 New Package - Conky

Hi there. Here is another package by me. It is conky.

The package is for the testing-branch atm.

Conky is a program which can display arbitrary information (such as the date, CPU temperature from i2c, MPD info, and anything else you desire) to the root window in X11. Conky normally does this by drawing to the root window, however Conky can also be run in windowed mode (though this is not how conky was meant to be used). More on the FAQ-page.

I love this program. It took me 2 hours to figure out how to configure it proper. First a screenshot:



To install conky to your paldo system add my repository:

Code[In neuem Fenster öffnen]
$ su
Password: enter your root password
# sed -i -e 's%<repositories>%&\n<repository>http://home.arcor.de/amsoft-linux-department/PaldoRepo/</repository>%' /etc/upkg.conf


Check also the actual packages-list from my repository.

Install conky with:

Code[In neuem Fenster öffnen]
upkg-build conky


Download this file and extract it to your home folder.

Edit the /home/<your username>/.conkyrc file the way you like it.

You can also read /home/<your username>/CONKY_README for more options.

If you downloaded the old conky_adds.tar.bz2 file, then re-download it to get the new files.

Drawing-Fix

Delete the /home/<your username>/.config/autostart/conky.desktop file.
(it's not a must)

Start Gnome-Properties with gnome-session-properties in a terminal.
Go to Startup Programs and click on New.
Add a New Startup Program:
Name: conkystartupdelay
Command: /home/<your username>/.conkyds

make the .conkyds executable:

Code[In neuem Fenster öffnen]
chmod +x /home/<your username>/.conkyds


Now it should work.

Is there a proper way to load conky after the desktop is fully drawn?
