    You would save that as a bash script and call it from the .conkyrc
    We did edit that script quite a bit after ans originally posted it.
    You can download the newest version of it here.
    Just make sure it's executable with this:
    Code:
    chmod +x conkycal.sh
    and you call it from the .conkyrc like this:
    Code:
    ${execpi 3600 $HOME/conky/conkycal.sh}
    adjusting the path to point to wherever you put the script.
    You can change it to a vertical calendar by adding -v after the script like this:
    Code:
    ${execpi 3600 $HOME/conky/conkycal.sh -v}
    You can also download the optional language file here to add about 40 languages to the script. It only tries to load that file if it exists so you can totally ignore it.
    Here are screenshots of the calendar in vertical and horizontal modes:

    screenshot2010-06-21T19:38:23-0400.png

    The script should be pretty easy to adjust the colors how you want them, too. Make sure you set a mono-spaced font in the .conkyrc right before calling the script:
    Code:
    ${font monospace:size=10}
    or whatever other mono-spaced font you might have.

    You can also go to Conky PitStop listed in my sig for other scripts related to conky.

    Re: Post your .conkyrc files w/ screenshots

    So.....this isn't happening for me. I downloaded the newest version, made it exe, but from there it doesn't do what I want. I know I'll regret asking this but, Do I need script in the .conkyrc? It is blank at the moment. I'm trying to learn this conky stuff and I realize that I can just copy a conky file, and throw it in the .conkyrc, but at the moment I have no conky file in there.

    You don't put the script directly in the .conkyrc but put a link to it. Here's a sample .conkyrc that just has the conkycal.sh in it:
    Code:
    override_utf8_locale yes
    own_window_title conky
    use_xft yes
    background yes
    xftfont vera:size=10
    alignment left
    xftalpha 1
    own_window yes
    own_window_type normal
    own_window_transparent no
    #own_window_hints undecorated,below,sticky,skip_taskbar,skip_pager
    double_buffer yes
    draw_shades no
    draw_outline no
    draw_borders no
    stippled_borders 10
    border_margin 4
    border_width 1
    default_shade_color grey
    default_outline_color black
    use_spacer none
    no_buffers yes
    uppercase no
    default_color 99ccff #Light Blue
    color0 4040ff #Blue
    color1 40ff40 #Green
    color2 ff4040 #Red
    color3 ffffff #White
    color4 aa40aa #Purple
    color5 c08040 #Brown
    color6 ffff40 #Yellow
    color7 aaaaaa #Gray
    color8 808080 #Dark Gray
    color9 4040aa #Dark Blue
    text_buffer_size 4096
    #minimum_size 285
    TEXT
    ${font monospace:size=12}${execpi 3600 $HOME/conky/conkycal.sh}${font}

    Re: Post your .conkyrc files w/ screenshots

    Thanks for that. I think I really need to go study the whole conky thing some more.
    By adding that script into the .conkyrc, I got the calender to show, and actually made some changes to it, how do I center it in my screen?
    I really appreciate the help here! Thank you.

    Multi-line outputs can be tricky to center. Try this:
    Code:
    ${execpi 3600 $HOME/conky/conkycal.sh | sed 's/^/${center}/'}
    and where the .conkyrc says own_window_type normal make it own_window_type desktop and change alignment left to alignment center

    Code:
    ${execpi 3600 $HOME/conky/conkycal.sh | sed 's/^/${center}/'}: bad substitution

    Did you add that to the .conkyrc?

    What if you use http://cerebrum.dnalounge.com:8000/radio do you get the songtitles then?
    If yes, then it is simply your beloved radiostation which does not send the titles.
    No, that's not the problem.
    When I play in Rhythmbox a song from my computer or a CD or if a radiostation is playing, I see the title, track, artist etc.
    When using Conky I see that same information by use of Rhythmboxbar.sh, except the information of the radiostation.
    My question is, can the information of the radiostation be made visible too in Conky?

    I only get that error if I run that line in a terminal. It goes in the .conkyrc file and it then calls the conkycal.sh file and pipes it through sed to add the center variable to the beginning of each line.
