Re: Conky v1.9 Thread

@VastOne Thanks for the Link! I think that I might create a new icon theme (something that I have been wanting to do). Anyway I think that I have pulled us off topic big_smile

Re: Conky v1.9 Thread

Hi community,

There are two config-files: /etc/conky/conky.conf and /home/user/.conkyrc

Which one is relevant or dominant?

Just installed background wallpaper. Unfortunately I am not able to change text colour.

What to do?

Thank you for your attention,

best regards,

Re: Conky v1.9 Thread

Welcome to #! hans1967, enjoy the baklava!

/home/user/.conkyrc is the conky config file needed for anything, but you can use multiple conky configurations

To create a second config file, you could name it .conkyhansrc and then load it

conky -c .conkyhansrc

-c is telling conky to use a configuration file

Re: Conky v1.9 Thread

Welcome hans1967!  Enjoy the Berliners.

To answer your question, I think that when you run `conky` without specifying a particular config file, it first looks for ~/.conkyrc; if it doesn't find that, it looks for /etc/conky/conky.conf.  If it doesn't find either of those, I'm sure Conky has its own native default config.

Re: Conky v1.9 Thread

@ VastOne, @ pvsage,

Thank you for your prompt answers.

My problem concerning configuring text color persists nevertheless.

I just installed a photo background wallpaper. Unfortunately I am not able to change text colour. I have already experimented a lot.

What to do?

Thank you for your attention,

best regards,

Re: Conky v1.9 Thread

Do you have compositor enabled?

Are you using Openbox?


To change the font color, change this line

default_color 656667

default_color 8EB4C7  would make it blue

default_color ffffff would make it white

default_color 000000 would make it black

default_color #11FF00 is green

default_color FDFF00 is Yellow

default_color BA00FF is purple

What color would you like it to be?

When you are editing  .conkyrc and save it, the changes should reflect immediately on the conky on your desktop .. So change the color and then save it.. and you should see the change

Re: Conky v1.9 Thread

Hello everyone!... I am just added a new conky just to show me the time. I want it to be always visible over the title bars of the other windows... is it possible??... it should be since we can make it with a normal window (setting the type of my conky to normal didn't solve it because it has its own title bar). Thanks!

EDIT: I found a solution: using the window type as dock and editing rc.xml to make dock floating and giving coordinates. Now: I need to find out what's the code of the color of my windows' borders... do you know how to?

Re: Conky v1.9 Thread

^ Maybe change "below" to "above" in own_window_hints for this Conky?
