Conky-All 1.8 now in the Statler repo (updated)

Hopefully these new packages will not break too many conky set-ups! smile

Great news for Conky hackers!! smile

Hmm...

I think i tried that one (amd64 though) prior to compiling 1.8.0_rc2 on my desktop... hmm

On the other hand, the i386 deb install perfectly on my EeePC...

Re: Conky-All 1.8 now in the Statler repo (updated)

wow...thanks... I have my conky back although there are 2 things not working:

1. hddtemp:
   
         I install it, didn't allow it to run as deamon, and try to make it accessible with user rights with this: sudo chmod u+s /usr/sbin/hddtemp but it still needs a sudo to run... any thoughts on how can it be run without sudo?

2. I don't get the callendar view with this code:
         

${execpi 60 DJS=`date +%_d`; cal -m | sed '1,2d' | sed '/./!d' | sed 's/$/ /' | fold -w 21 | sed -n '/^.\{21\}/p' | sed 's/^/ /' | sed /" $DJS "/s/" $DJS "/" "'${color red}'"$DJS"'${color}'" "/} $font

Back home I tested wireless network and conky misread the wlan0 signal... wicd says ~80% and conky returns ~50%

Great news... I replaced the "ubuntu" one with the "statler" and it works as before... which means that the hddtemp isn't working, as well as the ubuntu-way of showing a callendar with date command...

I think we'll all need to read up on the 1.8 version of Conky as there have been a few changes by the looks of things.

Just to add, I have Kavalagi's Lucid repo on mine and conkyforecast etc all work fine. I haven't tried hddtemp, but my calendar is ok.

hddtemp is back on conky; I needed to sudo dpkg-reconfigure hddtem and let it run from user accounts. I had forgotten this step!

I just cobbled this together:

${execpi 60 DJS=`date +%_d`; cal | sed '1,2d' | sed '/./!d' | sed 's/$/ /' | fold -w 21 | sed 's/^/ /' | sed /" $DJS "/s/" $DJS "/" "'${color red}'"$DJS"'${color}'" "/}

Maybe it'll work for you. I'm not all that great with sed so... tongue

I had to edit /usr/bin/conkyForecast and change "python2" to "python" to get my weather display working again.
