Also I didn't realize that's what the p was for. I was just under the impression that execpi runs at the specified interval AND the conky refresh interval, whereas execi only runs at the specified interval. I might have this wrong.
    Straight from the Conky Objects page:

    Code:
    execp 	command 	Executes a shell command and displays the output in conky. warning: this takes a lot more resources than other variables. I'd recommend coding wanted behaviour in C and posting a patch. This differs from $exec in that it parses the output of the command, so you can insert things like ${color red}hi!${color} in your script and have it correctly parsed by Conky. Caveats: Conky parses and evaluates the output of $execp every time Conky loops, and then destroys all the objects. If you try to use anything like $execi within an $execp statement, it will functionally run at the same interval that the $execp statement runs, as it is created and destroyed at every interval.
    
    execpi 	interval command 	Same as execp but with specific interval. Interval can't be less than update_interval in configuration. Note that the output from the $execpi command is still parsed and evaluated at every interval.
    In short: exec executes things, execi executes things at intervals, execp parses the output of the executed thing, and execpi parses the executed thing at intervals.

    Easy way to remember? Bookmark the variables page. (Thought I was going for something there didn't ya? No. Sorry. I'm not THAT clever.)

    From what I remember about awk, grep, and cut, awk requires your desired result in the same space every time, where grep can look for where your result starts before it spits out anything, and cut just takes what you don't want and ignores it.

    There's no real benefit of one or the other, but rather a major benefit of you knowing what they all do so you can get the results you need every time, and know when to use which one to solve any problems that arise.

    Unless there is one benefit: with GREP and CUT you must load NYXMMS2 3 times from disk, then load GREP 3 times and then load CUT 3 times - so in one Conky loop you have 9 disk load operation just for XMMS2 status.

    With AWK you have 2.

    AWK don't only search or substitute - it's way more than that. It's like scripting shell with sophisticated REGEXP/string manipulation tools.

    So sometimes it's not efficient to use it because of it's complexity.
    But it is a problem of big loop inside of some more complex scripts that process some data to be worried of.


    And as for result of AWK - it's printed as it goes from input (in this case, album title first, then artist and then song title) if not rearranged with internal variables as I did.

    Neither
    Code:
    neil     ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: /usr/bin/aptitude
    nor
    Code:
    neil     ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: /usr/bin/aptitude update

    You don't need to mess with SUDOERS and your system permissions if you use package 'update-notifier'.

    Security updates:
    Code:
    /usr/lib/update-notifier/apt-check 2>&1 |cut -d ';' -f 1
    Normal updates:
    Code:
    /usr/lib/update-notifier/apt-check 2>&1 |cut -d ';' -f 2

    or with one run (apt-check is sloooow to run in loop):
    Code:
    /usr/lib/update-notifier/apt-check 2>&1 |awk -F";" '{print "Security updates:", $1 "\nNormal updates:", $2}'

    Here's a script that I called from conky to display updates:
    Code:
    #!/bin/bash
    # Conky script for displaying available updates
    # in Ubuntu. This script assumes you are in the
    # sudo group and require no password for root
    # access. Add something as such to your conkyrc:
    #${color}APT: ${color D7D3C5}${execi 28800 /usr/local/bin/aptupdates.sh}
    
    sudo apt-get -qy update > /dev/null
    NUMOFUPDATES=$(sudo aptitude search "~U" | wc -l)
    echo You have $NUMOFUPDATES updates ready
    
    exit 0
    Save it in /usr/local/bin/aptupdates.sh then:
    Code:
    cd /usr/local/bin/
    Code:
    sudo chmod +sx aptupdates.sh
    et voila!

    Just finished the last few tweaks for now. This is a modified version of one I stumbled across (between pages 300 and 600, maybe) on this topic.

    ip.sh:
    Code:
    #!/bin/bash
    # From default conky config I think

    grep -Eo '\<[[:digit:]]{1,3}(\.[[:digit:]]{1,3}){3}\>'
    nvid.sh
    Code:
    #!/bin/bash
    # Created Apr 28, 2012
    # Last modified Apr 28, 2012
    
    total=1279
    used=`nvidia-smi -q | grep Used | cut -c34-37`
    
    #echo "$used/$total"
    
    #my_value=$(($used / $total))
    result=$(echo scale=4\; $used '/' $total '* 100' | bc -l)
    
    echo $result
    ping_test.sh
    Code:
    #!/bin/bash
    # http://linuxexpresso.wordpress.com/2009/12/20/conky-ip-monitor/
    
    if ping -c 1 -W 2 $1 > /dev/null; then
    echo "Up"
    else
    echo "Down"
    fi
    startupconky.sh:
    Code:
    #!/bin/bash
    conk_root="/home/$USER/.Conky"

    Re: Post your .conkyrc files w/ screenshots

    Is it necessary to use sudo with aptitude search

    I have this line in my conky
    Code:
    Updates: ${color green}${execi 900 aptitude search "~U" | wc -l | tail}

    and for external ip address
    Code:
    ${execi 3600 curl ifconfig.me}

    Just tried aptitude search without sudo and you're right. I didn't realize that. Didn't know about the "~U" thing either. I was simply cutting the results from "aptitude -sy upgrade" where it lists the number of upgrades available at the bottom. Thank you and thanks to RichardCain for that info too.

    Didn't know about "wc" either. Handy little tool.

    That's what I figured and what I meant by grep and cut being called more times. I guess if it was a really large script and the calls were getting into the thousands it would really make a huge difference. I'll have to relearn awk I guess. I used to use it alot but have since switched to sed for the most part. Kind of forgotten most of the syntax by now.
