qlocktwo conky by mowgli-writes qlocktwo conky by mowgli-writes
Hi there! =)  This is my first post here on deviantart; I'll be using this account to share my Linux desktop customizations/screenshots and writing.

*Update: See it in action here (mowgli-writes.deviantart.com/a…

To use this conky, simply:

1.) Extract the text file to your home directory
2.) Rename the file to ".conkyrc"
3.) Add "conky -d" to your startup applications.

You will also need to install the Source Sans Pro font (github.com/adobe/source-sans-p…, or edit the config file to use your preferred font.

For those interested, the conky is based on an actual clock (www.qlocktwo.com/). Original code found here (crunchbang.org/forums/viewtopi…. Thanks for stopping by! =D

Made it this:

"

own_window yes
own_window_type normal

use_xft yes
xftfont freemono:size=20
xftalpha .1
update_interval 15.0
uppercase 0
double_buffer yes
default_color ffffff
color1 222222
alignment bottom_left
gap_x 0
gap_y 0

#own_window_argb_value 0
own_window_transparent yes
own_window_hints undecorated,below,sticky,skip_taskbar,skip_pager
#own_window_argb_visual yes
#own_window_colour 000000

"

Where is the text for your version? I installed the "original code" from the link above, but the clock is white letters on black background, but it has a menu bar with close X, min expand and title bar that says conky. How do I get it to be boarderles like your picture above so it looks like its part of the desktop background?

The link to the Source Sans Pro font got some typo, thus a closing bracket at the end of the address: github.com/adobe/source-sans-p…). Please edit it so that it will take you straight to the GitHub site.
But instead you get 404 error page not found. You have to remove the trailing closing bracket in order to reach the site.

Thanks for this! I know this thread is a bit old now but I tried it out and have errors. I'm not familiar with Conky yet so I'm unsure what could be causing the errors. It still appears to be working however.
Errors here: pastebin.com/Ga3WXm3k TIA!

Ok, I fixed some of the errors. I have Conky 1.10 which converted to lua for the config. However I am still getting the bad arguments / compare failed for expression errors.

Here's the updated config: pastebin.com/0D0ceKHw

No worries. It was fun stumbling upon the original code and playing with it; thought it was worth sharing. =D
