Conky and Cinnamon. Can it be done? (SOLVED)

Postby Dave W. » Sat Jan 28, 2012 10:19 am

Hello everyone!

I'm liking LM12 very much. I have had little success in using conky with Cinnamon and Gnome 3. Classic Gnome as well as Gnome no effects are fine. Is this a desktop effects issue? Is there a way to use conky in Cinnamon?

Thanks,
Dave

Yep!

I'm using a minimal modified conky that I borrowed from my #! setups.

Code: Select all

# conky configuration
#
# The list of variables has been removed from this file in favour
# of keeping the documentation more maintainable.
# Check http://conky.sf.net for an up-to-date-list.
#
# For ideas about how to modify conky, please see:

I commented out the lines referring to "no compositer" and now have my conky.

I guess it helps to read the info in one's conky. :oops: :D
