    Re: Post your .conkyrc files w/ screenshots

    Hello again,
    I did a new install of Xubuntu Precise on my primary computer. I didn't like unity, gnome fallback, mate or cinnamon because of the lack of customization options for the windows, and I got tired of fighting compiz. So I decided to redo my conky. This is just a preview.
    With conky running and without. Stay tuned.....more to come.

    very nice stylintile
    are thise boxes drawn in lua or are they images?

    how about using an interactive conky script to make that middle silver "ubuntu" box a button to open and close the conky?

    Re: Post your .conkyrc files w/ screenshots

    Hmmmm, definitely a thought. So far I have been working on learning the basic stuff in lua, and not following the "interactive trails" yet. Maybe it's time I did.

    And yes, I drew the frames one line at a time (and one rectangle) in the lua script. I try not to use images in my conky because it's more fun to draw it with cairo.
    And, it helps me learn and remember the commands and functions.

    Variable execbar and it might work if i would try it but AFAIK it's better to avoid "exec" variables in conky. I will rather use numerical representation because of that.
    OK i thought i will at least test it but i need some help.

    Code:
    ...
    default_bar_size 100 10
    TEXT
    ${execibar 5}
    ${downspeed}
    ...
    Is there a way to use downspeed variable and use math operations on it to get percentage and then feed that value to execibar variable?

    conky question (Non Ubuntu)

    I am a hat user, not Ubuntu but since it seems as if 95% of conky users are either on Ubuntu or #! thought I would post my question here.

    System: Fedora 17 xfce spin on elderly Dell box.
    Using a very simple conkyrc with one local modification. Wanted to be able to display information about my mounted removable drives in real-time so hacked a simple (ugly) perl script to be called by conky function ${execp}
    Everything works as advertised with one exception. The last line is offset by one character and it is driving me nuts. (Just a bit OCD)

    Screenshot of the relevant portion of the conky window:


    The script used (I warned you it was ugly) follows and is called in the TEXT portion of conkyrc by ${execp drive-list}
    Code:
    #!/usr/bin/perl
    
    use warnings;
    
    my $directory = '/run/media/david';
    
    opendir(DIR,$directory);
    my @files =  grep { $_ ne '.' && $_ ne '..' } readdir(DIR);
    closedir(DIR);
    foreach(@files){
      
      print "$_", '${alignr}${fs_used /run/media/david/', "$_", '} / ${fs_size /run/media/david/', "$_", '}    ${alignr}${fs_free_perc /run/media/david/', "$_", '}% Free';
      print "\n";
    }
    If I copy the output of the script direct to conkyrc without using ${execp} it parses without the trailing space in the last line.
    Not a big deal, but the lack of symmetry makes me nuts.

    Any suggestions really appreciated. Let me know if any additional info would be helpful.
    TIA

    Thank You,
    I'm sure you recognize a lot of the code in my lua scripts. The majority was either written by you, or I got it from your Lua in Conky How To. So... a huge THANK YOU!!!

    Re: conky question (Non Ubuntu)

    I have to agree, that this may be the wrong place for this question. In order for the conky experts to be able to help the op, this question should be in the Conky thread, and has been.
