Description:

PLEASE NOTE: This page is no longer maintained. Please see my DeviantArt page for the maintained version: http://londonali1010.deviantart.com/art/quot-Rings-quot-Meters-for-Conky-141961783

This is a Lua script written with Cairo bindings to display ring meters, just like the CircleMeter adesklet by kurcze. You can customise the size, thickness, placement, colour and transparency of the rings, and rings are available for cpu% (total or you can choose which core), mem%, free space on any partition, and battery percent.

Instructions for customising the rings, and for how to call the script in Conky, are in the script itself.

Please note that Cairo bindings for Lua are only available in Conky 1.7.2.

If you use this script, please leave me a note saying how you've used it!

*** NOTE: I'm having difficulty uploading a screenie of the latest ring script. Please find it here: http://picasaweb.google.com/londonali1010/Screenshots#5389926810218350802 ***

But I'm kinda new to this conky thing, so can you maybe give me a not so detailed instruction in how to install this script?
Thanks!

Well. Your screenshots are very cool but something wrong happen with your "how to", I cant be able to run your scripts.
Specifically I dont know what exactly is the menaning of:
"conkyrc_rings & conkyrc_netrings goes where you want, don't forget to adjust path and username before using"

Best regards

hi, and thx for your kind words :)
the meaning of "..." is: conkyrc's calls lua scripts by their path (/home/arp/scripts/rings.lua in my case), you have to edit all scripts to adjust path of lua scripts in conkyrc(last line before TEXT) and replace the path by yours.
hope i'm clear, if not,mail me on my own page.... here is the londonali1010's place ;) and thanks again for your support :)

Alright, but in your screeenshots (and inside your .zip package) there are three different conkys.
How do you do to make to work all of them simultaneously??

Thanks in advance

with a little script:
[code]#!/bin/sh
#to start/stop zen rings
if pidof conky | grep [0-9] > /dev/null
then
exec killall conky
else

sleep 4s
conky -c ~/scripts/conkyrc_zen1 &
conky -c ~/scripts/conkyrc_zen2 &
conky -c ~/scripts/conkyrc_zen3 &

exit
fi[/code]
you can put it in your autostart or bind it to a speciakey :)

Ah, I should have been clear in the description: it will only work in Conky 1.7.2 or later, with the Cairo option enabled. You can get a copy here: https://launchpad.net/~norsetto/+archive/ppa/+packages

If you still have trouble, let me know :)
