    LOL, next he'll be asking you to say 5 hail marys and 3 our fathers.



    In my first post, on the right hand side of my screen, there is a program that tells me what my CPU usage, CPU temp, how much RAM is being used etc,etc. That is conky.
    I do not respond to private messages asking for Linux help, Please keep it on the forums only.
    All new users please read this.** Forum FAQS. ** Adopt an unanswered post.

    I'd rather be lost at the lake than found at home.

    I do the same (CPU, RAM and Network) with screenlets
    What do we want?
    Time machines!

    When do we want 'em?
    Doesn't really matter does it!?

    On my Icewm and Fluxbox Desktops Elija it is easier to run and configure Conky than to try and install Desklets. So on a lighter weight Desktop Enviornment it just makes more sense to run Conky. That is why I use and run Conky.

    I'm not dissing it Roky, I now know what it is and it turns out I'm already doing it but differently I've configured screenlets on Gnome and XFCE but I can easily see that the lighter the environment the harder it would be to configure. Without making it *ahem* unlight *ahem* that is!!

    It's been a couple of years since I last ran conky, but I liked it very much and usually ran it with any of the lightweight window managers, but I've been back to KDE and Gnome for the last couple of years and use their system monitor applications.

    That said, here's a screeny (you'll have to click several times to get to full resolution) of my old conky setup, along with the rc file, although I figure the rc file would no longer work properly with all the changes that have likely occurred during the last couple of years:



    Code:
    # Conky configuration
    #
    # set to yes if you want Conky to be forked in the background
    background no
    
    # Use Xft?
    use_xft yes
    
    # Set conky on the bottom of all other applications
    own_window_hints below
    
    # Xft font when Xft is enabled
    xftfont Bitstream Vera Sans Mono:size=8
    
    # Text alpha when using Xft
    xftalpha 0.8
    
    # mail spool
    mail_spool $MAIL
    
    # Update interval in seconds
    update_interval 2
    
    # This is the number of times Conky will update before quitting.
    # Set to zero to run forever.
    total_run_times 0
    
    # Create own window instead of using desktop (required in nautilus)
    own_window no
    
    # Use pseudo transparency with own_window?
    own_window_transparent yes
    
    # If own_window_transparent is set to no, you can set the background colour here
    own_window_colour hotpink
    
    # Use double buffering (reduces flicker, may not work for everyone)
    double_buffer yes
    
    # Minimum size of text area
    minimum_size 110 2
    
    # Draw shades?
    draw_shades yes
    
    # Draw outlines?
    draw_outline no
    
    # Draw borders around text
    draw_borders no
    
    # Stippled borders?
    stippled_borders 6
    
    # border margins
    border_margin 1
    
    # border width
    border_width 1
    
    # Default colors and also border colors
    default_color white
    default_shade_color black
    default_outline_color black
    
    # Text alignment, other possible values are commented
    #alignment top_left
    #alignment top_right
    #alignment bottom_left
    alignment bottom_right
    #alignment none
    
    # Gap between borders of screen and text
    # same thing as passing -x at command line
    gap_x 12
    gap_y 4
    
    # Subtract file system buffers from used memory?
    no_buffers yes
    
    # set to yes if you want all text to be in uppercase
    uppercase no
    
    # number of cpu samples to average
    # set to 1 to disable averaging
    cpu_avg_samples 2
    
    # number of net samples to average
    # set to 1 to disable averaging
    net_avg_samples 2
    
    # Force UTF8? note that UTF8 support required XFT
    override_utf8_locale no
    
    # Add spaces to keep things from moving about?  This only affects certain objects.
    use_spacer no
    
    # stuff after 'TEXT' will be formatted on screen
    
    TEXT
    
    ${color grey}|   ${color grey}cpu:  ${color #ffffff}$cpu%   ${color grey}|   ${color grey}ram:  ${color #ffffff}$memperc%   ${color grey}|   ${color grey}swap:  ${color #ffffff}$swapperc%   ${color grey}|   ${color grey}processes:  ${color #ffffff}$processes   ${color grey}|   ${color grey}running:  ${color #ffffff}$running_processes   ${color grey}|   ${color grey}eth0 down:  ${color #ffffff}${downspeed eth0} ${color grey}k/s   ${color grey}|   ${color grey}eth0 up:  ${color #ffffff}${upspeed eth0} ${color grey}k/s   ${color grey}|   ${color grey}/: ${color #ffffff}${fs_free_perc /}% ${color grey}free   ${color grey}|   ${color grey}/home: ${color #ffffff}${fs_free_perc /home}% ${color grey}free   ${color grey}|   ${color #ffffff}${time %a}  ${color grey}${time %b %d}  ${color #ffffff}${time %l:%M}   ${color grey}|${offset 30}
    As can be seen, I preferred a conky that went all the way across the screen rather than all be clumped into one small area, and I had the window manager set so that no window would ever cover up any of the conky stats.

    I know Elija. I am having fun watching you and segfault do the dance on a friday. Very enternaining.

    Here TBob is my VIRGIN conky.rc on a fresh install of AntiX 8.2 on a 8 gig External SDHC flash drive for my Asus EEEpc 900 that I wanted to dual boot with Xandros. I even wrote a How To on How I did it with Screenshots. (Takes a bow)

    Here TBob is my VIRGIN conky.rc on a fresh install of AntiX 8.2 on a 8 gig External SDHC flash drive for my Asus EEEpc 900 that I wanted to dual boot with Xandros. I even wrote a How To on How I did it with Screenshots. (Takes a bow)
    Looks good roky, I haven't had time to check this one out yet, I will later this evening.
    Thanks guys.

    That's ok, I am finding a lot of conkyrc files that do not work for me at all, even after editing them.
