I think teh gethostname err
or is a result of the gmail lookup.


^The above is an error which occurs if you dont have hddtemp installed or lm-sensors installed. Make sure you follow the guide step by step otherwise it will not work. That said I can't confuirm the abvoe cause right now IM on a Windows box. Post your questions here with the actual errors and I will see what I can do. I rarely check this thread so if I appear inactive just post it at mysite and I'll respond to you wherever :).

This failure really gives me the willies. I absolutely don't have any idea what I could do to debug it, but would like to run this fantastic feature.

Can anybody help or do you have a tutorial-link?
The problematic message is (see posting above):
"gethostbyname: Unknown host"

I had 2 errors that were similar to this, this one was followed by a localhost error. So assuming you are not getting that, I think teh gethostname error is a result of the gmail lookup.

So I would remove that from your conky as a first step and see if that gets thigns working for you. If it does, that's your problem - there are lots of little gmail scripts you can 'borrow' out there for conky, just play until you find one that works - basically, its the icon that kewl, so you can swap out something that doesn't work for something that does.

I had to do that with the i2c commands (did not work for me, but another script did) as well as the HDD temperture - I had to call it directly - the local host error did not work.

Hope that helps you troubleshoot. Took me a while to get this script working and had some great assistance from 'the void', but its humming like a charm now.

okay, I deleted the gmail, so the gethostname-failure is absent and cronky works. but i've still a problem with the symbols. even though i installed the 4 fonts, and added the graphic lines to the head of the .cronkyc file, the normal vernada font appears.
any hints how to solve this?

thank you very much as far.

hi, conky is a really great feature!
I installed it following your discriptions, but when I start conky I get this failure message:
______________________________
linux:~$ conky
Conky: desktop window (12002e7) is subwindow of root window (55)
Conky: window type - override
Conky: drawing to created window (6400001)
Conky: drawing to double buffer
gethostbyname: Unknown host
______________________________

I NEED SOME HELP, ESPECIALLY CONCERNING THE LAST LINE host.
DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA WHAT'S CONFIGURED WRONG?

Just in case you need it I have added my Conky configuration file to the above link given. You can download it and check if ti solves the problem. Pleaser note that I don't check email using conky so that might be the reason why I don't get the same error. If it still doesn't help let me know then I must have changed something in the scripts and will check and find out.

how to change the weather to show the weather indicator for your own country? the weather here is hot and humid but my conky shows -1 degree celcius. that's misleading. :-)

Check this out, it shows how:

But I still cannot get this working, either my localhsot is getting a connection refused, or gethostbyname is failing - hitting both errors.

This is one of the coolest conky setups I've ever seen, but I've been fiddling for a little over an hour now, and I can't figure out how to get it working!

I am admittingly a little bit of a new user, but I am very confused. anybody know of a slightly clearer howto?

nice job luc!

@iDont, search this code "${pop3_unseen adres.pop3 login password -i 600}" and delete.

Hello,
First of all, I really like your Conky configuration.

Now I got a problem: I've downloaded all fonts you mentioned and placed them in ~/.fonts. When I start Conky I get to see this:

Conky: desktop window (10000b5) is subwindow of root window (187)
Conky: drawing to desktop window
Conky: drawing to single buffer
Conky: can't load font 'weather:size=42'
Conky: can't load font 'weather:size=42'
Conky: can't load font 'weather:size=28'

I googled a bit and found that I may need to compile Conky with XFT support enabled (which apparently wasn't in the repo version). So I compiled it, installed it and still got the same error. Later I found that i may need to install XFSTT, so I tried this but I still got this font problem. What should I do?

btw, when I remove the weather part of .conkyrc I get "can't load font" errors for all other fonts.

Thanks in advance and keep up the good work!
