OK, will come up with a "hard coded" sample shortly. What is your screen width?

it's semi-transparent on my screen not sure how it is on yours


Thanks trytip, that's a nice one! Added "alignment top_right" and all is super!

Thanks again guys for the Conky support!

I want to get my Conky to appear across the top of my screen. I don't know if this can be done with Conky Manager or if it needs to be done manually? Because, I think the script will need to be X2, meaning two conky scripts along side of each other. I tried doing this with the Manager but only one will run at a time. What I want is to take the top part of the script I have to create the first script, and the bottom half to create the second. Or, if this can be done with one script that would be cool also. I've seen Horizontal Conky's so I think it is possible.

Sector11 was going to make one for me but appears got busy.

Thanks, pcpunk

Sector11, this one looks super so far! If you want to show me the needed changes to put that text into a long consecutive line like that I will try to take over.

Sorry - I thought I read that you were going to do it and then a birthday, an anniversary and a running around for a sick MIL took me away from the the keyboard.

Let's start with some tips (all your options of course).

First:
Image
I prefer using GHz vs MHz for CPU frequency as the output is always the save (number of characters) and if building all things on a line it stops this 'shifting about' - it's a matter of choices and preferences.
freq (n) - - Returns CPU #n's frequency in MHz. CPUs are counted from 1. If omitted, the parameter defaults to 1.
freq_g (n) - - Returns CPU #n's frequency in GHz. CPUs are counted from 1. If omitted, the parameter defaults to 1.


Second: creating the double (or multiple) lines

Code: Select all

TEXT
text line1 ${conky command 1}\
   ${goto xx2}text line1 ${conky command 2}\
   ${goto xx3}text line1 ${conky command 3}\
   ${goto xx4}text line1 ${conky command 4}\
   ${goto xx5}text line1 ${conky command 5}  start here
text line2 ${conky command 2}\
   ${goto xx2}text line2 ${conky command 2}\
   ${goto xx3}text line2 ${conky command 3}\
   ${goto xx4}text line2 ${conky command 4}\
   ${goto xx5}text line2 ${conky command 5}  start here
${goto xxx}start here


In the TEXT section:
1. after text line1 ${conky command 1} add a couple of spaces with a start here - for where the next command on line one will be.
2. text line2 ${conky command 1} add a couple of spaces with a start here - for where the next command on line one will be.
- - make sure the two start here are lined up
3. below that (temporary line 3) start with a ${goto xxx}start here - where xxx will place the start here directly below the other two.

Now for the second command on each line:
4. directly after the output of each command on line 1 and 2 add a \ + [Enter]+[Tab]${goto xxx}start here
- - again these goto's are to match the start hereon the third line
- - the [Tab] is a personal preference to help find things as the conky grows.

Repeat this process until you get everything done like this.
Image

Notice that I used a full horizontal conky to do this only making the changes above the stuff above this line part.
my screen width is 1920 wide so I have room to play.

And the conky that is doing all that - of course you will need to change things ...

In the codeof the post above this you'll see (dots) used }<10}··${cpu cpu2} to represent spaces

001% to 009% has two, 010 to 099% has 1 and 100% none.
But this is a conky under construction I want to see the spaces.

Normally I use "spaces" like: }<10} ${cpu cpu2} or I will use a grey colour for 0's

Code: Select all

${alignc}CPU Total ${if_match ${cpu cpu0}<10}${color1}00${color6}${cpu cpu0}\
${else}${if_match ${cpu cpu0}<100}${color1}0${color5}${cpu cpu0}\
${else}${color9}${cpu cpu0}${endif}${endif}${color5}%${color}

Let's simplify it.
Image

Code: Select all

You can make one long line in conky like this. Now is the time for all good men to come the aid of their country.

Or like this:

Code: Select all

You can make one long \
line in conky like this. \
You can make one long \
line in conky like this. Now \
is the time for all good men \
to come the aid of their \
country.

And this works as well for spacing:

Code: Select all

You can make one long |
   ${goto 190}line in conky like this. Now |
   ${goto 424}is the time for all good men |
   ${goto 657}to come the aid of their |
   ${goto 858}country.

and then removing the {space}| and using \ like this:

Code: Select all

You can make one long\
   ${goto 190}line in conky like this. Now\
   ${goto 424}is the time for all good men\
   ${goto 657}to come the aid of their\
   ${goto 858}country.

Easy to do with plain text ... BUT when conky has screen output that "varies" in length like 1% (2 characters) 16% (3 characters) or 100% one must make room!

All in one easy go with a CPU example at the tail end (copy and paste it to a sample conky) - the last two line there are good examples of how conky won't move around:

Code: Select all

TEXT
${color9}${swapbar 0}${color}
You can make one long line in conky like this. Now is the time for all good men to come the aid of their country.
${color9}${swapbar 0}${color}

The script you are using now is so much different than the one I was using, will have to learn much more to pull that off.

