I don't understand why you have two conkys? Those plus an analogue clock can fit into one conky.

Some places to start
http://www.webupd8.org/2011/02/try-t...conky-lua.html
http://thepeachyblog.blogspot.com.ar...home-page.html
https://github.com/fxthomas/conky/blob/master/clock.lua

You can even combine them with other things . A Chronograph with weather.

Debian SID / OpenBox / tint2 / Compton

or 4 clocks by mrpeachy:

You can use just one one, or two or three or five or .... and build a full conky under them or put them in the middle of a conky.
The numbers are hours in 24 hour time, suppose I could put the date under GMT (UTC) as well

More clocks and my calendar conky:


If I have misunderstood that it just a work in progress ... I apologize

I have two Conkies, because I want the calendar centred. Including it in the main Conky aligns it to the left, and the calendar is too large for my taste if big enough to match the width of the other Conky.

As for the clock. I have tried a couple analogue clocks, but have not been able to get them to display properly. I get text instead of a clock. So it could be considered a work in progress, until I figure it out. Two of your links have given me an idea. Thanks for them. Perhaps the problem is related to lua. I saw a couple things that might solve the problem.

Simple Netbook conkyrc. Small screen real estate here (9" screen). acpi has a issue with the Battery and I spent a day investigating trying to get more info but hwmon and /sys were dead ends. This is a one of a kind netbook when it comes to hard ware any ways so I can't expect everything from acpi to work (in other words, I am not sweating the small stuff). Just the nature of the beast on this one. Like I said, simple and to the point.

weather here in the desert hardly changes. 100+ F is the norm for summer so I just run a simple weather script I borrowed from Arch Linux' You will need curl and perl installed to run s this .sh file. Make sure in properties it is executable

.weather.sh file

Code:
#!/bin/sh
#AccuWeather (r) RSS weather tool for conky
#
#USAGE: weather.sh <locationcode>
#
#(c) Michael Seiler 2007

METRIC=0 #Should be 0 or 1; 0 for F, 1 for C

if [ -z $1 ]; then
    echo
    echo "USAGE: weather.sh <79772>"
    echo
    exit 0;
fi

curl -s http://rss.accuweather.com/rss/liveweather_rss.asp\?metric\=${METRIC}\&locCode\=$1 | perl -ne 'if (/Currently/) {chomp;/\<title\>Currently: (.*)?\<\/title\>/; print "$1"; }'

Try one of these for your calendar: font used is monofur

Code:
${goto 30}SU MO ${color6}${time %b %Y}${color} FR SA
${goto 30}${color}${execp LAR=`date +%-d`; ncal -bh | sed '2d' | sed -e '1d' -e 's/\<'$LAR'\>/${color6}&${color}/' | sed ':a;N;$!ba;s/\n/\n${goto 30}/g'}


${goto 30}${color}${execp LAR=`date +%-d`; ncal -bh | sed -e '1d' -e 's/\<'$LAR'\>/${color6}&${color}/' | sed ':a;N;$!ba;s/\n/\n${goto 30}/g'}
Top, with two lines, puts the month (short) and year between 'Mo' and 'Fr', using three ${goto xx} commands.
and the bottom one line uses the calendars names and two ${goto xx} commands.



For LUA clocks are you adjusting the rings with the x,y values?

Example:
Code:
-- HOURS
clock_h = {
    {
    name='time',                   arg='%H',                    max_value=12,
    x=110,                         y=80,      -- these set the top, left corner of the "square" the circle is in.
    graph_radius=53,
    graph_thickness=3,
    graph_unit_angle=30,           graph_unit_thickness=30,
    graph_bg_colour=0xffffff,      graph_bg_alpha=0.0,
    graph_fg_colour=0xFFFFFF,      graph_fg_alpha=0.3,
    txt_radius=34,
    txt_weight=1,                  txt_size=10.0,
    txt_fg_colour=0xFFFFFF,        txt_fg_alpha=0.6,
    graduation_radius=53,
    graduation_thickness=6,        graduation_mark_thickness=2,
    graduation_unit_angle=30,
    graduation_fg_colour=0xFFFFFF, graduation_fg_alpha=0.3,
    },

I finally got around to playing with it today. My theory of a lua relationship was completely wrong. It looks like my problems were syntax errors when adding them to the Openbox startup.sh, and in one or two instances, placing rc files in the wrong place. At least for a couple of the clocks. A couple others still want to display text, instead of a clock.

