Here's my updated version, pretty happy with it now. I'm using the Awoken White icon pack with the latest version of linux mint 12.

Awoken Folder Icon's:

To customize the Awoken icon theme pack do this:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:alecive/antigone
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install awoken-icon-theme
awoken-icon-theme-customization

Then Follow Instructions.

Check your conky version.

If your conky doesn't have that get another version that does.

I went from Mint 11 with Conky working fine to Mint 12 experiencing the same issue as jompa89. My Lua bindings are the same, see below.
Anyone know why Conky doesn't work properly in Mint 12? I have Cinnamon running in my install. Could that be an issue?

It's not my original. I found it here:

I like integrating conky with the desktop behind it. Gives it kind of a zen feel, eh? I just wanted to upload with my progress. When it's done I'll share code / files / etc.

Would you mind to share the wallpaper source? Thanks!

Thanks, the 2 folder and 2 files I used are here:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/5vf5yoyx0y3so ... nge.tar.gz

1) Extract them all to your home folder.

2) Navigate to /HOME/.Accuweather_conky and open accuw_script in leafpad. I've made all the folders hidden, so you might need to Ctrl-H to see it.

3) Put your address in the script where it says to. You can find this by going to http://www.accuweather.com and finding your location then cutting and pasting the url on the page it lands on.

4) I' ve deleted some of the .conky_orange.lua as I only have one core, if you are dual core you can find the original here:

http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=137503 If you do this you might want to change the colours again - the hex code is 9ACD32.

5) You need to have installed lm-sensors and hddtemp, and run sensors-detect (answering yes to everything).

Enjoy!

Fairly new to linux, completely new to conky. Couldn't get it to work at first. Just a simple modification of an existing script but I will make it better as I learn more.
