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)

let's see... did work with --photo option?
I had a problem in my archlinux with --photord because of a missing program called "bc". Try to check if imagemagick is installed also.

I did find a bit of a hitch..
While trying to manually edit the formatting is a bit hard to follow. Nothing really seperated or anything so its a difficult thing to find one area or follow the overall layout.

But for the glitch.. I chose 2 cores/cpus and once I make the adjustment above the temps worked fine however ACPI reports my actual CPU temp to be much lower than the actual cores individually So.. how do I get temp1 to show above the current Core0 and Core1 without throwing the whole of it off?

As for you gents above.. I had a similar issue however mine was 'Core0' not 'Core 0'. Once I took out the space by editing ~/.conkyrc it worked fine.

I have a small issue.. photo I have a directory and the images are in folders within a folder for example ./PHOTOS and in it is 2009-04 etc can we get it to do a recursive scan?

Aside of that.. the only recommendations I could offer are:
1. RSS Feeds (pointless but about the only thing you dont have in here).
2. Order: Some form of method to specify the order the sections are displayed in (top to bottom)
3. Temps: Your doing a F/C universally across the board.. as I am in the US the weather is beneficial in F but not the rest of the system.

Solved my own 'recursive question' by editing photorandom script:

number=$(ls -R | wc -l)

I use R script under Ubuntu 9.10. Great job !
Just one thing : if U use, like me, *OpenBox* rather Gnome or KDE, so change in R .conkyrc that :
"own_window_type Desktop"
That's all. It works fine.

I love this script, but it doesn't seem to be working in Ubuntu Lucid. The version of conky is 1.7.2. I simply get no change on my desktop...

Here's the terminal output:
Conky: border_margin is deprecated, please use window.border_inner_margin instead
Conky: desktop window (2c0001d) is subwindow of root window (110)
Conky: window type - override
Conky: drawing to created window (0x4e00001)
Conky: drawing to double buffer

I tried the 1.8.0 version from the PPA and the only thing that changed was the first line of terminal output:
.conkyrc: 23: no such configuration: 'border_margin'

Sorry, i really don't know what could be this bug and i'm not using lucid yet. :( Probably i will install it on the next week, so i could try to find a solution.

It works now for me- it might have been a video driver issue. The only issue is that the harddrive icon overlaps slightly onto the Network word if there's only one drive present.

Hi all, i have just started using conky.
Everything works good, but it does not show me my network which is configured at eth0.
Also can someone tell how to get cpu temperatures, i am using amd phenom quad core (k10) series, i get no driver from lm-sensors.

Hey nice and good work done!! I would like to know how I could change the size of the photo? I would like to make it bigger!

thanks,
Edit the .conkyrc in your home, a string like that:

${execi 360 ~/.conkycolors/bin/conkyPhotoRandom}${image /tmp/conkyPhoto.png -s 175x120 -p 4,346}${voffset 114}

Just change the bold values and edit the conkyPhoto/conkyPhotoRandom script with the same values

thank you for answering so quick, Ive got one more question. How can I change the width of the conky? because when I change the width of the picture it comes outside the screen. Would like to push the conky more to the left.

Quote:minimum_size 182 0
maximum_width 182
and than, change this values. that's all :D
