So, I wanted to make a system by which I (or anyone else) could publish Lua widgets and make it as easy as possible to build them into Conky. Ive come up with a simple Lua script into which you can drop widget code blocks, some simple configuration info, and display them all with just a single call in Conky. That way, you only need one .conkyrc and one conky_widgets.lua script for all your widgety needs!
The .tar.gz file attached contains the basic Conky Widgets script; you will need one or more code blocks to make it work. For more info, please see the Conky Blog: [link]
The screenshot preview was created using a combination of my "Air" clock and four semi-circle rings. The widget code blocks for those widgets are contained in the packages below: + [link] + [link]
Changelog: + v1.1 -- Simplified calls to widgets by implementing a global drawing surface, and included imlib2 by default (03.11.2009) + v1.0 -- Original release (30.10.2009)
conky_launchpad is the conky config file, it load all images inside .conkyrc folder.
copy .conkyrc folder to your home directory = /home/user/ Optimized for 1366 display resolution, maybe not fit with smaller or higher resolution.
###> EXTRA ICONS:
another icons locate in Alt (alternatif) folder = ~/.conkyrc/pix/Alt/ you can use dark/white icons with border or without border, just copy the Alt icons and paste it to ~/.conkyrc/pix/ to overwrite original icons, then re-run conky to see the different.
When I saw this incredible script (and got the clock idea, and then found that someone has already coded that too, see here (EDIT: sorry, the webpage no longer seems to exist; just google for "conky lua rings" or something similar) ), I decided to play around with my desktop a bit, and this is the result
If you want the conkyrc, the rings script, the new mail script (circles on the right), or sth else, send me a note or email me! EDIT: As there have been more requests: Download the thing at [link] , and you also need the fonts used, that is Santana for the conky and White Rabbit if you want a background terminal that is not on the screenshot. Enjoy!
Yes, and the dock is AWN, the icon theme is AwOken, font is Santana, and the unbelievable wallpaper is Explode from gnome-look.org.
here is the conky for my sunny desktop. its made for 1440x900 resolution but it can edited very easy just look at the text.lua. it also includes the 1440x900 wallpaper. for other resolutions look at the filename. happy conkying
