10.1 - script files


Hi There - hope someone can help.

I am trying to configure 'Liquid Weather' on the desktop. So far I have some things that are showing ok. When I try and edit the script I have got a bit stuck, the following files when I look in my root dir seem to be in a different place to where the script indicates.

mountpoint /home /mnt/hda1 hdb

also can't find

networks eth0 /sbin/ip addr show eth0

My questions is if - when I find these files, should I copy them to the location of 'Liquid Weather' to get it to run.


Thanks for looking

Could you please post a copy of (parts of) the script, and point at the faulty line(s)?

Exactly which files? `mountpoint /home /mnt/hda1 hdb'?
There probably is no file called `mountpoint'--that's just the technical term for `the directory in which you mount <foo>' (= "foo's mountpoint").

now `hdb' is probably only the correct path to the file you want if you're in /dev;

but having /dev/hda1 mount at /home -- that makes sense.

Unfortunately I don't have the context--so please post the script as I said.

Thank you jonaskoelker for trying to answer my question, just sorry I did not explain myself to well. Here is the script I am stuck on.

# Harddrive Information
text x=50 y=163 value="/" color=0,0,0 fontsize=9 font="Omicron Zeta"
text x=90 y=163 sensor=disk mountpoint="/" format="%u MB / %up%" color=1,1,1 fontsize=9 font="Omicron Zeta" interval=60000
bar x=92 y=175 sensor=disk mountpoint="/" format="%up" path="progress.png"

text x=50 y=173 value="/home" color=0,0,0 fontsize=9 font="Omicron Zeta"
text x=90 y=173 sensor=disk mountpoint="/home" format="%u MB / %up%" color=1,1,1 fontsize=9 font="Omicron Zeta" interval=60000
bar x=92 y=185 sensor=disk mountpoint="/home" format="%up" path="progress.png"

text x=50 y=183 value="/hda1" color=0,0,0 fontsize=9 font="Omicron Zeta"
text x=90 y=183 sensor=disk mountpoint="/mnt/hda1" format="%u MB / %up%" color=1,1,1 fontsize=9 font="Omicron Zeta" interval=60000
bar x=92 y=195 sensor=disk mountpoint="/mnt/hda1" format="%up" path="progress.png"

text x=50 y=193 value="/hdb" color=0,0,0 fontsize=9 font="Omicron Zeta"
text x=90 y=193 sensor=disk mountpoint="/hdb" format="%u MB / %up%" color=1,1,1 fontsize=9 font="Omicron Zeta" interval=60000
bar x=92 y=205 sensor=disk mountpoint="/hdb" format="%up" path="progress.png"

### and here is the network part of the script####

# Network Information
text x=50 y=218 value="Down:" color=0,0,0 fontsize=9 font="Omicron Zeta"
text x=90 y=218 sensor=network device="eth0" format="%in kb/s" color=1,1,1 fontsize=9 font="Omicron Zeta" interval=1000
text x=50 y=228 value="Up:" color=0,0,0 fontsize=9 font="Omicron Zeta"
text x=90 y=228 sensor=network device="eth0" format="%out kb/s" color=1,1,1 fontsize=9 font="Omicron Zeta" interval=1000
text x=50 y=238 value="IP:" color=0,0,0 fontsize=9 font="Omicron Zeta"
text x=90 y=238 sensor=program program="/sbin/ip addr show eth0 | grep 'inet ' | cut -d t -f2 | cut -d / -f1 | cut -b 2-" color=1,1,1 fontsize=9 font="Omicron Zeta"

####

I need to enter the correct details for this script but cannot find where they are on my system, and also if I find where they are, what do I do next.

Sorry this sounds such a stupid question but not had much experience of this.

Thanks again for trying to help.

Could you try to state clearly:
1) What you're trying to do--seen both from a user's POV and from a programmers POV.
2) How you're trying to do it.
3) What the exact problem is.

Hi again -

It's a bit difficult for me to explain so please bear with me.

# I have installed 'Liquid Weather' on the desktop ok but some of the figures do not correspond to what I have on my system. So I would like to edit the scipt so that it will show the correct figures.

At the moment it indicates that /home has 422mb/1%
/hda1 has 0 mb/0%
/hdb has 0 mb/0%

The newwork configuration has Down: 0 kb/s
Up: 0 kb/s
IP:

Firstly I would like to find out where and what /hda I have on my system

Second I would like to be able to enter my IP address, but don't know where to find it.

If I find answers to the above questions, what do I have to do if the file is in the wrong place

# I hope the above makes some sense to you so please forgive my ignorance.

Thanks again

You can always try 127.0.0.1 or localhost (they're always "this computer").
but also
Code:
$ ip addr show
$ ip addr show eth0

Errm... which file?

You're willing to learn. That's infinitely more important than how much you know *now*.

Thanks again for your reply

Here is the output of $df -h


Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda1 5.8G 2.5G 3.0G 46% /
/dev/hda6 106G 425M 106G 1% /home

Here is the output of $show ip addr

$No such command

Now that I have the info about the /dev/hda1 and /dev/hda6 how can I find the address( or place ) where these are kept. When I find that info, do I insert that in the script.

#
Have tried entering several different combinations of the $show ip addr but still cannot get any info on that.
Maybe you might have another suggestion.

Thanks again for your help - just sorry that I am painfully slow in picking things up

It's "ip addr show", not "show ip addr".

if you, on `$ ip', get `no such command', try these:
Code:
$ whereis ip
$ locate 'ip' | grep '/ip$'
$ find / -name 'ip'

What to you mean "the place where they're kept"? Where what are kept? You mean the mount points of /dev/hda1 and -6?

The mount points are shown by `df -h'.

I'm still not sure what info you're trying to find.
