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)

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

sorry,

the scripts in conkycolor are in "~/.conkycolors/bin/". There you will find conkyPhotoRandom script :)
Try to increment the voffset your .conkyrc:
${execi 360 ~/.conkycolors/bin/conkyPhotoRandom}${image /tmp/conkyPhoto.png -s 175x120 -p 4,346}${voffset 114}

Bem, o bbcweather não precisa de registro, só vc entrar lá no site "http://news.bbc.co.uk/weather/". O weather normal tem que fazer o registro nesse site: "http://www.weather.com/services/xmloap.html" depois editar o arquivo .conkyforecast dentro da pasta .conkycolors e coloca ele na sua home...

Flw!

Hi mate! I'm a noob in linux world and trying to learn more of that. I like too much your work and have already installed it. I have two questions for you:

1 - When I install your package I must be in /home folder or in /home/thx74 (my personal) folder? Or I must do it from root?

2 - Can you send me (or post) the config file for the 4th conky in picture?

Thanks a lot!!!

P.S Yep! You're right! These are three questions ;)

P.P.S. Sorry for my (bad) english!

well,

1 question:
in your home (/home/thx74) is the better place, but you can also change it to whereve you want, but you must change the path in your conkyrc also, and install it as a normal user, not as root...

2 question:
Quote:
./conky-colors --proc=3 --clock=default --calendar --photord --banshee=oldvinyl --hd=mix

you can try this in terminal:
cd ~/Desktop
wget http://www.gnome-look.org/CONTENT/content-files/92328-conky_colors.tar.gz
tar -zxvf 92328-conky_colors.tar.gz
cd conky_colors
make
./conky-colors --lang=pt --hd --network --calendar
make install
conky

You can add more options, they are listed in --help option.
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

don't forget the "make install" after choose your options...

Hi,

I am wondering whether any PPA exists for this nice project or not?

It will be ideal to add the ppa and let Linux fetch the projects latest updates.

Again, thanks for the great job.

unfortunately not yet, some changes must be made within the program before, but I plan to do something to finally be able to create a deb and put in a ppa.

I finally managed to install conky with conky colors enabled.

All of my widgets works fine except the network widget.

Can you please let me know:

- What is the default interface for the netowrk widget?

I tried --network --wlan0 but it does not show my currect bit rate. maybe because my network is slow it can not detect any transmission?


Thanks

Try to check what is your eth or wlan device(eth0 or eth1 or wlan0 or wlan1...), you can check it with "ifconfig" or "route" commands in terminal, and then, change it with the option --eth=(number) or --wlan=(number).
Other user had the same problem and fixed it installing the newer version, maybe this is your case too.

Hi,

Thank you for helping me out.
I tried the ifconfig command and it is showing lo, eth0, wlan0 wmaster0. I am using wifi so the wlan0 should be the item I want to monitor.

I am using the following command to generate the conkyrc file

./conky-colors --clock=modern --calendar=default -m --proc=3 --banshee=vinyl --network --wlan=0 --ubuntu --theme=gnome-wine --hd=meerkat --dark --lang=english --cpu=2 --battery --cputemp --hdtemp1=sda --swap

Problem is that the bit rate is still 0 and the amount of downloaded and uploaded is the fixed value which was in yesterday (2.21M, 8.72M )

Maybe I need to install some additional software to make it work?

Thanks

hummm... your wlan and eth is right.
What is your conky version? Is there some warnings when you launch conky from terminal?
No, you don't need to install anything else to make conky work with network.
The only thing i can say now is:
Try to install the new conky version...

the default wlan eth and ppp devices are wlan0, eth0 and ppp0.

by the way, u can easily modify/see all conky options by editing the ".conkyrc" file in your home

U can also try a little more help in this forum: [url] http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=281865&page=1150 [/url]. All the developers are there :)
