Description:

Now it's easy to customize your desktop!

Conky is a free, light-weight system monitor for X, that displays any information on your desktop.

CONKY-colors is an easier way to configure Conky.

This conky script support multilanguage:
Bulgarian, English, German, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Ukrainian

How to install
Go to a terminal and type:
$sudo apt-get install aptitude python-statgrab python-keyring ttf-ubuntu-font-family hddtemp curl lm-sensors conky-all
$sudo chmod u+s /usr/sbin/hddtemp || https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=75639
$sudo sensors-detect #answering Yes (default) to all questions, even that last one that defaults to No

Now restart your session

Download and extract the conky-colors.zip and type in terminal in the same directory that has been extracted.
$make
$sudo make install
$conky-colors {options}

$conky-colors --help [for help]

Ex: if your cpu is quad-core and you want the noble color, with hd, network and pidgin monitor and all in portuguese
conky-colors --theme=gnome-noble --lang=pt --cpu=4 --network --hd=default --pidgin

For a working photo widget you need to specify a file or directory in conkyPhoto or conkyPhotoRandom script in ~/.conkycolors/bin/

Update your font cache:
$sudo fc-cache -v -f

+++ If you can, say thanks to him for this great work +++

in terminal type conky -c ~/.conkycolors/conkyrc.

To run conky at startup, go to System > Preferences > Startup Applications, click "Add" and add the path to the conkyStart file[/usr/share/conkycolors/bin/conkystart]

that's all folks!

OPTIONS FROM THE SCREENSHOT:
conky-colors --cpu=2 --calendar --photord --clementine=cd --hd=default --network --theme=wise
conky-colors --sls --weather=brxx0043 --theme=orange
conky-colors --cairo --cpu=2 --clock=cairo --network --theme=blue
conky-colors --ring --network --theme=red
conky-colors --slim --w=1440 --h=900 --theme=white --weather=brxx0043
conky-colors --board --w=1440 --h=900 --theme=cyan

KWON PROBLEMS:
Lua/bash scripts work with conky 1.8.1, but most of the python scripts still doesnt;
SLS MODE only work with lm-sensors configured
The position of the photo and cover may be wrong bc in ubuntu the space between the widgets is different from Archlinux (I'm an arch user now)

As many other people here, i can't get Conky to show the album art.

I have downloaded the hardcore conky scripts and the conky colour scripts; not sure if they are the same or any different.

If anyone has a method to get it to work

I am using rhythmbox and it is not showing the album art in conky.I have looked into what may be causing this problem and it seems that it is all set up right.Any ideas what might be causing this?

When I go to run Conky after the install, all I get is the basic standard black and white right side Conky. Am I being stupid? Did I miss something?? :S

Yes and set it up properly. Now I see the album cover in this place: "cover=/tmp/conkyCover.png" but on my desktop nothing... :(
I don't know where is the problem. Here is my conkycover.sh :



" #!/bin/bash
#
# Album art with cd theme in conky
# by helmuthdu

player="`python ~/.conkycolors/scripts/conkyBanshee.py --datatype=CA | sed -e 's/\\\//g'`"
icon=~/.conkycolors/icons/Players/banshee.png
cover=/tmp/conkyCover.png

if [ ! -f "$player" ]; then
cp $icon $cover
#convert ~/.conkycolors/icons/CD/base.png ~/.conkycolors/icons/CD/top.png -geometry +0+0 -composite $cover
else
convert "$player" -thumbnail 98x98 $cover
convert ~/.conkycolors/icons/CD/base.png $cover -geometry +19+5 -composite ~/.conkycolors/icons/CD/top.png -geometry +0+0 -composite $cover
fi

exit 0 "




Thank You

Sorry but i couldn't figure it out.
This is my conkyCover.sh:
#!/bin/bash
#
# Album art with cd theme in conky
# by helmuthdu

player="`~/.conkycolors/bin/conkyRhythmbox --datatype=CA | sed 's/[%20 ]\+/\\ /g'`"
icon=~/.conkycolors/icons/Players/rhythmbox.png
cover=/tmp/conkyCover.png

if [ ! -f "$player" ]; then
convert ~/.conkycolors/icons/Glassy/base.png ~/.conkycolors/icons/Glassy/top.png -geometry +0+0 -composite $cover
else
convert "$player" -thumbnail 92x92 $cover
convert ~/.conkycolors/icons/Glassy/base.png $cover -geometry +23+8 -composite ~/.conkycolors/icons/Glassy/top.png -geometry +0+0 -composite $cover
fi

exit 0

And this is my conkyPlayer.template:

${image /tmp/conkyCover.png -s 68x60 -p 24,541}${voffset 4}${color0}${font Musicelements:size=18}z${font}${color}${voffset -8}${goto 32}Status:${alignr}${color2}[--datatype=ST]${color}
${voffset 4}${goto 100}${color2}[--datatype=AR]${color}
${goto 100}${color2}[--datatype=AL]${color}
${goto 100}${color2}[--datatype=TI]${color}
${goto 100}${color2}[--datatype=PT]/[--datatype=LE]${color}

Thanks for your continued work on this script.
I'm having a problem with the MPD widget. Everything displays as (null), even while I'm playing something on MPD. I wonder if it's a permission issue... Any ideas?

Thanks!

Hi, thanks for the great script, how would I modify it to make Conky kick-in just after Compiz initializes? I made Compiz start using the Compiz Fusion Icon in my System > Preferences > Startup Applications, but after adding the Conky startup script to the Startup Applications menu, it always launches first, re-rendering after Compiz, and Conky has this weird glow/shadow around its redraw pane. Any suggestions?

Cara, esses erros são muito aleatórios :P
Eu diria para vc dar um ifconfig no terminal e checar realmente qual é o dispositivo que o seu linux está usando(wlan0, eth0 e etc), ai mudar lá no conkyrc (todos os wlan0, não só o da condição do início, deve ter um 5 ou 6 para vc mudar).
Se não, tenta instalar a última versão do conky (v1.8).
Se ainda assim não funcionar, tente consultar o oráculo(google) :P

eh, como eu te disse, já tinha mudado todos, não só o da condição do inicio, já tinha visto com o ifconfig também qual é o dispositivo. Atualizei a versão do conky e não funcionou. No google também não achei nada a respeito, mas de qualquer forma valeu pela força. Abraço e parabéns pelo trabalho