One thing I am struggling with is configuring it while looking at it on desktop, you know, so that I can see what I might be changing. When I do this don't seem to be able to view it. I am not even viewing files in .conky, I'm using files in/on my USB to manipulate. I did put the file you made in Conky Manager just to see how close you were to being done lol, it was half of the old and the rest of what you started lol, but it worked! I don't know if I will be able to make this work Sector, but appreciate all the help. I got all this to work with if I need it.

I can't just use that old script in some way? seems as though the new script you made is much more complicated, and I'm lost on it all. I was not even able to change the color lol. One go at making the old script work with the "\"s did not go so well haha, it was just a black box with some white lines in it lol.

I don't use "conky manager" all my conkys are done in a text editor. And I do have a few.

trytip asked:
trytip wrote:can you post your conky that you want across your screen?

now if that's what you are trying to do as I suspect from above... post the code you are referring when you say "can't just use that old script in some way?" - we'll kill 2 birds with one stone:

1. we'll see what trytip comes up with for transparency (semi-transparency), and
2. I'll do my best using your complete conky to make something "across" the top of your screen
- I'll use the same setting you have above TEXT for font etc etc ... just changing what's needed to get it across your screen.
- How wide is your screen?

I understand, I was also just using text editor, but also have conky manager installed because tinytrip suggested it. Then move a file to it when I get it close to being useful.
It was meant as an example, not an actual working conky.

I mean the one that you were modifying for me, it seemed to still be under construction, but I thought I would try it anyhow. The one under this quote above: "And the conky that is doing all that - of course you will need to change things ..."
I realized that the top part was still under construction and the bottom was the old but thought I would throw it in there and see what I was working with lol.

We got to work your Signature in there also, and need Black or Dark Grey as Text Color. Really though, if this is to much don't worry about it.

How wide is your screen?
sometimes i can hold it in my palm :mrgreen:

i have no clue about new or old i'm using conky-std 1.9.0-4 with conky-manager 2.4~136~ubuntu14.04.1

#all options for own_window_type are normal, desktop, dock, panel or override
own_window_type override

if you use override then in conky manager you can use pseudo-transparent but it all depends if you have images in your conky. if you don't work with images the best way to get semi-transparent is to use dock BUT when you use dock THERE IS NO top-right or bottom-right

alignment top_right
gap_x 30
gap_y 50 <<< dock will align to the top left ALWAYS so if you want it in the top right forget the alignment top_right
just control the gap_x 680 will move to the right

there's a whole bunch of combinations of transparency and i always control that with conky manager

ps: ah i think i know what you mean now, it's not about transparency but you want it redesigned to cover mostly the top part of your screen. that my friend is a lot of work looks like sector11 is trying his best, i will try see how i manage

I started laughing then thought 'tablet' or a new phone ... so yea, in my palm sounds good.
But when I'm sitting at my dining room table and hold my has out it's just a little wider then my palm. :lol:

[quote="trytip"]i have no clue about new or old i'm using conky-std 1.9.0-4 with conky-manager 2.4~136~ubuntu14.04.1

conky-std 1.9.04 is the old conky (and best IMHO) conky v1.10 is now based on LUA and a different syntax.

own_window_type override means none of the own_window_hints are in affect.
Read it here: config_settings

However one must take into account many things, as you indicated at.

Conky Manager is only a GUI app that does what I, and many others, do with a text editor. I've been making conkys since 2007, I prefer the text editor :)

@pcpunk

1366 wide it is ... I'll do it tomorrow, 00:44 here now and time to sleep.

No hurry at all brother! I will say I'm pretty excited though. I like the overall look of the one I normally use, and if we can get it to go across the Top that would be awesome! looks like it is half way there already!

I don't care if it is all even either. Like the Processes are a little longer from Top to Bottom, that's okay. If the Processes are all the way to the right that it's cool if it hangs down a little. In fact there is plenty of space for it as the care roof tapers off to the right.

Thanks, pcpunk!

NICE CAR!

Some questions:

1. Do you normally use light coloured backgrounds? Or like me - change constantly?
2. Do you want a transparent background or a 'shaded - see through' background.

I recommend shaded text - easier to see on light and mixed backgrounds and doesn't matter on dark / black backgrounds - Test image
Note "bars" are almost not-visible on white with your colour choice and IMHO on a horizontal conky a waste of space.

3. Can I drop the bars?

Created a wallpaper with your screen size in the corner to stay within limits and I'm "at work"

Tapers off to the right ... I like that and it is doable.

Processes can be controlled with top_name_width I have it set to 8 (9 characters)

Unless you want the default of 15?
