Nice Colyn. Just noticed your weather in the screenshot. I lived in Dallas from 1969 to 1973 (Navy stationed at NAS Dallas in Grand Prairie). :D

Thanks..

Navy myself 1970-1980...

The Naval Air Station was closed in the 90's and moved to the old Carswell AFB here in Fort Worth. It's now Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base and is less than a mile from where I live..

You add in you home folder .conkyrc file what has just text what defines how everyting looks and what is shown. Then you just have to make conky start with your computer.

It gave me mnt/disk1 -4 errors so i changed i to 'gateway' cuz thats the only hard drive i mount usually but now its giving me these errors
also tried
${color 000000}${font Radio Space:size=10} Windows: ${font} ${fs_used_perc /mnt/media/Gateway}% ${fs_bar 12,140 /mnt/media/Gateway}
and still got errors with the below errors. ;/

Code: Select all

user@admin ~ $ conky
Conky: /home/user/.conkyrc: 27: no such configuration: 'border_margin'
Conky: desktop window (1000023) is subwindow of root window (b0)
Conky: window type - override
Conky: drawing to created window (0x3c00001)
Conky: drawing to double buffer


EDIT: I tried removing the whole

#Border Settings
border_margin 4
border_width 1

section from the code and changed the /mnt/Gateway to just /media/gateway and /home on the hard drives, but im getting the above error - the border margin error. It says all the stuff, but nothing shows up on my desktop?

You are getting errors because in the .conkyrc has something what doesn't fit in your computer. Example you don't necessary have in your computer some directory what someone else has. You have to try to edit the scripts so that it works for you. All scripts are personal. Try some other, more simpler Conky code.

Code: Select all
# UBUNTU-CONKY
# A comprehensive conky script, configured for use on
# Ubuntu / Debian Gnome, without the need for any external scripts.

# 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 yes
use_xft yes

# Update interval in seconds
update_interval 1.0

# Minimum size of text area
minimum_size 160 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
xftfont Terminus:size=8
xftalpha 0.8

TEXT

${font LCDMono:size=25}${time %R}${font LCDMono:size=10}:${time %S}${font}
${color }${time %A %e %B}

${color slate grey}UpTime: ${color }$uptime

${color slate grey}CPU speed ${color } ${freq} MHz
${color slate grey}CPU ${color } ${cpu cpu}%
${color slate grey}Load: ${color }$loadavg

Also I suggest you to open new thread for Conky questions. Lets not use this thread for it, what is for Desktop Screenshots.

Latest release of #!Crunchbang-Statler v20120207

Basically a 'crunchified' Debian-Squeeze (stable+backports) with Openbox WM

Customized the theme, menu, tint2, conky and colorized everything.

Great wallpaper I found here: http://teddybearcholla.deviantart.com/art/Shadows-285302486

I REALLY hope that Cinnamon will be the default DE in Mint 13!

GTK: Zukitwo
Window Theme : Adwaita
Modified default cinnamon theme + docky.

I'd drop docky completely if there was an applet for getting unread count from thunderbird and displaying it on a cinnamon panel.
