Conky semi-transparent

A clean and minimalistic conky config.
Supports only 1024x600 resolution. Though the width part is tricky, script can be easily adapted for any screen resolution (i guess :3).
Wallpaper is A trip to wonderland by ~secroit.
Also, Zekton and StyleBats fonts are needed for this to work.

cant make it work, y copy the two files on my /home
and conky doesnt show itself well.
i only can see a black line a cross the screen and two little white lines that i guess are the division with the clock, calendar and system (on the conky theme)... guess is something wrong with the W and H of the conky theme... but i dont know how to change them. :(

(sorry, my first language is not english, so any ortography fault, my apologies)

the problem was caused by the lines of the music player

now I get this "sh: 1: gcal: not found"

Conky: MPD error: problems getting a response from "localhost" on port 6600 : Connection refused

Check if you are running only 1 instance of conky. If so, try to disable windows compositing.

but window compositing and visual effect are disable

Can't really say what is wrong. I've long since sold my linux netbook, neither do i have this OS on desktop to test conky config again. It's quite obsolete, if you ask me.

very nice setup ...
maybe you could use the ${goto} variable instead of so mamy ${offset} , it may be easier to adapt to other resolutions and could be adapted to other fonts too ;)

how do I install this?... Do I have to type in the terminal: conky -c ~/path/to/conkyrc
Or is it something else?
Bugich's avatar
Copy these files to your user's home folder, I guess conky reads conkyrc from there by default.
