Show me your Conky setup

I'd like to see your conky setup to get ideas on how to "pimp it up", as I'm using the standard setup :slight_smile:

Move to home folder and enter .config and again move into .conky there you can see

Sorry, but I forgot to remove my IP in the earlier post, so I had to take it down.

Here's the full desktop (still not finished personalising conky, though :sweat_smile:)

I thought I would toss a conky or 2 in here - the first is a representative one that I've had (read refined) for years - and the second is a 'proof of concept' (read - a quicky) weather display - that doesn't use any tricky libraries to operate (not even lua!).


and number 2

I am happy to share code snippets from either where practical ( the first one uses a lot of lua from a specialist library you would need to install to make use of) - and I could post the entire code from the second one if anyone is interested - but it does involve a bit of setup too (a directory of images, a couple of 5-line scripts) so only if you actually want it to build from! Let me know...

Whwoa... that Conky is intense.

Well - it keeps getting 'refined' as we go - and it has to fill a 2160 px vertical screen! The middle section changes most - has been clocks, weather, news scrollers, graphs - whatever crosses my mind!

As I mentioned, any item I have that someone wants to see how it works - it's available. Only a problem if it calls a lua library you don't have... :grin:

These are very impressive! I would love to see what that file looks like!

You're after the weather one, right? What resolution do you use (I have it for my 3840x2160 - and probably for 1920x1080 as well. It requires a 'key' from openweathermap.com (free) so you need that before it will work...

that's the one :wink:

4K or HD only? Can package it up either way - though on-screen positioning will be on you :grin: Let me know...

HD my laptop is 1900x1080
