    Re: Post your .conkyrc files w/ screenshots

    Just as stinkeye said, in unity/ubuntu 12.04 conky's panel mode is not fully effective. I like what sector11 is able to do with openbox but is there any way to solve this problem in unity?

    Re: Post your .conkyrc files w/ screenshots

    I've come back to fine-tuning my conky setup which has been working well for several months, and I'm trying to add in monitoring my trash file, and I have this stanza in it;-
    ${offset 240}TRASH: ${fs_free /home/boztu/.local/share/Trash/files}
    which gives a figure of 2.57G which is how much free is left on the main hard drive
    ${offset 240}TRASH: ${fs_size /home/boztu/.local/share/Trash/files}
    gives a figure of 287G, which is obviously wrong as the actual total is 3.2G.

    How then do I get the right figure please?

    Thanks
    Sharon.

    Hello everyone, i'm new to conky and i need a guide to setup a simple conky, or simply a conky config file, all i need is to show the processor activity and temp, network activity (down/up) and the weather. That's it

    If I use own_window_type panel I get the same results as sbjaved - maximized windows go under it. Maybe there is another setting I need for that to work right. Or at least like you have

    Could you post the top part of a conky that respects panels ... it will help with the elimination process.

    I've always used "margin settings" and windows can be dragged over those as well.

    @ sbjaved - ummmm install OpenBox! <<--- just joking. Wish I could help more.

    Trash is a strange animal. To the best of my knowledge it's part of the system - your trash is there, root's trash gets reported as well I believe. I too asked the same type of question a long time ago after I got lost with it.

    However a much wiser person than I, whom I don't recall, came up with this line:
    Code:
    Show IF there are files in Trash - ${execi 60 du -sh ~/.local/share/Trash/files/ | awk '{print $1}' | sed '/^4.0K/ d'  | sed 's/$/ of TRASH /'}
    It will tell you how much trash there is and if none, it shows nothing. Hope this helps:

    Check my signature for a guide to setting up conky

    A simple config file with what you want is not as simple as you think it is.

    Processor activity - single core? Dual core - quad or more?

    Temperatures - you need to install lm-sensors and hddtemp to start wilth and configure those to work with your system.

    Weather - You will need to install "curl" for this. Now, while conky has a native weather command to get weather from NOAA it's not the best and has it's problems. There are various scripts for weather, again see my signature for three, they need varing degrees (pardon the pun) of work on your part setting them up for your location:

    1. v9000 LUA - has a couple of working examples. Probably the most complicated - but worth the effort
    2. Teo's x4 Sites - has at least one working example for each of the 4 scripts, from simple to "The Weather Man"
    3. Arclance - and interactive weather using various sites to get all the possible info available. "The Super Weather Man"

    Network - ethX, wlanX ????

    I would suggest you start with:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install conky-all lm-sensors hddtemp curl
    Here is a "very basic conky" that makes two assumptions: your drive is /dev/sda and you use eth0
    Save it to: ~/.conkyrc once you have done the apt-get mentioned above.
    Code:
    # killall conky && conky -c ~/.conkyrc &

    Hi Sector11,

    In unity if
    Code:
    own_window_hints undecorated,below,sticky,skip_taskbar,skip_pager
    is commented out it defaults to above.

    If uncommented, own_window_type panel will use the below settings.

    So I can make the conky panel above or below for unmaximized windows
    while maximized windows observe the conky panels reserved area,
    whether or not own_window_hints is used.

    Don't think it's possible to do what sbjaved wants,
    which I think is reserve a screen area.

    Re: Post your .conkyrc files w/ screenshots

    Hi ho stinkeye... been a bit.

    Yea, not sure it's 100% doable anywhere. At least I have the "obconf" to set margins. and maximized windows respect those margins, even though I can stretch windows over those limits.

    Nothing like that in Unity?

    I'll have to run some test with what you gave me. Thank you.
    I'll post results - the good, the bad and/or the ugly.

    Thank you for your post, but it seems really difficult to config the weather and proc temp for now, i guess i have to study conky first to be able to do it
