Downloads:  1010
Submitted:  Feb 11 2009
Updated:  Jun 16 2009

Description:

A lightweight alternative to desktop screenlets.

The screenshots show a battery meter, internet traffic monitor, wireless signal monitor and a RSS feed reader. There will be more to come depending on interest levels and suggestions. Please leave comments.

Installation:

1. Extract the 'Conky Widgets' folder to your home directory.
2. Click on the 'Install.sh' file inside the 'Conky Widgets' folder.

NB: When clicking on the 'Install.sh' file make sure you select 'Run' when prompted, and not 'Run in Terminal'.

Customizing:

To change the position of each widget on your monitor look for these lines near the top of each ~/.scripts/.conky-X file:

gap_x 20
gap_y 50

0,0 would correspond to the very corner of the screen. You can also try different alignment settings, by removing the # from any one of these four options:

#alignment top_left
#alignment top_right
#alignment bottom_left
#alignment bottom_right

To change the color scheme of the widget simply scroll down to the lines immediately above 'TEXT' and replace the color codes:

color0 000000
color1 D78E49

Good luck.




Changelog:

0.1 - Corrected conky.sh file to exclude unnecessary command.

0.2 - Added a RSS feed reader to the line up.

0.3 - Improved the battery conky to handle different battery configurations. Cleaned up installation process. Added support for Yahoo mail.

0.4 - Added an internet traffic reader. Resorted to 'kbs' as 'mbs' is not available.

0.5 - Added a wireless signal monitor. Introduced some minor customization features.

0.6 - Automated the installation process. Removed the email widget.

 Comments and suggestion

Hi ctc26! I've to comment out that the mail widget for Yahoo! Mail is working now, great. That only thing that bothers me is that all the time that I start it up, it shows that total of messages in INBOX folder, instead of new ones. I've a few suggestions to do if you don't mind:

1.Widget's names: instead of to use .conkrc1, .conkrc1, ..., you would can to use .conkrc-mail, .conkrc-battery, .conkrc-rss, ... I think that this would be more easy to go to it and modify it.

2. Two new widgets: the first to monitor the traffic through interface (IN / OUT) in MB (megabytes) and another to report the wireless signal strength (wireless adapter).

Keep up the excellent work.

Wolff

Hi again Wolff. Once again you'v been very helpful. I'v changed the file names to make customization easier. Im glad to hear that you now have a read on Yahoo! mail.

I had hoped that fixing the inbox issue would be easier. Usually I would get you to go to your Yahoo mail options and under POP3/forwarding you would be able to delete messages off the server once they had been sent to your email client. Therefore the conky-email would only read messages not yet accessed by your email client (new ones). Unfortunately Yahoo! doesn't offer this service without upgrading to Yahoo! Mail Plus. Gmail does offer this for free.

Alternatively you can periodically delete the messages that you have read off of your account manually, although i do realize how annoying this would be. There is not much i can do in terms of the conky-email script.

Wolff your desktop looks fantastic, and it gave me an idea. Your desktop is obviously a lot lighter than mine so i decided to make customizing the widgets easier. Refer to the description page for details (colors and position). Also fixed the conky-email scripts so that it would'nt cut off the bottom of the @.

Added the wireless signal monitor that you asked for, fairly simple but it does the trick (see third screenshot).

Thanks for posting the pic, great to see it all on another desktop.

Hi ctc26! I got a new screenshot of my notebook's desktop with new conky-wlan, it really rocks!

Link:

I was thinking that perhaps a bash script to do the tasks of install/uninstall/update would be interesting in order to automate the process, what do you think?

Keep up the kick ass work, mate!

Your desktop is really coming together nicely (i especially like the way uv integrated the dock)! The bash script is what i had originally planned from the beginning but i was wanting to see what widgets people liked/disliked before committing to something like that. Perhaps i could plan it for a 1.0 release lol. I also want to try my hand at some gui to make the customization of widgets a lot easier. But my coding ability isn't quite there yet.

The calender can be next on my list, along with a Tomboy tasks list (which is proving to be more trouble than its worth). I hope to make this a viable alternative to screenlets, especially for those that arn't using a composite manager ie. compiz.

Thanks for all the support, the ideas are really moving this thing forward.