The good news:
I have managed to get one of the clocks to work.

The bad news:
It does not have transparent styles, which is what I want.

So half way there. It should not be much longer before I have the clock of my dreams.

If you are running multiple conkys from he OpenBox startup script you can try what I do and as the very last command in that script run a Start/Stop Conky bash script:

Code:
## Start all Conkys after a slight delay
(sleep 2s && ~/bin/ssc.sh) &

exit
You can see a sample of the ssc.sh at Conky PitStop. I use the short version on the bottom of the page.

Transparency - what composite manager are you running? It's important.

For now I am running multiple Conkies, because it is easier for me to run a clock separately, until I can figure out how to integrate a clock into a single Conky. My first priority is getting a clock I like to display, instead of one or two large letters. It is a combination of what to add, what not to add, where to add it and probably a fount issue. Not being a computer competent, it takes me a while to figure things out. But eventually it will be done. At the moment, I am happy with my progress.

My compositor is Compiz. Has worked fine for everything so far, so unlikely (but not a certainty) a problem.

Thumbs up

How I WILL replace Gkrellm with conky.

Hi, I got tired of gkrellm crashing and sound-scope not working with new systems (worked < 2008)

I've been following a few threads and have come up with something that works, but this is still a WIP.

I've tried some lua scripting for nvidia graphics card monitoring, it did not work well graphically (maybe not the right fonts), so I feel I've regressed to bold statements.

I got some errors in the gui, like the Gpu speed and Gpu temp.

I'm still learning, and have to read the docs.

I'm sorry, I never got a notification of this post.

Clocks are not hard to integrate into conky. Are you looking for a LUA clock?
ie: Londonali1010's Air Clock has a semi transparent outer ring that bends nicely with the background.

Install: lm-sensors, hddtemp.

Do you have nvidia-settings installed?

Read this to get started with getting your temperatures and such working: Using Sensors

AMD 8 core - easy ... CPU % usage:
CPU usage for the 8 CPUs
${cpu cpu1}, ${cpu cpu2}, ${cpu cpu3}, ${cpu cpu4}
${cpu cpu5}, ${cpu cpu6}, ${cpu cpu7}, ${cpu cpu8}

and ${cpu cpu0}% to give you the average usage of the 8.

nvidia commands are available in conky:

${nvidia temp} will give you the CPU temperature - I don't think separate CPU temps are available for Nvidia CPU's.

Quote:
nvidia threshold Nvidia graficcard support for the XNVCtrl library. Each option can be shortened to the least significant part. Temperatures are printed as float, all other values as integer.

threshold - The thresholdtemperature at which the gpu slows down
temp - Gives the gpu current temperature
ambient - Gives current air temperature near GPU case
gpufreq - Gives the current gpu frequency
memfreq - Gives the current mem frequency
imagequality - Which imagequality should be chosen by OpenGL applications
I have an AMD X3:

Hi, thanks for the quick responce.

Yes I have these installed.

I'll post again when I have it changed.....

I've only worked on getting the info, not so much about how it looks (yet). So the layout is borrowed at the moment.

Cheers.

I agree totally: info first layout second

OK, did you run

I have one question,

*solved with a reboot* The way I start and stop conky is to rsync it ...
Code:
# Conky system viewer/
rsync -avh /home/glenn/My_system/backup-sys-default/conky.conf /etc/conky/conky.conf
chown root:root /etc/conky/conky.conf
chmod a+rx /etc/conky/conky.conf
When I tried a decreased font size to 6, that changed the window size too, but when I reverted back to 9 font the window stayed small.

Below here is the original post...

I'd like the window slightly larger, both height and width.

Decreasing the font size helps, but The text becomes too small.

Please find attached png image and conky text.

Update.

I now have most of the details and how to get them sorted.

Next is the Surf report, Brisbane area +-500Km, Australia, which I believe I can do standing on the shoulders of others. :-)
But the surf report will probably need to be in another conky, due to space requirements, atm.

/etc/conky/conky.conf
Code:
use_spacer right

# set to yes if you want tormo to be forked in the background
#background yes

use_xft yes

# Xft font when Xft is enabled
xftfont Bitstream Vera Sans Mono-9
#xftfont Andale Mono-9
#xftfont Clean-9
#xftfont cubicfive10:pixelsize=10
#xftfont squaredance10:pixelsize=14
#xftfont swf!t_v02:pixelsize=12

# Text alpha when using Xft
xftalpha 0.65
