I present Harmattan the weather conky  :)

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:…

Hey again! ;)

Quick question- I use the transparent theme and love it. If I want to use a desktop background that's can I change all the text color on the conky to black or another color? Thanks! I tried playing a round with the .conkrc but couldn't figure it out.

edit: spelling

In the conky file there is a section for default colors. Color 1, 2, 3, etc.. These colors are then only linked in the bottom section of the conky. You´ll notice that in the transparent theme all colors are set to FFFFFF.
gastronomin Featured By Owner Oct 16, 2014
Hm, I see near the top "graphical settings" all colors are set to FFFFFF. Then I see the color1 color2, color3 populated throughout the conky, but I've changed those numbers from -10 to 75 and no changes happen. Am I missing something? Isn't the bottom section of the conky just for the images of the forecast? Sorry, I'm still learning!

What did you change from -10 to 75? All you need to do iis to manipulate the hex values in the graphical settings. FFFFFF is the hex value for white. Change it to 000000 to make color1 black.

Hi, it looks nearly perfect but some of the text is out of alignment for me. How can I fix this? (Note CPU text/monitor especially, but also other things are not perfectly in place.)Thanks!

Who knows. It seems to be an issue with conky. I generally find that arch users and unity users have it misaligned most often. You have no other choice but to edit it yourself. :/

Hi, what's the wallapaper used in the pic? txh in advance! :)
zagortenay333 Featured By Owner Sep 21, 2014  Hobbyist Interface Designer
You can find it in my zukitwo-dark theme in the background-assets folder: texture 1-2-3. It´s a tileable pattern.

thank you! ;)

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!
