Hi Doug,greerd wrote:Hey Todd,
I don't follow you on the conky not displaying cpu freq's, I've been using conky for a long time and have only had to tweek my .conkyrc file every now and then to keep up with things. In my screenshot below I have moved my Drives Manager desklet over to the right for simplisity, but my weather desklet stays where it's shown (under conky) on my mint 18 cinnamon box. The Drives Manager gives the red ! but works fine and can also be used as a applet.
I only use the basic .conkyrc but there are some fancy ones out there if you search around. I can post my .conkyrc file here if you'd like to use that as a base.
Thanks for your reply. Yes, what you have working is exactly what I want. I have my weather app at the top but that is not important. Please post your Conkyrc file for me.
I had precisely the same utility from Conky on my PC with LM 17 but switched over to the Info Panel from Screenlets. With the newest Conky I can't even find the utility you are using. I can only find the one that gives one CPU indicater and a single RAM indicator, neither of which even identify the CPU or the amount of RAM. I downloaded the 15 MB utility package that was supposed to be "comprehensive" but the one you have isn't included for some strange reason.
I spent hours and hours trying to get Conky to work the way I wanted but its installation instructions for various utilities are pretty arcane and numerous and I am just not enough of an expert with Linux to even understand what they are saying half of the time! Part of Linux's overall problem is the multitude of methods of installing something--which has simply got to go the way of the Dodo if this OS is ever going to displace Windows.
If there are any specialized instruction for installing your utility please post them in detail. I am using the latest Conky installer but a lot of the utilities remain invisible to it for some reason, especially the ones from Deviant Art.
I too have an 8 core CPU, the Intel i7 4700k overclocked to 4.3GHz, so I want the utility that displays all 8 core just like yours. In fact, my whole PC is made from top quality mainstream parts that hundreds of millions of users have but I have had some pretty hairy installation problems with Linux trying to sort them out. I have an ASUS Z87 Plus motherboard (with the very latest BIOS, which is now 2 years old), 16 GBs of Kingston DDR 3 RAM, an Nvidia MSI GTX-770 video card, a 500 GB Sandisc Ultra II SSD, two Seagate 7200.14 2 GB Baracuda harddrives, a 250 GB Samsung 840 EVO SSD and a Creative Labs Audigy2 ZX Platinum sound card.
Thanks again Doug!
