good idea :)

a lot of things to do wih conky, that's why this conkyrc is rather a mean to present the conky.lua

I'm not very satisfied with the "net section", but one could add other rings like here :

Great design.

Maybe only to include conditional network IP address showing (eg. gray inactive "No Address, and white when active).

Here is mine suggestion:

I'm still having error with :
llua_do_call: function conky_main execution failed: attempt to call a nil value

I've got liblua5.1-gnome-0 installed and place the files in the corrent directories.
Or is this only for Ubuntu? Because I see a lot of 'ubuntu' word on the script ( eg: font ubuntu:size 20 )

Thank you

Nevermind.
I figured it out.

This is really nice, and a great job!

But why you would not post the actual instructions, (or even include a "readme" file with "how-to"), is beyond me.

FOr anyone still wondering..

You have to put the ".lua" file into a separate folder named .conky.

and you also have to have a package called
liblua5.1-gnome-0
installed.

This is perfect!
Great job!

Can I be a newb and ask a Q? lol

I have used conky before..
but was walked through it, and have forgotten most of it.

I just need to know..

Where do I put both of the files?
I have copied "conky_orange" to my '.conkyrc' file, and when I start it , it looks ok,

But since I dont know what to do with the second file "conky_orange.lau"
the round "meter circles" are missing from my desktop..

So,
Can you explain it for me,
as easy as possible?
lol

DO I need to have a separate "conky" folder?
or do both the conky_orange files go in the same place?
and if so, how?
thank you.


Sorry for being a noob!

A blank page with the words "not found", or the file download.php, containing simply the words "not found", if I "save link as". Happened yesterday elsewhere on gnome-look, too.

How do I make it auto-start every time I login? I tried to make new startup program 'conky' but all I get after login is the ugly original conky, not this one.

1/ create a shell script :
~/.conky/start.sh
#!/bin/bash
sleep 20
conky -c ./conky/conkyrc_orange


2/ launch in a terminal :
gnome-session-properties

3/ add an entry
name: conky
command: ~/.conky/start.sh

Thanks! It works now. Just a little correction in case someone else following, the script should be like this:
#!/bin/bash
sleep 20
conky -c ~/.conky/conkyrc_orange

And you also need to make the script executable.

This conky theme looks awesome.

If you have the time, it would be great if you could aso write a tutorial on how to make the rings bigger. I was looking at the lua file, but it doesnt look that straight forward.

Cheers!
