that's really nice.  what weather/amarok scripts are you using?  also, can you give me a brief overview of what the goto do? goto x position 5, for example, or line 5 on conky?

thanks!

Re: conky configs and screenshots!

Heres mine... along with a pacman script I made for it.

http://bayimg.com/naDMiaaCA

background yes
use_xft yes
xftfont Sans:size=10
xftalpha 0.5

default_color CCC

draw_shades no
draw_outline no
draw_borders no
draw_graph_borders no

own_window yes
own_window_transparent yes
own_window_type dock

own_window_hints undecorated, sticky, below, skip_pager, skip_taskbar

update_interval 1
double_buffer yes

alignment top_left
gap_x 12
gap_y 36
minimum_size 200

TEXT
${color Tan2}Time$color $hr

TIP: Append a couple new lines for the pacman script so conky doesn't vertically cut off it's output.

The pacman script:

#!/usr/bin/env python
import commands

def echo_lst():
    status, output = commands.getstatusoutput("pacman -Qu")
    if not "no upgrades found." in output:
        pkglst, sep, junk = output.partition("Total Download Size:")
        pkglst = pkglst.split()
        del pkglst[0:6]
        del sep, junk
        if len(pkglst) > 1:
            print("{0} updated package(s) available:".format(len(pkglst)))
        elif not len(pkglst) == 0:
            print("The world is ending, please back up your data.")
        for pkg in pkglst:
            print(":: {0}".format(pkg))
    else:
        print("No updated packages available.")

echo_lst()

thanks!

No problem.  First of all, I completely forgot to add my temperature and voltage monitoring meters back in, so I updated my config above.

The weather portion consists of two scripts.  The first (getweather.py) is a cronjob, run around every 15 minutes, that pulls weather data from weather.com's XML file (which I had to sign up for to get a publisher key or whatever).  It stores it to a text file (~/.conky/wdata), which can be parsed by weather.sh (e.g. weather.sh 1 1 returns the first item in the first row of the weather data).  This is nice because I can apply effects to all of the items individually without wasting bandwidth (i.e. I only have to pull the XML file once every 15 minutes).

The amarok portion is also two scripts (amarokstatus.py, amarokprogress.py) -- one for the "now playing" status and one for the progressbar.  Neither is very complicated...  I just used some DBUS calls.

Finally, I have nvtemp.sh for monitoring my GPU temperature settings.

Scripts are here:
http://jwcxz.com/pictures/desktop/09-08/conkyscripts/

$goto allows you to place text at any horizontal location on the line.  E.g. if you want to put some text 20 pixels from the left, do ${goto 20}.  $voffset allows you to offset your text vertically.  In my configuration, I managed to save some space by scrunching up lines in each section with ${voffset -2}...  It's a little messy, but the result is pretty nice.

Re: conky configs and screenshots!

Mostly posting this for the MPD info, here are the scripts (based on xd-0's work):

#!/bin/bash
# Script to use with conky to display cover art. You should modify
# the path to the directory containing the album art

# Array to extract the necessary data from MPD running on another
# system than localhost, in one call to save your CPU. Thanks to 
# bruenig for pointing me to what bash - yet again - can do here
IFS=$'\t' mpd_array=( $(MPD_HOST=amalthea MPD_PORT=6666 mpc --format "\t%artist%\t%album%\t") )

# Link the cover into /tmp so the conky cover instance can pick it up
# Make sure we don't relink all the time, it's a waste of CPU cycles
# and SSD memory cells
if [[ ! -f /tmp/"${mpd_array[1]}".album ]] ; then
  rm -f /tmp/*.album &>/dev/null
  >/tmp/"${mpd_array[1]}".album
  ln -sf ~/graphics/album\ art/*"${mpd_array[1]} 300.jpg" /tmp/cover.jpg || ln -sf ~/graphics/album\ art/"${mpd_array[0]} - ${mpd_array[1]} 300.jpg" /tmp/cover.jpg
fi
# ~/.conky-mpd - displays mpd info, to be used with ~/.conky-cover

own_window_type        desktop
own_window_transparent yes
own_window_hints       undecorated,below,sticky,skip_taskbar,skip_pager


alignment       tl
draw_shades     no
double_buffer   yes
gap_x           155
gap_y           55

TEXT
${if_running ncmpc}
${execi 2 ~/scripts/cover.sh}
${image /tmp/cover.jpg -s 120x120}
${endif}

Advantages
* links to album image instead of copying it to /tmp
* only updates link to album image if album changes (other song, same album = same cover art, same file, no relink)
* song title will start scrolling if it doesn't fit within the conky window
* will ignore the artist name in the cover art file name so it will still work with cover art of multi-artist albums
* if multiple albums exist with the same album name but by different artists it will use both artist and album name to link to the correct image
* nothing will be displayed if ncmpc is not running (you can substitute this for whatever app you want conky to check for to start displaying info)

Disadvantages
* none to my knowledge, except for just being stupid and calling mpc every time for info instead of setting mpd_host and mpd_port in the conky settings...

