Thank you
Don't know what you are talking about here, "run 16 on boot, read three and shut them down etc."

And the next sentence also, why would I need to killall and restart four? I just want to either create one that will span the top of screen (with the Conky I have) or run multiple across top and put a little of the script I'm using in each one. I've tried to make it wider, and generally played with the width and height settings to no avail. Either way it is nice to use the manager, but I'm guessing some of these things will not be possible using it?
RE: Run 16 on boot
When I start my computer, I start 16 conkys. Three are in "Windows" just like other applications

If you take "undecorated" out of the line:

Code: Select all

own_window_hints skip_taskbar,skip_pager,undecorated,below,sticky
conky will start up in a "window" just like any other app, you can read it and close it the same way you do Firefox. Like this, my test conky above my text editor:
Image
That feature comes in handy at times.

RE: Why "killall conky" and restart a fixed list of conkys (4 in the example)
Well, at times I kill all my conkys to test/develop conkys for other people. With that little bash script that starts all my conkys when I fire-up my computer in the morning the killall does nothing but it starts my conkys.

So if I'm testing a couple of conkys for someone and finish the work I simply call that script and it kills the 'test' conkys and starts mine again. You could use a similar script without the "killall" command to start two conkys you want when you start up your computer. Most people aren't as conky crazy as I am and actually leave them running all the time. :)

Also: If you only run one conky you don't need a bash script to start you conky at all. Just:

Code: Select all

conky
if you use: ~/.conkyrc
and IF you need a delay time use the built in conky delay

Code: Select all

 -p | --pause= SECONDS
    Time to pause before actually starting Conky
so:

Code: Select all

conky -p 10
will start your ~/.conkyrc after 10 seconds - give your desktop a chance to start. :)

That's what I thought, way over my head LOL. I can see how this is addicting and fun! :D

I was using this script to start conky in home.

Code: Select all

!#/bin/bash
sleep 10 && conky;

Like I said you can eliminate the "script" and just use:

Code: Select all

conky -p 10
and if by chance you had two conkys the second 'could be':

Code: Select all

conky -c /path/to/second/whatever_you_call_it -p 10
Sample:

hehehehe stick around, if trytip doesn't get you addicted - I might, because you are right, it's addicting and fun. It's fun in the way of: "I wonder if I can do XYZ. And for that reason I have a test conky. :)

@trytip - That Aurora stuff is awesome - just updated my Aurora-v2 to the latest v3. But there is a few OOPIES! in the LUA scripts (still).

For example:
  1. white_eye_duo_core.lua
    • -> LUA shows: cpu0 & cpu1
  2. white_eye_quad_core.lua
    • -> LUA shows: cpu0, cpu1, cpu2 & cpu3
  3. white_eye_octa_core.lua
    • -> LUA shows: cpu0, cpu1, cpu2, cpu3, cpu4, cpu5, cpu6, cpu7
  4. seamod_rings_cpu_2core_hc_white.lua
    • -> LUA shows: cpu0 & cpu1
  5. seamod_rings_cpu_4core_hc_white.lua
    • -> LUA shows: cpu0, cpu1, cpu2 & cpu3
  6. seamod_rings_cpu_8core_hc_white.lua
    • -> LUA shows: cpu0, cpu1, cpu2, cpu3, cpu4, cpu5, cpu6, cpu7
all show one core less then advertised. because they use: cpu0 as a core

AMD uses CPU's for 'cores'
Intel uses CORES for 'cores'

But conky uses CPU 1 to 4 for a 'quad' core chip - be it Intel or AMD
${cpu cpu1}
${cpu cpu2}
${cpu cpu3}
${cpu cpu4}

and this:
${cpu} OR ${cpu cpu0} is an "Average" of those 4 CORE's (Intel) or CPU's (AMD)

not bad pcpunk i only got into conky last year. before that i always wanted to learn but i just never went into editing conkyrc. i just downloaded someones conky and if it worked i used it if not deleted the whole conky folder and put it off another year. sad now that the new conky uses a different code. :evil: :evil: :evil: now i have to learn a new language? i'll probably put that off like i did with the other and use what i know, and don't upgrade conky to the new version ... keep at it you'll understand more

here's a timebar i edited from someone elses work :mrgreen: but i like it better

link to conky
EDIT: forgot the fonts so i re-upload ... open fonts and install OR copy to .fonts

@ trytip - re the new conky: I agree, it's LUA based, and slower. It does come with a converter though - that works on most old conkys.
Still - it's a learning curve. I'm staying with nine as long as I can

@pcpunk - sorry, a few doctors took me away for a bit. Will get back to your two liner. :)

Nothing too fancy, I took the config "drphibes" from https://github.com/brndnmtthws/conky/wiki/User-Configs and adapted it to my needs.

This is a very nice 8 core conky and has both the temperatures and frequencies in it! I cobbled it together from a 4 CPU conky. Maybe you can customize it to your own liking and use it yourself. Please post an image of yours if you do so.

Actually you are only showing 7 cores and the "Average" of your 8 core chip.

This is a "conky" thing.

@Sector11 thanx for that explanation on the cpu average, all this time i was using cpu0 and cpu1 as my core 1-2, oh well still learning. now i see that one of my cores always has a higher usage than the other, and was completely neglecting core.

BTW: is there a simple script code for your public internet address? i use the wget one but that makes the conky not show up on desktop and takes a few times killing conky to get that going.

Code: Select all

${execi 900 wget http://checkip.dyndns.org/ -q -O - | grep -Eo '\<[[:digit:]]{1,3}(\.[[:digit:]]{1,3}){3}\>'}

You're welcome trytip.

I don't bother with public internet address. The way I look at it, if I can read your post - I'm here :)

Thanks for pointing out the 8th core average problem. If you know how to fix it please edit the conky and post it for us.

The "weather conky" is just the Weather Desklet from LM 18. I prefer it to any of the conkies I've seen.

I did not include any internet speed info in the conky because I prefer the one in the Applets package that sits in the tool bar/Panel where it can be seen without having to minimize your open programs. As for the IP info, I find it to not be necessary. If you are connected you will know it.

Hi,

Something is not right as I am losing all my temperatures on CPUs 4 through 8. I don't know why. Maybe check your code again?

Thanks!

Well, we've both made an OOPSIE! I think

Your original code has temps for "Core 3" 5 times. So when I changed them to reflect 4, 5, 6, 7.

Do you have a Quad Core CPU that has had the hidden cores unlocked? As I said I'm not an Intel guy I use an AMD.

Could you post the output of "sensors" and put it inside code blocks please.

I'm guessing you only have temps for the first 4 cores.

It would take an "Intel" user to do this properly ... for example if a quad core is unlocked is it like this:

Core 0 - Unlocked as Core 4
Core 1 - Unlocked as Core 5
Core 2 - Unlocked as Core 6
Core 3 - Unlocked as Core 7

If so
Temperature for Core 0 = temp for Core 4
Temperature for Core 1 = temp for Core 5
Temperature for Core 2 = temp for Core 6
Temperature for Core 3 = temp for Core 7

And that is the way I have this set up:
