Man O' Man Conky is such a Time Sucker! Decided to find a script and modify thinking it's easy.
Spend at least 4-5 hours trying and tweaking to get everything working just right.

Image
Desktop Jan. 30th Conky Script by Orbmiser, on Flickr

Had to tweak and modify from the original
https://github.com/circumjacence/ConkyInfinitySVG
and don't understand how these coders can figure it all out as doesn't seem to be any gui type tools.
To take out the guesswork in positioning,placement of elements and such. Seems kind of arcane and time wasting to code it by guessing?

Tho love some of those Conky wonders.

Do you have your Script for this? This one is very cool.
Everyone is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing it is stupid.

That looks nice, I like how it's layed out. When you post a screenshot you really should cover your IP address with some graphics program so no one gets it. There are thousands of people who will find these posts via Google, who knows who you can trust out there.
You don't need a GUI to do Conky, any changes can be made right in the conky script files through Medit or Gedit. A screen ruler is super helpful for getting your placements right. Once you've worked with conky a while you will get it no problem. Some things confuse me too :lol:

Well gave the link to the script and the modifications I made are just personal system like it defaults eth0 when I use wlan0
Just go to the github link and can download if from there as comes with it's own graphics and folder,etc...

Yep forgot about the I.P. address will have to go and smudge that on my flickr account.

Wasn't transparent on my Kde setup until I added:
So I imagine if your running any kind of compositor then those lines may be needed for transparency.

Code: Select all

own_window_argb_visual yes	# true transparency, a compositor has to be active
own_window_argb_value 0	# make the background semi-transparent
Adjust the own_window_argb_value 0-100 depending on how much tinting you are wanting.

On Dual Displays you will need to add:

Code: Select all

alignment top_left
#alignment top_right
gap_x 2250
gap_y 0
Have alignment top_left selected and top_right commented out. So adjust whether you want it on left display or right.
Also the gap_x 2250 is for center of 2nd right display 1680x1050. Adjust to your preference for monitor size and resolution.

As usual mmesantos1 does Outstanding works and is a Demon with his collection of themes,conky's,etc..
Good Works mmesantos!

This is my current setup

  • Conky on the right uses mrpeachy's 'mounted.lua' to monitor external mounted devices only, of which there are 4 in the image.
  • "mounted.lua" does monitor ALL devices if you want it to.
  • Add your own images or delete the calls.

draw-bg.lua - used by all conkys.

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:

Above and After TEXT  (requires a composite manager or it blinks!)

 lua_load ~/wea_conky/draw_bg.lua
 TEXT
 ${lua conky_draw_bg 10 0 0 0 0 0x000000 0.2}

OR Both above TEXT (no composite manager required - no blinking!)

 lua_load ~/wea_conky/draw_bg.lua
 lua_draw_hook_pre draw_bg 10 0 0 0 0 0x000000 0.2
 TEXT

Note
${lua conky_draw_bg 20 0 0 0 0 0x000000 0.2}
  See below:        1  2 3 4 5 6        7

${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

1 = 20             corner_radius
2 = 0             x_position
3 = 0             y_position
3 = 0             width
5 = 0             height
6 = 0x000000      color
7 = 0.4           alpha

Nice! The Conky-Infinity isn't a easy one to configure. I'm a newb to Conky and that's the one I started with. I finally got every thing lined up and managed to get the network SSID under the IP Address.

Note: I DID NOT make this conky myself. I installed it from (link below) and modified it to my liking. All development credit goes to NoobsLab. Also, I am aware that my "/" and "/home" directories are the same but I didn't realize that they should/could be different when I first installed linux and haven't gotten around to changing it.

I just got conky today, and the Infinity theme for it caught my eye immediately. So here's some of the changes I made to it.

Whoah. Those are nice, clean conky configs.

I'm adding a separate battery ring to my conky config, and the battery percentage won't show up on the ring? I tried uncommenting the standard one that came with the lua script that you could use in place of cpu2, but that didn't work either. Can someone point me in the right direction? Here's the section for the battery ring.

Code: Select all

	{
		name='battery_percent',
		arg='bat1',
		max=100,
		bg_colour=0xffffff,
		bg_alpha=0.1,
		fg_colour=0xe00707,
		fg_alpha=0.8,
		x=165, y=170,
		radius=90,
		thickness=5,
		start_angle=210,
		end_angle=300
	},
I'm using an Asus x501a laptop with a standard battery. Do I need to use a different battery argument for my particular hardware?

EDIT: Turns out that the BAT1 that was included in the script, which I (incorrectly) assumed would work, wasn't default. I found the default battery object and it's working great now!

Ta-da! Now if only I could get it to keep running...

The problem is that as soon as I minimize the terminal window (or any window that is open on the desktop, or that I open and then close), conky disappears. Any ideas?

add conky to your start up programs that should do it and you wont have to use the terminal to open it

I did that, but as soon as I open a window and close it again conky goes away. And I don't know why!

Greetings all,

I'm new to Conky and now addicted to getting a decent setup happening.

As for why Conky dissapears when he closes a window, I really can't say but I saw an option for running Conky in a window ("own_window_transparent") mine is set to no and doesn't have that issue. Maybe this might help? Just tossing a random idea out there from utterly basic experience :)

I really need Conky to display a Korean font and I can't get it to do it. Any suggestions would be great.
