Getting way off topic in the screenshot thread ... so I brought it here ...

Or, maybe, have the conky showing top information separately and smaller and try more gauges for CPU and memory though I'm not sure how CPU gauges would work with CPU scaling so I can see what speed my ores are at and how much CPU is being used (yeah, I know, I'm that much of a freak about things).
Edit: Yes, sorry, I have a composite manager running -- have to have my real transparency on terminals at the least and I like it for windows decorations and occasionally to see through windows forced to the top etc..
Nice wave picture too, by the way.
Why not have conkys in a window? Open when you need them, close after reading.

That weather is my wife's - her colours!
What do you consider your most important - MUST SEE all the time functions. For me that would be:
  1. temperatures,
  2. CPU Usage (you show 8 - what about an "Average?)
  3. Memory usage
  4. HDD partition usage data
  5. Upspeed / Total
  6. Downspeed / Total
  7. Email - example I have 7, my wife none current time in the middle (without the currency converter):


Narrow down your "Must see always" put the rest in boxes that can be opened closed.

Hmmmmm - had a thought - if your on the couch, do you have the keyboard with you? aaaaaaarrggggggghhhhh!!!

The_Wave.jpg (1920x1080)

Can you show your actual conky? I'd like to see what I can do with it.

I gave her that name for stuff here that might end up in screenshots, she likes it, I'm happy, although her name, like mine, have been mentioned at various times/places.. I wouldn't force anything on her she, she accepts or agrees or it doesn't happen - with all things. We're a team!

I ID my conky names with: S11_conkyname.conky and hers with S12_conkyname.conky

Desktop #4 is where my wife does her thing ... it has the conkys she wants the way she wants them:
/media/5/Conky/S12_time_L.conky, /media/5/Conky/S12_time_tm.conky, /media/5/Conky/S12_time_R.conky

They only show up on Desktop #4 the two on the bottom are present on all desktops ...
Her popup weather seen in previous post only shows on whatever desktop she starts it on.

Mine is Desktop #1 and the weather and sys conky only show on that desktop.


The .conky extension is so I can used conky.lang in medit or gedit. It's two years old, I should update it.

There is also nano, vim and Conky.
Not a vim fan but should check out that nano code though.

i didn't mean "force" too literally, just joking really.
it's nice to see how you have set your machine up to be used by a couple...

btw, conky is still the one and only reason i use medit... nano just doesn't cut it, esp. in search/replace functionality...

I know you didn't mean it 'literally'.

Actually only one log-in ... we share it, nothing to hide.
icedove with an account for her and one for out families to use.
claws-mail for me - for my various Linux forums stuff - it would flood the other mailbox.

Only complaint I have is she keeps changing the wallpaper on me ...
- go get a coffee - wallpaper is changed
- go to bathroom - changes again
- raid fridge - OH NO Not again!

If you see a wall with an animal, that's bright, has hearts, and or 'mushy stuff' it's hers. hahahahaha

Well, you made me look.

Just does not trip my trigger like conky does. Too limited. This chromebook is staying chromebook. I have netbooks for linux.

Say what? You post with no bike?


I don't chrome, chromium nor google ... so I don't "Cog" or "System Viewer"

iConky -- no that's not good ... I conky. That's better.

And while conky v1.10 is out I'll be using conky, v1.9 for a while yet.

Nope ... I want the one on the black background.
Like this BMW with a falldown v9000 weather conky and a lua clock.

Of course I've always been fond of "beamers" - we have the same initials only "they" have them in the wrong order.

My American made 4 wheel beamer (Cushman Truckster), http://i68.tinypic.com/152n66v.jpg on the trailer. Engine is a 2 cylinder air cooled boxer engine. Just picked it up and the bicycle (Giant Innova) last week while on a trip. That is the freeway
rest stop with free wifi while I have my personal picnic. All done while hanging with Mom for Thanksgiving holiday.

Posted my conky over here Sector11

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...6/#post5457972

I'll post details on the bicycle after I dial it in and re-grease bearing and lube cables and chains. Over here.

