conky conkyBar / launchpad V2.0 by N00by4Ever conky conkyBar / launchpad V2.0 by N00by4Ever
ConkyBar - V2.0
I've tested this running an up-to-date linux arch 64bit installation but it should work on other
distro's too. It uses nothing specific for linux arch.

Colors (for color0 + lua files)
Arch 1793d0 (blue)
Mint 77B753 (green)
Ubuntu dd4814 (orange)
Debian d70a53 (red)

Installation steps:
1) Put the folder .conkyconfig in your home folder.
2) Make sure your conky version stupport lua and nvidia (arch: conky-lua-nv)
3) Make sure you've got all the dependencies (hddtemp, iostat, ...) and they are running (also on startup)
4) Make conky_start (and all files in /lua and /scripts) executable.
5) Add conky_start to your startup programs
6) Make sure you've installed the fonts in /fonts
7) Edit the system specific setting, for example in conky_network change it to your wifi/eth interface

(you can ignore the debug folder)

Known bugs
- Pauze banshee -> wrong current position value -> bug in banshee --query-position -> I can't solve it
- The hdd graph (ring) does have a blank space in the beginning
- The outlinement is not perfect
- Seconds uptime are 1sec off

-V2.0 general improvements, updated images, improved allignment, code cleanup, ...
-V1.0 initial commit

Look based on: Conky Launchpad -…
Thanks to crunchbang forums -…
Icons - forgot sorry
Banshee implementation - kaivalagi  -…

HI ! This conky theme is pretty awesome ! And it's exactly what I need for my OpenSUSE Desktop !

It works perfectly, except for the LUA graphes =/ the one for the HDD use and the one for the network traffic.

Conky return an error message : "function conky_main_graph execution failed: attempt to call a nil value" and "function conky_main execution failed: attempt to call a nil value"

I also noticed that if the conky_window variable was set to "nil" in the aforementioned functions, conky had to end the if statement.

So here is my question : where is set the value of "conky_window" ?

Awesome work! I love having this on my desktop. I do have one question: How do you get 3 or more Lua scripts to run at once? I can only run one lua_draw_hook_pre and one lua_draw_hook_post.

Thanks for putting this together and releasing it!

It's good looking conky configuration, but it is needed a lot of time to set for other resolution (actual is 1900 px). May be some instruction how to set lower resolution (like 1366 px)?
N00by4Ever Featured By Owner Mar 25, 2014
i'm afraid it's not really made (out of the box) for lower resolutions. You will have to cut off the background image and manually adjudge the positions of the different conky files.

I'm also not sure conky is really fit for dynamically adjudging for window resolution, it would need some if else structure logic (on smaller screens you will probably not be able to fit everything).

I'm glad you like the look :)

Sweet, thanks alot mate!
One question, how do you get them transparent?
"own_window_transparent yes" didnt do the trick..

Again thanks for an awesom conf.

On ubuntu like systems this setup should work; if you're running an linux distro based on another version you should ask it in their forums or on crunchbang because it can be different depending on your system

Excellent conky theme! Just thought I'd make a few notes..

The following is required to make it look right ->

iostat (part of sysstat package) - curl - GE Inspira font… - Monofur font…

There was one more thing I needed to do to get it working flawless, but I forget now... Anyway, all should be happy with those things installed.

Throwing a screen shot up to show mine :D…
N00by4Ever Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2013
Glad, you like it and nice screenshot!
(btw the font GE Inspira should be in the .conkyconfig folder under fonts)

I switched to CrunchBang and further customized it...

OpenBox is doing some odd stuff to Conkys windows... its dropping a shadow now?
