Just for the record, if in future you wish to run more than one instance of Conky, then you can use:
conky -c ~/path/to/conkyrc/file &
I run about 3/4 different instances of Conky, you don’t have to use the one in your home directory you can download others from sites like DeviantArt where there is tons. Including ones for weather, which are much nicer than the HTC clock one IMO.
@Glitch - Like Mark says you needs to be fast as hell and on the ball around here. I compete with Mark (in my head) to beat him to the first reply… usually I lose. XD
@BKS - I didn’t know that about running multiple conkys. I just use the one which shows me everything I need to know.
You guys obviously just keep refreshing the forums every 2 seconds… don’t you people have lives! Haha I’m not as quick but it’s probably because I’m busy e-bombing the Pentagon… I mean… being a good boy!
Yeah, you can. I usually do it to function like Windows’ Rainmeter app, which I so badly which they’d port to Linux, but because of the way the desktop interacts with everything else, there’s like a layer the desktop sits on and it causes problems for Rainmeter.
I’m sure in time once they’ve figured out how to fix it, they’ll release it, but by then Conky will probably already have a GUI front-end for easy setting up, etc.
If I’m honest, my live is pretty much my laptop, LOL. The only time I need to go out is when I need alcohol… erm… grown up juice ( I don’t drink much >.< ) , and food.
I usually check the forums at least, 30/40 times a day. XD
