    Re: Post your .conkyrc files w/ screenshots

    Hank,

    What version of Ubuntu are you using? "eth1" for wifi was introduced with 12.04 - previous versions used "wlan0". This might be worth a try. As MrPeachy says, check ifconfig to find out.

    It was 1.8.1-5 when I first installed 12.04, but it was upgraded to 1.8.1-6 in the repositories shortly after.

    Nice! Live and learn, eh? There's no mention of that in the man killall pages.

    Re: Post your .conkyrc files w/ screenshots

    I've found the easiest thing is to create the following script:

    #!/bin/bash
    #
    # This is a script which reboots conky.
    #
    killall conky
    conky -c ~/.conky/conkyrc
    #
    exit 0

    You can also use ${alignr xx} (where "xx" is a number) to specify distances from the right-hand margin. Useful if you want to show numbers with the decimal point in the same place.

    I did a clean install of 12.04 with Cinnamon from the same repository but without Muffin, and it works perfectly, just like your clip. I suggest you get rid of the muffin package.
