So I am running linux mint. I have been trying to get conky to show the album art work and song info of what's playing on rhythmbox. I have searched and searched but every one I find I can't get working.
I have tried: ... album-art/
Mainly, I found others but didn't seem like what I was looking for.
Currently my script is:

Code: Select all

sleep 20 && conky -c /home/drystin/.conkyrc

# Configuration Conky
double_buffer yes
update_interval 1
background yes

own_window yes
own_window_transparent yes

own_window_hints undecorated,below,sticky,skip_taskbar,skip_pager

use_xft yes
override_utf8_locale no
xftfont Telegraphem:size=9
xftalpha 0.8
draw_shades yes
draw_outline no
draw_borders no

use_spacer no

border_margin 0
border_width 0

default_color orange
default_outline_color white

Everything is working fine, but I can't get rhythmbox to work.
In the above link it said something like chmod the file to x+. I know what chmod is most forums require you to chmod files to 666 or 777 before you install them such as mybb. But I don't know how to do this on linux or to x+.
Help is appreciated.
