PostPosted: Sun 29 Apr 2012, 14:17    Post subject:  External IP address for use in CONKY  

I have been battling the issue of showing the external IP address in Conky on and off.
It seems that the problem was solved here
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=483184

But since that post none of the codes mentioned there seem to work anymore.
So I did a little research and experimenting and found this code to work alright in establishing a file with just the external IP in it.
Code:
my_ipno=$(wget http://cmyip.com -qO - | grep -Ewo '\b([0-9]{1,3}\.){3}[0-9]{1,3}\b' | uniq)
echo $my_ipno >/tmp/iptest


I found part of it on the forum here, but can't seem to locate the post anymore, where it was mentioned. So credit goes to the unknown author.

More details on the issue can be found in my German thread here

second and third post down the page.

Hi wuwei,

what about "official" solution
Code:
wget -O - -q icanhazip.com

/usr/sbin/ipinfo wrote:
#!/bin/bash
# AUTHOR: Vovchik
# PURPOSE: GUI to show IP config info
# DATE: 14 May 2009
#120201 BK: internationalized.
#120323 replace 'xmessage' with 'yaf-splash'.

export TEXTDOMAIN=ipinfo
export OUTPUT_CHARSET=UTF-8

# --------------
# functions
# --------------

# --------------
get_data()
# --------------
{
nl='
'
# external ip
var0="`wget -O - -q icanhazip.com`"

Okay L18L

(schoen dich hier drueben zu sehen)

Your code works, but what is the file for?
I need the number for Conky, not just stand-alone?

Code:
 echo `wget -O - -q icanhazip.com` > /tmp/iptest
is shorter than
Code:
my_ipno=$(wget http://cmyip.com -qO - | grep -Ewo '\b([0-9]{1,3}\.){3}[0-9]{1,3}\b' | uniq)
echo $my_ipno >/tmp/iptest

It is not my code, it is vovchik´s

A point well taken L18L.

I'll store both codes away safely.
These websites for showing one's IP come and go. So its a good idea to have several options.

Thanks for your input.
