View Full Version : [ubuntu] Conky HDD Temp Issue

May 20th, 2009, 10:26 PM
Hello All,
I wanted to change the look/style of my conky configuration and liked what I found here: http://www.quicktweaks.com/2008/09/27/gmail-weather-beauty-right-on-your-ubuntu-desktop/ (http://www.quicktweaks.com/2008/09/27/gmail-weather-beauty-right-on-your-ubuntu-desktop/)

I have everything working great to where I want it except the HDD temp. I get "localhost [] 7634 (?) : Connection refused" in the terminal when it is trying to grab the temp. I am guessing this is because it is not root because when I type sudo hddtemp /dev/sda I get /dev/sda: ST9320421AS: 33C

The script it runs contains this:
echo "$(nc localhost 7634 | cut -d'|' -f4)"

Is there any way I can fix this?

I have a daul hard drive setup in an ASUS g50vt-a2. None in RAID.
