    Animated image in conky (gif?)

    Is it true that conky can't display animated gifs?

    If so, is there anyway I can get an animated picture to show in conky? Maybe another file type (ideally one imagemagick can convert to).

    Thanks!

    I didn't think so, thats why I was hoping to look for a work around. I've been looking through those other forums to see if I can find anything. Nothing so far. Hopefully there are some other ideas out there.

    Have you tried with Cairo Lua?

    I doubt it works tho, seeing that the conky window's refresh rate is at least 1 second. I don't know if you can change it to fractions of a second. Even then it's just show the first frame of the gif.
