Strange numbers on my Conky display

Postby jedi-jinx on Fri Jun 25, 2010 1:01 am

Hi everyone,

I recently installed Mint 9 and am learning my way around. I added Conky and after tinkering with it a bit, got it working the way I wanted. Part of it displays my CPU and Motherboard temperatures. It worked like a charm the day I was tinkering with it--even through full reboots. However, the next day I noticed some additional numbers displayed with the temperature readings. I didn't make any adjustments to the configurations and haven't seen anything that would cause this display. Perhaps one of you might share some insight.

Here's what my display looked like before when I was taking screenshots:

Here's what my display looks like now:

Here is my Conky code from the .conkyrc file:

I think this line is your problem:
Code: Select all
${voffset 8}${font Weather:size=18}${color3}xyz${color}${font}   ${color white}CPU Temperature: ${exec sensors |grep temp | cut -c13-40}

try running this:
Code: Select all
sensors |grep temp | cut -c13-40

in a terminal window and see if those numbers show up.

I did a few tests to try and it looks like I would have a similar issue if I had that command in my .conkyrc. If you add an extra | grep crit to the end of the command getting your temps it should fix it. (see the last command I ran)
Code: Select all
verdow@techcage-07 ~ $ sensors
acpitz-virtual-0
Adapter: Virtual device
temp1:       +30.0°C  (crit = +75.0°C)                 

k8temp-pci-00c3
Adapter: PCI adapter
Core0 Temp:  +47.0°C                                   
Core0 Temp:  +55.0°C                                   
Core1 Temp:  +48.0°C                                   
Core1 Temp:  +55.0°C                                   

verdow@techcage-07 ~ $ sensors | grep temp
temp1:       +30.0°C  (crit = +75.0°C)                 
k8temp-pci-00c3
verdow@techcage-07 ~ $ sensors | grep temp | cut -c13-40
 +30.0°C  (crit = +75.0°C)
0c3
verdow@techcage-07 ~ $ sensors | grep temp | cut -c13-40 | grep crit
 +30.0°C  (crit = +75.0°C)
verdow@techcage-07 ~ $

[SOLVED]--Re: Strange numbers on my Conky display

Thanks Red Wagon!

Your solution to add |grep crit to the end of that line worked like a charm. A bit confusing as the crit level was listed at part of the original code, but I'm glad it works nicely now! Thanks much.

A bit confusing as the crit level was listed at part of the original code,

If you have any questions, this is the place to ask.
What grep crit does is look at the output from the last command and then filters out all lines except ones that contain crit.
