I'm using Conky in my Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic. I have an error message like this:
Conky: border_margin is deprecated, please use window.border_inner_margin instead Conky: one or more $endif's are missing Conky: desktop window (1a00065) is subwindow of root window (10d) Conky: window type - override code....
I have a problem with conky. It draws a black background instead of using pseudo-transparency. I ofc tried to achieve this with feh but to no avail. All the instructions here failed: Conky Hardcore! Conky transparency with KDE (3 and 4)
I've been running Ubuntu 10.10 since its became available and have recently dialed in my conky config. All has been working just fine. I usually leave my system running 24x7 and will reboot it or shut it down from time to time.
I have conky running via a command line (manual) and as soon as I enter 'conky' it will run immediately. However, this morning I rebooted my system, ran conky in a terminal window as I usually do...nothing the usual script shows up in the terminal window, but conky didn't appear on the screen. I've not changed backgrounds, changed my .conkyrc file, nothing. I removed conky and reinstalled it and pulled a new .conkyrc from a backup. I could read the original just fine, but thought perhaps the . file had something wrong. Still the same results...conky didn't appear on the desktop. Here is what is really weird.
After about 3 or 5 minutes, conky appeared on screen and is running fine except its no longer pulling my external IP number via:
Why its taking conky so long to appear on the screen?
After seeing this conky profile I decided to try my hand at making something similar, as my conky profile looked pretty unappetising.All my conkyrc file does at the moment, is display an image and I seem to be falling at the first hurdle. I would like the image to be flush to the bottom of the screen however it floats about 100px above the bottom of the screen.Screenshot attached and conkyrc file below. Does anyone know how to fix this?
I just installed Kubuntu 10.10 x64. I copied de .conkyrc from my Ubuntu install, where it worked fine, to my Kubuntu install. But now, it's quite awfull. I've put a screen at the bottom of the post.[URL]
Every time I load my conky file, the screen just freezes. I have tried different conky script but still not working. I also provide some screen shot to have better idea whats going on. [URL]. This is the script I am using right now:
Code: # set to yes if you want Conky to be forked in the background background no cpu_avg_samples 2 net_avg_samples 2 out_to_console no .....
# Default colors and also border colors default_color white default_shade_color white default_outline_color white # Text alignment, other possible values are commented #alignment top_left #minimum_size 10 10 gap_x 15 gap_y 70 alignment top_right #alignment bottom_left #alignment bottom_right # Gap between borders of screen and text # Add spaces to keep things from moving about?

For some reason my Conky is making my machine do infinite DNS requests to the last host I'm connected with. For example, if I visit forums.debian.net it'll start the infinite DNS request to this host. If I close the navigator it stops. If I try to connect to irc.freenode.net it starts the DNS requests. If I disconnect it stops. Why is it happening?
I am NOT willing (nor is my IBM T41 for that matter) to make from source the new conky 1.7.2, so can someone give me a deb file for squeeze that I can install to my system to replace my current 1.7.1 conky? I really want to use lua scripts. (Specifically: [URL])
how to remove the black area behind conky without using compositing?
I want to put some info on my all black background, for instance i do a lot of vpn connections, so it would be cool that i do startx and a xterm console was on the background (without the window ofcourse) with the tail -f /var/log/messages or my dropbox status and so on Like tilling....but on background...i hate wallpapers
now a problem to do the command line above and put it for instance in autostart.sh from openbox i need to do it as sudo and give the password......damn..it will not work
I have some problem with dzen2 & conky to show icons and/or colors.In my i3-wm config file i have:exec conky -b -c ~/.conkyrc | i3-wsbar --command "dzen2 -dock -x %x -l"and my conky is correctly displayed on i3-wsbar.But if in my conky I put something like:
^fg(#B64403) mem: $memperc% or ^fg(red) mem: $memperc%
This is a simplified minimal conky configuration file used to show the same problem:
Code: Select allalignment bottom_middle background no border_width 1 default_color white default_outline_color white default_shade_color white double_buffer yes
Here is the output I'm getting:
Code: Select all ABC /*doesn't scroll, UNEXPECTED, shows 10 spaces before ABC*/ ABC --||-- abcdefghijklmnopABC /*doesn't scroll, WORKS AS EXPECTED as scroll length is 25 which is longer than text "abcdefghijklmnop" */ abcdefghijklmnopABC --||-- abcdefghijklmnopABC /*WORKS, everything before ABC scrolls 5 characters at a time*/
This obnoxious bar has just appeared in Smplayer at the top of the screen. It stays there even when I go full screen. Now full screen isn't full screen and there are black edges on both sides of the screen. I have not be able to figure out how to hide it. I do not need or want this onscreen display. How can I configure Smplayer to make this go away? How can I get my 16:9 full screen aspect ratio back? I have done nothing to mplayer or smplayer as far as editing any or changing any configuration files. I tried several videos and it displays on all of them. It was not there last time I used Smplayer.
I'v installed conky (from the repo) on my Fedora 12 x64 box, and i'm very pleased with it. However I can't get it to start at login.I'v tried shell scripts that include a delay (i tried delays of up to 30 secconds), and there is no change.
I just did a fresh install of Ubuntu 10.10 and i thought I'll just compile the latest version of conky. So i did:
Code: ./configure --prefix=/usr --enable-audacious=yes --enable-iostats --enable-curl --enable-rss --enable-weather-metar --enable-weather-xoap --enable-imlib2 --enable-lua-imlib2 --enable-lua --enable-lua-cairo --enable-wlan All good. I finally install everything and manage to get configure to finish but once I type make it exists in the middle.
I recently installed Ubuntu and I came across Conky.I was fascinated with this software and installed it using terminal codes. At first it rand with the default config file loaded. then i PC shutdown due to a power failure. now conky does not start and after searching over the net i found out that my conky config file is missing. I pasted the conky config fiel yet to no avail.
It gives me this error while running it in Terminal
Code: Conky: /home/shazzy/.conkyrc: 30: no such configuration: 'on_bottom' Conky: /home/shazzy/.conkyrc: 63: no such configuration: 'border_margin' Conky: use_spacer should have an argument of left, right, or none. 'no' seems to be some form of 'false', so defaulting to none.
Here's the link to the site. I'm not sure how do i set this up as my conky config.
I've been trying to set up Conky and everytime I try to put in new code that I've copied and pasted I always get it to look super crappy for some reason..Also why is it going to the bottom left instead of top right?
I would like some help with Conky. I have no Idea how to configure it and all the guides are soo confusing to me. I would like it to be clear, have some basic PC info about my computer and show me the weather.
When I run Conky on Ubuntu 11.04, then after some time it suddenly disappears (isn't drawn anymore on the desktop). With 'ps' I can see that the Conky process is still running, it just isn't drawing itself anymore. I don't know what exactly triggers Conky to disappear. Does this have something to do with Unity?
