Conky error

Postby Baobao on Sun Feb 13, 2011 4:09 am

Hi all,
I have created a conky script for checking hotmail messages. Running this script independently (outside of conky) it works fine. However, running conky gives the following error when running the script:

use Mail::Pop3Client;
^
SyntaxError: invalid syntax


My searching so far has not turned up anything. Does anyone have any ideas about this?

Hi Baobao,
can you post the relevant part of your conkyrc?
That will help debugging the error

Hotmail - ${color 95956B}${execi 300 python ~/.scripts/hotmail.pl} ${color FFFFFF}
${color Black}${font Monospace:size=14}GMail - ${execi 300 python ~/.scripts/gmail.py}

The gmail script works without any issues.... as I wrote that I saw what I was doing wrong (python instead of perl!) Changing it to perl fixes the issue. I appreciate your reply, zerozero.
