Conky du Hublot (sample_6) by LaGaDesk Conky du Hublot (sample_6) by LaGaDesk
simple conky / lua

Very important: download and install fonts from here [link] and here [link] otherwise it looks really ugly ;)

And it looks not good on all especially too light wallpapers... I suggest walls like in the screenshot. ;)

No support for conky samples / You have to know yourself what you are doing!

Credits and thanks to: `OtisBee for inspiration with this masterpiece: ThaPorthole Dull

and ~nale12 for this excellent work of art: Colors_conky

Thanks to all who have ever developed and improved conky and lua!

Ahhh.. sorry now I see what you mean! After changing wallpaper it takes a few seconds and this frame should no longer visible. Streched wallpapers keep this frame. Better you use wallpapers in resolution of your display.

This worked for me:
${exec feh --bg-scale /home/atlanta/wallpaper.png}
I also changed:
alignment tm
gap_x 30
gap_y 160

Why the hight of frame below clocks is so big? I tried to lower the value of minimum_size but it cuts the clock from the right side. I also tried setting maximum_size height 200 but it doesn't help. It covers my photo frame widgets so I want to make it smaller.
I read man conky but I can't figure it out.

Hm.. whatever you've changed. I'm not sure why it does not work. :?
What distro, conky version and graphic driver do you use?
Maybe there is a problem. Package feh seems to be installed?

alignment is only for the place where it starts.
You could make a screenshot of complete message output in konsole of your conky please.

output from Konsole:
conky
Conky: desktop window (14004cc) is subwindow of root window (15d)
Conky: window type - override
Conky: drawing to created window (0x8c00001)
Conky: drawing to double buffer

Do you use conky-all or just conky?

Look there is some unwanted element which makes the frame. It is spining around.

I use Kubuntu 12.04 conky 1.8.1-6

Okay .. I understand. I'm also using Kubuntu.

1. conky - every line break is a change in size. I do not know how I can change that. :(

2. it is an annoying fact that plasmoids are displayed behind the conky and not before.
Also I can not change, unfortunately. :(

I installed it this way:
rename "conky" in ".conky" and glue in the "home".
I create a folder ".conky" in "home" and inside i paste the file: "clock_ring.lua" orb-1.png, 2.png-orb ....
after launch, from terminal "conky" and the result is this:
- output -
[ilnanny@eeepc ~]$ conky
Conky: /home/ilnanny/.conkyrc: 49: no such configuration: 'lua_load'
Conky: /home/ilnanny/.conkyrc: 50: no such configuration: 'lua_draw_hook_pre'
Conky: desktop window (e00024) is subwindow of root window (ab)
Conky: window type - override
Conky: drawing to created window (0xc00001)
Conky: drawing to double buffer
grep: /home/ilnanny/.kde/share/config/plasma-desktop-appletsrc:File or directory does not exist
sh: feh: command not found

always the case ... and then continues until the close .....:confused:

Would you like to write a mini guide to how to install this wonderful conky?:hump:

:lol: if you do not rename the conky folder only put them in your home dirctory all will be fine. ;)

okay... and you can delete the last line from conkyrc (it is only for KDE)

Okay.. you need to install the fonts I've linked in description. And lua seems not to work in your distribution. What Linux distribution do you use? What a pity. :(

A suggestion, you could put a "00" in the background of the digits, in grey colour with a low alpha transparency. This give a very nice aesthetic effect over the conky ;)
