    Agreed!

    I guess we all got a holiday, whether we wanted one or not.

    Re: HOWTO: VinDSL Conky Script

    Glad we're all back all up in here.

    Here's a shot of my Precise screen. (I love LTS versions ). Ironically all the music players Rhythmbox, Guayadeque, Banshee and VLC work great on the conky displaying the song title and band.
    On the developmental release, no matter which one it is; Saucy now and Raring when it was pre-release never displays anything but the band name without the song in the conky.

    But for some reason once it goes into final release it works like a champ.

    Precise works great.

    Re: HOWTO: VinDSL Conky Script

    New to this thread after a long time away. I'd have to agree that an update is in order. With some of the info on the first page now years out of date, I have difficulty knowing where to start, especially with the weather data changing so much over 108 pages.

    Is the ppa still recommended with Xubuntu 13.04?

    It looks okay on my laptop...


    The most recent copies of the scripts I could find were on page 68 or so. I chopped out the weather section for now. It was giving me XML errors and not displaying the large temp.

    Is there a painless way to make it so I can cycle desktops when the conky is the only space "open"?

    Try page 75. There is a post on that page where paramvir gives all the info you need. It is how I got the setup above. I made a couple of changes.
    Make sure you get version 0.9.3 of CONKYWX.
    Code:
    cavsfan@cavsfan-MS-7529:~$ conkywx

        Current version of conkywx on your system is: 0.9.3

    Found the problem. I've got at least 4 .conf files for conkywx. Not all of them had the location set correctly. Even though .conkyrc doesn't use them all, I thought it prudent to have them all pointing at the same place. Once I did, data came flowing in just fine.

    Now to figure out what to prune to make it fit my laptop.

    Re: HOWTO: VinDSL Conky Script

    Hello all! Read over a good chunk of the 108 pages (someone should update page 1 with new links) and have gotten this thing running about where I want it minus a few text tweaks here and there.

    That being said I am having a heck of a time getting my location's weather to display properly. It works just fine with the demo locations that are listed (Colville, Fairbanks, etc...) but when I try to add my location with or without the xml_ID, it just doesn't seem to be working properly. I get the temperature, feels like, conditions, etc... but not the high / low or chance of rain and I get 4 N/A's for the upcoming forecast.

    The location I am trying to use is:

    http://www.wunderground.com/q/zmw:98250.1.99999

    Over the course of testing I have also tried:

    #Location="http://www.wunderground.com/cgi-bin/findweather/getForecast?query=48.546%2C-123.008&sp=MSC02"
    #Location="http://www.wunderground.com/cgi-bin/findweather/getForecast?query=98250"
    #Location="http://www.wunderground.com/cgi-bin/findweather/getForecast?query=48.546%2C-123.008&sp=MSC02&MR=1"
    #Location="http://www.wunderground.com/cgi-bin/findweather/getForecast?query=48.52194595,-123.02416992"

    my xml_ID is set to MSC02, but I have also tried KWAFRIDA2 to no avail.

    Thanks for everyone's hard work on this already up to this point!

    I got the correct data with this one

    "http://www.wunderground.com/cgi-bin/findweather/getForecast?query=98250"

    Btw, which of the config files are you using?

    Greetings my Lord

    Yes and I am considering including this fabulous template as one of the templates in conkywx - but we all need to find that elusive time factor sorted out and of course the full inbox Vin has...

    Assuming your weather section in the conkyrc file looks something like below - you need to focus on editing the config file and template file specified in red.

    First sort out the Location - do not include the xml_ID - leave it commented out.

    Consider this - you say that the locations you had originally before you put your Location - it worked fine??? Go back to that state and then rework your changes.

    What version of conkywx are you running.

    The first page cannot be changed due to the forum rules in place

    Type conkywx at the terminal you will get a conkywx assistant menu - use option 2 to view the help wiki in your browser. The live version is being updated all the time and may not apply to your version.

    If all else fails - send me the debug information and the config and template files

    Code:
