When I first installed this, I ran into a little bug where the network ring was overflowing and running into the text.

Decided to share the fix with everyone.

Replace:
Quote:

local function setup_rings(cr,pt)
local str=''
local value=0

str=string.format('${%s %s}',pt['name'],pt['arg'])
str=conky_parse(str)

value=tonumber(str)
pct=value/pt['max']

draw_ring(cr,pct,pt)
end


With:
Quote:

local function setup_rings(cr,pt)
local str=''
local value=0

str=string.format('${%s %s}',pt['name'],pt['arg'])
str=conky_parse(str)

value=tonumber(str)
pct=value/pt['max']

-- Maximum should only be 1.000 (100%)
if (pct > 1) then
pct = 1
end

draw_ring(cr,pct,pt)
end


This makes sure that the rings always stay within the 100% boundary.

Many Thanks despot!!! Great work.

I make some revisions and added icon for RHEL6/Scientific-Linux6/CentOS6/PRIUS6.

Removed swap and disk usage meters. Added top 5 processes by CPU and top 5 by MEM usage.
Some colour modifications. Couldn't get the weather part working, so I commented it out.
I'll try to fix that sometime.

Here's the link to the file:

Hey there,

Thanks for this cool conky!
I just have a small question. conky-all works on ubuntu, however i'm using fedora. My problem is with the weather tag. I though it comes straigh with conky but I see ${weather} instead of the real temperature. Which is the .rpm for this "script"?

Thanks again and gl!

thanks for this, my desktop looks really sweet now. Im allowed to upload my customization of this? I edited all the configs for dual core and wlan. Then made launchers to start each color and one to stop it. No terminal needed.

Im having issues installing this.

Im using Ubuntu 10.10.

I installed conky: "sudo apt-get install conky"

Made the .lua directory: "mkdir ~/.lua

Made the conky directory: mkdir ~/.conky

Made the font directory: mkdir /.fonts

Copyed the rings file into .lua: cp clock_rings.lua ~/.lua

Copyed the conky file to the conky folder: cp conkyrc ~/.conky

Copyed the image file to the conky folder: cp logo.png ~/.conkyrc

And finally I start conky: concky

And I get the standard conky display and not the custom one?

First install the font neuropolitical !!!

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

Create a folder called ".conky" in your home directory and copy the logo.png image to this folder

In your home directory create a folder called ".lua" and inside this folder, create a new folder called "scripts". Here, copy the "clock_rings.lua" file (necessarily "scripts")

Copy the "conkyrc" file in your home directory and rename it to ".conkyrc"

To set the weather for your city, go to http://weather.noaa.gov and search for your city. The URL will then look like this (this is for my country / city): http://weather.noaa.gov/weather/current/LQBK.html - copy the code at the end (LQBK in my case) and in the ~/.conkyrc file, replace "LQBK" with your code
