I have a new install of Ubuntu desktop on an old IBM T43 laptop, and I am trying to get conky up and running. I've copied one of the sample .conkyrc files from the conky sourceforge page and pasted it into ~/.conkyrc . However, I've rebooted conky several times (killall -SIGUSR1 conky) and it still uses the default configuration in: /etc/conky/conky.conf .
Leave it to Dura to post this ! True ... and funny, funny cuz true (imo anyway.) Agree conky addiction is a potentially serious problem. Esp for conky grand masters like Sector ... he neither knows, nor cares that conky has become addictive. One of the few things about gnu/nix was able to pry meself away from. ooooOOOoo if only x about my conky would but appear 1/47 inch to da right !!!!
Hey VastOne!Thanks for all the work you put into this, but i have some truble getting it to work too..I allready fixed the symlink thing but now all i can get is "unknown" information in any of the fields added to my conkyi dont think this is because i added it into my already exsisting conky, is it?
If I turn on xcompmgr, Terminator windows don't cast drop-shadows for some reason. So I tried cairo-compmgr and Terminator looks fine, but suddenly conky is always on top, even with own_window_hints below. So I changed conky's own_window_type to desktop, and conky looks fine but right-clicking on it now doesn't show the openbox menu.
