Re: chatter from Conky Archive thread

Here's another idea - make it a "Closed"-type thread. mrpeachy or some other qualified person chooses posted setups and a kind mod adds them to the collection. That way posted conkys don't have to share space with responses, questions etc - it's a read-only shop window. Other threads can deal with responses to the item in question.

Once it has grown a bit, it could be a great conky resource for the wider conky community

Re: chatter from Conky Archive thread

Please make this a sticky.

Maybe we need a sticky for conky resources ?


There's a reason you separate military and the police. One fights the enemies of the state, the other serves and protects the people. When the military becomes both, then the enemies of the state tend to become the people.

Re: chatter from Conky Archive thread

Per a request from mrpeachy via PM, I have split these posts off from the Conky Archive thread.

Re: chatter from Conky Archive thread

Read on in to the forums and realised my idea here was out of date already.

Re: chatter from Conky Archive thread

Now the configs need to be sorted. Either by name or by type - simple, lua based, clocks etc. There'll be some overlapping I suppose.

Re: chatter from Conky Archive thread

but no trivial task to do  smile

still got about a 80 or so pages to look through, then we can think about arranging

Re: chatter from Conky Archive thread

Wow this sounds awesome, mrpeachy, sector11 thanks so much! I can't wait to be a part of this community once I get crunchbang up and running on my old macbook (just waiting for some monitor cables so I can test it out before I order a new screen to fix it up with!)

Also, I think sector11's idea about chronological ordering newest to oldest makes sense, especially from a maintenance point of view.

About Conky, I googled and found that it appears to be responsible for the system stats that print out on crunchbang's desktop. Is it also what makes people's screens look so cool? In other words, when people post their setups in the screenshot thread, what do they change to get it to look that way?

Re: chatter from Conky Archive thread

Awesome, thanks damo and Sector11! I definitely will check out the conky stuff once I'm at that point, but first I need to get the hardware operational. Looking forward to it, and this new Conky Archive project!
