Could it be the classic transparency issue? I think using feh to manage your desktop background will aid conky setup on kde4.x Please have a look at this thread for more information.

Hm, I had a similar issue with compiz once and fixed it by changing the "window type" in conky. If the feh trick doesn't work you could try that.

own_window_type >>> normal, desktop or override

Re: conky configs and screenshots!

That config is pretty impressive I must say, there is one thing I would suggest to improve it with.

If your using my conkyForecast script then you're also using the conky weather font and the WF datatype for the current weather symbol I assume? If this is what is being used may I suggest that you use the $image variables in conky to display an image for the weather rather than a font...the new datatype to provide the image path is "WI". If a template is used then this path can be placed inside an $image variable easily in the template and exec'ed through execpi

I hope I made sense, any questions just ask

Nice work smile

Thank you! Yes, I'm using your conkyForecast script with the weather font (there is a little setup guide + links in the documentation of the conky-script).
I didn't know that the script could also provide images, thank you very much for the suggestion.

Great work with the script btw! smile

Just tested it... very nice, thanks again!

What, that little readme was useful! Documentation is NOT my strong point

Something I introduced based on my gtk-desktop-info app contents, once images were supported in conky. My player scripts also provide image paths for the cover art of the currently playing track (were available and/or coded for). I have created a bunch of python scripts, they'll all in the AUR, click on the link in my sig to see them. They all install from the source files on launchpad so are up-to-date.

Edit: already on conky hardcore - I think Bruce may want to update the page for it...
I would also suggest getting this up on conky.linux-hardcore.com, it is very much worth showing off wink I think quite a few different distro users frequent that place and would find an example like this quite inspiring...

Have you thought about using the lua scripting now available with conky for anything new? Not sure what animation could be done on value changes for example...

Edit: Like your mpd_infos.py script, I ended up using mpdcron which I "hook" on song changes and generate updated sym links to the cover art and lyrics, you should check it out. http://alip.github.com/mpdcron/ - mpdcron-git in the AUR

I'll definitely play with it some more when I have more free time. Currently I'm in the midst of my exam period. sad

Oh, mpdcron is nice... I probably wouldn't have written the script if I knew about it. wink

I hope you don't mind helping me a little with the forecast script, there is one thing I haven't figured out until now. Do you know if it is possible to set an max char length for the CT datatype inside a template? (10 characters for example)
This could be done if I run the script inside conky via execi and just cut the output but I dunno how to do this when I use a template!

This is what I do for cover art, I have a similar script for lyrics, which are retrieved through Sonata in the first instance
~/.mpdcron/hooks/player:

#!/usr/bin/env sh
hooks/coverart.sh
hooks/lyrics.sh

~/.mpdcron/hooks/coverart.sh:

#!/usr/bin/env sh
# get cover (if found) and copy it to /tmp/cover
coverfile="$HOME/.covers/$MPD_SONG_TAG_ARTIST-$MPD_SONG_TAG_ALBUM.jpg"
#blankcoverfile="$HOME/.covers/nocover.jpg"
outputcoverfile="/tmp/coverart.jpg"
if [ -f "$coverfile" ]; then
    rm -f "$outputcoverfile"
    echo "coverart.sh - Linking '$outputcoverfile' to cover file '$coverfile'"
    ln -s "$coverfile" "$outputcoverfile"
else
    rm -f "$outputcoverfile"

In theory you could use the $scroll variable in the template to marquee the extra text length you don't want?

It has to be in the template for it to work, as there are no options to reduce length in the script (yet). There is a -c/--centeredwidth option, at present it doesn't truncate when set smaller than the actual output...I am tempted to have it trim from the right any text length bigger than was set...would this be helpful to use? If the text was smaller than the set length then it would be padded with spaces either side...

Thanks for sharing the cover script!
You may want to add local album paths (the album dirs) like I did in my script. This is kinda nice if you don't have all your covers in ~/.covers like me. wink

I have another python script somewhere I knocked up to retrieve off the web too, I should use mix that and yours together to automate the whole cover art gathering function

I have just updated conkyForecast, and uploaded a new PKGBUILD to the AUR for the new code revision...--centeredwidth will now truncate or expand a string to the size set. Do your "yaourt/bauerbill/packer -S conkyforecast-bzr" for an updated script wink

Cheers

Re: conky configs and screenshots!

After reading through this thread I have learned that conky can display images big_smile

So... because I am a dedicated skier, I decided to use conky to display me some nice skis on the desktop:
tM2pnNQ

I have also wrote a script that picks a random ski from given folder, and made conky to call it every 30 seconds, so the ski image changes constantly:
tM2pnOA

.conkyrc:

alignment bottom_middle
double_buffer yes
use_xft yes
xftfont DejaVu Sans Mono:size=12
gap_x 0
gap_y 40
own_window yes
own_window_class Conky
own_window_type normal
own_window_transparent yes
own_window_hints undecorate,below,sticky,skip_taskbar,skip_pager
stippled_borders 0
update_interval 1.0
uppercase no
use_spacer none
minimum_size 1000 100
show_graph_scale no
show_graph_range no

TEXT
${execpi 30 ~/scripts/randomimage.sh}

randomimage.sh:

files=(~/Images/Show/*)
N=${#files[@]}
((N=RANDOM%N))
randomfile=${files[$N]}
echo \$\{image $randomfile -p 0,0 -s 1000x100\}

That's a pretty cool idea he has there, but i dont think i'd use it. Doesn't look like i'd be easy to customize from there.
