Hi winter08,

Yes it should be possible. Conky is displaying acpi battery status.
If you have a usb ups supported by the HAL driver in NUT (NetworkUpsTools), you
may get this info. (If the ups is reporting it. Some small ups'es only give status)

You need to compile nut with the hal use flag. This make your ups hotplug and
start the hal-enabled driver. This driver report to the acpi interface.

Have tested this with my PW3105 in gnome. The battery applet appear and is reporting
the status of the ups. If i pull the plug it shift to a battery symbol and say that you are
running on battery.

Observe that you can not run NUT as a service (upsdrv, upsd and upsmon) as this would
conflict with the hal driver.

Ref:http://blog.shadypixel.com/monitoring-a-ups-with-nut-on-debian-or-ubuntu-linux/
Only the first part about hal is relevant. Then it explain the 'normal' way to run NUT.

hi guys !!
I'm using conky to put several thinks on my desktop like you can see on this screenshot :
http://img376.imageshack.us/img376/9940/fvwm0vr.jpg
because i also have some Buttonbars from fvwm next to it i have to adjust every item ... (so i have several instances of conky, which is difficult to handle and also could be handled by one instance )
So is it possible to give a item in config an position something similar to that :
Code:

${pos_x 100} ${pos_y 100} $uptime


You can use the the ${goto xx} command to move displayed output xx pixels from the left edge of your conky display.

You can use ${offset xx} to move it xx pixels to the right of where the command is put on the line.

And use the ${voffset xx} command to move displayed test up or down. -xx will move text up xx will move text down.

So:
Code:
${goto 150}${voffset -25}$uptime

will move the display to the right 100 pixels and up 50.

See a sample: ${goto}, ${offset} & ${voffset}

Hope that helps.

What is wrong?


Text buffer size:

Quote:
text_buffer_size Size of the standard text buffer (default is 256 bytes). This buffer is used for intermediary text, such as individual lines, output from $exec vars, and various other variables. Increasing the size of this buffer can drastically reduce Conky's performance, but will allow for more text display per variable. The size of this buffer cannot be smaller than the default value of 256 bytes.


So above TEXT put this line:

Code:
text_buffer_size 512


Have a nice day.

I'm trying to figure out how to align each field MPD | CPU | UPTIME etc so that each field, delimited by '|' stays centered while it expands/contracts, with the '|' horizontally fixed at certain points along the frame. Overall, I'd like the entire output to remain right-aligned.


Use a mono font.
Use ${goto xx} to position all the | in your one liner. leaving enough space between for "max" output.

For example: $uptime the display could be: 13d 22h 43m 18s - or - 3h 3m 02s

Code:
Uptime: 13d 22h 43m 18s |
Uptime: 3h 3m 02s       |


Would look something like:

Code:
Uptime: $uptime${goto 100}| next command${goto 241}

You'll have to play with that "100"

Personally I'd use: $uptime_short - I don't need the seconds.

Check out: the ${goto} & ${offset} part of: ${goto}, ${offset} & ${voffset}

Also: check out this post.

Hope this helps.
Bruce

I just noticed this problem last night. For some reason ${font} in my conkyrc file doesn't set the font to what is default, it continues using whatever font was specified using ${font some_font:font_size}.

I have no idea where to begin looking for the cause of this problem, however, I have tried re-emerging conky to no avail. Let me know if you need to see any files other than the conkyrc which is shown below (note: the file has not been changed and was working a few days ago. Also the file is running fine with conky on ubuntu so the error shouldn't be there)

Code:

Hi Andy,

I have no idea if this will help for a couple of reasons:

1. at the moment I'm on Xubuntu
2. I don't have your default font.

Next a question: Are the conky versions the same here and with Ubuntu?

However, since it's not working here and it is with Ubuntu I did notice some things that I "cleaned up" and just maybe it will help. One never knows, each distro is different.

First: I noticed that you are using only "white" but your default was "red", and while you had a LOT of ${color white}, you did not have a single ${color} to turn it off. So I changed your defauly color and deleted all references to color in your file:

Code:
# Default colors and also border colors
default_color white
default_shade_color white
default_outline_color white


Second: I noticed you are using ${alignr} and $alignr - not supposed to make a difference but I have noticed (in Xubuntu) that there are times that $alignr doesn't work right. So I changed all of those to: ${alignr}

Third: I saw where you had used:

${font Arial:size=9}$command ${hr}
and
${font Arial:size=9}$command ${hr}${font}

Changed all those to:
${font Arial:size=9}$command${font} ${hr}

You have the only change I made "above" TEXT here's the changes "below" TEXT

Code:
TEXT
${font Arial:size=9}$nodename${font}  ${hr}

Thanks for the reply, however, the changes didn't correct the output of conky and ${font} still isn't returning the font to what is set at default. On ubuntu I'm running version 1.6.1 of conky vs. 1.7.0_rc1 on gentoo. I don't think it is the version as I haven't updated conky in some time and this problem just started up two days ago out of nowhere. FYI, here is a screenshot of my desktop so you can see exactly what is going on http://i677.photobucket.com/albums/vv140/rzrgenesys187/conky-screenshot.png

I just tried running it by changing one of the ${font} variables to ${font tlwgtypewriter:size=9} (which is my default font) and it worked as it was supposed to. Is there a dependency or something that governs Xft that may not be working correctly?

