SOLVED: Xmobar-darcs + Conky-Cli not working correctly

I recently noticed that my conky was not displaying in my xmobar area so I decided to run conky in the console to see the output and got a bunch of errors. To begin with I am running:

conky-cli 1.8.0-1
xmonad-darcs 20100401-1
xmobar-dars 20100401-1

Here is the errors from running conky in the console:

       }

and the conky script:

╔═ comhack@Venus 12:27 PM 
╚═══ ~-> cat .scripts/conkyscript 
#!/bin/bash
# Filename: ~/home/comhack/.scripts/conkyscript
conky -c ~/.conkyclirc -i1 -q > conkystat &
sleep 4
killall -q conky
cat conkystat
rm conkystat

and finally my ~/.xinitrc:

╔═ comhack@Venus 12:27 PM 
╚═══ ~-> cat .xinitrc
#!/bin/sh
#
# ~/.xinitrc
#
# Executed by startx (run your window manager from here)
#
xscreensaver -no-splash &     
numlockx &                 
gnome-settings-daemon &
nitrogen --restore &
xsetroot -cursor_name left_ptr 
scripts/conkyscript &
exec ck-launch-session xmonad

I assume this has to do with a package getting upgraded but I cannot figure out which one changed. I tried looking for a .pacsave for conky, xmobar, and xmonad but could not find anything different. I also searched the forums and google but could not find a thread with the same issue. So anyone have an ideal whats going on?

Thanks

Conky is complaining about all sorts of stuff:

Fix that first.

By the way, you don't need conky-cli anymore. The package in the repos supports the "out_to_x no" option.

Re: SOLVED: Xmobar-darcs + Conky-Cli not working correctly

I was thinking about removing that stuff but I was not for sure if conky needed the configurations. The reason being is that I did not I did not get any notifcation from pacman when updating conky. Usually if there is a major change in the upstream configuration file, pacman tells you in the output. As far I know those entries have always been a part of ~/.conkyrc. So I guess I will just back it up and try deleting those entries. Also, thanks for the info about not needed conky-cli anymore.

Re: SOLVED: Xmobar-darcs + Conky-Cli not working correctly

Well I removed conky-cli and installed regular conky package and now I do not get the errors for the entries above. I then added the option you listed:

The package in the repos supports the "out_to_x no" option

but I still get:

Re: SOLVED: Xmobar-darcs + Conky-Cli not working correctly

Also, I do not know if it matters but I used conky-cli so I could output conky to my Xmobar. Can regular conky do this as well?
