Conky swap in Debian Mint

Postby colyn on Mon Sep 06, 2010 11:16 pm

I installed Debian Mint on my laptop with everything going smooth as silk.

When I setup conky it does not read swap (no swap%) However I do have a swap partition since I manually partitioned it and it does show up in Disk Utility.

Below is the line in my .conkyrc file

Code: Select all
${color #00ff00}Swap:       $color $swap/$swapmax - ${alignr}$swapperc%
${swapbar 4}

Here is the SWAP line from my Conky in Debian.

Code: Select all
SWAP:$alignr$swap/$swapmax - ${swapperc}%


Experiment with it ... Conky is 'fun'

Got it working..

I had to edit my /etc/fstab and add the line
Code: Select all
/dev/sda5  swap  swap  defaults 0 0
