Conky configuration help? [Solved]

Postby Losgann on Thu Sep 25, 2008 9:57 am

Hello, I'm trying to configure Conky (under Elyssa XFCE CE) but I'm running into a problem with colors and can't figure out what I'm doing wrong. I want Conky's text to be in black on a grey background. Here is my .conkyrc file:
Code: Select all
background yes

own_window no
own_window_type desktop
own_window_transparent no

update_interval 1.0

draw_shades no
draw_outline no
draw_borders no
xftfont Samanata
uppercase no

stippled_borders 3

double_buffer yes

default_color #000000
own_window_color #cccccc

alignment top_middle

gap_x 5
gap_y 38


# stuff after 'TEXT' will be formatted on screen

TEXT
$color
${color #000099}$nodename: ${color #660000}Uptime: $color${uptime} ${color #660000}RAM: $color$mem of $memmax ($memperc%) ${color #660000}Swap: $color$swap of $swapmax ($swapperc%) ${color #660000}Hard disk: $color$fs_used of $fs_size, $fs_free ($fs_free_perc%) free


But here is a screenshot of the output:

...as you can see, white text even though I specified black text, and transparent background even though I turned that off and set a background color. Can anyone help me fix this?

Well, I took yours as a base and took out all the bits that I didn't want, and now it works...

I don't know what your file had that mine didn't, but thank you. :)
