Conky Problems

Postby arminius on Sun Jan 08, 2012 9:41 am

I've moved over from ubuntu to mint, and my conky is being really weird, here's the screenshot, Image where my weather conky which is ment to be on the right side of the screen, is instead on the left side, right ontop of the memory conky, not sure why, or how to correct it. Here's the code for that conky.

Scratch that...

alignment
Aligned position on screen, may be top_left, top_right, top_middle, bottom_left, bottom_right, bottom_middle, middle_left, middle_middle, middle_right, or none (also can be abreviated as tl, tr, tm, bl, br, bm, ml, mm, mr). See also gap_x and gap_y.

http://conky.sourceforge.net/docs.html

My guess is "alignment lower_right" should read "alignment br" without the quotes.
What's a landing but a take off in reverse?

I changed the
Code: Select all
gap_y 0
to
Code: Select all
gap_y 200

and weather moved to the top of the screen, but when I change it to
Code: Select all
gap_y -400

the weather conky never goes past the traffic conky.
What I want is to place it in the bottom right, under everything else.

You are going to have to edit ALL those voffsets and goto codes one at a time in /home/user/.conky/conkyForecast.template
until your weather details "line up" where you want it on the widget "canvas"

TIP:
I suggest running conky and fire up gedit and open /home/user/.conky/conkyForecast.template
Making minute changes and then saving (Ctrl+S) in gedit. Once saved, watch your screen.
Conky will redraw automatically.

Adding
Code: Select all
own_window_type override
to your conkyrc will prevent conky from being minimized when/if you use the "show desktop" panel thingie.

Here's is my code for my widget (for voffset and goto comparison)
Code: Select all
background yes
use_xft yes
xftfont Sans:size=8
xftalpha 1
update_interval 1.0
total_run_times 0
own_window yes
own_window_transparent yes
own_window_type override
own_window_colour brown
own_window_hints undecorated,below,sticky,skip_taskbar,skip_pager
double_buffer yes
minimum_size 190 200
maximum_width 190
draw_shades yes
draw_outline no
draw_borders no
draw_graph_borders yes
default_color white
default_shade_color black
default_outline_color white

Save my code as say /home/user/.conky/test_weather and run with

conky -c  /home/user/.conky/test_weather


Adjust

gap_x 10
gap_y 185

Let conky + test_weather run (from terminal) and fire up "gedit /home/user/.conky/test_weather" and start making adjustments.

to suit the general placement of the weather widget and adjust the voffset and/or goto codes to adjust the output inside the weather widget.
