Ha - I've wondered about that from time to time, myself. Good to know, in a pinch.

Merci beaucoup, sir!

Had conky 1.8.1 from archive.org Saluki repository running on Precise Puppy 5.7.1, and after uninstalling it and installing your 1.9 pet, everything worked perfectly.

Gonna have a look-see if this version has any nice new features.

Thanks!

Hi, solo.

Thanks for the positive report.

Don't get your hopes up regarding the features : you'll find that this conky compilation has very run-of-the-mill features! Smile

BFN.

Here's a good tip on how to change the border colors of your graphs and bars:

http://conky.pitstop.free.fr/wiki/index.php5?title=Changing_borders_colors_of_graphs_and_bars_%28en%29

Now, if you happen to have a wallpaper with a single color at the spot the conky graphs and bars are placed, you can make those borders disappear by making the borders match that color.

Hi, people.

Here is a more elegant take (hopefully!) on the conky switch! Smile

BFN.

musher0

Code:
#!/bin/sh
# conky-switch2.sh
# Codewise, this is more "elegant"! :-)
# musher0, June 4, 2014.
####
[ "`ps | awk '$4=="conky"'`" = "" ] && conky -c /root/.conky-1l-pek-haut || killall conky
#
# You may wish to colorize differently or play with the following
# icons to make yourself a nice icon for this conky-switch:
# /usr/local/lib/X11/mini-icons/mini-maxtall.xpm
# /usr/local/lib/X11/mini-icons/mini-maxwide.xpm
# Tip: save them as png pictures and make them 24 pixels wide
# before you work with them.