Bro, it is the holidays here. I've been busy traveling. Setting up another trip for my wife this week while I stay at home and baby sit the animals/pets we have.
So give it some time after the 1st of the year.

Yea, but from July to now nothing ... still - life goes on.

Love that little Cushman. Sweet little machine. What year is it?

Holidays will be getting under way here soon, no Thanksgiving so just Christmas and New Years..

I think but am not 100 sure yet it is 1989. Only has about 4,000 hours on the drive train ,(no mileage gauge).
3 speed with reverse with about a 700 cc 2 cylinder air cooled boxer engine that can accept some VW beetle parts even.
It is my Christmas present to me, as well as the Giant Innova bicycle. When I purchased these things.
I learned it was cheaper, (in the long run), to buy the trailer you see in my picture than rent one from Uhaul.
Besides. Uhaul gave me trouble/flak on renting one of their trailers.
The one I wanted could not be taken out of state.
The car trailer wheelbase gutters for the car wheels were wider than the Cushman wheelbase. That could be taken out of state. But expensive counting trailer insurance.
The enclosed trailer won't be rented to transport items with gasoline in them. That also could be taken out of state. But expensive also.
4 day limit on rental also before extra charges kick in.

So I approached my problem from a different angle. For a extra 25 bucks. I get to keep the trailer also.
It is a nice trailer for picking up broke down motorcyclists. So win win all around.
Everything was done ,(Bicycle,Trailer,Cushman), for a price that was reasonable.
Lets just say I kept it under 2 grand ($2,000).
This biker likes his toys.
The Cushman makes a nice addition to the bike collection.

I am not rich. But I know how to have fun with what limited funds I have. I also know how to make money.
That Cushman can be sold by me for a few grand in profits if sold in Texas. Same for the bicycle which I paid $40.00 for.

That's awesome. I had a user back in my BBS days from Missouri who's husband collected Cushmans. He had 6 or 8 of them, can't remember now. He had one like the one on your 'new' trailer. (Great buy!) That'll teach Uhaul. I couldn't believe "can't be taken out of state" like DUH! "OK, can this one go more than 20 blocks?" "That one, can I take it to Canada? I'm really going to Alaska but Canada is in the way." I don't remember restrictions like that from U-Haul back in the 90's in Canada, maybe I'm wrong. And I did drop off's in other provinces. Picked one up in Nova Scotia that had Quebec plates and dropped it off in Ontario, so I get the impression they didn't care.

Enjoy your new toys.

Anyway back on topic ...
Dice for date and time.
Months are always black die and the PM hours are Black Die as well.
Normally they sit in the corners but for this I put them side by side.
Used 'faketime' to show the difference in hours - IE: 25 Dec early in the AM when all good little kids are sound asleep so Santa can come. And then in July 2016 as well ... just because:
Code:
 02 Dec 15 | 13:54:08 ~
    $ faketime '2015-12-25 03:34:15' conky -q -c /media/5/Conky/DiceClock/Dice-Clock.conky
 
 02 Dec 15 | 13:54:19 ~
    $ faketime '2015-12-25 03:34:15' conky -q -c /media/5/Conky/DiceClock/Dice-Date.conky
 
 02 Dec 15 | 13:54:56 ~
    $ faketime '2016-07-15 10:15:00' conky -q -c /media/5/Conky/DiceClock/Dice-Date.conky
 
 02 Dec 15 | 13:58:13 ~
    $ faketime '2016-07-15 10:15:00' conky -q -c /media/5/Conky/DiceClock/Dice-Clock.conky
 
 02 Dec 15 | 13:58:20 ~
    $

also added the time date commands below the dice just for showing here.
Dice-Clock.conky
Dice-Date.conky
or the unedited ones are in the archive with the images needed: dice-time-date.tar.gz

In some parts of the world it is still the old year. What better way to celebrate the last day of the old year here with a new bunch of conkys and an old "motor bike" for rokytnji and Head_on_a_Stick


clean 1920x1080 image - not even sure what make it is, but it's probably older than I am.

Happy New Year people ... stay safe, live like there is no tomorrow.
