    That's really cool how you did Audacious and the time in the bottom corners. I might make a second script for some variables that I couldn't fit into my first script.

    Thanks, those 2 conky configs down at the bottom corners work well w/ AWNs transparent bar along the bottom of my screen. No icons can be placed lower than my trash icon and temp folder due to the AWN transparent bar, so it works well since conky tends to cover up any icons it's placed over. I actually have /media drives under my main conky in the top right corner of my desktop. =] I expect to play w/ conky alot more, eventually find a small spot to keep the top cpu/mem processes, but I'm having issues w/ limiting the length of processes (character wise) so it's either screwing up alignment or pushing conky too far into my desktop for my liking.

    You need to set up lm-sensors in order to get the CPU temp/motherboard/fan/etc.

    And in case you're wondering...my hard drive's not 5GB, that's just my / partition

    If you look at my .conkyrc, I had the same problem with application names being too long because of the font I used, so I took the PID numbers off, and then made it so that my names were above the top mem, and top cpus processes, so now, even the longest application name could be written in full without moving the mem and cpu stats off screen.

    I had found that in the original default .conkyrc's font and settings that I installed with, that the names bounced the stats around so it was difficult to read. So I made it my own way and fixed my problem.

    My cpu and mem stats are now in the lines below the name (numbered), and always stay in the same place. It's even easier now because if I look at Firefox, the stat I'm looking for is directly below it, in a column. I have my top memory stats up top near my RAM, cached mem, and swap, and then I have my cpu down under my cpu graph, temp, and clocked speeds of cpu.

    For example: Look at my number 2.) mem process. It's xfce4-screensho, that name would of bounced my stats out of the column and off the screen using the old way, but written like this:

    Code:
      2.)  ${top_mem name 2}
    mem %${offset 18}${top_mem mem 2}${offset 31}${alignc}cpu %${alignr 24}${top_mem cpu 2}
    ...I am able to read my stats in a perfect column under my app name.


    As for my next script (like your multiple scripts), I'm trying to find out info about the tcp_portmon. I want to find out about the bit torrent settings and maybe make a separate conky file for just the bit torrent ports. Or maybe I'll do something else. I haven't used bit torrent on my xubuntu yet, but I'm planning on making the switch form my Xp's utorrent soon, I just have my utorrent on Windows super fast with my TCPsys patched and configured with a TCP/IP optimizer and I'm trying to find out how to have as fast of a torrent in Linux, then I'll put my stats on my desktop, using a conky script.

    Re: Post your .conkyrc files w/ screenshots

    i posted his once, can onyone answer please or at least inform me if anyone else is using fiesty and conky and desktop effects??

    does anyone know why or if conky will work with using Fiesty and enabling the Desktop Effects (ie beryl or compiz or whatever is built into fiesty under system, preferences) I have a .conkyrc file that was working but as soon as I enabled the desktop effects it doesn't show up anymore and I even still have conky in my session startup programs. also, can anyone point me to a good tuturial about editing the colors, font, and adding more hard drives gauges. I have 5 total hardd drives totaling 1.52 TB. Thanks

    __________________
    I answered your question a couple of posts up, you will need to make sure your desktop effects are running before you start conky. Enabling your desktop effects after conky is already started will cover conky. You will need to make a startup script using the code in my post from earlier. Do you leave your desktop effects enabled 24/7 or do you only use them every so often? Compiz/Beryl will have to be started before conky everytime, or you will need to 'killall conky' and restart conky after you enable your Desktop effects.

    ${alignr}${nodename} | ${kernel} | cpu ${cpu}% ${acpitemp}C | ram ${memperc}% | Up ${upspeed eth1}k/s Down ${downspeed eth1}k/s
    On both of your scripts, you don't end your first font with a closing "${font}"

    On the first one, your code looks like this:

    Code:
    ${font Dejavu Sans:size=12}${time %b %d %y}${font Dejavu Sans:bold:size=20}${alignr}${time %l:%M %p}${font}
    I think it should look like this, all though it won't look aligned to the right, it will still be one part on the left side, and the last part aligned on the right side:

    Code:
    ${font Dejavu Sans:size=12}${time %b %d %y}${font}${alignr}${font Dejavu Sans:bold:size=20}${time %l:%M %p}${font}
    On your second one, your code looks like this:

    Code:
    ${font Dejavu Sans:size=12}${alignr}${time %b %d %y}${font Dejavu Sans:bold:size=20}${time %l:%M %p}${font}
    I think it should maybe look like this:

    Code:
    ${alignr}${font Dejavu Sans:size=12}${time %b %d %y}${font}${font Dejavu Sans:bold:size=20}${time %l:%M %p}${font}
    Try the second one (above this), with the ${alignr} starting it, first. That hopefully should work. The first one is not going to do what you want it to do, I just was showing where you need to close your font bracket at.
