Re: Help needed getting SSD temperature displayed

I did a little searching. It seems like hddtemp isn't going to be the right tool for that?

various articles are talking about using smartctl.

This user is doing something with an nvme tool: https://askubuntu.com/questions/1038701 ... 11#1038711

Keep us posted.

Re: Help needed getting SSD temperature displayed

If you have 2 drives, then you would want to address the area where it has SDA and SDB(and just remove the stuff for SDC and D from the next line.. same with dual GPU). A single section of each drive has this format in the area: ${goto 140}SDA:${goto 180}${hddtemp /dev/sda} °C if your case has your ...

Re: [SOLVED] Have conky autorun at startup with specific setting

if conky is autostart with no parameters it will run the default configuration: /etc/conky/conky.conf UNLESS you have a file called: ~/.conkyrc -in which case it uses that instead. If you are using conky-manager: 1. in the main window, put a checkbox beside one or more configs that you want to start...

Re: Show cpu core temp in conky

... there is also a "conky-manager" desktop gui front-end for this. also note, there is an updated version of conky-manager that honors the newer version of conky with it's newer lua-based config files. So conky-manager2 will load/edit/save the 1.10 configs also(which the original does not). Right ...

trytip , teejee didn't provide packages for Artful or Bionic since they weren't out at the time, and he's stopped development of that program. I don't think that ppa will pull against Mint 19.

Re: Display watching/recording in conky for plex

Ha! Great! Very nice! It would be nice to see you get rid of the duplicate call(the same curl call in the second and third line). It's not as efficient like that, but also, what about in the instances when an activity change happens between the 2nd and 3rd call? :twisted: Maybe you can get rid of th...

Re: Conky Show Fahrenheit instead of Celcius

Just curious here...why use ${exec sensors ... } instead of using ${hwmon} or ${platform} for cpu temp? I've always used hwmon, as that's how I first saw it, and exec seemed like something for advanced things. I would think hwmon would be a more efficient approach, although the data is potentially ...

${color1}CPU 0 ${offset 9}${color9}${cpu cpu0}% (${execi 8 sensors | grep -A 1 'temp1' | cut -c16-19 | sed '/^$/d'}°C) so in grep -A 1 gives an extra line after it finds the 'temp1' line, then cut brings the right data from the correct line, but then sed removes the rest and the extra line?

Code: Select all

lol.. :shock:

sensors -f. Who'da thunk it. And why not just cut the temp right out of it since it's always predictable output. :roll:

good stuff. :D

Re: Conky Show Fahrenheit instead of Celcius

I would use °F for sure. :D It's just text, so you just observe the typical scheming there depending on which color or whatever. If you want a different color go to the end of the line and encapsulate it in some color markers. Or you could use the exising color and keep it inside the existing markers.

Re: Conky Show Fahrenheit instead of Celcius

the interested line is: ${color6}Cpu Temp ${alignr}${color6}${execi 10 sensors | grep 'Core 0' | awk {'print $3'}}${color} strip the conky markup and in a terminal we can run directly: sensors | grep 'Core 0' | awk {'print $3'} But, that output isn't too useful alone to be able to make a conversion....

Re: XFCE 18.3 + compiz - mate-panel starting only on first desktop

This might be a bummer of a suggestion, but of course installing MATE 18.3 might eliminate the issue entirely.

Otherwise someone might have to go digging around and figure out how to cross-combine and mix the two systems. :?

Re: Problem running Conky Seamod theme in Linux Mint 18.1 Xfce

You can start the Seamod config on the terminal and use the -D or -DD flags to see more debug info. for example: conky -DD -c /home/sardus/.conky/whatever/seamod/something ...and it might show you what is wrong. If you only installed the 'conky' package and not the 'conky-all' package then you will ...
