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

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)

it's not stupid, but, correct me if i'm wrong. you want know how to change the wheather locale, yes?
You can open your .conkyrc and edit the weather part(at the bottom), or, genereted a new one with the option --weather=<your_area_code> (ex: --weather=brxx0043). the bbcweather work in the same way.

well, I had some problem changing the output for conkyForecast in italian (eg. "Luna Nuova" for "New Moon").
Then I found the "bug". When I was launching conkyForecast from the terminal it worked flawlessly in italian, but it was in english in conky.
I found that the version of conkyForecast.py (in ~/.conkycolors/scripts/) is outdated. When I changed to the one found in the ppa (conky-hardcore if I remember) it started working.

So, maybe, you can update conkyForecast in the next werion.

Thanks for your work.

Wow, I really need some help with this... I'm new to Ubuntu and I can see that nearly everyone understands the instructions pretty well, so hopefully someone can lead me in the right direction.

My problem is with
$make
$./conky-colors --help
$./conky-colors
$make install

I've tried running it from my home directory and my downloads directory, i get the same results each time.
shawn@shawn-laptop:~$ $make
shawn@shawn-laptop:~$ $./conky-colors --help
bash: $./conky-colors: No such file or directory
shawn@shawn-laptop:~$ $./conky-colors
bash: $./conky-colors: No such file or directory
shawn@shawn-laptop:~$ $make install
install: missing file operand
Try `install --help' for more information.
shawn@shawn-laptop:~$

Could someone please message me and help me out with this?

Well, whats your distro? If ubuntu, try to install conky-all instead of conky package. Your conky must be compiled with mlib2 option, if i'm not wrong...

I was facing the same problem with the Photo widget and Banshee/Rhythmbox covers not being positioned properly. I figured out what was causing it. Conky-colors calculates the positions for these. But the calculations are based on an Appearance setup where the Fonts Resolution is set to 96 dots per inch. This setting can be found here: Preferences > Appearance > Fonts > Details > Resolution. If the Font Resolution is set to 96, everything will display properly. But if it's a different value, the positions of the widgets aren't right anymore. So you can do two things:
- Set the Font Resolution back to 96;
- Or manually edit the .conkyrc file. Look for "-p h,v" where h and v are integers. You can change v to alter the vertical position of the widget.

Solved when I updated my Ubuntu, had to download and install it again, now beta2.
Now there's another problem, it only runs with sudo and, when not, nothing really works xD
thnx

Did you installed the ttf-liberation package? There is something wrong with the fonts in your conky.
I tested here with your options and everything was fine...

ttf-liberation package is installed =/
I tried to increase my desktop/application font size (is't 8 actually), but conky's font didn't change.
Obs: I forgot to meant that I'm using Ubuntu Lucid.
