My conky is in the bottom right hand corner.

The Openbox and GTK2 themes are ones I made for myself, but haven't bothered releasing yet.  (If there's any demand for them just tell me, and I'll put them up somewhere.  They are extreme edits of pre-existing themes, but I am unsure of the original authors names so I'll have to look them up before releasing.)

The panel at the bottom is tint. smile

For my thinkpad, I changed up sen's mira conky a little and added a thinkpad section.  Each block has its own config, and the whole thing is started up by using a script that runs conky -c on each block's config.  I only included .conkyrc_tp below since the rest of it is just sen's config with small adjustments.

Re: conky configs and screenshots!

is there a way to put conky inside a gnu/screen session? i mean, i use screen for everything, i always have a urxvt open and i almost never see my wallpaper, so i want to put conky output inside a screen tab, so i can check it when i want. i installed conky-cli, but it doesn't behave like ordinary conky, it sends it's output without cleaning the screen first, so the output gets garbled inside the terminal

an example:

[aleyscha@aleyscha 8 ~]$ conky
4d 11h/26C | 13%/48.0C/4/152 | 489/409 | /sdb1:12G /sdd1:60G /cdrom:n/a | 71% | 0k/0k | 2/8 | 19:48 06/10/2008

Re: conky configs and screenshots!

AD28:

I like the "compartmentalization" of your conky layout, but I can't completely follow it from the posted configuration. Could you post a simple example of how to do it? I see the offset variables, but I don't see what's generating certain things and I'm just not getting the global layout (is it really just a single column shifted around with offsets?). Sorry if this is obvious, but I'm really tired and decrypting conky configuration syntax just isn't working right now. I'm really just interested in the overall layout, not the particular information inside each panel.

Re: conky configs and screenshots!

@Xyne:

Are you asking about the 2nd conky I posted?  If so, each block is a separate conky config, and they're all started with conky -c in a script.

e.g.

conky -c ~/conky/.conkyrc_status
conky -c ~/conky/.conkyrc_weather
conky -c ~/conky/.conkyrc_net
conky -c ~/conky/.conkyrc_tp
conky -c ~/conky/.conkyrc_sys
conky -c ~/conky/.conkyrc_mpd

It's taken from sen's mira conky with some adjustments and a new thinkpad section. I only posted the new .conkyrc_tp config.. I'll edit my original post to make that more clear.

Re: conky configs and screenshots!

The screenshot that is assaulting your eyes is of the desktop of an oldworld mac  laptop (PowerBook 3400) that I sometimes use at home as a sort of thin client using xdmcp. Along with icewm it has 11 instances of conky running. I know its a bit much but they all run differing update intervals. I used  Xyne's post on how to set up a scrolling Arch package notifier which was perfect for the bottom of the screen. The server/client scripts are on my main Arch box and conky on the laptop connects via ssh and excecutes the client script.

Aha! Thanks, that cleared it up. I thought that you had somehow managed all of that from a single instance of conky. I couldn't find most of the stuff in the display in the config that you posted but thought I might have seen some externally loaded content so I didn't think about it too much.

I suppose that's a clever way to avoid updating everything at short intervals just to display some real-time stuff. How's the resource usage when running multiple instances? Unnoticeable?

Re: conky configs and screenshots!

Using sen's mira setup I had to edit mpd.awk to get it working.  I think it might be because of a different mpc version (?)

Basically my mpc reports 'playing' and 'paused' rather than 'Playing' and 'Paused' so I had to change the strings in mpd.awk to reflect this.

Re: conky configs and screenshots!

