* HOW TO CHANGE BACKGROUND IMAGES AND COLORS.

1.- Open a terminal and type:

sudo gedit .Conky/tec-mon_reloaded/config/conkyrc

In these file, find:

${image ~/.Conky/tech-mon_reloaded/images/03.png -p 0,0 -s 248x750}

Just change "03.png" (no quotes) for other. For example 01.png, 02.png, 04.png ... etc.

and change all codelines named "{color red}" (no quotes) for other. For example {color yellow} or {color white} or {color green} ... etc. You're invited to try new colors.

Save and exit.

In same terminal, type:

sudo gedit .Conky/tech-mon_reloaded/scripts/rings.lua

In these file, find the lines named:

bg_colour1={{0.5,0xFF0000,0.2}},
fg_colour1={{0.5,0xFF0000,0.6}},
fg_colour2={{0.5,0xFF0000,0.6}},

and change "0xFF0000" for your favorite color in hexadecimal. You're invited to try new colors.

That's all.

Greatings!

Sorry if I say something stupid because of me being relatively new at linux but I can't get it to work. even though i did everything in description.
It doesn't come up at the startup and if i run it through terminal i get this:

Conky: can't open /sys/class/power_supply/BAT1/uevent: No such file or directory
Conky: can't open /proc/acpi/battery/BAT1/state: No such file or directory
Conky: can't open /dev/mixer: No such file or directory
Conky: mixer ioctl: Bad file descriptor
Conky: can't open /dev/mixer: No such file or directory
sh: 1: audtool: not found

Do you have any idea on how to fix this?
Also i run LM15 on Asus g75vx.

Hello geogeo666:

* Battery

Please check your paths. Open a terminal and type:

cd /
cd /proc/acpi/power_supply/
ls

If you see BAT0, BAT2 or other, then open a new terminal and type:

sudo gedit .Conky/tech-mon_reloaded/scripts/rings.lua

In the line 93, change BAT1 for BAT0 or wherever.

* Audtool

Are you installed Audacious? If no, then open a new terminal and type:

sudo apt-get install audacious

If yes, then open a terminal and type:

sudo gedit .Conky/tech-mon_reloaded/config/conkyrc

And code line 82, "if_running audacious" change for "if_audacious2" and change all code line named audtool for audtool2 or something like that

I can't determine if you're using ALSA or PulseAudio because i'm using Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat yet. Please search on Internet and adjust your paths in conkyrc and rings.lua

Good luck
