I love Conky-Lua! Works great on my Linux Mint Debian laptop. One question though: There's no green graph showing network activity like it is for CPU, RAM, Swap and Disk. There's only numbers and the two gray semi-circles. Is it supposed to be a green graph for net as well?

how do you set up this scrip to show temperature in Fahrenheit instead of Celsius?

Report

open up .conkeyrc with the text editor
search for "temperature_unit celsius"
should be code line 48
replace "celsius" with "fahrenheit"

"temperature_unit fahrenheit"

verify temperature number value changes

if the °C doesn't change to °F

find the code line 61

${font caviar dreams:size=12}${color FFFFFF}${alignr}${weather http://weather.noaa.gov/pub/data/observations/metar/stations/ XXXX temperature temperature 30} °C${font}

change the last part "°C${font}"
with "°F${font}"

Always get the following error:

Conky: llua_do_call: function conky_clock_rings execution failed: /home/cjnd/.lua/scripts/clock_rings.lua:286: attempt to perform arithmetic on local 'value' (a nil value)

to create a home .lua folder
to create a .lua scripts folder
and
clock_rings.lua copy to: scripts folder

Those folders already exist and the scrip is in place, in fact the error message says that the problem is in line 286.

I have the same problem. I have all the folders in the correct places and i have double checked the names, but still no clock arms, only clock rings.

This is the error output i get from my terminal:

Conky: llua_do_call: function conky_clock_rings execution failed: /home/joey/.lua/scripts/clock_rings.lua:286: attempt to perform arithmetic on local 'value' (a nil value)

Report

open clock_rings.lua and add this line on top of line 286:
if value == nil then value = 0 end

Yes, that's exactly what I did. I entered this code: 50-55N 005-47E 116M

which I found here: http://weather.noaa.gov/weather/current/EHBK.html

being the weather station closest to where I live...

are replaced with "LQBK" "EHBK"
now needs to show 6 degrees Celsius...

If you do so then you do not even know how to help.

Sorry for bad English

OK, I have this now:

${font caviar dreams:size=12}${color FFFFFF}${alignr}${weather http://weather.noaa.gov/pub/data/observations/metar/stations/EHBK 50-55N 005-47E 116M temperature temperature 30} °C${font}

still no temp...

Report

now I understand!

this is correct:


${font caviar dreams:size=12}${color FFFFFF}${alignr}${weather http://weather.noaa.gov/pub/data/observations/metar/stations/ EHBK temperature temperature 30} °C${font}

watch the blank space before EHBK
and erase "50-55N 005-47E 116M"
