Based on Conky-colours by helmuthdu
http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/CONKY-colors?content=92328

I like Conky-colors, but:
- I don't want to register to Wearther.com
- I don't need mail notifications on my desktop
- Some important things are missing
- To many modifications

So, I modify Conky-colors script to fit my needs.
- I added nVidia card section to provide informations about GPU temperature
- Weather still available with Accuweather service (it's just a feed)
- I added HD temperature line
- Modified clock fonts
- Calendar under desktop clock
- Just english version
- You don't need to modify practically anything
Very simple!!


You can install/uninstall everything with a zenity script.
A little GUI program will help you to change between different conky flavours.





HDD Temperature requires root access. For how to check here:

For WEATHER use everything after the loccode=
Example: If you live in Toronto, Canada
http://www.accuweather.com/world-index-forecast.asp?partner=accuweather&traveler=0&loccode=NAM|CA|ON|TORONTO
your code will be NAM|CA|ON|TORONTO
Put the code in your configuration file.

After installing i noticed that the dark theme would not start.
I looked into the folder and saw that the dark theme had only chmod 600 (rw for root)

YOU WILL NEED TO CHANGE THE PERMISSONS OF CONKY_DARK TO START IT!

#sudo chmod 744 ~/.Conky/conky_dark

One comment concerning nvidia gpu temp. conky_dark (and probably light) have a small error and doesnt display the gpu temp.

Just edit conky file, go to line 110 and remove the dot before the file nvidia-gpu.sh

Change from:
Quote:${voffset 6}${font PizzaDude Bullets:size=12}9${font} GPU temp: ${alignr}${execi 300 ~/scripts/.nvidia-gpu.sh}

To:
Quote:${voffset 6}${font PizzaDude Bullets:size=12}9${font} GPU temp: ${alignr}${execi 300 ~/scripts/nvidia-gpu.sh}

Great work, I like it, because I used Conky Colors long time ago, but I was bored of editing the scripts. Now, I found this version, and I think it's great.

But I want to ask you about the colors, because I want Conky in green, just like the picture up there. ¿Is there any solution for this?

Thanks, and sorry about my bad English. Greetings!

this feature is not yet implemented...
unless you are going to build your own conky...
I think I can release a new version to add this feature
...so stay tuned for new updates!

1. Desktop icon doesn't appear?
2. With "panel", you mean "gnome-panel" or some other panel?

There may be a problem with your system...


Please post your details (with screenshots if possible) here, I'll be ready to help.

I must say, great work! Just a few modifications and it worked great for me (temperature, fan speed, etc.).

Just one thing, it'd be better if you kept consistency between the space used and space available (for / showed how much is used and for /home how much space is available - confusing at first).

Hi, thanks for this great conky config.
Everything is working great except the weather plugin. When i run cflav i get this error: "/home/_a__/.scripts/weather.sh: 17: curl: not found" and it doesn't fetch the weather information.

Anyone could help?

You have to install "curl" package for your distribution (e.g For Ubuntu, do: sudo apt-get install curl)

Do you have single or dual core CPU?

Thanks. I have the weather working now, but how do I get the sunny/cloudy/snowing icon?

I got the harddrive thing working.

Thanks for this script, it's great. Only suggestions are that you provide a single-core version (I had to do just a tiny bit of digging in the conkyrc to get it to not think I had two cores. It wouldn't start until I did it like that), that you link to all the fonts used (again, no great trouble to find them, but it would just be easier).

Is there a way to disable the popup asking for light or dark on startup?

Ok, suggestions noted.

There are no icons available for the Weather script because all desktop informations are provided by Accuweather in text format. We are not talking about Weather.com, this feed shows only minimal informations regarding current weather conditions.
Remember, I wrote this script to be as simple as possible.

So I live in the Weather Network's CAON0349 (I don't know if this applies or everything or what...), and I used that as the loc code in the conkyrc, but I can't get the weather applet or the harddrive's degrees (C) working.

Any help?

Identical conkyrc as this original with some tweaks (read: removals)

"You don't need to modify practically nothing" should be "You don't need to modify practically anything."

Really nice conky, by the way. :)
