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

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)

Using Xubuntu 11.04. I had to deal with 2 little problems and I'm posting the solution here, so it can be implemented in further versions if necessary.

When enabling the --calendarm option to show a calendar with weeks starting on Monday, conky-colors showed no calendar at all. Launching conky in terminal showed tips about using "cal" command. The command "cal -M" is not a valid argument and "cal -m" expects a month as an argument (the one to be displayed). After some research I found the command to use is "ncal -b".

Enabling --battery showed an empty bar and no info about the battery. Terminal gave an error saying that battery "8,60" couldn't be found. Examining conkyrc y found a line under BATTERY that ends with:

"{battery_bar 8,60 BAT0}${color}"

I changed this end with:

"{battery_bar BAT0 8,60}${color}"

and seemed to work, althoug I'm not sure if this change is well made.

Last question (which I still can't solve) is: How can conky-colors show 6 weeks months. I did all this on october 31st and conky-colors only showed 5 weeks for october 2011 (and this month has 6 weeks). In console, "ncal -b" shows all weeks, it's just the implementation in conky-colors that shows only 5.

Thanks, great work.

Just found the solution to 6 weeks months.

In conkyrc, where it says:

sed '2,7!d'

Changing it to:

sed '2,8!d'

shows 1 more week.

Please confirm if this is right.

Thanks and thanks for such a great tool.

(::) This is a tip to automatically start conky while logging into your GNOME 3 desktop.

[*] Create an ordinary file in your ~/.config/autostart directory.

NOTE: If the ~/.config/autostart directory is not present, you will have to create it.

[*] Now enter the following data in the file.

[Desktop Entry]
Type=Application
Exec=/usr/bin/conke
Hidden=false
X-GNOME-Autostart-enabled=true
Name[en_US]=conky
Name=conky
Comment[en_US]=light-weight system monitor for X
Comment=light-weight system monitor for X

[*] save and close the file.

[*] Lastly rename the file to [ conky.desktop ]

That is it. Next time you start GNOME 3, conky will automatically start running.

TESTED ON UBUNTU 11.04 GNOME-SHELL 3.0.2

you can also do it "the old way"..

create an empty file in /home and call it
.conky-startup-sh
, then open the file, and put something like
#!/bin/bash
sleep 30 && conky ;
(change the 30 to however many seconds you want it to wait before starting)
Then simply add that to your startup applications.
Good to go.

I use Ubuntu 11.04
You made a mistake in cal's option. It must be "cal -h", not "cal --h".

The problem in my machine is that the "today" is not highlight, instead around it appears 2 strange character, making the calendar distort.