The script (first code snippet) might need some adaptation depending on your situation (path, file names of the album art) but the skeleton is there.

For those using mpd on localhost you can just replace all the mpc calls with the mpd_ functions conky already provides.

Is there a reason why you don't use mpd_host and mpd_port in your config? That should save you from all of those execi mpc stuff..

Re: conky configs and screenshots!

Thanks smile.

The problem is the mpd_ functions don't take any arguments, hence you can only use MPD running on localhost and the default port.

Thank you, but that one doesn't really match the fonts that I use. I was hoping for something that looked more like the console font that I have in those conky screenshots.

Thanks again for trying.

Re: conky configs and screenshots!

Lol no we don't tongue.

Edit: i just bumped into a problem I was thinking about yesterday while modifying the cover.sh script to only work with the album title - two MTV Unplugged albums tongue.

I implemented a fallback function so if linking to the album cover fails based on the name of the album alone it will try to link to it using the name of the artist too. It doesn't look nice but it does the job.

The conky for the image would be : ( i am at work so  i can't exactly check it)
X would be the random update interval of the image.

Re: conky configs and screenshots!

in conky I was using this pl to see the number of packages to actualize:

#!/usr/bin/perl

and this in a hourly cron:

#!/bin/bash
pacman -Sy 1>/dev/null 2>&1

but... it is not working after the latest pacman update?

pacman -Qu output has changed. it now lists the upgrades, and if there are none has no output. now you can get the number of packages available to upgrade with a simple

pacman -Qu | wc -l

For those of us who are completely perplexed by all of this, is it a simple matter of changing the third line of this script?

#!/bin/sh
# save resources by querying the db once, reuse the output
output=`pacman -Qu`
numofup=`echo "$output" | grep Targets | sed 's/Targets (\([0-9]*\).*/\1/' `
if [ -n "$numofup" ]; then
sizeofup=`echo "$output" | grep "Total Installed Size" \
                         | cut -d ':' -f 2             \
                         | sed 's/^ *//'` 

# pacman -Qu wont tell us how much to dl, skipping this one
#dlsize=`echo "$output" | grep "Total Download Size" \
#                       | cut -d ':' -f 2          \
#                       | sed 's/^ *//'` 
echo "\${color}""$numofup New Packages Available"

#echo -e "\${alignr}\${color}($dlsize / $sizeofup)" 
#echo -e "\t \${color0}" "dl/inst" "\${alignr}\${color}$dlsize / $sizeofup" 
echo -e "\${color}Install Size:" "\${alignr}\${color}$sizeofup" 
else
echo "\${color}""System up-to-date"
fi

The only problem with this is when you have one or more packages in your IgnorePkg list (in pacman.conf) and you don't want those to be a part of the count. Because pacman -Qu lists them too, here's what I did..

pacman -Qu | grep -v "$(sed -n '/^Ign/!d; s/^IgnorePkg.*= //; s/ /\\|/gp' /etc/pacman.conf)" | wc -l

Not that pretty I guess, but does the job..

Re: conky configs and screenshots!

This is my 2 conky scripts on the left and right sides, with MPD + ncmpcpp, midnight commander, and htop in the middle on the terminator terminal using devilspie to embed it on xfce4/xfwm4.

Here's what I have been using since the pacman 3.3 upgrade.
It ain't pretty because I only know a bit of sed and not much bash

#!/bin/bash
#A plugin script for conky to show any available arch linux sofware updates.
#Last modified on 10/AUGUST/2009
#version 0.8
#This version supports very basic display priority, and can be changed to suit the users needs.

NOP=6               #change this to display the maximum Number Of Packages in the display
NEED1=kernel        #change this to whatever package is most important to you
NEED2=pacman        #change this to your 2nd most important package


IGNORE=`cat /etc/pacman.conf | grep IgnorePkg | wc -l` 
let IGNORE=IGNORE+1
 
NUM=`pacman -Qu | sed -n "$IGNORE"~1p | wc -l`

#start building the text to show on screen.
 
if [ $NUM -gt 0 ]; then
 
 echo "There are $NUM new updates" 
pacman -Qu | sed -n "$IGNORE"~1p | sed -e '/'$NEED1'/b' -e '/'$NEED2'/b' -e d
pacman -Qu | sed -n "$IGNORE"~1p | sed -n '/'$NEED1'/!p' | sed -n '/'$NEED2'/!p' | head -n $NOP

 
 else
    echo "There are no new updates"
    echo "Arch is upto date :)"

Run it in a terminal to see if it works for you guys too, I only have one package on hold, and it works for me.
