Can't get Rhythmbox to work on conky

Postby WMM on Tue Jul 20, 2010 1:51 pm

So I am running linux mint. I have been trying to get conky to show the album art work and song info of what's playing on rhythmbox. I have searched and searched but every one I find I can't get working.
I have tried: ... album-art/
Mainly, I found others but didn't seem like what I was looking for.
Currently my script is:
Code: Select all
sleep 20 && conky -c /home/drystin/.conkyrc

# Configuration Conky

own_window yes
own_window_transparent yes

Everything is working fine, but I can't get rhythmbox to work.
In the above link it said something like chmod the file to x+. I know what chmod is most forums require you to chmod files to 666 or 777 before you install them such as mybb. But I don't know how to do this on linux or to x+.
Help is appreciated.
