fixed the colors to look more aesthetic, that took quite a while :D still not sure about the green cpu cores couldn't decide where to use the green as the further to the middle i get the harder it is to see it, oh well another time

How do I do this? I like this, but am not sure how to get it to do what I see. Do I use EMACS?

I have it up, but how do I move it to the right of the screen, and also modify it?

According to this:

Code: Select all

# Text alignment, other possible values are commented
#alignment top_left
alignment top_right
#alignment bottom_left
#alignment bottom_right

it should be on the right.

How to modify: if you saved it as ~/.conkyrc

<text_editor> ~/.conkyrc

That is an old conky (conkyForecast is defunct) and you will need all the fonts it uses.
I don't see the screenshot coffee_and_cream was refering to, can you give a link please.

You really should look at a mono font for your calendar so the columns line up. :)

No big art-thing or whatever. But just a simple desktop where I can read some important things. Especially my inbound and outbound connections. You never know with the NSA :mrgreen:

Hi, could you tell me what you used as background? Is it one color or is it changing colors, some a bit lighter than the rest? It's really hard to see.
I like that very much but can't reproduce it (yet).

This is my Conky at the moment. I like to have it with a lighter background though, but didn't manage to get a good color combination which is nice on the eyes and still well readable.

Hi, could you tell me what you used as background? Is it one color or is it changing colors, some a bit lighter than the rest? It's really hard to see.
I like that very much but can't reproduce it (yet).

not sure which background you mean. the panels or the conky or the wallpaper? the panels are a .png and so are the conkys

this is the top panel
Image

this is the bottom panel
Image

and this is the background for conky
Image

getting the .png to fit into the conky was no small task. i used this code in conky but not sure it works with the new conky

Code: Select all

${image ./back.png -p -2,-2 -s 227x700}

if you save a picture in the same directory as your conky you would use this code 227 is width and 700 is length. but your conky has to be semi transparent but for that depending on desktop i use dock if normal doesn't work

Code: Select all

#all options for own_window_type are normal, desktop, dock, panel or override
I love Windows, they give my walls personality.

I really do not understand this "semi-transparent" thing I have been seeing in conky of late, what is it and where does it come from? I don't see it in the conky man page.

Code: Select all

own_window_transparent    Boolean, set transparency? If ARGB visual is enabled, sets background opacity to 0%.

own_window_transparent yes
Image
own_window_transparent no
Image


Images can be put anywhere:

Code: Select all

${image /home/sector11/images/Subdirs/Grey_c1.png}
${image /media/5/Conky/images/Grey_c2.png -p 600,0}
${image /media/10/Mint/images/Grey/Grey_c3.png -p 0,600}
${image /media/10/Delete.png -p 0,600}

size (-s) and position (-p) does not depend on where the images are.

Conky shown is running in BunsenLabs (Debian) - OpenBox and set as:

Code: Select all

own_window_type normal

Hi DeMus,
I see you have overlapping graphs in your Hard Disks section, cool, mind sharing how you did that?

^ Use ${voffset}
voffset (pixels)
Change vertical offset by N pixels. Negative values will cause text to overlap. See also $offset.

Bars with Text inside <-- same idea
