Description:

Now it's easy to customize your desktop!

Conky is a free, light-weight system monitor for X, that displays any information on your desktop.

CONKY-colors is an easier way to configure Conky.

This conky script support multilanguage:
Bulgarian, English, German, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Ukrainian

How to install
Go to a terminal and type:
$sudo apt-get install aptitude python-statgrab python-keyring ttf-ubuntu-font-family hddtemp curl lm-sensors conky-all
$sudo chmod u+s /usr/sbin/hddtemp || https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=75639
$sudo sensors-detect #answering Yes (default) to all questions, even that last one that defaults to No

Now restart your session

Download and extract the conky-colors.zip and type in terminal in the same directory that has been extracted.
$make
$sudo make install
$conky-colors {options}

$conky-colors --help [for help]

Ex: if your cpu is quad-core and you want the noble color, with hd, network and pidgin monitor and all in portuguese
conky-colors --theme=gnome-noble --lang=pt --cpu=4 --network --hd=default --pidgin

For a working photo widget you need to specify a file or directory in conkyPhoto or conkyPhotoRandom script in ~/.conkycolors/bin/

Update your font cache:
$sudo fc-cache -v -f

in terminal type conky -c ~/.conkycolors/conkyrc.

To run conky at startup, go to System > Preferences > Startup Applications, click "Add" and add the path to the conkyStart file[/usr/share/conkycolors/bin/conkyStart]

that's all folks!

OPTIONS FROM THE SCREENSHOT:
conky-colors --cpu=2 --calendar --photord --clementine=cd --hd=default --network --theme=wise
conky-colors --sls --weather=brxx0043 --theme=orange
conky-colors --cairo --cpu=2 --clock=cairo --network --theme=blue
conky-colors --ring --network --theme=red
conky-colors --slim --w=1440 --h=900 --theme=white --weather=brxx0043
conky-colors --board --w=1440 --h=900 --theme=cyan

KWON PROBLEMS:
Lua/bash scripts work with conky 1.8.1, but most of the python scripts still doesnt;
SLS MODE only work with lm-sensors configured
The position of the photo and cover may be wrong bc in ubuntu the space between the widgets is different from Archlinux (I'm an arch user now)

Hi I noticed ConkyForecast/weather is not updating. I leave the computer running overnight, the weather does not update. Is there some setting I'm messing up? I'm using your latest conky package.

My .conkyForecast.config is the default one with my own weather.com codes.

OK lol.. it updated but it took a long long long time. Is there any way to adjust the refresh rate? The temperature shown is always lagging behind the one shown on weather.com.

Nevermind, I went and edited the .conkyrc file. I guess you have the weather set at 3 hours or 10800 seconds which is a bit too slow I find.

It works great but when i use calendar and digital clock together they seem to get smushed into one thing anyway to counter this?

Change the Voffset until it isn't smushed anymore in your .conkyrc file then save. It will reload and you'll get your updated positioning

Hi there,


I love conky-colors. Thank you for all your work.

Just wanted to let you know that I get a segfault in Ubuntu 10.10 if I include the --clock parameter.

As i told you before. i am not able to package this for opensuse since you are installing all into /home. This should not be the default behavior. i can change this of course, but it would be really nice if you could change your code that way it doesn’t install into /home.

for binaries valid is /usr/bin/
/usr/local/bin

for datafiles i recommend to change this to /usr/share/conky

for some reason, i cannot change the theme of the conky anymore. the theme is always set into gnome-human, no matter what i change it in the theme parameter. Do you know how to solve the problem

in the calendar the "31" is overlapped with the Nvidia heading. probably cause the layout of october requires 6 rows as opposed to the normal 5. can you increase the spacing?

Is it possible to change this in the source files. I've been able to make the change to .conkyrc by changing

${time %H:%M} to ${time %I:%M %P} but when I make any changes and make install it overwrites that files.

Where do I make this change in the source?

Thank you so much for the last two updates! Now my personal modification of conky colors fits my taste almost perfectly.

Almost, that is, because there still is one tiny flaw in it. Thing is:

In conkyCairo.lua, editing the 'height' variable for the round_rectangle does what it is supposed to (thus, changing the height of the rectangle shapes). Editing width, however, does not seem to have any effect at all. This kind of sucks, 'cause I need at least one wider rectangle background for my top 5 processes. Otherwise, the names overlap the values (like shown in this screenshot: http://www.abload.de/img/conky5dks.jpg).

Report

UPDATE: Just found out that the width variable actually does work and the reason why I haven't noticed any effect is that the shapes widen to the right (and therefore are being cut of by the right border of conky itself).

So my NEW QUESTION is: How can I alter the shape_pos of the rectangles vertically?

UPDATE: Horizontally, I meant.

And I just found a nice workaround, so never mind. ;)

Just to let you know, when measuring computer memory you ALWAYS use Kilobytes, Megabytes etc. Never Kibibytes or Mebibytes.
