Conky Showcase 2020

The weatherpart is documented - if you are using the openbox version - there is a subfolder of .config/conky named accu_weather which contains a describing the logic behind.

Or you could look at the linked Openbox topic which contains more details on the weather script.

I seem to understand that you’re missing some basic information on what Conky is and what it does?

If yes:

If no, please clarify what your exact question is???


Erm, no, not really! In fact, I tried to get Conky up-and-running on my KDE system (sorry, I forgot to tell you this) without success for the moment!

Yes, I see the good Openbox Topic and I understand: I must placed the original code by a other code for obtain a new conky, that is?!

On KDE, I created a file called .config and inside, I placed a text file with the script written by Meowclown but I’m not a conky user for the moment (maybe is impossible to placed a Conky in KDE, I not know).


No, I speaking of the code use by Fabby but I think to shake the pencils, now ! :smile: Sorry but I not the practice for use the code.


Yes, I see your good topic and I try next this how to next.

So what you need to do is to copy-paste the full code for a full conky.conf in ~/.config/conky/conky.conf:

This is a minimalist config:
conky.config =
  console_bar_fill   = '»',
  console_bar_unfill = ' ',

  alignment = 'top_left',
  background = false,
  border_width = 2,
  cpu_avg_samples = 2,
  -- define Manjaro colours:
  default_color = '#1abc9c',  -- Same HTML as current terminal
  color1 = '#709080',         -- Kakhi
  color2 = '#dca3a3',         -- Salmon
  color3 = '#72d5a3',         -- Light Green
  color4 = '#f0dfaf',         -- Yellow
  color5 = '#7eb2e6',         -- Metal blue
  color6 = '#a45ec1',         -- Light aubergine
  font   = 'NotoMono-Regular:bold:size=8',
  default_outline_color = '#1abc9c',  -- Same HTML as current terminal
  default_shade_color = '#1abc9c',  -- Same HTML as current terminal
  double_buffer = true,
  draw_borders = false,
  draw_graph_borders = true,
  draw_outline = false,
  draw_shades = false,
  extra_newline = false,
  gap_x = 25,
  gap_y = 25,
  minimum_height = 200,
  minimum_width = 200,
  net_avg_samples = 2,
  no_buffers = true,
  out_to_console = false,
  out_to_ncurses = false,
  out_to_stderr = false,
  out_to_x = true,
  own_window = true,
  own_window_class = 'Conky',
  own_window_type = 'normal',
  own_window_transparent = false,
  -- set transparency:
  own_window_argb_visual = true, own_window_argb_value = 100,
  show_graph_range = false,
  show_graph_scale = false,
  stippled_borders = 0,
  update_interval = 2.0,
  uppercase = false,
  use_spacer = 'none',
  use_xft = true,
  -- lua_load = '~/.config/conky/MyFunctions.lua',
  -- lua_draw_hook_post = "main",
conky.text = [[
${color}Info:${color1} ${scroll 32 $nodename $kernel}${alignr}${color} Uptime:${color1} $uptime
${color}RAM Usage:${alignr}Swap Usage:
${color1}${mem}/${memmax} ${membar 5,80}${alignr}${swap}/${swapmax} ${swapbar 5,80}

${color}Processes:${color1} $processes       ${color}Load:${color1} $loadavg
${color}Name                 CPU%   MEM%   PID
${color1} ${top name 1} ${color2} ${top cpu 1} ${top mem 1} ${top pid 1}
${color1} ${top name 2} ${color2} ${top cpu 2} ${top mem 2} ${top pid 2}
${color1} ${top name 3} ${color2} ${top cpu 3} ${top mem 3} ${top pid 3}

… and execute conky in a terminal!

Does that show an error or does it draw a window on your desktop?

If not, provide the error message you’re getting, please?
