    So with that in mind I've started a new thread:

    HOW TO: A Beginners Guide to Setting up Conky

    And like I said there, I'm really hoping it stays a "1 post" thread, it doesn't talk about configuring the internal workings of conky. Simply a way to get it up and running. Leave configuring tips and tricks and screenshots here where there is lots of help.

    Take a look.

    Have a nice day

    Nice Guide Bruce. There is a new program called Conky GUI which you might want to take a look at. It's a bit raw a the moment but shows some promise.

    No problem, attached

    Call it without arguments to get just details in conky. Set it up in you browser to be associated with torrent files and it will add them for you, just make sure it's executable

    Hmmm! I don't know. I have bashrc aliases setup for editing my conkys:

    Code:
    # my aliases
    alias conke='(gedit ~/.startconky ~/Conky/conkymain ~/Conky/conkyforecast ~/Conky/conkyemail ~/Conky/fortune ~/Conky/scripts/SP_Forecast.py ~/Conky/scripts/EN_Forecast.py ~/Conky/scripts/mail/conkyEmail.py ~/Conky/scripts/myweather.template ~/Conky/scripts/argentina.template ~/Conky/scripts/otherweather.template &)'
    alias cia='killall conky && ./.startconky'
    alias killc='killall conky'
    alias stc='~/.startconky'
    I open a terminal type: conke and gedit opens with all my files ready to edit.

    After editing a few lines "cia" kills and restarts conky so I can see the changes. The last two either kill conky out right or start it from nothing.

    Took me a while to get here, but I'm comfortable with it. It reminds me of my days of writing .BAT file in DOS. Had over 200 of them at one time, looking after a multi-node Wildcat BBS and other things.

    I'm very comfortable with CLI. Not like when I first came here to Ubuntu.

    Have a nice day.

    PS: OK I'll look, but I make no promises.

    Well, I'm not so sure I'd go that far.

    After all, you're already there and I'm waving at you, so there isn't really a need to rub elbows.

    EDIT: I did download it ... looked "in" the archive, saw what it was going to install and deleted it.
    I'm sure it will be good for "new people" in the future, but I'm comfortable in my setup now.

    Not sure whether there is a suitable tool already available or not?

    The first thing that comes to mind is creating a simple php page and running it on the remote pc, then accessing the html output from it. I am not too familiar with /proc but somewhere in that pseudo-filesystem should be the details you're after. Alternately if you know of a CLI tool that would do the trick, let me know. I am looking at statgrab...

    This thread isn't really the place to discuss, PM me with details of the local and remote pc's such as os, what's services available etc and we can put some thought into it. Some Googling (is it a word yet ) should get us somewhere.

    Edit: See attached, if you run the php on the remote pc's web server you can retrieve cpu load info locally with a web call, you could just use wget in the CLI...PM me if you still need help

    Facebook notifications in Conky

    Here's a little something for the Facebookers.
    There's a command line interface available for Facebook called fbcmd(link); so far only a beta version of the script is available.
    It uses a command line PHP interpreter to get things done, so to get that, run the following command:
    Code:
    sudo aptitude install php5-cli
    To get the script, run these commands:
    Code:
    cd
    wget http://www.cs.ubc.ca/~davet/fbcmd/fbcmd-0-85.tgz
    tar zxvf fbcmd-0-85.tgz
    rm fbcmd-0-85.tgz
    Now that you have the script, you need to access Facebook with it.
    To do that, go to this link and follow the instructions to obtain an authorization code.
    Use the authorization code in the following command to allow fbcmd to access Facebook:
    Code:
    php ~/fbcmd/fbcmd.php AUTH <AUTHORIZATION_CODE>
    The script is now installed and ready for use.


    To get an output like this in your Conky,
    Code:
    1 unread messages
    3 pokes
    2 shares
    3 friend requests
    1 group invites
    1 event invites
    input the following in the TEXT section of your .conkyrc file:
    Code:
    ${texeci 1800 php ~/fbcmd/fbcmd.php NOTIFY &}
    The 1800 in this command makes Conky update every 1800 seconds(i.e. every half hour).
    There are other options available with this script; instead of NOTIFY in the above command,
    you can write STATUS to see your current status or RECENT 3 to see the 3 most recent status updates from your friends.

    Run the following command to see all the possible arguments for fbcmd:
    Code:
    php ~/fbcmd/fbcmd.php
