Slackware :: Fixed Conky / KDE4 Transparency - Doesn't Disappear When Click Desktop

Jun 19, 2010

This works on my Slackware64 13.1 using KDE 4.4.4, Conky version 1.8.0. This is a simple .conkyrc tweak that doesn't need feh, it doesn't have the distracting faun shadow-border and most importantly, it doesn't disappear when you click your desktop (On my system anyway). These are the relevant sections to edit:

own_window_colour black
own_window_hints undecorated,below,sticky,skip_taskbar,skip_pager
own_window_transparent yes
own_window_type override
own_window yes

I found that getting rid of the own_window_argb_values yes suggested in other fixes and replacing it with a specific alpha and then changing window type to override solved all my issues. I've noticed no bugs or strange happenings. This seems to be a common problem with a lot of workaround solutions. I think this is a much more elegant way. Edit: Not persistant... After 2 reboots it's back to normal.

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?

OpenSUSE :: Installing Conky With Lua And Cairo?

Jun 1, 2010

I have some problems installing conky. I need cairo working with conky and itt's not, if I install conky via rpm. So I tried to compile conky from source with:

./configure --enable-lua-cairo

ant that fails, because it requires tolua++. So I tried to compile tolua++ (uses scons), but that doesn't work:

scons: Reading SConscript files ...
scons: warning: The Options class is deprecated; use the Variables class instead.
File "/home/jaa/Documents/obrzky/Plasmoidy/conky stuf/tolua++-1.0.93/SConstruct", line 19, in <module>

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

May 24, 2011

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?

Software :: Conky Won't Show Everything?

Mar 30, 2010

I have had a perfectly working conky setup for a few months now, and felt like updating it. The new setup is slightly longer that the old one. The onlyblem is that it stops displaying any more text after a certain line on my screen. There are 3 more lines below "IO Usage" that should be displaying, but they aren't. They aren't hidden off the screen, they just aren't being displyaed.I also discovered that the top line always seems to be fixed at a certain point on the screen. It won't move up or down. Even if there are less lines of stuff to be displayed, the top line stays there, and there is a gap between conky and the bottom of the screen.The first problem is the bigger one, but I have a feeling that they are both somehow related.

Ubuntu :: Conky Crashes With Desktop?

Jan 8, 2010

I have conky on my desktop, and it works most of the time. The only times I've noticed problems are when I do large file transfers from my computer to an external HD.

What happens during large file transfers is that Conky crashes, and then I realize that my desktop is also "dead" (as in, I can't highlight anything. The icon for my external HD is gone, even though it is still mounted and accessible. Right-clicking doesn't do anything either.). I tried Ctrl+Alt+Backspace, but that didn't work either. I can log out and back in to get everything working again, but that's a bit of a pain.

I'm using the GNOME desktop on Ubuntu 9.10.

Ubuntu :: Conky And Unprintable Characters?

Feb 4, 2010

I've downloaded a .htm file from the WWW which has the following few lines:

Latest Times as at: 4-Feb-2010 15:30 ${color3}${execi 1800 grep "Latest" FinishTimes.htm | sed -e 's/ in Tideda Files//'}
and in my Conky script I do this:
${color3}${execi 1800 grep "Latest" FinishTimes.htm}

but when it prints on the screen there is an empty box at the end of the line. I assume this a CR or LF that's attached to the end of the line, but how can I get rid of it?
