Conky-Vision by zagortenay333 Conky-Vision by zagortenay333
My first conky!

-This conky is inspired by these 2 conkys:
-satya164.deviantart.com/art/Co…
-npikill.deviantart.com/art/eOS…

-The weather icons belong to the faenza icon set: tiheum.deviantart.com/art/Faen…

-In action: zagortenay333.deviantart.com/a…

-Wall: wallbase.cc/wallpaper/2392652

-Blurry effect achieved with this amazing app: www.webupd8.org/2012/11/variet…


Update: 25.08.2013
Improved the look of icons.

Update: 05.09.2013
Turns out I had the text-scaling factor set to 0.9 on my machine.I did that cause i like the font that way.What I didnīt realize is that in the process I adjusted the conky to work under that factor while by default the scaling factor is set to 1. XD Hopefully now it will be better!

Update: 03.12.2013
Improved alignment.

Update: 13.04.2014
Improved the code of the conky.

I have Lubuntu 14.4 end Conky Seamod manager and your theme, but I don't understand how to autostart your theme on startup.

So I wanted to change the colors of the icons a bit more dynamically. Using imagemagick, I was able to accomplish this on the fly.
Simpy "sudo apt-get install imagemagick"; then change your icon lines to use the following syntax: github.com/erronjason/dotfiles…
Where #C7692C is the color you want it to be.

Is there any reason why conky disappears after intial boot (about 5 secs) and has to be restarted from the terminal? Its set to run in startup settings.

Did you install curl?

zhukoz Featured By Owner Jul 31, 2014
Hey thanks for the fast reply

I thought that curl was installed by the <sudo apt-get install conky-all> command which I used to install conky but it must not have since when I open it from the terminal I get this error message

sh: 1: curl: not found

Plus a whole lot of 'No such file or directory' lines lol


Can you install it after the fact with ok im guessing <sudo apt-get install curl>?

Soz im a very rank newb, thanks for your help!

There is a README file in there specifically saying that you need to install curl via "sudo apt-get install curl".

It seems you are using unity...That is a problematic one regarding the black background.Basically your only hope is to try a program like "feh".Feh will draw the background for your desktop.I donīt know of any other way to fix it for unity.
As for the temps being all wrong, did you put the correct WOEID into the conky?

so, I uninstalled conky, curl and yr conky files when I was having issues. Stumbled upon a solution to the transparency problem, re-downloaded everything and it worked, but even before I implemented the transparency hack, the orientation is all off now. I dunno how to fix this, any ideas? There's all this space in between the icons and the day name etc. Ugh. Thanks in advance; when this is calibrated properly it looks so great!

Disregard that! I'm read through the other comments and it led me to playing around with the .rc file alignment settings. Trial by error but I'm getting there. Two questions though, how to I get the time to display in a 12 hour AM/PM clock and how can I change the temp for C to F? Thanks again, beautiful work!

When I save the file, it pops up at the top left with a border and stays on top of all windows, pushing everything to the side around it. Why is this?

It literally consumes up nearly half my screen. Looking at the config file confuses a noob like me Bucktooth . Can you help me adjust the font-size and the position of the theme please Painter ? Thanks!
Reply
:iconzagortenay333:
zagortenay333 Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2014  Hobbyist Interface Designer
The position is adjusted with "gap_x" and "gap_y".
To change the size of the font search for "raleway".In the config it will highlight all the places this name was used.You will find that next to is written "size=".Change that number to change the font size of that line.The biggest font is the clock, and it has "size=100".
Keep in mind that changing the font size will dramatically affect the vertical alignment.So you will then have to use the "${voffset}" and move the various lines up/down until they are aligned.

It's my current conky conf, simple, beautiful. Only one question

How can align this setup since "alignment bottom_right" doesnt work? in fact, why it doesnt work? or is just me

"own window type dock" was the problem, this disable the "alignment"

Yes when the window type is set to dock alignment doesnīt work.

You have to copy both files, .conkyrc and .conky_weathers_icon to your /home folder
