    @Bruce M.

    Pleasure, that pic gives me an idea about how to layout basic info about all the other pc's on my network, lots more changes now.

    I did the tab thing with the topN process counters in my script except I used the ${alignr TAB} to get things at the right position, that is left right aligned spreadsheet like text.

    Post is here http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...02#post5123402, The drive listings are also a good example of using tabbed right alignment.

    I have redesigned my conky with the GOTO X command and now I see I missed this TAB thing .... ooooh dear .... back to the design table.

    YES! I like it!

    Re: Post your .conkyrc files w/ screenshots

    I have a question:

    I've had a look at the commands and haven't figured out if there's a way to show your External IP adresss. Found the Internal IP address of my NIC, but not external IP.

    Is there a command to show your external IP?

    Also, I've noticed that when I logon conky starts before my gnome menu bars/panels (top and bottom) show and is aligned to the desktop before they show and the top line ends up underneath the menu bar/panel. If I terminate the process and restart it, it aligns below the menu bars/panels.

    Any idea on how to fix it so that it aligns properly on startup or loads after the gnome menu bars/panels?

    I don't know a thing about .conkyrc. Please guide me in an appropriate direction maybe something like a guide.

    External IP: You could use a bash script to ping your router or wherever to get your external ip and then just cut out the address.

    To start conky use a command like this: "sleep 20 && conky -c .configFileName"
    That will sleep for 20 seconds and then start conky.

    I found problems trying to place conky outside the borders of the screen or over panels so maby place conky a bit lower than 10, maby 26:
    gap_x 4
    gap_y 26

    Check if using window type override helps:
    own_window_type override

    This guide should still be useful:

    Ok, almost perfect. It now appears below the gnome menu bar/panel upon logon, however now it appears over every window. If I terminate the process and restart it, it no longer appears over every window. I want it to only appear on the desktop upon logon.

    I'll have to play around to find out how to ping my router to find my external IP. I was hoping there was a command similar to $addr in conky that would list my external IP as that one shows my internal IP.

    This is what I have for the window settings, it works just like you want.
    background yes
    own_window yes
    own_window_type override
    own_window_transparent yes
    own_window_colour black
    double_buffer yes
