Just Conky Clock

I just wanted an analog clock that would work better than Screenlets or gDesklets. I edited the script for Conky Cemeng, and added other clock faces for 8 different clock styles. It does NOT include any system monitoring applets... just a clock.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The README-Install file gives additional info:


JustClock Installation

Create Conky folder, download justclock tar file to this folder, extract justclock tar file in this folder.
Browser: View: Show Hidden Folders
Copy both the .conclock and .conclockrc files in (user's home) folder
Make edits in *** below if needed

To test, in terminal: conky -c ~/.conclockrc

*** If you are running Gnome 3, some versions may require the following changes in .conclockrc:

If running Gnome 3 comment out the following line by placing a # in front of the line:
own_window_type override

If running Gnome 3 UNcomment out the following line by removing the # in front of the line:
#own_window_type normal.

To have Conky start automatically in Gnome 2 do the following:
Go to Menu: System (or Preferences)>Preferences>Session (or Startup Applications)>Startup Programs> and add the conky_start.sh script provided:
Name: Conky Clock
Command: /home/(user's home)/.conclock/scripts/conky_start.sh

To have Conky start automatically in Gnome 3 do the following:
Open: (user's home)/.config/autostart and make a new file named conky.desktop and enter the folloing into it.

[desktop Entry]
Encoding=UTF-8
Version=0.9.4

Terminal=false

To change the clock face to a different style or color:
Look in (user's home)/.conclock at the different clock images and names (clock1, clock2, clock3, etc.)
Edit the .conclockrc file (in user's home/.conclockrc) and look for the lines (last lines in file):
.TEXT
# Change the clock image below #
${image ~/.conclock/clock1.png -p 5,26 -s 170x170}:
Change the clock1.png to the appropriate clock name desired (ie. clock3.png) and save file.

Not sure if this is still an active project. If so is there any way to get some help with it? I'm getting an error:

$ conky -c /home/madams/.conclockrc
conky: Syntax error (/home/madams/.conclockrc:65: unexpected symbol near '$') while reading config file.

Looks like something I'd really like to see on my desktop. Any help appreciated. Thanks!

I think I found a memleak.

After about two hours of run, conky increased more than 15 MB of memory as reported by command "pmap <pid_of_conky>".



Adding these two lines:

cairo_surface_destroy(cs)
cairo_destroy(cr)

at the end of the function "conky_clock_rings()" seems to fix this.
