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.

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?
