This conky was inspired by various awesome weather widgets from deviantART and other sites.
Also, the awesome flatts rainmeter skin served as an inspiration for one of the  display modes:…


The font used for the preview is the amazing Infinity font:…

The modified weather icons belong to the faenza icon set:…

You can find it in my zukitwo-dark theme in the background-assets folder: texture 1-2-3. It´s a tileable pattern.

Hey! Awesome work on this! I was trying to figure out how to remove the date and time from this conky, leaving everything else the same but when I try and comment it out or remove that section from the rc file it throws off alignment for the rest of the conky... any ideas?? Thanks!
zagortenay333 Featured By Owner 4 days ago  Hobbyist Interface Designer
Conky is "line sensitive". If you comment a line out(equal to removing it), then everything beneath that line will go up a line. Similarly, if you add a line, everything beneath it will be pushed down. Also, the "voffset" works in such a way that it looks at the line above it, not the top of the conky. If the line above it disappears, voffset will look at the next thing above it, moving everything up.
In order to fix this, find the first "voffset" that comes after the lines you commented out and increase it until the rest of the conky comes back down into the proper position,  or do it the hardcore way and re-adjust the position of the images.  :)

Awesome, this worked. Thanks so much! One quick question :) Now I still have the thing line that divides the sections above the weather that was below the time/date, how can I remover this as well?

Thanks again, this conky is great!

I guess you figured it out? You just need to remove the relevant images.

Apologies if someone already asked this, but what is your current theme for the rest of your desktop (icons, windows, fonts, etc)? I like the way you think :) Great conky!
