The conky-ness thread!


Hello all!

Since we have a new sub-forum dedicated to screenshots, I figured I would create a new thread for bad@$$ conky-based screenshots. I really admire the use of conky, as you can do so much with it. To start, I have included a few shots of my laptop with multiple instances of conky running.

Cheers,

Josh

*conks you over the head* You're such a dork. Still using that same, tired ol' wallpaper, I see, even though someone sent you some fresh material.

Back OT, though... Yeah, conky's cool. I swear everyone uses it, and those who don't should. Y'know, so they can be like Josh (corp769). LOL!

You know I'm deploying today. Do you think I have the time to do that yet? NO! Give it a few days

Great shots you've got there.
I also run conky even if i limit it to only one instance and use another term to tail -f /var/log/messages
Great work and keep on!

Mine is extremely simplistic. Just a bar on top with a single line of info.
Don't really need much more on a netbook.

I noticed that most people prefer simplicity, whereas some, like myself, enjoy going all out. I'm about to redesign some of the code and script on my new alienware, so I should be posting more screenshots in about a week or two.

Kinda simplistic. This Laptop (old but trusty IBM T23) has a bigger screen than my eeepc 701SD and 900 ,(I run horizontal conkys also). So I run fluxbox,conky,and tint2 on it. Kinda like a fake gnome 3 setup. Tint2 is set to autohide when not in use.

I start it with this script that takes care of the hwmon directory inside /sys, which sometimes appear as hwmon0 and sometimes as hwmon1, so I tweak some refs in the rc file with sed file before I fire up conky. You might not need this.

Code:
#/bin/bash
sleep 10
conkyrc="/home/me/data/box/themes/conky/conky_base.rc"
for hwmon in /sys/class/hwmon/*; do
	[[ -f "$hwmon/name" && "$(cat $hwmon/name)"=="k10temp" ]] && A=${hwmon: -1}
	(( B=1/(A+1) ))
done

sed -i '/^$alignc${template6/{h;s/^.*\(gpu.*$\)/\1/;s/\(\(hwmon\|template5\)\\\) '$A'/\1 '$B'/g;x;s/\(^.*\)gpu.*$/\1/;s/^.*\(gpu,*$\)/\1/;s/\(\(hwmon\|template5\)\\\) '$B'/\1 '$A'/g;G;s/\n//}' "$conkyrc"

pkill conky
conky -c "$conkyrc"

First let me say, Nice work to all here.
I really like Conky, It can be as wild or mild as you want it to be.
I tend to favor the simplistic, not a lot more to it than when I first had it with DSL 2.2, even though I didn't know I could change it back then (not that I don't consider making it fancier sometimes).

Entitled: Watching the Watchers!

When my machine boots up, like most people I find myself on "A DECK" (desktop 1)


What isn't readily apparent is on "C DECK" (desktop 3) I have three other conkys that only appear there.


So I am back to running MORE conkys. Now I'll have to find some nice ones for "B DECK" (desktop 2)

A B & C Decks names are holdovers from a StarTrek conky I did a while back. Seems to fit - "What flight Deck are you on?" Since I'm usually found zooming around in my SR-11 that looks amazingly like an SR-71.
