Debian :: Conky - Full Screen Config / 2 Conky Configs?

Jun 13, 2011

Said that all the config i find put all the info in one place of the screen, in this example on the right side:


or like conky colors where you can put in either side, or other complex examples that use folders with images..that at least i need one day to study all the variables it has...

What i want is something simple, in my black background i dont want images and effects, only white simple text.

My problem is: i want for instance my specs above, my log info in the middle, my music info bellow (above my clock) and in conky config i'm hitting my head in the wall....

For instance if i use my facebook script to appear in the midle how the hell can i put my music info bellow without ruined the facebook in the i need 2 conky configs?

Ubuntu :: Conky Slow To Run - Appear On The Screen?

Oct 24, 2010

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?

Mar 10, 2010

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 use 2 monitors and Conky defaults to the top right of my right-hand monitor.I'd like to move it to the top right of the left-hand monitor.

Debian :: Conky Making DNS Request Infinite Loops

Sep 14, 2015

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 it'll start the infinite DNS request to this host. If I close the navigator it stops. If I try to connect to it starts the DNS requests. If I disconnect it stops. Why is it happening?

That's my script:

Code: Select allbackground no
update_interval 1
total_run_times 0
own_window yes
own_window_type desktop
own_window_transparent yes

Debian Multimedia :: Conky Execp / Execpi To Parse Output Of Scroll Variable Generated From Shell Or PHP Scripts

I am having a hard time getting conky execp/execpi to correctly parse output of the scroll variable generated from shell or PHP scripts.

Code: Select allDebian 8.0
Xfce 4.10
Conky 1.9.0-6

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

[Code] ....

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*/

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Obnoxious Bar In Smplayer - Full Screen Isn't Full Screen And There Are Black Edges On Both Sides Of The Screen

Jan 25, 2011

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.

Ubuntu :: Can't Compile Conky 1.8.1?

Oct 22, 2010

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:

./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.

mv -f .deps/conky-ccurl_thread.Tpo .deps/conky-ccurl_thread.Po
gcc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -DSYSTEM_CONFIG_FILE="/usr/etc/conky/conky.conf" -DPACKAGE_LIBDIR="/usr/lib/conky" -pthread -[code]....

Ubuntu :: Cannot Get Started With Conky

Nov 24, 2010

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

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.

Ubuntu :: Conky Disappears After A While On 11.04
