Lua script: "Rings" Meters for Conky by ~londonali1010 fav.me/d2ciqev
wallpaper: www.google.no/search?q=%D0%BD%…

installation:

1. extract the zip to a folder and place it wherever you like
2. open conkyrc in a text editor and changed the path to where you placed the rings.lua
3. open conkyshow in a text editor and change the path to the image x2.png
4. open the start script in text editor and change the path to the conky files, then give it permission to run: in terminal - chmod +x start . Or right click, properties, permissions, allow this to run...
5. open rings.lua in a text editor. Most is self explained, except the downspeedf and upspeedf rings where one have to set the max value to ones maximum internet speed (use speedtest.net if unsure). The value is in Kilobytes (KB) and you can convert the values you need here www.ibeast.com/content/tools/b…

Then run the start script

This is a beautiful conky that I want to install but there is a problem :(
When running the script to start the conky up, terminal brings me two errors:

Conky: statfs64 '/media/data': No such file or directory

And:
Conky: llua_do_call: function conky_ring_stats execution failed: /home/name/Conky/ConkyCloud/rings.lua:118: attempt to perform arithmetic on local 'value' (a nil value)
Conky: llua_do_call: function conky_ring_stats execution failed: /home/name/Conky/ConkyCloud/rings.lua:118: attempt to perform arithmetic on local 'value' (a nil value)

Any help would be appreciated as I really want to install this particular theme. ;)
Thanks

Looks like you haven't set the right path in the conkyrc file. Change "lua_load" to where the rings.lua file is located.

Conkyshow is another conkyrc (small cloud top right corner) that have to be loaded in a seperate process with the command "conky -c /path/to/conkyshow". And to get it to work you have to set the path in the conkyshow file to where x2.png is located.

Ping me back if it doesn't work..

Nvm, I was able to fix it. Thanks for the help though.
LovelyBacon's avatar
Please tell me how you fixed it so I can edit the post.

So I fixed the errors by changing some of the LUA code around, but Conky still won't display itself. Terminal gives m no errors, it displays:
conky: no process found
Conky: desktop window (120002a) is subwindow of root window (90)
Conky: window type - override
Conky: drawing to created window (0x2a00001)
Conky: drawing to double buffer
Conky: desktop window (120002a) is subwindow of root window (90)
Conky: window type - override
Conky: drawing to created window (0x3600001)
Conky: drawing to double buffer


However, the actual conky itself does not display on desktop.

Nope, the paths are correct and conky is able to find the rings.lua file. It's just that in rings, line 118 throws an error and that it can't find /media/data for some reason.

Update for compatible with conky 1.10 pls!!!
LovelyBacon's avatar
I'm not sure what you mean. I use conky-lua 1.9.0-2   aur.archlinux.org/packages/con…; and the conky works just as when I made it.
