OpenSUSE :: Setup A Conky Setting At Work?

Jul 18, 2011

i would like to set up a conky setting at my work so when employees call me for questions they can just give me the info that is visually on the screen from conky that i want instead of having them look for it, i have done some conky in ubuntu , it is very easy , just install it then enter codes in the text editor, and BAM done, now on opensuse looking at this thread Conky - Hardware Monitor it looks ALOT harder, is there a easier way around this big mess of codes and what not.

Ubuntu :: Setting Up Conky With Multiple Wallpapers?

May 19, 2010

I have recently installed Lucid Lynx and am enjoying it immensely.I was just wondering if anyone can help me with setting up Conky to work with the Compiz wallpaper plugin.I've disabled Nautilus from drawing my desktop to enable multiple wallpapers in Compiz, but now I can't get Conky to show up on the desktop. Can anyone who's done this in Lynx post their .conkyrc files please?I've tried googling around for a solution, but most of the threads I came across were from 2007-2009, and some of the configuration options for Compiz have been updated since then. It'd be cool if I can still use conky in my multi-paper environment.

I used testdisk to undelete some files and in the process accidentally moved my partitions around (swap file was sda5 now it's sda3). Now I am getting the "no swap%" error from Conky. This is in Conky, I've already checked the UUID's with my partitions and fstab file.

Ubuntu :: Conky At Startup - Has Wrong Window Setting

May 17, 2011

I have conky running a simple script on my Ubuntu 11.04 install. Running conky from using ALT-F2 is fine, but I have have conky added to the startup list, and when it runs from this, the conky window is different (ie not integrated with desktop layer). It has some shadowing around the edge and it seems to be on a layer other than the desktop. In addition to this, it stops running after a short while. I then run conky from ALT-F2 again and it's appears as I want, and stays there all day. I have included what I think is the relevant code below from my conkyrc. Has anyone had similar issues with a suitable way to resolve the problem?

own_window yes
own_window_transparent yes
own_window_type override
#own_window_type desktop
#own_window_type normal
own_window_type conky
own_window_class Conky

Ubuntu :: Dual Head Setup - Multiple Conky

Jun 14, 2010

I am trying out conky for the first time and rather enjoying it. I have a small frustration though. I have a dual head setup and would like to have identical conky's showing on both monitors. I have tried creating two .conkyrc's (.conkyrc1 & .conkyrc2) and then using:-

$ conky -c config1
$ conky -c config2
to launch them, this results in only one of the two conky's displaying. I did at first think that maybe they were on top of eachother, but one conkyrc is set bottom_left, the other bottom_right so they should not be right??

When I try to run them as above terminal shows:-
gregg@burt:~$ conky -c config1
Conky: invalid configuration file 'config1'
Conky: invalid num arg for top. Must be between 1 and 10.
Conky: invalid num arg for top. Must be between 1 and 10.
Conky: invalid num arg for top. Must be between 1 and 10.
Conky: invalid num arg for top. Must be between 1 and 10.
Conky: invalid num arg for top. Must be between 1 and 10.
Conky: invalid num arg for top. Must be between 1 and 10.
Conky: forked to background, pid is 7017 .....

Processes 8 & 9 do not appear in my conky, just blank space between 7 & 10?? Also, the swap %age displays 'No swap%'?

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Won't Hold The Setting After Have Clicked "apply" And Left The Audio Setup?

Aug 16, 2011

Everything else seems to work, but there is a problem with sound. I have a Xonar DS card that is recognised by the system and which works when I test it under the sound section of Yast.I have the Packman repository and Libdvdcss repository listed in Yast.However, no sound from any application/cd/dvd/internet or on boot.I've noticed that, in KMix,f I go into the mixer there is settings option -> audio setup. Under this there is a speaker option which offers the choice of the source of sound to the speakers - from my sound card or from the internal Intel sound - which does not work, hence my sound card. WhenI choose my sound card the test L & R speaker sounds work fine - but it won't hold the setting after I have clicked "apply" and left the audio setup. It then reverts to the internal sound chip and, lo and behold, no sound is now produced

Ubuntu :: Conky: Getting Execigraph To Work With Aticonfig

Nov 15, 2010

Trying to get execigraph to work with aticonfig in conky. The following line works after a fashion, displaying the number & % symbol: Code: ${execi 10 aticonfig --adapter=0 --odgc | grep "GPU load" | cut -c32-34} but the following displays either a static vertical line on the right edge of my conky or nothing at all:

Code: ${execigraph 10 aticonfig --adapter=0 ---odgc | grep "GPU load" | cut -c32-33} I've tried tinkering with default_graph_size, with ""s around the aticonfig etc part, with the -c values in cut, have googled to the point of despair & tried various lines using tail or gawk (I don't have a clue about these, even after trying to read up, so tinkering with the values has been fruitless guesswork) that I found in forums. Nothing works. I think the main problem is that sometimes the result of aticonfig etc is a number between 0 & 99 which execigraph requires but if the gpu load is <10 then the result is a number and the % symbol. But this might be completely wrong because even when the load is >10, there's no graph.

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:

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?

Slackware :: Breezed Through Setup And Missed Setting UTF-8 In 13.1?

Aug 3, 2010

I just updated to Slackware 13.1 last night (clean installation). However, when it came to setting up LILO, I chose "no" to the UTF setup when I usually choose "yes." I think choosing no put the line below in LILO.conf:


append = "vt.default_utf8=0"

What's the LILO setting if one chooses "yes" instead of "no"?

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.
