    Re: Post your .conkyrc files w/ screenshots

    I'm trying to build a nice Ubuntu Minimal CD Karmic install with a standalone Compiz-Fusion and a nice Conky desktop. I'll be posting my progress as I come along.
    Laptop: i7 4800MQ 2.7GHz (~3.7GHz); 2x 4GB Kingston HyperX Genesis 1600MHz; Nvidia 780M 4GB; Crucial M4 256GB SSD; Ubuntu 14.04 LTS x64 and Windows 8.1 x64.
    Ubuntu #8076 / Linux #429448

    Re: Post your .conkyrc files w/ screenshots

    please forgive me, I can't remember how to do something and it's making me feel like a newbie.

    I'm trying to get Disc temp using the following command in Conky

    Code:
    ${exec hddtemp /dev/sda | cut -c 34-40}
    when I run conky from the terminal it gives this error,

    Code:
    /dev/sda: open: Permission denied
    I know it needs to be done as "Sudo" user, but cannot remember the way to do it.

    Any ideas????

    sudo dpkg-reconfigure hddtemp or sudo chmod u+s /usr/sbin/hddtemp
    and restart session

    No need for sudo hacks
    Code:
    ${hddtemp /dev/sda}

    Thanks. What I really wanted to do was to draw the whole ubuntu logo using conky/scripts. I quickly realized I was in over my head though, mostly because of the little circles from the logo that would have to intersect the graphs and have transparent space around them.

    I've made a few small adjustments that improve the visual quality but I won't bother posting them as the core of my conky is the same.
