    for pasting in other peoples configs and run that config in the terminal for error checking.

    I now use one variation of the script to run my democonkyrc in terminal
    and another variation to toggle some conkys I use off and on.
    eg I have separate conkys to display three different surfcam locations and
    another conky which shows a slideshow of pics from the cams for the last hour.

    Another conky wgets an image of a 7 day forecast but doesn't blend in well
    with the desktop so I wanted to be able to toggle it off and on.
    I can now do this from a .desktop launcher in unity.

    Simple question to which I can't find an answer to, how to I shuffle my text over to the right so I can have it to the side of a picture?

    Funny, I found a link just after I posted this, {offset} is the key to my solution Silly me

    Dunno, it shouldn't at first glance - IIRC arclance@ is an expert about memory leaks.

    DUH! Sometimes I'm slow. But it stems, in this case, from no knowledge of Unity and my DUHness. I though you were "running" the conky in a terminal.

    It's a script to "start" the conky in a terminal. OK got it now.

    I just open a terminal paste that top line I talked about earlier.

    We each have our ways, and sometimes it is dictated by the "software" we use. Unity vs OpenBox vs FluxBox vs GNOME3 vs XFCE4 vs Mate vs KDE vs Windows vs Mac

    I have a few that I open in a window, I look at them and close them.


    I have the same problem I have some conkys - I want the information but I don't want to see them all the time - they auto start on desktop 2 and stay there. Two of them have really LONG update intervals:
    Code:
    update_interval 42300
    - once a day - like my little calendar that uses "remind" and a text file of TV shows.

    What conky needs is a new optional update command:
    Code:
    #update_interval 42300
    update_at 00:00:00

    I haven't tried it, but could you set up an if_match command to invoke a bash script and restart conky at a specific time? Such as...

    Code:
    ${if_match "${execi 60 date +$H:%M}" ==  "08:30"} ${exec ~/myfilepath/restart.sh} ${endif}
    I'm sure my syntax is terrible, but hopefully you get the idea.

    Restarting conky should have everything update.

    My newest theme for Peachy's Interactive conky script.


    Still a work in progress, but close to completion.

    No the "update_interval" is above TEXT.

    It would defeat the purpose to have an "exec" command running every 30 seconds to check to see it it was a specific time. when the purpose of the
    Code:
    update_interval 42300
    is to have conky only update once every 24 hours, therefore not using any resources.

    Why not then, instead of using a long update_interval, just use change all your executes to execi 42300? I doubt it would use much in the way of resources just updating text, especially if exec commands are being executed only once per day. Except, of course, the one command checking the time.

    I think the restart idea would be useful in updating the weather or calendar conky at midnight, so that the proper days are always shown once the date changes.

    I'm slow so there might be an obvious reason why this isn't an acceptable solution, but if the idea is to automatically update the conky once a day why not run the kill then restart script as a cron job?

    @ Petro Dawg & GrouchyGaijin

    I get up between 7:30 and 9 in the morning, five out of seven days a week I am in bed before midnight, I turn my computer off when I go to bed.

    And if I am up at midnight and NEED to see what's changed, a double-left click on tint2's clock, does a ssc.sh.

    Code:
    clock_rclick_command = /media/5/Conky/OBMenuS/S11_T2_SSC.sh
    clock_lclick_command = ~/bin/kfc.sh
    I have various ssc.sh files.

    Code:
       #!/bin/bash
       # click to start, click to stop
    
    if pidof conky | grep [0-9] > /dev/null
      then
    	exec killall conky
