    Conky seems to be very resilient to change.

    I'm running the same basic script(s) on a variety of rigs.


    Here's Gnome-Shell 3.8.0.1



    Dirty...



    The only problem I'm having, right now, is getting QDBus to work correctly with Guayadeque.

    Anyway, no reason to start_from_scratch, unless you're bored IMO...

    Re: Post your .conkyrc files w/ screenshots

    My laptop died earlier this year, and finally have a couple rigs (Dell Dimension 3000 and 3100) rebuilt from some retired machine shop computers donated to me from work. Got all the layers of grease and coolant scrubbed out and Xubuntu installed on one of them. Now its time to scour through this thread and find my previously posted scripts so I can re-write them for my "new" machine (kinda wish I backed those codes up now).

    Searching through this Mega thread is daunting.

    I'll get my new scripts posted once I develop something presentable. Watch out! I'm about to enter Conky addict mode again.

    OH OH! That's a bummer ... maybe I can get you started, check for a PM!

    Might be just as good to goto your profile and search your last posts.

    Forgot you sun I think. Here it is.

    Re: Post your .conkyrc files w/ screenshots

    Hey everybody! How's it going?

    I moved a while back and have no WiFi. Now able to use my phones 3G WiFi hotspot capability (slows things down a bunch).

    I'm currently using Xububtu 12.04 and cant find the startup editor so I can set up to start 15 seconds after startup. I'm currently having to type in "conky" every boot up in the terminal to get my conky to show, then I have to open up the "Desktop Settings" before it will go transparent.
    I would also like to move the three lines indicated to the right as far as possible.
    PS:
    Wow! There is quite a bit more that has evolved since I was last able to look in here.

    Well I got my Conky up and running, but sensors on this computer are compatible with lm-sensors it appears. No temp or fan speed available. Just using the Cairo dock applet for weather now to save some screen space on my tiny monitor.

    Did you make a conkystart.sh file in your home directory containing the following?

    Code:
    #!/bin/bash
    sleep 15 && conky
    Then make the file executable by right clicking and selecting properties and then permissions and selecting "allow to run as program" . Once you do that you should be able to add the path to the conkystart.sh file to your "Session and Startup" autostart applications.

    Works in Xubuntu12.10 anyways.

    To move the lines to the right add
    Code:
    ${alignr}
    before each line you want to move.

    That looks a lot better now that it doesn't stick out there funny.

    PS: Found this in my save folder I have on my Flash Drive:
    Code:
     #!/bin/bash
    
    j=1
    until $_DONE
    do
            if [ $(dbus-send --print-reply --type=method_call --dest=org.freedesktop.compiz /org/freedesktop/compiz/dbus/screen0 org.freedesktop.compiz.list 2>/dev/null | wc -l) -ne 0 ]
                    then _DONE=true
            elif [ $j -gt 6 ]
                    then _DONE=true
            else
                    _DONE=false
                    sleep 15
                    let $[++j]
            fi
    done
    
    SOURCE="${BASH_SOURCE[0]}"
    while [ -h "$SOURCE" ] ; do SOURCE="$(readlink "$SOURCE")"; done
    DIR="$( cd -P "$( dirname "$SOURCE" )" && pwd )"
    
    cd ${DIR} && conky -c ${DIR}"~.conkyrc"
    
    exit 1
    Will this work?

    Re: Post your .conkyrc files w/ screenshots

    Wow, had to change the following lines in my conky code which checked for system updates.

    Code:
    ${execp /usr/lib/update-notifier/apt-check --human-readable | awk '/can/ {print $1}'}   
    ${execp /usr/lib/update-notifier/apt-check --human-readable | awk '/are/ {print $1}'}
    apt-check uses more than 60% of my CPU, gotta get used to this old single core system. At least I'm seeing the inefficiency and bloat in my code now.

    changing to ${execi 3600 ...} should do the trick.

    Re: Post your .conkyrc files w/ screenshots

    Neither scripts worked.
    I ended up just puting in
    Code:
     conky -p 15
    where it asks for command. Works great now.


    PS: Thanks for the kick start for my brain. Totally forgot to look in the settings manager. Been a while since I last had to do this. Was in a Unity desktop with the settings manager option from right clickng gear/cog.
