    Looks promising. I'll test it when I get on my laptop.

    Re: Conky GUI

    Thank you for your interest. Please post back with any comments or suggestions.

    I would prefer it if you do it through the sourceforge page, but if you don't have an account I guess this thread will serve the purpose.

    Re: Conky GUI

    I'm thinking about translating the application from java to another language. Which one do you think it will be better? c++/qt or python/gtk ?

    I thought about this because I was getting a lot of negative feedback about being written in java.

    I'll keep on working on the java version tho.

    Re: Conky GUI

    I think the majority of your responses will be to use Python/GTK. Though, you might be a little bit more comfortable with the C++ route considering you are transforming it from Java.

    In this case, it is all in what you're comfortable with.

    My vote, however, would be to do it in Python.

    Re: Conky GUI

    Wow that is pretty cool. I'll give it a try too tho i wonder who would want this as the whole fun of conky for me is messing with its configuration file directly, lol. Anyway it is a nice idea for an app and maybe it will make conky more usable for those who are not code monkeys. lmao.

    Hi.

    I downloaded the tar.gz file and extracted everything to my home folder but I don't know how to get it working and I can't see any instructions anywhere.

    Re: Conky GUI

    It has a file called conkygui.jar you should be able to just double click that file and it will run.

    If not right click the file and you should see an option that says "open with Sun Java 6 Runtime".

    Installation instructions are in the project website, which will be up shortly, I hope. Sourceforge is doing a migration of data and that or something else is giving hiccups to their servers, I already reported the problem with the project web site.

    Sorry for the inconvenience.
