Thnx! You're the best! I almost gave up, since I had tried almost every single configuration I could think of hahaha. Sorry I completely misunderstood the instructions. ;-)

The temperature remains the same for me (0 degrees Celsius). Any thoughts?

"LQBK" my city, go to:

Fantastic! But in Fedora we have:

$ cat /etc/issue.net
Fedora release 14 (Laughlin)
Kernel \r on an \m (\l)

so you should use something like this:

$ cat /etc/issue.net | head -n 1
Fedora release 14 (Laughlin)

Also the temperature is not shown, using locid SBSJ. It shows:

${weather} °C

and I don't know how to workaround that.

Cheers,
Germán.

You may also need to reduce the font for the date in .conkyrc
now I'm at work and the Windows OS so I can not help

damn...

Could I be a simpleton and ask you to provide the code to start this?

and how about a short instruction for those of us "new" to conky.

Such as,
Place conky.lua in "this folder",
place .png "here", etc?

I use conky, and have the conky orange (found on gnome-look) running,
but im unsure as to how exactly to get this one going.

any help would be appreciated. <3 thanks

Open synaptic and install "Conky", "Conky Al" and "Conky CLI"

in your home folder, create a new folder: ". Conky" (a point ahead of Conky) and inserted into. "png" image.
again in your home folder create a new folder. "lua" (a point ahead lua) and in it the folder "scripts" and inserted into the "clock_rings.lua"

open terminal and type: "gedit. conkyrc"
Enter
and write down your password
when opened. conkyrc delete everything from it and put the contents of the new conkyrc.
change the line: "${font caviar dreams:size=12}${color FFFFFF}${alignr}${weather http://weather.noaa.gov/pub/data/observations/metar/stations/ LQBK"

LQBK my city, find the code for your city: http://weather.noaa.gov

save.

open terminal and type: Conky
Enter

After reading your comments, I suppose that you're using Ubuntu or Linux Mint. Here is the simpler way to use conky:

- Open the terminal, type this command: " sudo apt-get install conky-all"

- Download the conky setups, name it whatever and save it wherever you want.

- After that, to run the conky file, open the terminal ( or Alt + F2) and type " conky -c /path/to/the/file/nameofthefile". Then the conky window(s) will appear.

- You also need to install extra fonts that are used in the conky files. You need to open the file to see what fonts you need to install.
