Description:

Some people here at gnome-look has asked
me for my conky so I thought I'd upload it.

It is highly based on this one made by Hund:

http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/My+Conky+Config?content=62536

I don't remember what fonts it requires,
check for yourself :)

Hope you like it!

Btw, to use the audacious playback info
it has to be enabled at compiling with the
--enable-audacious parameter

You can use audtool to get the same information without recompiling Conky. I forget where I found it but this is what I have in my .conkyrc:

Quote:
${if_running audacious}
${color #e9c703}AUD:${color white} ${exec audtool --current-song | cut -b-34}
$color ${exec audtool --current-song-length} ${execbar expr 100 \* $(audtool --current-song-output-length-seconds) \/ $(audtool --current-song-length-seconds)}
$endif

Hi,
I've been using your original slickness theme for a while and was well pleased when I noticed the new version. This has been successfully installed, but as I'm very new to the Ubuntu arena I'm at a complete loss as to where to start to install the 'croncky'
I've downloaded the file and unpackaged it to it's own directory, but have no idea what to do next.
Your assistance or guidance for where best to find the required answers would be muchly appreciated.

Cheers,

Riv

Thanks!!

well, if you don't mean to use the
audacious playback it's very easy!

1. sudo apt-get install conky
2. extract the conkyrc file on your desktop
3. cp $HOME/Desktop/conkyrc $HOME/.conkyrc
4. alt+f2 type conky and press enter
5. (optional if you want to edit the configuration file)
alt+f2 type gedit .conkyrc and then the text
config file appears!

Have phun!!!

hope this helps!

As I wrote before place it in /usr/share/fonts/truetype/ but not in directory e.g. Zekton. You should have path /usr/share/fonts/truetype/Zekton.ttf (or other filetype - i don't remember)

The font doesn't work for me either. Actually no font does.

Conky: can't load font 'Sans:style=Bold:pixelsize=42'

Any ideas? The font Zekton works well in other programs.

Thanks for commenting Hund!

I didn't mean to upload this since
your conky is like 90% the same as this,
but since I started getting like 2-3 mails
a day asking for my conky I thought I'd upload it :)

as for the font you have 2 options palban83,
the first is to install the font
get it here:
http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Zekton?content=50553

or then you can edit the conkyrc to use another font

gedit .conkyrc and everywhere it says
zekton you change to whatever font you want :)

Hope this helps!
