One more Conky problem

Postby TurnerBR on Wed Feb 22, 2012 6:04 pm

HI everyone,

first I would like to apologize for the crossed post and for going over conky problems again but I have read many many threads, here and in other sites, and I cant find any help for my problem.

I have installed Conky with the software center and ran it very well (standard standard). When I read some threads about customizing my conky I went to ~/.conkyrc and of course the file wasnt there. No problem created on blank. Then conky didnt want to work anymore.
Tried to look in other forums and here what to add to conkyrc and all I tried were coming with strange errors, everytime a different one.

I then deleted the .conkyrc and tried to edit directly on the conky.conf (can do a little but if I try to add other specifications like temp etc it stops working).

Here is a copy of my /etc/conky/conky.conf

I have tried many different suggestions to conkyrc configurations but none worked.

I am runing Mint 12 lisa (pretty plan as I just installed) x86 in a Samsung R580
Have followed the wikihow as well as my last and simpler guide and still not working: http://www.wikihow.com/Configure-Conky

Any help would be very welcome.

In Mints software manager install conky-all

create ~/.conkyrc and put your conky code there.
(if it's blank, then it doesn't do anything.)

You can test the code just writing conky in you terminal, when it doesn't give errors then it's ready to go.
(ctrl c to get out of testing)

Typo, forgot the .

Yes that is what I did many times, I created the ~/.conkyrc and tried many different codes, all of them were giving many problems. Even if I just let it blank or copied exactly the same contents that are on the conky.conf it would comeback with errors.

The code at the wikihow is pretty simple and straight forward but still didnt work.

I dont know anymore what to do to add my laptop temperature to be displayed!

What errors?

To read temperatures you need to install lm-sensors and configure it.

Hi Lumikki,

the sensors are already installed and they were working. When I run sensors in the terminal it gives me all the answers. It is pretty much the conkyrc that no matter what I put in there gives me the errors.

Using the .conkyr example that wikihow gave (which is pretty standard):

This is wrong, there is no if statement but there is endif.
Code: Select all
$endif

Remove this


This
Code: Select all
use_spacer no

should be
Code: Select all
use_spacer none


Player lines aren't working. So remove them
Code: Select all
# none, xmms, bmp, audacious, infopipe (default is none)
xmms_player bmp


If you get errors from the temperature. It could be that they aren't working for you.
Code: Select all
${color #356282}Proces:${color #A3C4E4} $processes  ${color #356282}Run:${color #A3C4E4} $running_processes ${color #356282}CPU:${color #A3C4E4} ${i2c temp 2}C${color #A3C4E4} ${color #356282}MB:${color #A3C4E4} ${i2c temp 1}C


i2c temp 2
i2c temp 1

You could just grep the temperatures from sensors command output, little like this.

${exec sensors | grep temp1 | cut -c15-19,21-22}

But check you "sensors" output first to see what to grep there.

There is something else wrong too in your code, but I did not find it. I doesn't seem to show the output at all.

Here is some conky script code modified from your code where you see something.
Still some stuff wrong in the screen, but at least it's working.
Code: Select all
# Create own window instead of using desktop (required in nautilus)
own_window yes
own_window_hints undecorated,below,skip_taskbar
background no

# Use double buffering (reduces flicker, may not work for everyone)
double_buffer yes

# fiddle with window
use_spacer right
use_xft yes

# Update interval in seconds
update_interval 1.0

# Minimum size of text area
minimum_size 300 5

# Draw shades?
draw_shades yes

# Text stuff
draw_outline no # amplifies text if yes
draw_borders no

uppercase no # set to yes if you want all text to be in uppercase

# Stippled borders?
stippled_borders 8

# border margins
#border_margin 4

# border width
border_width 1

# Default colors and also border colors, grey90 == #e5e5e5
default_color white
default_shade_color black
default_outline_color white

own_window_colour brown
own_window_transparent yes

# Text alignment, other possible values are commented
#alignment top_left
alignment top_right
#alignment bottom_left
#alignment bottom_right

# Gap between borders of screen and text
gap_x 10
gap_y 10

# stuff after 'TEXT' will be formatted on screen

override_utf8_locale no

As promised, coming back with the feedback:
It works very nicely and all the sensors seams to be working fine. Can see all the temperatures and processes, etc etc etc.

Thank you very much for the help.

btw the colors also fit very nice with my background so no need for changes haha!

Now I will search how to put it to start automatically when I start the computer.

Yeah, I wasn't trying to make it pretty and even some stuff could be wrong. I was just trying to make it work for you.
You have to check you sensors output to fix correct temperatures in correct spots. I think I tryed to put CPU temperature in MB spot, not sure.
It takes little bit learn the syntax of conky as how to modify. Just trying stuff will go long way.

In menu there is software where is starting programs, when system boots up. You can just add there new one.
Invent some name for it and then put conky as started program, the name of conky is just enough.

My point is while it's now working, you need to now customize it for you needs. Good luck.
