Conky in Google Now Style, a part of the Numix Project.

The font used is "Open Sans Light"

The wallpaper used in the screenshot is from fav.me/d5ujtpj

It includes 3 styles, light, dark and transparent.

Installation Instructions


1. First install "conky" if you don't have it, also ensure that you have "curl" installed.

2. Extract contents of the archive into your home folder.

3. Open the file ".conkyrc" with a text editor, search for "2294941" and replace it with the WOEID of your own location. To find your WOEID, browse or search for your city from the Yahoo Weather home page . The WOEID is in the URL for the forecast page for that city.

4. Add "conky" to your Startup Applications.

5. Enjoy!

still not sure what i'm doing wrong:

jameshomepc:~$ conky
conky: Syntax error (/home/james/.conkyrc:3: unexpected symbol near '#') while reading config file.
conky: Assuming it's in old syntax and attempting conversion.
conky: desktop window (280000a) is subwindow of root window (1de)
conky: window type - normal
conky: drawing to created window (0x1e00001)
conky: drawing to double buffer
conky: one or more $endif's are missing
cp: target '/home/james/.cache/weather.png' is not a directory

I feel like i've tried all the differnt pastebins and still not working.  Any ideas?

download it extract it to .conky ... for icons you need to copy .conky-google-now folder to your HOME (show hidden files)
there are two files: sample_dublin_celsius_560743 and sample_portland_fahrenheit_2475687
::: to change cities go to www.yahoo.com/news/weather/ire… then click on Change location enter your city and get your number from the addressbar. (the digits at the end of the address is your woeid)
::: search the sample for either 560743 or 2475687 depending on what temperature you want and replace it with your woeid

ps: this conky ONLY has weather and the network i edited out from the original

same

edit: it's yahoo. Conky can't download the weather data. Yahoo return a OAUTH error when curl try to download data in weather.xml. I don't know how to fix it.

This is the error: Please provide valid credentials. OAuth oauth_problem="OST_OAUTH_PARAMETER_ABSENT_ERROR", realm="yahooapis.com"

you need a yahoo api key to use it now.
