    conky issues

    I'm trying to install conky on 12.04, and i followed this guide:

    http://www.quicktweaks.com/2008/09/2...buntu-desktop/

    when i try to run it from the terminal i get this output:

    Code:
    michael@michael-Presario-CQ56-Notebook-PC:~$ conky
    Conky: /home/michael/.conkyrc: 14: no such configuration: 'border_margin'
    Conky: desktop window (1600095) is subwindow of root window (af)
    Conky: window type - override
    Conky: drawing to created window (0x3800001)
    Conky: drawing to double buffer
    Segmentation fault (core dumped)
    any ideas as to what i have done wrong??

    can you post the contents of your .conkyrc file???

    I am running Conky on 12.04 with no problems....see the screen shot below...there are 2 different Conkys running concurrently...1 for my sys mon & 1 for my local WX ...

    i tried changing the values of this line:

    Code:
    minimum_size 250 600
    maximum_width 250
    but it did't do anything.

    Re: conky issues

    it looks like you have the max width set to the same size as the min width of 250...
    try changing the max width var to a larger size...the vars are in pixels, so it may not look like it changes much unless you choose a large number...

    if you want to change both x & y, then change the minimum sizes....x is 1st, then y
    in your code above x= 250 pixels & y= 600 pixels.....

    go here for a complete list of Conky vars:
