    It's really weird (or I understand it wrong) but the 1280 is everything. On mine I always have to run it smaller to something like.

    minimum_size 60 5
    maximum_width 85 5

    Just changed 'em both to "80 5" and got the same problem.

    However, now I understand how "size" works, I think.

    No dice. However, It looks nicer now because it's finally got the transparent background.

    Only difference, obviously, is that the placement on the other is bottom_left, not top_left.
    Create two conky files: conkyt and conkyb

    conkyt (top) will have:

    Code:
    alignment top_left
    cinkyb (bottom) will have:

    Code:
    alignment bottom_left
    Everything else above TEXT is the same
    Below TEXT is where you make the changes.

    Now in terminal:

    Code:
    gedit ~/.startconky
    and in that empty file cut and paste this:

    Code:
    #!/bin/bash
    sleep 20 &
    conky -c ~/where_your_files_are/conkyt &
    #sleep 1 &
    #conky -c ~/where_your_files_are/conkyb &
    where_your_files_are is the folder where you have the two files. ie: mine is: /.conkyscripts

    Make it executable:
    Code:
    chmod u+x .startconky
    Thanks to: p_quarles

    Now you can start conky with:

    Code:
    ./.startconky
    and kill it with:

    Code:
    killall conky

    Opps! That's the way I was taught how to do it, will correct it.
    I thought it was because it would automatically executable.

    Thanks.

    It might make it executable (honestly not sure), but it might also break permissions. Much better to just run:
    Code:
    chmod u+x .startconky

    Code:
    sudo chmod a+x ~/scripts/weather.sh
    Hmmm, I've been told a+x

    Now I just have to find all the commands for chmod!

    Thanks again p_quarles.
