i have to admit i'm at a bit of a loss... i don't have a dual display setup and am honestly not sure how conky handles situations like that...

Re: Ghost1227's Desktop Workshop

Well how about you make just a gasmask theme along the lines o 1680x1050 (your choice) preferably blackback ground and i can implement the other monitorno problem by adding the extra black space to the wallpaper.  If not thanks anyway.

Re: Ghost1227's Desktop Workshop

Nothing complex at very least a list top left one top right ..... but I know it could be better

maybe a bullet list '.' for how urgent [although my todos are more, get done when they are done!]

I mix work and home stuff in one list and it looks confusing

Going to look at Todo.txt.

http://wiki.github.com/ginatrapani/todo … with-conky

Needs work that looks real messy!!!!!

Re: Ghost1227's Desktop Workshop

@Mr. Green - Does this look any cleaner? I used a small script to massage the todo.txt output a bit. Note - my wallpaper rotates every 2 min, so sometimes the list & calendar isn't super readable, but given lack of conky semi-transparency, I don't mind smile I love the simplicity of todo.txt and the aim bot for using it with my phone. Calender entries are from Google calender.

Sorry - not trying to offtopic the thread!

Re: Ghost1227's Desktop Workshop

@firecat53 you are on topic its Desktop related, I am not keen on the numbers in list output colour for priority would be better but not a great issue for me, a couple of lists would be more than enough for ;-)

Just because it's called Ghost1227's Desktop Workshop doesn't mean that others aren't welcome to post their own tips/scripts if they beat me to something, I've got a lot going on in RL right now and sometimes you'll just be more on the ball than me. Nice job on the script!

I accomplished this with a single conky. Quite simple too...

${color 000000}${font Corazon:size=25}TODO${font}
${hr}
${color 000000}${exec grepp todo /path/to/todo | sed "1 d"}


${color 000000}${font Corazon:size=25}WORK${font}
${hr}
${color 000000}${exec grepp work /path/to/todo | sed "1 d"}

and the todo list...

[todo]
Windscreen
Car insurance
Other shit

[work]
Ebay items
Check Listings
Ikea stuff

It does require grepp, the grep by paragraph implementation I have posted in AUR.

Not technically a theme, Day And Night is a time-based wallpaper changer that depends on nitrogen.

Re: Ghost1227's Desktop Workshop

Ok.

Lets take Taco Bell as an example. They list their menues on colorfull boards - jumbled in between taco menues, condiments and soft drinks conky could list system stats. Perhaps even mpd/mocp song listings.

It's a pretty silly idea, but tacos seems to be a reoccuring theme within the Archosphere and it might be fun.
