можно ли как-то сделать, чтобы скрипт срабатывал только когда запущен DeadBeef? А то смотреть на надписи nothing nothing nothing грустно)

So I try this stuff, but when I run start_conky in terminal I got this message: line 4: conky: command not found. Run it on Maverick.

You must have the "conky" and "imagemagick" packages installed on your system. They don't come by default with the OS.

It takes the cover from Deadbeef's cache, that means if you have the cover in Deadbeef so you'll have it in the conky. If there is no cover in deadbeef, so the coverConky.png will be just blank.

i know but i don't have "~/.config/deadbeef/artcache" i've been enable covers from last.fm and albumartwork.org from album artwork plugin in deadbeef... i also have covers in album folders... i don't get it deadbeef doesn't have option in his GUI for cover :D so this plugin in deadbeef is exactly for conky or what... where go this cover's from last.fm and albumartwork.org...

I havent't tested it with last.fm covers. I got the covers in my artits' folders(like "folder.jpg"). Make sure that you've enabled the "Fetch from local folder" checkbox in the Album Artwork plugin settings. Then go to Help - > Help and read how to enable the cover art.
Finally you will have something like this:

i handle the player covers but not for conky... i see when covers appear in ~/.config/deadbeef/artcache and then in ~/.config/conky/conkyCover.png is changed with current cover... but doesn't display in conky... however now i don't know why but my weather script stop working so i think is something from conky... m/b i miss some package or somethink...

Actually there is no need for this, you can run two(or more) conky at one time.
For example, you can open the ~/.config/conky/start_conky.sh file and put the line like this:
conky -c /path/to/your/conky/file
Then run:
~/.config/conky/start_conky.sh

So as i understood, the conky starts, but displays only a blank image with a vinyl, without a cover in it? But if the conkyCover.png changes with the current song, so it have to be in the conky...that's strange. Please try to run in the terminal:
killall conky
~/.config/conky/start_conky.sh
And say if there will be any error output.

Открываете файл start_conky.sh, значение sleep меняете на 11(это кол-во секунд которые ждёт скрипт перед тем как запустить conky) и добавляете этот скрипт в автозагрузку.
