Font is League Gothic

When Conky refreshes, it prints on top of itself

my goto :trident:


If I am in Manjaro XFCE, I just need to install conky and use your config? or do I need to make some change?
My resolution of monitor is 1920*1080 btw


no changes needed, use it on xfce.


thks, really beautiful conky


After I install conky, it works, but when I reboot the system, my conky will show like this;

how can I fix it


You have to make the following changes too. Common sense.

  1. install the ‘dungeon’ font i provided the link to.

  2. Change the hard drive section with your own mount points
    ${voffset 10}Root$alignr$color2${fs_used /}/${fs_size /}$color ${fs_bar 3,200 /} Home$alignr$color2${fs_used /home}/${fs_size /home}$color ${fs_bar 3,200 /home} myDisk1$alignr$color2${fs_used /mnt/myDisk1}/${fs_size /mnt/myDisk1}$color ${fs_bar 3,200 /mnt/myDisk1} myDisk2$alignr$color2${fs_used /mnt/myDisk2}/${fs_size /mnt/myDisk2}$color ${fs_bar 3,200 /mnt/myDisk2}

  3. Change the network section with your own network devices
    ${voffset 10}E: Down $color2${downspeedf enp7s0}KiB${alignr}${upspeedf enp7s0}KiB$color Up W: Down $color2${downspeedf wlp4s0}KiB${alignr}${upspeedf wlp4s0}KiB$color Up

  4. Finally, change your location code for weather info . Go to
    ${voffset 10}Kolkata (IN)${alignr}${weather VECC weather weather 60},${weather VECC temperature temperature 60}°C

And most importantly, delay your conky by 10 seconds or so. It doesn’t play well with xfdesktop. Startup command is
sh -c "sleep 10s && conky -c $HOME/.conkyrc"


Thks, but for the weather, the link you give to me I can not find any code in that site, my current location is Paris France



it works!!! love u!!!:heart_eyes:

${voffset 10}Paris (FR)${alignr}${weather LFPB weather weather 60},${weather LFPB temperature temperature 60}°C

here in weather, it just shows the temperature, it doesn’t show the weather, is there some thing wrong here?




I noticed here

                    weather - 

                <p>Any relevant weather event (rain, snow,
                etc.). This is not used if you are querying the
       site since this data is aggregated
                into the cloud_cover one</p>

It means I need to change the “weather” to “cloud_cover” right?


Please “reply as linked topic” next time, this thread is only to scrot and gist your conkyrc ( @Orajnam add this line to your post#1 :slight_smile: ) .
If an op could please chop-off from post#5 Conky thread, show your work!
down to #15 and link it to new thread, that’ll be great. @eugen-b @jonathon gratitude in advance.


Okay, I’ll be attention to it next time.