6 different conkyrc's, an update script and a startup in a nice little desktop setup:

As the headers for each .conkyrc is mostly the same, aside from the X and Y, I'll just put that up once:

# Create own window instead of using desktop (required in nautilus)
own_window yes
own_window_transparent yes
own_window_type conky

# Use double buffering (reduces flicker, may not work for everyone)
double_buffer yes

# Minimum size of text area
minimum_size 280 5

# Maximum width
maximum_width 150

# Draw shades?
draw_shades no

# Draw outlines?
draw_outline no

# Draw borders around text
draw_borders yes

# Stippled borders?
stippled_borders 0

# border margins
border_margin 5

# border width
border_width 2

# Default colors and also border colors
default_color ffffff

# Text alignment, other possible values are commented
alignment top_left
#alignment top_right
#alignment bottom_left
#alignment bottom_right

# Gap between borders of screen and text
# same thing as passing -x at command line
gap_x 225
gap_y 602

# Subtract file system buffers from used memory?
no_buffers yes

# set to yes if you want all text to be in uppercase
uppercase no

# number of cpu samples to average
# set to 1 to disable averaging
cpu_avg_samples 2

# number of net samples to average
# set to 1 to disable averaging

Re: conky configs and screenshots!

BKJ, I liked that calender! smile Would you mind sharing the calendar.sh script?
Tried to use the "cal" command but it doesn't hightlight the day in Conky.

Re: conky configs and screenshots!

Just a little clock/calendar thingy I did today. I used BKJ's calendar script in the beginning, but then it got stripped down to a little simpler one. I wish there were more useful fixed-width fonts around, but I'm quite happy with this one I found.
2008-10-12_conky.png

Here's the relevant parts of the config

default_color 948b4a
default_outline_color 323811
draw_outline yes
use_xft yes
xftfont Futurist Fixed\-width:bold:size=9

TEXT
${font Futurist Fixed\-width:size=39}${time %H°%M}${font}
${hr}
${execpi 300 cal | sed -e 's/'`date | awk '{print $3}'`'/\$\{color e84448}'`date | awk '{print $3}'`'\$\{color}/'

Note that I'm using $execpi which allows one to use conky formatting with it.

EDIT:
I just remembered I had posted this a long time ago. As some may have noticed, the cal script's got flaws..Just to let you know

Re: conky configs and screenshots!

hey guys,

i was trying to use sen's conky config and as far as i know i followed his guide up to a point when i understood, i copied the fonts to my home directory, as well as the scripts, i then made a folder called .conky and copied the folder Mira_blue into it, up to that point it went well

i then went to make the script, i copied exactly what was on the script and changed it from mira_green to mira_blue, i saved it as conky_start, and placed it firstly in usr/bin/ and then secondly to usr/local/bin.
i restarted and nothing happened, this is a bit different to to the other conky configs, i was used to just editing the conkyrc hidden file but this is different.
so i tried adding the file to th sessions from both directories but obviously one at a time, i even added .pl and .sh to the conky_start file seeing if it would make a difference but again nothing happend i dont no where am going wrong please help as that conky looks lovelly.

tahnks

Re: conky configs and screenshots!

I haven't messed with the Mira files, but make sure the permissions are set right on all the appropriate pieces. When I ported all my conky files from an external hard drive during the great Ubuntu -> Arch changeover, somehow nothing was set to allow execution and it screwed things up greatly.


And in the midst of such perfection,
I can't help but feel diseased.

Re: conky configs and screenshots!

Is your music loading into MPD? I can't quite understand the question. If your music is making into MPD then all should be well and not require any extra work on the part of Gimmix.

Re: conky configs and screenshots!

The quickest and easiest documentation on MPD is in the sample configuration file at /etc/mpd.conf.example

Copy it to /etc/mpd.conf or ~/.mpdconf and edit it to suit your needs. Then make sure to get the mpd daemon to autostart (in rc.conf if you use the global settings, or in your startup session script if you use the config in your home directory).

Oh, and you'll also need to run 'mpd --create-db' before you run it for the first time.

MPD is fundamentally different from other music players. You may not like it, depending on how you like to listen to music. Also, I would recommend Sonata as a client, unless you've already decided that you like gimmix more.

EDIT:
@creslin: Agreed, but I think my post covers what he needed pretty well, and a post telling him to make another thread is still an off-topic post. There needed to be at least one more off topic post either way.
