The United Federation Starship Statler, call sign NCC 110·207 R, is a part of the United Federation of Conkys.

NCC 110·207 R's mission is to help Crunchbang complete it's Mission Statement.

As you see UFOC personnel have logged into local terminals and they are being monitored.

The Captain's Location changes according to the desktop you are on. I renamed mine for this conky:

RED ALERT (upper right) - someone needs to eject the garbage. All terminals are closed down except the Main Bridge Terminal

Across the top:
  1. HHMMSS DD.MM.YY
  2. STARDATE is UNIX Epoc time in seconds
  3. UNIVERSAL EARTHDATE YYYjjjHHMMSS, and past Red Alert
  4. uptime short

You will need:
  1. conkyMisc - to calculate NEXT REFIT with conkyDateDiff & conkyDaysDiff
  2. conkyEmail - (or some other mails script program) for INCOMMING COMMUNICATIONS

Simple conky project of mine. Nothing especial. Since my desktop background changes every boot, I just wanted something that will look neat and readable on all of my desktop background collection.

My 5cents. The setup is kinda complex, let me know if anyone is interested and I'll give you the conkyrc and necessary scripts.

For conky users who use gedit or medit.

I have updated the "conkyrc.lang" file that gedit and medit uses to colour code the conky syntax according to what the variables and settings were as of 11/11/11. Almost 100 lines added to the file!

Tested with:
  1. medit v1.0.3
  2. medit v1.0.5
  3. gedit v2.30.4
  4. gedit v3.0.6-2

You can grab the file here: (the same for both)
gedit and conky and medit and conky

Things to note:
  1. medit does NOT "remember" files like gedit, other than "conkyrc" or what you set it to - yet,
  2. medit has one option as to where to place the conkyrc.lang file
  3. as shown on the medit page, you can change the automatic selection of what files get colour coded
  4. gedit has various locations for the conkyrc.lang file, it depends in which version of gedit you use as well.

Special thanks for VastOne's help with medit.

Finally got the set-up I want for mine. Sort of repetitive, but it does what I want and need it to! Big thanks to Satya 164 and the author of the lua-rings script.

Hi, all! Just joined Linux Mint Forums, and thought I might share my conky setup. I tend to prefer simple desktops:

Here's the conkys I run normally, they change occasionally:
Image

Two conkys ... the first, under tint2, is using the "hwmon" method to get the T1 & T2 temps, not sure what they represent as sensors just say;
Code: Select all
temp1:        +37.0°C  (high = +85.0°C, hyst = +81.0°C)
temp2:        +36.0°C  (high = +85.0°C, hyst = +81.0°C)

Next the conky "nvidia" command to get GPU temp and the Freq for GPU and Mem, fairly new haven't used that before. Glad they added that command as lm-sensors picked up nothing on my video card.

Under the calendar on the right another little used conky command; "weather" for today only from NOAA. The "weather_forecast" no longer works as weather·com has started charging for their service: $240.00 a year.
It shows the current temp, barometric pressure, humidity and wind direction and speed.

==========================================================
But that's not what this post is about, it's about one of LinuxMint's own LUA programmers: mrpeachy and londonali1010 and dk75 and their

"ULTIMATE" conky background LUA script.

If you use a composite manager, this work, if you don't ... it still works.

Why ultimate? Well, I just gave you two reasons now add the third, you configure everything right from the command line in conky, no need to edit the LUA script at all.

Both the conky under my tint2 bar and the calendar to the right are using it without running a composite manager.
Here's how:
Code: Select all
###  LUA Settings  ###########################################################
##
## The HowTo - so simple:
## ${lua conky_draw_bg corner_radius x_position y_position width height color alpha}
##
## Above and After TEXT - requires a composite manager or the background blinks.
## ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
## lua_load ~/Conky/LUA/draw_bg.lua   ### the path to the LUA script
## TEXT
## ${lua conky_draw_bg 10 0 0 0 0 0x000000 0.4}start conky commands here
##
##
## OR Both above TEXT (No composite manager required - no blinking!)
##
lua_load ~/Conky/LUA/draw_bg.lua
lua_draw_hook_pre draw_bg 0 0 0 0 0 0x000000 0.5
## TEXT
##
#######################################################  End LUA Settings  ###

TEXT
start conky commands ...

... as you see, EASY!!
It's the only LUA background script I use now.

Code: Select all
${lua conky_draw_bg corner_radius x_position y_position width height color alpha}

0 - 0 is square corners - 10 = 10 pixels etc etc
0 - similar to gap_x - placing the top left corner of the background
0 - similar to gay_y -  placing the top left corner of the background
0 - 0 here and ...
0 - 0 here fills the entire conky window - or you can set the height & width
0x000000 - this is the colour (without the # = black)
0.5 - the "alpha setting" must be between 0 and 1


Now think about this: another reason for ULTIMATE!

