg_samples 2
    no_buffers yes

    Wild thing,
    you make my conky zing ...


    That's the weirdest thing I've seen.
    And to be honest NOT a clue.

    But we gotta try right ... so lets start with this change:
    Code:
    background no
    to
    Code:
    background yes
    and see what that does.

    run it through the loops until your sure it works or "Oops! White!

    If that does nothing try this change:
    Code:
    own_window_type override
    to
    Code:
    own_window_type normal
    override eliminates most of the own_window_hints

    X'ing fingers.

    Unity was the first Linux environment I ever tried (less than a year ago) so I just got used to it. I've tried KDE and Gnome and I just like Unity better. I think its just a matter of what you are most used to and the level of customizing you want. I actually grown to like Unity2D the most, because it is extremely friendly to my laptop's resources and has nearly the same functionality as the 3D version.

    I'm just amazed that after spending most of my computing life solely on Windows, when I now use a Windows a computer (which I should be used to), I can't stand it at all. Its like trying to return to dial up internet after having experienced high speed internet.
    My first experience with Linux was red hat back in 2003....


    When I use windows it all seems so........ childish? So locked down and limited with what you can do. In linux you can do anything you want and have 50 ways to do any one thing. It's yours to make your own.

    My dream home is a log cabin, which is Odd because I Work and make my money in technology and would build a uber home data center in my cabin, in the woods...


    The only thing holding me back is money and availability of high speed Internet in the sticks.

    Technology is nice - to a point! But "nothing" (IMHO) beats good quality log cabin type construction! The are limits though.

    This is beyond a "fixer-upper"!!!

    not many people have progressed further than a few ring meters and such which is a pity
    but certainly not an impossible task by any means to learn how to code
    Hahahahahahaha its difficult to learn if you have never programmed before. I'm trying to slightly change that
    I'm a super power user

    Re: Post your .conkyrc files w/ screenshots

    Special thanks to "mrpeachy" and "Sector11", also all the posts here, and all the ones on crunchbanglinux.org's web site. I guess I got the 'conky' fever too!

    So here's my screenshot after a night of working to get it perfect. (At least for me)

    To achieve this is really pretty simple, just follow the directions in the Readme for the v9000 stuff.
    Once you look through the file you should be able to get yours up and running. If I did it, then anyone could...

    You can get the v9000 stuff here

    Oh yeah, I'm running conky 1.9.1...

    Obviously remove the .txt extension from the conkyrc file I uploaded! Good Luck...

    Jed
    p.s. I think I deserve like at least 15 beans for getting this done! hehe

    Thank you Sector11!
    The 2nd one fixed it!

    As you can imagine that was annoying as heck!
    I do believe I am good to go now thanks a lot!
