I see from your profile that you are using Arch Linux so try this site http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Configuring_locales . Hope this helps.

thanks lyrae, that worked
also found the solution to the forecast, just added this to the concyrc

${color 776241}Tomorrow:
${color 776241}${alignr 30}${font Weather:size=32}${execi 21600 python /path/to/conkyForecast.py --location=noxx0033 --datatype=WF --startday=1}${font}
${color 949494}${voffset -24} ${execi 21600 python /path/to/conkyForecast.py --location=noxx0033 --datatype=HT --startday=1}

${color 776241}In 2 Days:
${color 776241}${alignr 30}${font Weather:size=32}${execi 21600 python /path/to/conkyForecast.py --location=noxx0033 --datatype=WF --startday=2}${font}
${color 949494}${voffset -24} ${execi 21600 python /path/to/conkyForecast.py --location=noxx0033 --datatype=HT --startday=2}

firstly i really love this conky design

but i have problems with the fonts, i installed the artwiz package but conky wont use the cure fonts, instead it reverts to some other fonts (monospace i think) also i cant choose cure in any text editor either, its like the system doesent recognize these fonts. any idea? im on ubuntu hardy 64

i also have a problem with the weather, i would really like 2-3 days forecast but i cant get it to work and i have read the thread on the ubuntu forums

Sorry I don't have any idea, but try this http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=809312&highlight=artwiz.

As for the 2-3 days forecast, I haven't try this. You will have to ask in the forum.

Note my use of aussie vernacular in the subject title. :)
Seriously, kudos lyrae, you give me a funny feeling in my tummy. Only thing is, the slider is a pain to see on firefox with dusk...but easily remedied i guess, I'll just tinker with some colour property in the rc right? actually, thats off topic anyway...
Thanks again !

Nice :) Firefox is always too dark for me than others, that is why I use the theme Whitehart for when I am using a dark gtk theme or you could just remedied as you says. Cheers!

Hi Lyrae,
More quality stuff from the desk of Lyrae :-)
I'm a bit confused (as usual;) about the weather portion of this config., do I really need to put my location code in both scripts? If so, where exactly do I put it in the conkyForcast.py script? I see the line that begins "self.parser.add_option..." has, in part, a section that looks like this "default="$LOCATION". Do I replace the $LOCATION bit with my location code ie: default="CAXX0054" or does it go somewhere else?
My second question concerns metric vs imperial; do I need to specify one or the other and if so where?
It's obvious from my questions that I have yet to try this out but "curious minds" and all that...

Thanks in advance!
Myles

Thank you.

Yes, replace $LOCATION with "CAXX0054" and also put some on .conkyrc_weather.

Ok, I forgot about the metric/imperial thing. If you want to use imperial, open .conkyrc_weather and go to line 82, (if you haven't edit it yet) or two lines under TEXT, add -i to just after ~/scripts/conkyForecast.py before --location. No need to do that with metric.

Awesome! :-) Thanks for the quick reply, I'll be using this config as soon as I'm finished here. Again, thanks for your contributions, they're very much appreciated.

Cheers!
