    Re: Conky Pidgin Python Script

    Hello lurker man, and welcome to Linux =]

    I don't really know how to do it yet (and I'm not currently on my computer) but If you try to do it from terminal it might work...

    Look on to the output managing commands (eg grep), I remember that one of them show how many lines the output text has, that would be your total contacts, and with a filter to show only the online ones and the same command you can see the online only number =].

    That's a rough workaround, if Kaivalagi sees this post soon (or someone else with more knowledge than me) they might be able to help you better.

    Tell me if you get anything o/

    Re: Conky Pidgin Python Script

    I'm having an issue getting my alignment to display correctly.

    My conkyPidgin.template is:

    Code:
    [alias]${alignr}[status]
    However, it only aligns the first entry correctly, everything else is aligned right, like this:

    Code:
    UserName             Status
                 UserNameStatus
                 UserNameStatus
                 UserNameStatus
    My .conkyrc code is as follows:

    Code:
    ${execpi 60 conkyPidgin -o -s ALIAS --distinctalias -t ~/.config/conkyPidgin/conkyPidgin.template }
    Any ideas?

    Conky v1.8.1 has problems with spacing using ${goto xx} ${alignc} ${alignr} etc etc.

    If that's the problem the fix is to drop back to v1.8.0

    OR use hard spaces in your template.

    I had this same issue with the 1st contact.

    I prepended my call to conkyPidgin with an {alignr}, and also have the one within the template file- and it all lines up for me now.

    .conkyrc:
    ${alignr 20}${execpi 60 conkyPidgin ...

    Template file:
    [alias]${alignr 20}[status]

    Re: Conky Pidgin Python Script

    I've been having some fun with this and your other scripts
    Pushing my buddy list to the background is handy as heck!!

    One thing I have been trying to do though is to use the status text replacement options- and set a different color for each status.

    I've tried doing so with different string options right in the "execpi", and in the python script. Anything I try seems to break the script.

    I know I much be missing something fundamental here- but is there a way to set colors on the [status] using the status replacement strings?

    Thanks again!!
    Steve
