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)

what distro u use? Did u have installed the conky-all if using ubuntu?

The "default" conky package doesnt support it, thats why i use conky-all package

U can check in your distro if conky is compiled with this flag...

There is a bug with the CPU frequency display. I am running Ubuntu 10.10 and using cairo mode. With a Core 2 Duo cpu it shows the frequency of one core for both CPU displays. The solution was to remove the brackets from the freq_g call.

Instead of freq_g(1) and freq_g(2) I changed it to freq_q 1 and freq_g 2.

Hi there
In new to linux, and most posts are just greek to me :-/

I think I successfully executed part one of the terminal.
$sudo apt-get install aptitude python-statgrab ttf-droid hddtemp curl lm-sensors conky-all
$sudo chmod u+s /usr/sbin/hddtemp
$sudo sensors-detect #answering Yes (default) to all questions, even that last one that defaults to No

But now im stuck.
Download and extract the conky-colors.tar.gz and type in terminal in the same directory that has been extracted.

I guess its the first file
(Source (conky_colors))
Where do i put the newly downloaded file?
Or rather, whereto do i extract it?

If somebody could help a noob it will be greatly appreciated.
Its difficult to do fault finding if one dont even know what to look for :-/
Thank you.
newly downloaded 10.10 ubuntu for my netbook maverick, not sure where to see all the relevant info.

Not that hard, see:
Step 1:
Download conky-colors
Step 2:
Extract where u downloaded.
Ex: /home/myname/Downloads
Step 3:
Open Terminal and type: Quote:
cd /home/myname/Downloads/conky_colors
(Assuming that you have extracted there)
Step 4:
Type in terminal:Quote:
make
sudo make install
Step 5:
Be happy! :)
