Hello,

Just installed the scripts (archlinux), but it won't run....i tested to start the scripts alone and this works.

this is what conky says:

bash-3.2$ conky
Conky: use_spacer should have an argument of left, right, or none. 'no' seems to be some form of 'false', so defaulting to none.
Conky: desktop window (1000024) is subwindow of root window (1a7)
Conky: window type - normal
Conky: drawing to created window (0x2c00001)
Conky: drawing to double buffer

#mpd
mpd_host localhost
mpd_port 6600

Are you using MPD? If not then just comment out these lines in the script. If you are, then search to find out how to 'set up conky mpd'.

If you can't work it out, then delete those three lines and do it again.

Have a go with audacious maybe:

${if_running audacious2}${goto 25}${font dejavu:bold:size=10}${goto 25}${scroll 12 ${exec audtool2 --current-song}}${alignr} ${color white}${exec audtool current-song-output-length}/${exec audtool current-song-length}${color }${goto 25}
${goto 23}${execbar expr 100 \* $(audtool --current-song-output-length-seconds) \/ $(audtool --current-song-length-seconds)}${else}
${goto 23}${color1}${hr}${color }
${goto 26}${font dejavu:bold:size=7}${execi 60 fortune -s | fold -w45}
${color1}${hr}${endif}

If you close Audacious, then you'll get a fortune cookie instead.

Someone asked me one of my conky config. Since I was using a gmail.py I downloaded from you, I put it in the archive. Don't you mind ?
You can find it right here :

what do I do? I've tried to search for answers but I can't find out the solution.

You may have already figured this out, but maybe I can answer this for people that run into this at a later date. Open the ".conkyrc" file and scroll to the very bottom. Where you see:

"Email: ${color e0e0e0}${pop3_unseen **server name** **user name** **password**} new messages"

either delete this line or enter the correct details of your POP server.

Hope this helps :D

You don't need to worry about that. It will run. Just follow the instructions and you should be right to go.

hit control + h on your keyboard while in the folder. it's named .conkyrc, which means it's hidden by default

I don't mind helping. Did you add your username and password in gmail.py?
About mpd, try this guide http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=320469&highlight=mpd&page=4.
My distro is Arch so I don't know whether it helps. Type conky in the ubuntu forum and you will see a lot of informations that should help you.
