    Yeah, I understand that, but using {goto} will align the text on the left, not the right. And I'm still not getting why, once it's right-aligned to a certain point, it doesn't jolly well stay there!

    Oh well. I might have to find a compromise somehow.

    Re: Post your .conkyrc files w/ screenshots

    I think I may have found the problem; there was a stray ${font} command lurking in the top line. Apparently the ${alignr} command is dependent on font size, so that must have been messing with it somehow.

    Edit: Yep, five minutes later, and everything's lined up like soldiers on parade. Although all that jiggering about somehow moved my album art 8 pixels to the left!

    Re: Post your .conkyrc files w/ screenshots

    Thought I might post this for those using unity to show how to use
    Unity launcher quicklists to control and edit your conkys.

    Save as Conky.desktop to ~/.local/share/applications


    Code:
    #!/usr/bin/env xdg-open
    
    [Desktop Entry]
    Version=1.0
    Type=Application
    Terminal=false
    Exec=/home/glen/conky/toggleconky
    Name=Conky
    Icon=/home/glen/Pictures/letter-c.png
    Comment=Toggle conky on/off
    
    Actions=edit-demo;run-demo;edit-conkyrc
    
    [Desktop Action edit-demo]
    Name=Edit demo-conkyrc
    Exec=gedit /home/glen/conky/configs/demo-conkyrc
    OnlyShowIn=Unity;
    
    [Desktop Action run-demo]
    Name=Run demo-conkyrc
    Exec=conky -c /home/glen/conky/configs/demo-conkyrc
    OnlyShowIn=Unity;
    
    [Desktop Action edit-conkyrc]
    Name=Edit All Configs

    OnlyShowIn=Unity;
    To edit for your setup and paths (must use full paths in the .desktop file, not the ~ symbol)...
    Code:
    gedit ~/.local/share/applications/Conky.desktop
    Explanation
    #!/usr/bin/env xdg-open

    [Desktop Entry]
    Version=1.0
    Type=Application
    Terminal=false
    Exec=/home/glen/conky/toggleconky #points to a toggleconky on/off script. Run with left or middle click.
    Name=Conky
    Icon=/home/glen/Pictures/letter-c.png #Find icon with google image search
    Comment=Toggle conky on/off

    Actions=edit-demo;run-demo;edit-conkyrc #Sets actions to use in the right click quicklist menu.

    [Desktop Action edit-demo] #Use the same name as above
    Name=Edit demo-conkyrc #Item name shown in quicklist...whatever you like.
    Exec=gedit /home/glen/conky/configs/demo-conkyrc #Opens a specific config in gedit for pasting in configs for testing
    OnlyShowIn=Unity;

    [Desktop Action run-demo]
    Name=Run demo-conkyrc

    OnlyShowIn=Unity;
    Sample toggleconky script
    Code:
    #!/bin/bash
    
    # click to start, click to stop
    # if pgrep conky; then pkill conky; else conky; fi
    if pidof conky | grep [0-9] > /dev/null
    then
           exec killall conky 
    else
    	conky -c ~/conky/configs/timer-conkyrc &
    	conky -c ~/conky/configs/cal-conkyrc &
    	conky -c /home/glen/conky/configs/release.conkyrc &
    fi

    Grab a handkerchief and have a look at this section.
    Code:
    # Minimum size of text area
    minimum_size 1900 300
    minimum_width 1900
    maximum_width 1920
    There is no setting minimum_width

    Try fixing the width with...
    Code:
    minimum_size 1900 300
    maximum_width 1900

    Yeah, I'm not sure what I was thinking with that. I've taken that line out, and nothing drastic has occurred.

    Still hasn't stopped those two objects (upspeed and downspeed) jumping around, though. I'll try changing them to monospace fonts (as suggested earlier) and see if that helps.

    Re: Post your .conkyrc files w/ screenshots

    I've got it! Because alignr is dependent on font size/width, the upspeed and downspeed readouts move position whenever the numbers for totalup and totaldown change!

    I worked that out when I swapped UPLOAD SPEED/DOWNLOAD SPEED and UPLOADED/DOWNLOADED around to see if that would change things. It only made it worse, because the UPLOAD SPEED/DOWNLOAD SPEED numbers were contantly changing, thus causing the UPLOADED/DOWNLOADED numbers to move around all the time.

    Question Re: Post your .conkyrc files w/ screenshots

    Hello all!

    I am trying to get my Google Calendar to display on my desktop using Conky, however it is only displaying my calendar partially. I am running Ubuntu 12.10 with Xfce 4.10 desktop environment.

    Here is my current conkyrc file:

    Code:
    alignment top_right
    background no
    border_width 0
    cpu_avg_samples 2
    default_color white
    default_outline_color white
    default_shade_color white
    draw_borders no
    draw_graph_borders yes
    draw_outline no
    draw_shades no
    use_xft yes
    xftfont DejaVu Sans Mono:size=10
    gap_x 5
    gap_y 60
    minimum_size 5 5
    net_avg_samples 2
    double_buffer yes
    out_to_console no
    out_to_stderr no
    extra_newline no
    own_window yes
    own_window_class Conky
    own_window_type override
    own_window_transparent yes
    own_window_hints undecorated,below,sticky,skip_taskbar,skip_pager
    stippled_borders 0
    update_interval 1.0
    uppercase no
    use_spacer none
    show_graph_scale no
    show_graph_range no
    text_buffer_size 8096
    
    TEXT
    ${execi 300 gcalcli --nc --cals=owner calw 4}
    Note: When I run Conky, I get the following output in my terminal:

    Code:
    Conky: desktop window (e00003) is subwindow of root window (dc)
    Conky: window type - override
    Conky: drawing to created window (0x4200001)
    Conky: drawing to double buffer
    Traceback (most recent call last):

        gcal.CalQuery(args[0], count=int(args[1]))
      File "/usr/bin/gcalcli", line 1011, in CalQuery

        sys.stdout.write(unicode(msg, 'UTF-8'))

    Much thanks!

    I've finally come up with a fix; I've given the upspeed and downspeed sections their own lines in conkyrc, and used voffset to move them up to where they need to be. It's dirty and ugly, but it works.

    Another fix would have been using a monospace font, but I couldn't find one I liked. They're all so dull!

    Cool idea. Thanks for sharing. I have a question though, does the toggle script allow you to kill the conkies one at a time or is it all or nothing?
    Thank you,
