Nice work. Now show us the code!
agreed.
isnt that what this thread is about?

sort of wrong thread too but you need a .conkyrc in home for conky to read. It then displays on sceen the stuff you asked for in .conkyrc..

best idea is find someeones code (preferably simple) (and preferably for gnome if you are on that), save it in home as .conkyrc (with the .) and run conky again.

PS conky should run at boot, so check in sessions for the entry.

mzsade:

You installed the Conky files from the LinuxMint Repros, but . . . the Conky files are essentially "empty" in the terminal.

I went to these sites to learn how to compile Conky. And how to load them into your terminal and make a folder for them and such.
Not as hard as it sounds and well worthwhile.

That's the second time I've seen a statement to the effect here, so I'd like to chime in. I don't think it's 100% true..

As far as I know, when installing from a .deb, from Synaptic, or from the terminal, a sample (and simple) .conkyrc file is created at /etc/conky/conky.conf. If conky is run with no .conkyrc file in your home folder, it defaults to this file as its template.

Did you install the Pizza Dudes font?

From that article:
Now download the fonts and move them to ~/.fonts directory :

$cd && wget -c http://dl.getdropbox.com/u/83257/conkyfonts.zip && unzip conkyfonts.zip && cp ~/conkyfonts/*.* ~/.fonts/ && rm -rf ~/conkyfonts && rm conkyfonts.zip
I'm surprised it isn't in the tutorial, but after you install a font, you need to regenerate the font cache. You can either do this by rebooting, or by entering a command that I am too tired and lazy to look up right now. If you can find it, use it. Otherwise just reboot. Either way, problem solved.

Managed to include the CPU temp, but surely the readings can't be right, the room temp. at this time is certainly greater than 25 deg. C where i am at!

Thanks to everyone who has posted their conky desktop images and config info. I shed the widgets and gadgets and jumped in to conky with both feet. I wasted away a whole weekend knocking out something I liked. Damn was it fun.

Here is my first conky.

Nothing special, but I have 2 conky's set up on my desktop. One on the top which I have used a top lxpanel at 1 pixel so that the conky display does not get covered when i open or maximize windows. And my second one is the calender that pops up when i click on the Tint2 clock and closes when you left click. And just for those who are curious the bottom panel is a combination of tint2 and lxpanel. Lxpanel is only used for the menu.

Dean: Excellent!! I've alway liked the Conky that goes along the top panel.

Is that an official Lubuntu release or did you load LDXE over Ubuntu . . . or is that a LinuxMint OS?

Either way it looks good. :mrgreen:

No this is a screen shot of lxde on top of ubuntu 9.04 (from mini.iso). I was trying to make a nice, (but light as possible system) which is why i used conky for the calender, instead of a program.

I've had a couple of Linux newbies ask me about my Conky layout recently . . . so I thought, I'd bring the Conky thread into the LinuxMint Forums foreground, again.

I am still using my "single-line across the top" as my Conky layout, as seen in the last couple of posts here.
I've just installed the newer version of Conky and 'tweaked' my .conkyrc files a bit.

If you're interested in compiling/configuring your own Conky . . . you can ask any of us that have a Conky posted.
We're all here to help.

Or check out the official Conky websites > http://conky.sourceforge.net/ and http://conky.linux-hardcore.com/
Also, several of the Ubuntu-based distro Forums have great Conky threads ...
Checkout the Conky Threads in > Ubuntu Forums, CrunchbangLinux Forums, and LinuxMint Forums. :P

Well, I guess I'd be one of the "Linux newbies" vrkalak is talking about. I've been using Mint since Cassandra, but if a newbie is someone who's always learning and asking questions, then I fall solidly under that category.

Anyways, after clicking around gnome-look (surprisingly few xfce conky configs on xfce-look), and making my own modifications, this is what I've come up with:

And here's the .conkyrc configuration:

Code: Select all

#avoid flicker
double_buffer yes

#own window to run simultanious 2 or more conkys
own_window  yes
own_window_transparent yes
own_window_type normal
own_window_hints undecorate,sticky,skip_taskbar,skip_pager 

#borders
draw_borders no
border_margin 20

#shades
draw_shades no

#position
gap_x 4
gap_y 10
alignment bottom_right

#behaviour
update_interval 1

#colour
default_color  8f8f8f
#default_shade_color 000000
own_window_colour 000000

#font
use_xft yes
xftfont sans:size=8

# Force UTF8? note that UTF8 support required XFT
override_utf8_locale yes

#to prevent window from moving
use_spacer none
minimum_size 1024 0

#mpd
#mpd_host localhost
#mpd_port 6600

This is very unlikely to work on anyone elses system without all the scripts it relies on but if you want to take an idea you can look at the code.