Well, the only other thing I can think of it to build your conky one line at a time below TEXT and see just where the error starts.

Also, change your "typewriter" font to something more common.

If NONE of that helps then I'd think there is a problem that is not conky related.

Have a nice day.

I tried what you said and the problem begins right at the beginning and changing the default font doesn't help. Do you have any idea where to begin looking for an outside problem that may cause this?

You said:

I would start with re-installing conky v1.6.1 since we know that works.

And the latest stable conky release is out as well: Conky 1.7.1

Have a nice day.

Upgrading to 1.7.1 makes the problem worse somehow, and downgrading to 1.6.1 doesn't fix the problem either. It almost seems like when I use ${font somefont:size} the font variable is being changed so that when ${font} is later used it uses this new value rather than the default.

Actually I see from other posts in other forums, while v1.7.1.1 is the stable release, a lot of "Oops!" applied to it. Fonts disappearing graphs not working right. I think I'll wait a while and one post where "everything" disappeared except his bar graphs. Really strange.

Now if v1.6.1 doesn't work then you have a different problem with the laptop (you said it's working with Ubuntu in your desktop if I recall correctly) and need to find out what it is. Maybe you are missing a "dependency". Did you install something recently that "removed" someting as a result of installation?

I'm grasping at straws, trying to eliminate all possibilities.

I haven't removed anything recently. One of the first things I did was to go through my emerge.log and rollback any updates I had applied right before the problem happened and it didn't solve anything.

As an aside: I replaced all of the ${font} with the more explicit one as a workaround, but I would still like to find the root of the problem

anybody have a working weather script anymore. My just stopped working in the past couple of days with this error: missing XOAP link parameter in request. I did a quick google and I think this is related to weather.com change. I'm using the old weather script that looks like this:

Code:

#!/bin/sh
#
# Grab weather data from weather.com and format it according to the given XSLT
# Script written by boojit
# Modified by Hellf[i]re
# The orignal script and xslt can be downloaded from http://pondol.com/weather.tar.gz

# Usage:
# ${execi 1800 /path/to/weather/weather.sh location}
# Usage Example:
# ${execi 1800 /home/user/weather/weather.sh 03833}

# your Location ID: use http://xoap.weather.com/search/search?where=[yourcity] to find it
# U.S. users can just use their zip code; doubt that works for anyone else though (YMMV)
LOCID=13090

# s=standard units, m=metric units
UNITS=m

# where this script and the XSLT lives
RUNDIR=/home/kundera/scripts/weather

# there's probably other stuff besides CURL that will work for this, but i haven't
# tried any others.
# you can get curl at http://curl.haxx.se/
CURLCMD=/usr/bin/curl

# get it at http://xmlsoft.org/XSLT/
XSLTCMD=/usr/bin/xsltproc

# you probably don't need to modify anything below this point....

# CURL url. Use cc=* for current forecast or dayf=10 to get a multi-day forecast
CURLURL="http://xoap.weather.com/weather/local/$LOCID?cc=*&unit=$UNITS&dayf=2"

# The XSLT to use when translating the response from weather.com
# You can modify this xslt to your liking
XSLT=$RUNDIR/weather.xslt

#filter (if you want to convert stuff to lower-case or upper case or something)
#FILTER="|gawk '{print(tolower(\$0));}'"


#####
eval "$CURLCMD \"$CURLURL\" 2>/dev/null| $XSLTCMD $XSLT - $FILTER"


any help is appreciated.

I was just setting conky back up myself last night and ran into this. Apparently, there have been some changes.... Now you will need to go to weather.com and register http://www.weather.com/services/?from=hat_more look for the xml feed on the list on the left.... once you are registered, change the line above to something like this:

Code:

CURLURL="http://xoap.weather.com/weather/local/$LOCID?link=xoap&prod=xoap&par=<your number>&key=<your key>&cc=*&unit=$UNITS&dayf=5"



That should fix that problem for you

After I updated conky from 1.7.1.1-r2 to 1.7.2_rc2 conky segfault, if I delete diskiograph from .conkyrc it works like expected.

have any of you guys successfully got transparency working on kde-4.2?

i'm aware that i need to use the feh utility but i'm not having much luck with the various scripts i've googled.

preferably one that isn't hardcoded to a specific wallpaper as i've set my background to change every hour or so.

cheers
