i've tried doing it within lua. i've started with this:

can u help me please?

The most accurate way to do a countdown timer is to convert the time of the event you are counting down to and the current time into seconds since an arbitrary time in the past.
Most programing languages use seconds since Epoch as this arbitrary time.

Then you subtract the current time from the event time to get the number of seconds until the event.
You then convert the seconds until the event back into hours and minutes for display in conky.

You can get the current time in seconds since epoch and convert a date and time to seconds since epoch by using the os.time() function in Lua.

I don't have any examples of the Lua for that on hand right now but I could make one if you need it.

Hey PackRat...

How about a nice little clock to go with your conky on the top left?
I think it would look nice with that conky, just an opinion.

The most accurate way to do a countdown timer is to convert the time of the event you are counting down to and the current time into seconds since an arbitrary time in the past.
Most programing languages use seconds since Epoch as this arbitrary time.

Then you subtract the current time from the event time to get the number of seconds until the event.
You then convert the seconds until the event back into hours and minutes for display in conky.

You can get the current time in seconds since epoch and convert a date and time to seconds since epoch by using the os.time() function in Lua.

I don't have any examples of the Lua for that on hand right now but I could make one if you need it.

Here you have:

#!/usr/bin/env lua
time_event=os.time({year=2012, month=12, day=21, hour=11, min=11, sec=0})   --Mayan "End of the World"
time_current=os.time()   --current time
tcount=time_event-time_current
tcY=tonumber(os.date("%Y", tcount))-1970
tcM=tonumber(os.date("%m", tcount))-1
tcD=tonumber(os.date("%d", tcount))-1
tch=tonumber(os.date("%H", tcount))
tcm=tonumber(os.date("%M", tcount))
tcs=tonumber(os.date("%S", tcount))
dateS=string.format("Years: %4i     ", tcY)
dateS=string.format("%sMonths: %2i     ", dateS, tcM)
dateS=string.format("%sDays: %2i     ", dateS, tcD)
dateS=string.format("%sHours: %2i     ", dateS, tch)

Re: Conky v1.9 Thread

Hi ! Thanks for this beautiful and simple clock.
I'm trying to make a conky DeadBeef to display music and covers in conky. At the moment there are text infos artists displayed in lua with a bar progression lua too.I'd like to have something wich look like this one : musicsphere
But I'm using a bash script to get and "spherised the covers"  I would use the ring lua of progression around the cover but I don't know how make it work...
I'm here at the moment:
sphremusic
Little Help ?

Re: Conky v1.9 Thread

What do you think :
To use the circle writing script lua from Mr Peachy and display time artist and album infos around the cover-sphere-artist ?

The answer is that I'm crazy ... lol

Hey all - Very very new to conky so I do apologise in advance if I make stupid mistakes.

I found this conky script to show a stack of photos on the desktop (http://fav.me/d2iz14r)
But when I run it in terminal I am getting
"Conky: invalid configuration file 'home/ca/.conky/conkySlideshow'"

Below is a copy of what's in conkySlideshow - Is there anything you can notice that would be causing it not to work?

'home/ca/.conky/conkySlideshow' is not a valid path since it does not start with a / so you are passing a bad value to the "-c" option when you start conky.
You likely want to start it with this command.

conky -c /home/ca/.conky/conkySlideshow

conky -c /home/ca/.conky/conkySlideshow

Ah many thanks! Damn I feel stupid tongue What's worse is I had two versions of conkyStart, one in my home folder and one in home/bin - Every time I was running what I thought was the corrected file it kept displaying the previous error...  But thanks smile

It's giving me different errors now but at least it's a start, I'll give it shot at sorting it out myself before asking for help again.

This community rocks!

UPDATE: Got it all working now, thanks arclance! smile

There is a certain How To floating around these forums that does the spheres ... and conky and lua and deadbeef and 17 other music apps...  That first zynga image is a creation from that How To.

@VastOne
Hi;
Yes I know, the thing I wanted was to make it work with lua and bash.I only need the deadbeef conky for that.I got an quite old machine and then it's use few ram and cpu.
That's now easier to configurate, because I'm bad in writing line codes...I've seen the how to but I think I did not all undestood.(my technical English)
Thanks for your works, great what you made for us in the how-to

dk75 posted a example that you could take a look at if you want to try to work on it yourself until then.
His example did not have the exact output format you wanted but it might be enough to get you started.

Try this. Notation at top of lua as to how and where to use it.

--[[Background originally by londonali1010 (2009)
    ability to set any size for background mrpeachy 2011
    ability to set variables for bg in conkyrc dk75

  the change is that if you set width and/or height to 0
  then it assumes the width and/or height of the conky window

so:

Above and After TEXT  (requires a composite manager or it blinks!)

 lua_load ~/wea_conky/draw_bg.lua
 TEXT
 ${lua conky_draw_bg 10 0 0 0 0 0x000000 0.4}

OR Both above TEXT (no composite manager required - no blinking!)

 lua_load ~/wea_conky/draw_bg.lua
 lua_draw_hook_pre draw_bg 10 0 0 0 0 0x000000 0.5
 TEXT

Note
${lua conky_draw_bg 20 0 0 0 0 0x000000 0.4}
  See below:        1  2 3 4 5 6        7

${lua conky_draw_bg corner_radius x_position y_position width height color alpha}

covers the whole window and will change if you change the minimum_size setting

1 = 20             corner_radius
2 = 0             x_position
3 = 0             y_position
3 = 0             width
5 = 0             height
