(Solved)Conky Configurations

Postby willie42 on Tue Mar 08, 2011 7:46 pm

I am trying to get a nice looking conky set up and I am working on the weather. I am having some issues with it and if someone can shed some light on what I might be doing wrong. I have been working on this for several weeks and I have come up empty on how to get my weather working. If someone would be kind enough to look at it and tell me where I am going wrong or what I am forgetting to do it would be much appreciated. I have installed Conky forcast and I have looked at other threads and just can't see where I am going wrong at. here is my Conky Script.

I'm putting the kids to bed so don't have time to look through your code, but here's mine that works pretty good for me. Maybe you can find a hint here: http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=60&t=30209&start=60#p326232

willie:

The last 7 lines of your code should read like this:
Code: Select all
${voffset -25}${font ConkyWeather:size=45}${execi 1800 conkyForecast –location=USTN0370 --datatype=WF --imperial}
${alignc 22}${voffset -60}${font Arial:bold:size=10}${color DimGray}${execi 1800 conkyForecast --location=USTN0370 --datatype=HT --imperial}
$font${voffset -55}${alignr}${color white}Wind: ${execi 1800 conkyForecast –location=USTN0370 --datatype=WS --imperial}
${alignr}${color white}Humidity: ${execi 1800 conkyForecast –location=USTN0370 --datatype=HM --imperial}
${alignr}${color white}Precipitation: ${execi 1800 conkyForecast –location=USTN0370 --datatype=PC --imperial}

${color white}Sunrise: $alignr${execi 1800 conkyForecast –location=USTN0370 --datatype=SR}${alignr}
Sunset: $alignr${execi 1800 conkyForecast –location=USTN0370 --datatype=SS}$color


Code: Select all
use_spacer right

above TEXT is correct.

Lemme know...
