    What I see is that you have not specified an image to work with the -i should have [LCI] (which I think passes the setting from your conf file) rather than a number... at least on my setups! This...

    [other] Re: HOWTO: VinDSL Conky Script

    I think you'll find that the files you got from paramvir assumed you would be in the conkywx directory at the time of 'execution'. In the case of my own system, I copied the entire contents of...

    [ubuntu] Interpreting sensors output...

    Hopefully this is the right place to post this question. I finally got lm-sensors to work (with the new kernel - and distilling knowledge from a number of posts) - however - I find that I cannot be...

    THAT is the whole point of both conky and conkywx - complete flexibility! I have the 'show conky' (airplane cockpit) and a 'working conky' (which can be seen in a previous posting) and select them...

    [other] Re: HOWTO: VinDSL Conky Script

    A further thought - maybe I'll do a super Conky with everything - in a window that does NOT go on every desktop.... then I can swap workspaces when I need/want the rest....

    Now - how do I make it...

    Strangely enough, when the new one is running, the old one works again too! (on my 14.04 system anyway).

  11. [SOLVED] Re: Easier in bash, python, C ? Which is quickest?

  13. [SOLVED] Re: Easier in bash, python, C ? Which is quickest?

    Yup - never claimed any efficiencies in the coding! I see there are lots of neat features in that - but learning them (and realigning the brain to think in objects rather than event-driven) would...

  16. [SOLVED] Re: Easier in bash, python, C ? Which is quickest?

    Well - minimum would be about every 2 seconds, maximum would be once a second I suppose. It is not just the performance, it is that you get the whole python interpreter loaded - however small the...

    Well - I took another look at Python - and I just can't get my head around the weird ways it does things... some of them seem designed just to be different where no advantage is gained :)
