    One was huge and i just broke it up into two as it wasn't finished and looked horrible!

    however, once i took the conkyforecast section out of it and popped it into it's own conky .... Well you be the judge ...


    everything to the left of the weather is one conky ... And not a single ${voffset} in the box.

    Now another one i found was 'basically' what you see on the extreme left. I did some quik editing and changed the font to my favourite mono font today: Monofur.

    I changed the | _ - and + for the ascii stuff:
    Code:
    ╔ ═ ╦ ═ ╗   ┌ ─ ┬ ─ ┐
    
    ║   ║   ║   │   │   │
    
    ╠ ═ ╬ ═ ╣   ├ ─ ┼ ─ ┤ 
    
    ║   ║   ║   │   │   │
    
    ╚ ═ ╩ ═ ╝   └ ─ ┴ ─ ┘
    
    ╔═╦═╗   ┌─┬─┐
    ║ ║ ║   │ │ │
    ╠═╬═╣   ├─┼─┤ 
    ║ ║ ║   │ │ │
    ╚═╩═╝   └─┴─┘
    and i'm really impressed with how monofur used those: 8)


    an old style
    with a new look!

    edit: I think i have an old stinkeye conky here, i should go digging...
    Reminds me of the pictures we used to make on typewriters, remember those things?

    Re: Post your .conkyrc files w/ screenshots

    Newb question of the day that is perhaps out of place here but seems to be the only active conky discussion.

    I'm a few years linux removed and making an attempt to go full time on it. Using Linux Mint 14, just spent almost half a day getting Conky up.

    Is their anything specific to Ubuntu regarding conky that I'm going to screw up trying to beautify it using scripts here? Nemo VS Nautilus type thing?

    Cheers.

    Not really...

    Maybe some spacing and alignment issues, depending on the fonts that you've installed, but that applies across the board, to all OSs/DEs.

    The most problematic desktops I've run across are E17 and LXDE, but you weren't asking about them.

    Anyway, I cannot remember having to do anything special with Ubu...

    Not on typewriters but a big yes on the old BBS's in the 80's and 90's - as well as ANSI art.

    I tried Conky using Cinnamon on Ubuntu (which used Nemo) and Conky worked fine. Again some minor tweaks may be needed, but nothing that would present any real problem.

    Don't think I'll be using ascii or ansi art any time soon in my Conky , but you did inspire me to update my terminal.

    You use SS64 to huh.
    That looks well ... at the risk of sounding mundane: awesome!

    My prompt is dull,
    the time changes and the directory I'm in changes.

    Code:
     sector11 @ sector11
     04 Feb 13 | 23:24:19 ~
             $ 
     sector11 @ sector11
     04 Feb 13 | 23:24:40 ~
             $ cd /media/5/Conky/PetroDawg

    Can anyone recommend me a nice full-screen conky?

    I like lots of info.

    Check out The Galleries at Conky PitStop in my sig. Or the Conky section on Deviant Art.

    Re: Post your .conkyrc files w/ screenshots

    A new weather conky with an old favourite; conkyForecast.

    For years I have known about the '--night' option, never really used it before now.


    Some things explained. While developing this (killing and restarting conky a lot) I did not force a cache '--refresh' so as to use the info that was here locally as much as possible, no sense in flooding weather·com with requests for weather in the development stage. After all this is now working free. This morning with I booted up I saw there were some errors, I has forgotten to add the '--refetch' option to the command to get the weather:
    Code:
    ${execpi 1800 conkyForecast --refetch --hideunits --template=/media/5/Conky/templates/cF-2013.template}

    1. Under NOW - 1019.0 = barometer and the 2 is the UV index
    Below that is a small 'steady' pretty self explanatory.

    2. Under 'steady' is the wind direction ENE and 10km/h - I'm not showing units because this is my conky I know the units it's using (km/h | °C | etc).

    3. Under Forecast and Tonight are the forecast high and low temperatures for today and that sequence is repeated with the temperatures in the lower portion of the forecast. I have put them closer to the centre, in the lower section, as I plan on adding the sunrise and sunset time in there as well

    4. Drawn first the VSIDO orb sits behind the 'moon' as it shows it's phases. The orb will not be seen during a full moon and will be 100% visible during a new moon, this Sunday.

    5. I am using ${if_match} statements to get rid of displays of 'N/A' and or '0%' with the 'chance of precipitation' option. I picked up that little gem from PetroDawg just recently. Thanks PetroDawg. I'm using ${if_match} in other places as well.

    6. On the left is last nights capture. Notice the line:

    Code:
    Sunrise 06.19   08:09:44   Sunset 19:55
    While sunrise and sunset are true conkyForecast options, that number in the middle is using a program that comes with conkyForecast; conkyForecast-SunsetSunriseCountdown.py. It calculates the time left to sundown or sunrise, whichever is coming next. It's grey because the sun has set and will rise in 8 hours 9 minutes and 44 seconds.

    Some may argue that it should be yellow to indicate that the sun will rise in that time. That's an option too, I chose to indicate the sun's position with the colour not the action that will happen. As you see in this mornings shot on the right, there is 10:22:26 left before sunset, the yellow indicating the sun is up.

    Not finished yet, still have some things I want to do.

    Oh yea, I added my OpenBox menu in there just to find out. Optical illusion - does it seem to get narrower at the bottom?
