    From Buenos Aires:
    18:32 - last night - on the left it's running alone with just one other conky: a CPU usage checker - obviously between cycles.
    11:14 - today - on the right - night shadow moved nicely ... cloud change very noticeable as well.

    Took a long time the clouds kept getting in the way, final tweaks at night where the clear sky allowed the + to be moved over the city lights.

    Thank you guys, interesting conky indeed. Tokyo just changed date!
    That's pretty cool. Just out of curiosity, what exactly is the weather condition "fine"?
    Who's Awesome? You're Awesome.

    Well, you have to think it's translated from Chinese, the weather site is The Hong Kong Observatory. So "fine" - would be somewhere between "Bright" that I saw for Vancouver yesterday and cloudy/rain etc - maybe "Fair".

    Pretty cool ... I've been taking screenshots all day to watch the "night" move across the world ... now that's neat:

    Looks like the site told a little white lie, the clouds only changed once all day! (between 10 and 11)

    13 conkys running, claws open and iceweasel with three tabs - CPU Average: 12% NOT BAD!!!!

    Re: Post your .conkyrc files w/ screenshots

    Set up my .conkyrc and the conky.lua in .conky folder in a new install of a 64 bit Lubuntu 12.04 LTS after updating and upgrading.
    Typed in:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install conky-all
    I then ran conky after reboot, but got this:
    Code:
    andyopie150@Dell-OptiPlex-GX620DT:~$ conky
    WARNING: gnome-keyring:: couldn't connect to: /tmp/keyring-e3xI0k/pkcs11: No such file or directory
    Conky: desktop window (1a00102) is subwindow of root window (d6)
    Conky: window type - override
    Conky: drawing to created window (0x2a00001)
    Conky: drawing to double buffer
    Conky: Unable to load image '/home/andyopie150/.conky/new-ubuntu-logo.png'
    How do I resolve the gnome-keyring problem?

    PS: This is AndyOpie150, but I had a problem with new login a while back and no time to deal with it, so I created a new account.

    Great work! Something tells me you're not quite done with it, but still it is AWESOME!
    What's a landing but a take off in reverse?

    Yea, it's missing something ... not sure ...

    Also room for a couple of other cities. Africa is pretty bare ... and if the clouds would clear out of the London sky I'd put London in.
    Thanks for your help.

    I wouldn't worry about it ... it's hit a lot of people. I don't use it so I deleted gnome-keyring. WARNING: Check first

    Also you need to move the image into the correct path OR change the path of the image.

    Do a search: "gnome-keyring:: couldn't connect to:" lots of answers for different situations.

    Okie Dokie. The 64 bit Lubuntu 12.04 LTS was too buggy on my old 64 bit Dell desktop, so I decided to try Linux Mint 15 64 bit. Way better than Lubuntu. Smooth and fast.
    I wouldn't think it will be any different setting up Conky???

    Thanks for advice.

    Well, yes it probably will be a 'bit' different. The basics will be the same just some tweaks to do because of which WM or DE you are using.

    Which Linux Mint 15 did you install?
    • Linux Mint 15 Olivia -> Featuring Cinnamon 1.8 and MATE 1.6!
    • Linux Mint 15 Xfce -> Featuring Whisker Menu and Xfce 4.10!

    I'm going to rule out the KDE version as you said "old" ...

    Since your new with MINT did you look at CrunchBang?
    That would be smoother and faster I think - but you have to like OpenBox

    If you try a "*Box" and like it ... you'll never go back to a DE again - at least that's what I was told 4 years ago and it's proving correct.

    OpenBox is a WindowManager - lighter and faster than Desktop Managers (Gnome, Xfce4, KDE, Unity Mate etc.)

    Re: Post your .conkyrc files w/ screenshots

    64 bit Linux Mint 15 Mate.
    Checked over at the Mint forum (didn't know if I could post questions about Mint here).
    Made a start-conky.sh file with the needed info inside using Geany. Named the startup to "Conky", with the command being:
    Code:
    /home/andyopie150/start-conky.sh
    Comment was: A System Monitor For X.

    Had to go back and check the "Allow executing file as progam" box in the new start-conky.sh file, but now it boots up after my specified 20 seconds.Screenshot.png

    PS: I was thinking about trying Crunch Bang now that I've got a 64bit system, I just happen to have had a Mint 15 that I burned to a CD to install on a friends computer. I'm on the slowest internet on the planet right now, so I will need to download Crunch Bang via the phone and a faster internet like at the Library.
    I do have another 80GB SATA hard drive with Windows XP Professional on it. Plenty of Room (I only need 35GB for the Windows partition).

    This box is pretty cool considering I pieced it together from 4 none working towers in various states of disrepare and cannibalizm (given to me free).
    Dell Optiplex GX620DT with a really good BIOS. A mother board with a 3.392GHz dual core Pentium 4, 1GB of RAM expandable to 4GB (first chance I get), two 80GB hard drives, CD + DVD writer, floppy disk drive (currently not hooked up), and an amazing old 16 inch SONY Trinitron monitor that looks better than the LCD screen on the All in one Desktop. I like it even better than the new monitors, well, all except the size. The monitor is Huge and weighs about 30 pounds or more, but I wouldn't trade it for anything.

    @ Andy Browning

    I'm sorry, cellphone faster internet connection that the computer. That's funny ... in a "I don't believe it" kind of way.

    Well done. I think you'd find #! quite perky on that machine.

    floppy disk drive (currently not hooked up)
    Why bother...

    Sound like you have 55GB to play with for #!

    15GB for /
    40GB for /home

    Not too bad.

    Any USB ports? If not you'll need a DVD for #!
