Description:

Conky is a free, light-weight system monitor for X, that displays any information on your desktop.

There is a Howto for this configuration files in the archive included. The clock and the other graphics, including the transparent background, are made with special fonts I made for conky.

First, if you don't already have, install conky and acpi(as root/sudo).

Ubuntu: sudo apt-get install conky acpi
Fedora: yum install conky acpi
Opensuse: zypper install conky acpi


Then follow the instructions in the howto.txt in the tarbal.

There is a font called "clockfaces.ttf" in the archive. With this fonts you have around 20 possible designs. Vistit http://conky.linux-hardcore.com/?page_id=583 for more informations, or http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=281865&page=676 for help

Hi i would firstly like to say WOW! i have never seen anything like this for conky, its amazing i love it lol. i've just got a few minor issues that i was hoping you could resolve.

1.
when i run .moconkyconfig4 it seems to run fine except that i get this message repeated in my terminal

./moconkyconfig/scripts/acorbattery.sh: line 6: acpi: command not found
sh: acpi: not found
sh: acpi: not found
sh: acpi: not found
sh: acpi: not found
sh: acpi: not found
sh: acpi: not found
sh: acpi: not found
sh: acpi: not found
sh: acpi: not found
sh: acpi: not found
./moconkyconfig/scripts/acorbattery.sh: line 6: acpi: command not found

what does it mean and how can t be resolved?

2. my .zoraclock seems to work flawlessly except for the fact that it has this blue outline of a box over part of the clock, do you know what could be causing this?

Thanks for your help,
James

Thanks, I love it, too.

1. Question:
Sorry, I forgot to mention that you need to install acpi as well. For Ubuntu it's just

sudo apt-get install acpi

If you don't want to have acpi running, edit your /boot/grub/menu.lst and add

ACPI=off

to the end of the line of the kernel you want to boot.

2. Question:
Not easy to answer without screenshot. Is it a square? Check if you have a "space" or "Tab" at the end of the line. (" ") If you can't solve it, you are very welcome to the Ubuntu Forum :) Click the link above and post screenshot, .conkyrc and scripts. You will get help there from Bruce, Crinos512 or t-mo_ (me). I am there almost every day.

1. Thanks for this it now works perfectly =)
2. I searched through the code but could not find any instances of either. I took a screen shot of it and posted it on the conkyrc thread on the ubuntu forums as im not sure if or how you can upload them here.
