Conky HTC style clock + detailed weather (v2.0)

Description:
My thanks to TeoBigusGeekus first of all.
Also thanks to Sector11, mucas and wgacton.
Last but not least, my thanks to Andrei (Andrew) from webupd8.

What I did here is take the simple HTC smart phone style clock and weather conky and expend it into a much complete and detailed weather conky, with 7 day weather forecast and details for current weather, sunrise, sunset, moonphases, etc.
My screen is full HD 1080p (1920 x 1080), it will work as is on different resolution screens, but not the very small ones. For that you would need to do some serious editing of the conkyrc files to shrink down everything to fit a small size screen.

In fact you are looking at two separate conky here.
The first one on the left is based on accuweather script, the revised script, corrected by TeoBigusGeekus after the new website layout for accuweather.
The second one is a dual city (location) based on weather.com (weather channel) script.
For that you would need to install conkyforecast, download from here:
http://ashu-geek.blogspot.com/2012/03/conkyforecast-224-current-weather.html
For both conky you would also need to manually edit the displayed name of your city in the section named # LOCATION (CITY NAMES) #
You might need to right click and go into properties in order to make the scripts executable by checking the “allow executing file as program” in the permission tab.
*******************************************************************************

Instructions:
First of all, install "conky" from your Linux Distro Software Manager (apt repository)
or a third party download, or compile from tar.gz and install

Download and save the "Conky-HTC-Weather-Forecast-v2.0.tar.gz" tarballz file to Downloads, or any other location you want.
After you untar the archive, open the resulting
"Conky-HTC-Weather-Forecast-v2.0" folder
*******************************************************************************
*****THIS STEP IS ONLY FOR PEOPLE USING LINUX MINT, DEBIAN,
UBUNTU and all other UBUNTU based distros!! (.deb installer compatible)****

Install "conkyforecast_2.24_all.deb" with your "Debi Package Installer"
by simply clicking on it.
Proceed to STEP 1 bellow.
*******************************************************************************
If you are using any other Linux distro, such as FEDORA, OPENSUSE, GENTOO,
KNOPIX, MANDRIVA, SLACKWARE, CRUNCHBANG, etc you would need to find
the conkyforecast installer designed for your distro,
or just compile and install conkyforecast from source files (tar.gz)
*******************************************************************************

STEP 1
While in the directory (folder) "Conky-HTC-Weather-Forecast-v2.0",
push "Ctrl+H", to be able to also see all hidden files/folders contained in it.
**Hidden files/folders have a "." in front of the name,
that's what makes them hidden.
*******************************************************************************
YOU NEED TO COPY ALL HIDDEN FILES/FOLDERS AS WELL AS NORMAL FILES/FOLDERS
CONTAINED WITHIN.

*******************************************************************************
Open the hidden folder named ".OPEN-AND-COPY-ALL-TO-YOUR-HOME-DIRECTORY"
and copy all of its contents into your home directory
**( that would be /home/)
*******************************************************************************

STEP 2
For the accuweather based conky, you would need to get your city code from
www.accuweather.com and replace in the Accuweather-Script-AG-EN file,
(line 215), replace:
address="http://www.accuweather.com/en/ro/curtea-de-arges/271850/weather-forecast/271850"
with your city code from www.accuweather.com

For the www.weather.com based conky, you need to replace both my city codes
in the conkyrc file (01-Conky-HTC-Dual-EN.conkyrc) with your location city codes.
# My 2 locations are Constanta, Romania and Knoxville, Tennessee, USA,
# coresponding to --location=ROXX0034 and --location=USTN0268
# Replace with your city code from
www.weather.com
*******************************************************************************
DONE, ENJOY.
Leave feedback or ask questions if you have any,
I'll do my best to help you, if I can.

I like the way it looks, but I am having a hard time with the startup:

al@al-X55CR:~$ conky -c $HOME/.Conky/02-Conky-HTC-AccuW-AG-EN/02-Conky-HTC-AccuW-AG-EN.conkyrc &
[1] 4280
al@al-X55CR:~$ conky: Syntax error (...home/al/.Conky/02-Conky-HTC-AccuW-AG-EN/02-Conky-HTC-AccuW-AG-EN.conkyrc:2: unexpected symbol near '#') while reading config file.
conky: Assuming it's in old syntax and attempting conversion.
conky: [string "..."]:151: [string "converted config"]:95: '}' expected (to close '{' at line 1) near '='

I assume you are talking about the Background (Wallpaper) ??? Honestly, I don't remember, I downloaded lots and lots of Wallpapers from various websites that offer them to people...
