    Cool Re: Post your .conkyrc files w/ screenshots

    My conky is located in:/home/michelle/.conkyrc/conkyrc

    I've tried moving it around in my home directory, but that didn't help either.

    I've been starting conky in the terminal with the command: conky

    It doesn't run at all; just gives me the same old error message:
    michelle@the-cathouse:~$ conky
    WARNING: gnome-keyring:: couldn't connect to: /tmp/keyring-02idlF/pkcs11: No such file or directory
    Conky: invalid configuration file '/home/michelle/.conkyrc'

    Conky: missing text block in configuration; exiting
    ***** Imlib2 Developer Warning ***** :
    This program is calling the Imlib call:

    imlib_context_free();

    With the parameter:

    context

    being NULL. Please fix your program.

    I've been around the web, too; on the arch site and a bunch of others, but everything they suggested, I tried, and it didn't work.

    This what I got after I made the /rpc directory, put the text file in there of the code you gave me, and ran the conky command:
    michelle@the-cathouse:~$ WARNING: gnome-keyring:: couldn't connect to: /tmp/keyring-02idlF/pkcs11: No such file or directory
    Conky: invalid configuration file '/home/michelle/rpc'

    Conky: no readable personal or system-wide config file found

    I still can't help but wonder if there's something wrong on my computer. Why would all the conky files I've tried not work? Even the default file from the developers gave that same error message. At least this time the error message is different.
    And what it this keyring thing it can't seem to find? Could that be the cause of the trouble?

    Still plugging away!

    Re: Post your .conkyrc files w/ screenshots

    See HERE for info.

    If using conky -c option to run conky make sure the path to your
    config is correct.
    Go to your configs location in the file browser and right click on it and copy.
    In the terminal enter conky -c followed by a space then, right click in the terminal and choose Paste Filenames.


    If using just conky to run, your config has to be @
    Code:
    /home/michelle/.conkyrc
    Where .conkyrc is your config not a folder.


    Running in terminal...
    Code:
    gedit /home/michelle/.conkyrc
    Should open your config in gedit.

    Hi - I'll bet you put the command in from an email notification.
    After I saved my last post I noticed that it said:

    Code:
    conky -c ~rpc
    not
    Code:
    conky -c ~/rpc
    However stinkeye gave some sage advice.
    The questions I finally asked should have been asked first.
    Live and learn.

    Does it work now?

    I just finished the same thing - different font. Different look.
    I like that font .. grabbed it ...thanks

    Here's another option for DobsonM
    Uses or commented out:
    1. alignment middle_middle
    2. gap_x 0 # left-right
    3. gap_y 0 # up-down
    4. #minimum_size 0 0
    5. #maximum_width 0, and
    6. xftfont WenQuanYi Micro Hei Mono:size=10

    for when I use ${font} under TEXT to give a finer spacing aspect with less negative ${voffset} commands.

    Code:
    # To use #! in a conky use: ${exec echo '#!'}
    # killall conky && conky -c ~/.conky/conky11/Date-Hour.conky &

    I had started working on it before you posted - but I'm a slow 3.5 finger typist that has to look at the keyboard ... and I paused to have breakfast with my wife when she got up. When it was done I clicked on the link and - stinkeye beat me to it. Grrrrrrrrr

    The beauty of Linix: 1,000,001 ways to do the same thing - and get new fonts.

    I added:
    Code:
    draw_outline yes # amplifies text if yes
    default_outline_color black
    to my version so it shows on light walls. For something so simple it's really quite elegant. Must try that new font though, plus I changed to 24 hour time and added seconds. different conky so I still have the other one.


    I have something similar in and older conky - must go looking.

    Anyway, thank you so much, Sector11 and Stinkeye!!

    I'm going to read up more on the config parts, since theres a few things I don't need/understand from this conky, but it's finally up and running!! (Is there a good page somewhere which explains these functions in simple language a noob like me can understand? I have NO programming experience.)

    Thanks so much!

    sincerely,

    Michelle

    Question Re: Post your .conkyrc files w/ screenshots

    Hmmm, I just noticed something a bit odd; my wallpaper has turned completely black, except for an inch wide margin at the bottom.



    What happened?

    I tried re-installing my wallpaper from the settings box, but it didn't work. Why doesn't conky like my wallpaper? It's not that bad, honest!

    Re: Post your .conkyrc files w/ screenshots

    Hey folks! I am slowly but surely learning a thing or two about conky and I'm loving it. My current issue is this-- I have recently configured the v9000 lua from MrPeachy onto my laptop and went through all the steps of filling in the proper information in all the files. Now the issue arises that when I start it in a terminal I receive this script -->

    Code:
    Conky: desktop window (1600095) is subwindow of root window (a6)
    Conky: window type - normal
    Conky: drawing to created window (0x3c00001)
    Conky: drawing to double buffer

    Now as you will see in the screen shot I provide that the only thing appear on my desktop is a faint box outline on the bottom left of my screen. If anybody has an idea on how to help or can tell me how I'm a complete failure right now I'd be more than appreciative . If you are willing to help and need more info from me just ask.
