NOTE: Originally Conky Sentinel was prepared for 1366x768 resolution but has been adapted to others resolutions. Obviously, you can touch the code for your optimal resolution. If you want to show Audacious Cover on your desktop, don't forget rename your album cover into music folder to "folder.jpg". If you want receive facebook notifications in Conky go to http://www.taringa.net/posts/linux/12952099/notificaciones-de-facebook-en-conky.html and follow the tutorial.

* NOTES ABOUT CONKY SENTINEL RELOADED.

Conky Sentinel Reloaded is using 01.png background image by default. If you want use the other image (02.png), do this:

* Open a terminal and type:

sudo gedit .Conky/sentinel-reloaded/config/conkyrc1

In this file, find "01.png" and change to "02.png" (Remember, no quotes).

Below, find "{color black}" and change to "{color red}" (Remember, no quotes)

Save and exit. That's all.

* HOW TO CHANGE PICS IN A NEW DESKTOP PICTURE SCREEN (This feature is available only in Conky Sentinel 1280x1024 resolution)

* Go to .Conky/sentinel/pics and select your favorite logo o picture. If don't like these pictures, just drag your best pictures -dad, mom, pet, girlfriend, etc- from your database pictures. Then;

* Open a terminal and type:

sudo gedit .Conky/sentinel/config/conkyrc18

At the bottom, just change "debian.png" for other.

Some examples:

${image ~/.Conky/sentinel/pics/tux.png -p 0,0 -s 128x128}

${image ~/.Conky/sentinel/pics/gnu.png -p 0,0 -s 128x128}

${image ~/.Conky/sentinel/pics/YOUR_NAMEFILE_PICTURE -p 0,0 -s 128x128}

Save change and exit. That's all.

Greatings!

Hey, could you please walk me through the process of resizing the resolution to 1600x900? I looked through the config files, but it seems they are all for something different

Unfortunately, Sentinel was prepared for 1366x768 resolution. I got these resolution in my M11x R2.

If you want other resolution, you must edit each conkyrc file manually.

Only touch axis in each conkyrc file.

Example (conkyrc1):

gap_x 230 <---> 250
gap_y 603 <---> 650

Save and look changes. Increase or decrease until to get the best position. Position is a complicated issue. But with patience and time you will be successful. Just try.

If I got a machine with 1600x900 resolution, I promise configure Sentinel for these resolution, and upload files.

Good luck!

Hi, I am new to linux in general and absolutely love what you have done here. The only issue I am running into is my laptop is 1280 X 800 and I have no idea how to get this set to that resolution. Can you please help, would love to have this up and running on my system. Thanks in advance!

Es el complemento ideal con Sentinel. ¡Le va perfecto! Sólo modifiqué las imagenes (backgrounds) en rojo para que vaya a tono con el tema. Desde luego, todo el crédito es tuyo, UBUNTICO.

Please check your paths.

* Battery

Open a Terminal and type:

cd /
cd sys/class/power_supply/

If you see BAT0, then go to scripts folder and edit rings6.lua. Just change parameter arg="BAT1" to arg="BAT0" or werever.

* Save and exit.
* Kill all instances of Conky Sentinel with sudo killall conky
* Reload Conky Sentinel opening a new terminal and type:

conky -c .Conky/sentinel/config/conkyrc1
conky -c .Conky/sentinel/config/conkyrc2
conky -c .Conky/sentinel/config/conkyrc3 ...

* Mixer

Execute alsamixer. Open a terminal and type:

alsamixer

Do same with Mixer editing rings7.lua and change the parameter arg="Master" to Headphone, Speaker, PCM or werever. Just tried.

* conkyrc13

Edit barras.lua and change the parameters arg="cpu0" depending your cpu cores.

Good luck!

* Mixer

Just edit rings7.lua. Change the parameter arg="Master" for "PCM" or "Speaker". Just tried and reload Conky Sentinel.

* How determine cpu cores

Its very easy. Open a terminal and type:

cd /
cat proc/cpuinfo

Check the lines named "processor". If you see processor: 0, processor :1, processor :2, processor: 3... etc. In this case, 0 is 1, 1 is 2, 2 is 3, 3 is 4, etc...

So edit barras.lua, rings2.lua, rings3.lua and rings4.lua and make the necessary adjustment. Change the parameter arg="cpu0" for "cpu1", "cpu2, "cpu3", etc... depending your cpu cores (cat /proc/cpuinfo)

Good luck!
