    The "Playback position not available" is a known issue, it happens when the script is half way through determining all the details for a song, and the song changes. I am not sure why the "SU: not found" error is occuring. I assume you are getting conky output for your songs?

    If conky is started in a session instead, you wont get bombarded with these error messages...as there is no originating terminal window for the script.

    I could remove the error messages altogether, but in doing so will also remove the messages that need to be displayed if there is a real problem.

    At some point in the week I'll have a look and see what I can do...

    Eh, leave the error. I'll just reboot and that will fix that part.

    I'm not sure why I have the sh:su error either. This is my conkyrc and the error I'm getting. I've posted that I do have an error with your gcal as well.

    The su error is from your calendar script I think, I recall it being mentioned on the conkyrc thread before now...I don't use it my self so I don't know the solution, but I think there is one

    I've replied to your post on the gcal thread

    Nevermind... I took away my code part by part and I see the sh: Su: issue is with my little calendar script, not with Rhythmbox or gcal.

    But for what it's worth, the playback position error is not throwing.

    Also, is there a way to draw a progress bar for playback rather than the numbers?

    yep, I use the percent position output with the execibar, like so:
    Code:
    ${execibar 1 conkyRhythmbox --datatype=PP}
    execbar doesn't behave properly, so execibar 1 is used instead...

    Would it be possible to pipe the album art somehow?

    Re: Conky Rhythmbox Python Script

    How does this perform when listening to radio? I'm using rhythmbox-client at the moment and when listening to the radio I get a blank artist and the title is the station name, even when Rhythmbox knows the actual song artist and title and artist and is showing them in the title bar.

    Never tried using radio with this script

    If rhythmbox provides all radio based info in the title then that's where it will come from...

    Does my script not display this info?

    Re: Conky Rhythmbox Python Script

    I tried using this when listening to the radio and I get this output for anything:
    Code:
    ERROR: Issue calling the dbus service:float division
    Unknown
    That's with errors disabled. With errors enabled:
    Code:
    ERROR: Issue calling the dbus service:float division
    ERROR: Issue calling the dbus service:float division
    rhythmbox-client gives a blank artist and the radio station as the title.
