Description:

Based on both versions of the Debian-Slate theme from which I took inspiration (and much of the code) for this project.

I extrapolated different features, taken from one or the other version, trying to satisfy my personal tastes and trying to get a satisfying result that would fit my widesceen monitor (both original versions overwhelm the limits of my screen) and I was forced to prune some branches of the tree or, at least, to give a small thinning.

Obviously I planted this theme on the distribution that I use, therefore I wanted to pay tribute to Fedora.

Installation instructions:

- Extract the compressed file and put the .conkyrc file in your home folder.
- Edit the name of the network interface in the ~/.conkyrc file to allow correct detection.

(To view hidden .files and .folders, use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+H)


P.S.: Only the conky configuration file is available for this theme.

*** The theme appearance may change depending on the used video resolution. ***

Thanks, even though I'm starting to realize how complex it is to be able to adapt a theme to all contexts. I was forced, for example, to readapt the theme when I started using another desktop environment. In the end I believe that obviously nothing is impossible, but it is not within everyone's reach (including me) to create a theme that can adapt to any context. My hope is that there is someone who can improve, where improvable, the ideas that I propose.

Yes--I design themes to "fit" a number of different uses, but always note that the individual will have to customize the theme to "taste". I have always thought that it is a good thing for people to learn how to do things for themselves. That is the main reason I don't conform to things like Conky Manager---I think that someone needs to know how to do things the manual way.

Maybe 'cause I upload the configuration file as hidden (.conkyrc). Try to rename it as you want and copy it in a folder inside your ~/.conky folder.
Conky Manager surely makes things easier, but try to understand them to have a little mastery of the operating system and its aspects. Open your minds!

No, it is not because it is a hidden file. The problem is the syntax., the way of coding. If i add only the line "TEXT" before "conky.text=[[", it is visible but not working.

however I cannot guarantee the correct functioning of the theme using it through conky manager. I didn't change it thinking about that kind of use and I didn't have a chance to test it with conky manager.

Presumably, conky manager is still based on the old conky code while, for some years now (since the release of version 1.10 of conky), the conky configuration files are based on lua.
Then, you should remove both strings that delimit the sections conky.config and conky.text (and relative brackets), as in this example https://is.gd/IluWR5

try doing execi 360 rpm search instead.....not sure if that would work, I'm not good in low-level rpm commands.

Looks Good---I must admit I do my Conkys on a 34" widescreen...It's the one I use most of the time--satisfies wanting a terminal look for my conky. The "own_window_argb_value" & "own_window_color" are needed for use with Gnome3 in debian distros....I don't know what the update request for RPM-based distros need...As it is coded--it uses a dpkg code that is Debian-specific.

I use Mate-Compiz DE on Fedora and the theme works smootly without the need of the "own_window_argb_value" & "own_window_color" variables.
For the update info I've used dnf in sostitution of aptitude. The command dnf check-update work fine when there's updates (it shows the correct number of updates), but always returns 1 as a result when there are no updates.

I think I solved it, it was enough to use the --quite option
The command dnf -q check-update seems to work much better.

Minor personal improvements, to satisfy some personal concepts.

1.8 10 months ago

Optimized and revised the command to obtain reliable information on the number of packages available for updating (not optimized at best previously).

1.5 11 months ago

- Removed the surplus space characters for a better (IMHO) visualization of the theme and, probably, a higher compatibility also with other resolutions.
- Other minor personal improvements, to satisfy some personal concepts.

1.2 11 months ago

- Fixed the available update info.
- Added again the 'own_window_argb_value' and 'own_window_colour' variables (but left commented), as suggested by the author of the original project, for a better integration with the Gnome 3 desktop environment.
- Other minor improvements.

1.1 11 months ago

Features removed:
- removed the 'own_window_argb_value' and 'own_window_colour' variables (however commented in the second version of the original theme),
- removed the entire branch concerning CPU frequencies,
- reduced the branches of processes and temperatures.

Todo list:
I'd like to keep the information on available updates (it's commented on the config file, then it isn't visible), but the command used always returns 1 when there are no updates even if, when there are updates, it returns the correct number of updatable packages... to be improved.