You use a composite manager you have a black background ... but want to accent something in white, add a second command:
Code: Select all
lua_load ~/Conky/LUA/draw_bg.lua   ### the path to the LUA script
TEXT
${lua conky_draw_bg 50 0 0 0 0 0x000000 0.4}${lua conky_draw_bg 0 50 50 50 50 0xFFFFFF 0.5}start conky commands here


There you go, a black background with rounded corners of 50 pixels filling the conky window (I set the example to be 200 by 200), the second instance, a white square 50x50 pixels down 50 pixels and in 50 pixels from the top left corner.
Image

Now that's a one background LUA script to beat them all!
Thank you londonali1010, mrpeachy & dk75!

EDIT ... I forgot the LUA script!!!! :oops: :oops:

Code: Select all
--[[Background originally by londonali1010 (2009)
    ability to set any size for background mrpeachy 2011
    ability to set variables for bg in conkyrc dk75

  the change is that if you set width and/or height to 0
  then it assumes the width and/or height of the conky window

so:

lua_load ~/Conky/LUA/draw_bg.lua
TEXT
${lua conky_draw_bg 20 0 0 0 0 0x000000 0.4}


${lua conky_draw_bg corner_radius x_position y_position width height color alpha}

covers the whole window and will change if you change the minimum_size setting

20             corner_radius
 0             x_position
 0             y_position
 0             width
 0             height
 0x000000      color
 0.4           alpha

Monitor ATI Graphic Card and Load from conky.

Postby rsys on Thu Dec 01, 2011 2:54 am

Sorry if I post this at the wrong thread

1. Install ATI Driver, you can do that from Additional Driver or Install manually
2. Put the command bellow to your conkyrc file (you can customize the interval as you like)
Code: Select all
# Monitor VGA Load
${execpi 30 /usr/bin/aticonfig --adapter=0 --od-getclocks | grep -Eo "[[:digit:]]\%"}
#Monitor VGA Temparature
${execpi 30 /usr/bin/aticonfig --adapter=0 --od-gettemperature | grep -Eo "[[:digit:]]{1,}\.[[:digit:]]{1,}"}°C

3. After you put the code above in your conkyrc file you can customize by change the location or the font.

conkyrc example, I use conky-colors to generate the conkyrc file. After that I customize the file

1. It's a conky - it's the right thread.
2. Your English is fine!

And it's a nice little ATI HowTo some will be glad to see it.

Well last time I checked or downloaded em anyway. :D Hiya's 2 Sector11, I see you are still one of the gnu/linux worlds leading guru's and fans of all things conky. Tips hat ... Dang people have some really nice conky configs going on here. Cool.

Thanks for the kind words, I'm just helping were I can. There are a lot of people more conky wise than I am, it's just I'm here more often.

Nice clean conky you have there ... I have trimmed my conky back a LOT - two actually - and since this is Mint ... a green wallpaper. :mrgreen:

nothing special, mostly just a copypasta from the crunchbang forums. I still haven't learned enough to get the right monitoring code in there. I know Mint has one from the factory, I just haven't done enough homework to get it in my conky. This particular screeny though, I took cuz I wanted to show off cpu usage without crash of Linux in general. If I would've come anywhere close to that kind of usage in Windows, it would've imploded on me immediately. I talk from experience. I was transferring about 2 gigs of pics to the net and 4.5 gigs of pics to a flash drive at the same time. While running banshee music player and surfing on a separate browser from the one that was uploading pics.

Hi! my name is Jean-Pierre, I have a question, is lua difference between LM 12 and LMDE , because the same conky-lua is not working in LM 12
but work on LMDE.
The shell response on every symbol '=' is :

Code: Select all
 conky -c /home/bushi12/.conky/scripts/conkyrcConky: llua_load: /home/bushi12/.conky/scripts/clock_rings.lua:262: unexpected symbol near '='
Conky: desktop window (1000024) is subwindow of root window (18e)
Conky: window type - override
Conky: drawing to created window (0x2a00001)
Conky: drawing to double buffer
Conky: llua_do_call: function conky_clock_rings execution failed: attempt to call a nil value
Conky: llua_do_call: function conky_clock_rings execution failed: attempt to call a nil value

but the symbol '=' is important :

Code: Select all
clock_x=190
clock_y=297

show_seconds=true

require 'cairo'

function rgb_to_r_g_b(colour,alpha)
    return ((colour / 0x10000) % 0x100) / 255., ((colour / 0x100) % 0x100) / 255., (colour % 0x100) / 255., alpha
end

Somebody know this problem and how to fix it ?
Thanks

Under each one there was a link that said something like "download and configuration settings". So you should be able to use them if you like.
