Conky Script-Output Problem


Hi Friends,
yesterday i installed the little system-monitoring-tool conky, which works great!
I wrote a little bash-script to show my current WAN-IP and added this script in the conky.config:

Script:
Quote:
#!/bin/bash
cd /tmp
wget -q checkip.dyndns.org && cat index.html |grep -Eo 'Current IP Address:*.*.*.*'|sed 's/<\/body><\/html>/ /'
rm index.html
Line in conky.config:
Quote:
${color #00ff00}${execi 300 /home/ganimo/sec/scripts/bash/ip.sh}
i restarted conky and the script worked, but after the IP-Address is also a little square:Bildschirmfoto.jpg

How can i remove this? when i start the script in a shell, this square is not there?
I would be thankful for every answer.
ganimo

I don't know this conky program you mean but I did your sed script on that page:

Code:
[jon@jaydee Development]$ wget -q -O - checkip.dyndns.org | grep -Eo 'Current IP Address:*.*.*.*'| sed 's/<\/body><\/html>/ /'
Current IP Address: 82.132.136.207
[jon@jaydee Development]$ wget -q -O - checkip.dyndns.org | grep -Eo 'Current IP Address:*.*.*.*'| sed 's/<\/body><\/html>/ /' | od -t x1a
0000000 43 75 72 72 65 6e 74 20 49 50 20 41 64 64 72 65
          C   u   r   r   e   n   t  sp   I   P  sp   A   d   d   r   e
0000020 73 73 3a 20 38 32 2e 31 33 32 2e 31 33 36 2e 32
          s   s   :  sp   8   2   .   1   3   2   .   1   3   6   .   2
0000040 30 37 20 20 0a
          0   7  sp  sp  nl
0000045
There are two spaces and a linefeed on the end of the line. Maybe that is the problem?

Code:
[jon@jaydee Development]$ echo -n Current IP Address: `wget -q -O - checkip.dyndns.org | sed 's/^.*Address: \([^<]\{1,\}\)<.*/\1/'` | od -t x1a
0000000 43 75 72 72 65 6e 74 20 49 50 20 41 64 64 72 65
          C   u   r   r   e   n   t  sp   I   P  sp   A   d   d   r   e
0000020 73 73 3a 20 38 32 2e 31 33 32 2e 31 33 36 2e 32
          s   s   :  sp   8   2   .   1   3   2   .   1   3   6   .   2
0000040 30 37
          0   7
0000042
Try that...

If you have a uPnP router you could ask it for your IP instead.
