Futuristic Conky V2.2

Conky based on Future Conky 2.1 by hfcf.

To install just move or copy the ".Conky" hidden folder to you user folder.

Go to
type in your location and press enter. If your location is found and you can see a
forecast, copy and keep the web address somewhere.

Put the hidden folder ".Conky" in your user folder!

Don't forget to install the fonts!!!

Open the script ".Conky/future_conky/accwueather/accuw_script" with your favourite text editor and replace my location's address at the
"adress=" with yours (taken from www.accuweather.com).

To put conky to start with the system go to "startup applications" and add in the "command" the file ".Conky/future_conky/start_conky.sh"

Used Scripts further modified by me:

Multi Rings (Based on \\\\\\\"conky_orange\\\\\\\" by SLK)

\\\\\\\"RINGS with SECTORS\\\\\\\" by wlourf

Accuweather Script taken from \\\\\\\"TeoBigusGeekus_Conky_Weather_Scripts_12-5-12\\\\\\\"

hwmon arguements for core temp, GPU temp mothermoard temp and fan speeds will need to be adjusted according to your setup. (install and run sensors )

For Islamic prayer times install itools and change you location in the config file.


pls see an alternative newer versions but with some features removed hence left this intact.


27/5/12 - removed duplicate line (71) thus correctly realigning. Thanks to leodelacruz

 How to install

Hey, I am new to Ubuntu, I am using Gnome 3 on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, I am trying to install your Conky but I have no results, I don't have a clue what folder you are on about when you simply say "user folder", help me.

I will try to help but I have only being using linux for 1 month some am relatively new.

1. install conky in a terminal with following command

sudo apt-get install conky-all

it will ask you for root password.

2. extract the zip (futuristic conky) in the home directory such that the " .Conky " folder is a direct subdirectory of the home directory.

3. you can then run the start_conky.sh script but first change its permissions so it is executable like a program. can even add a link to the start up so it launch's at boot.

Or alternatively you can run from terminal with following command

$ conky -c $HOME/.Conky/future_conky/config/conkyrc1 &

hope that helps!

 Confused on configuration

I am not sure how to set up the sensors correctly. You mention that I have to adjust hwmon by running sensors but I am not sure what you mean by that. I get the following error when I try to run:

kgullikson@HAL9000 ~/.Conky/future_conky $ sh start_conky.sh
kgullikson@HAL9000 ~/.Conky/future_conky $ Conky: temperature_unit: incorrect argument

Conky: can't open '/sys/class/hwmon/hwmon2/temp1_input': No such file or directory
please check your device or remove this var from Conky

Thanks for the help (and the conky config if I can get it working!)

1. install and sensors. ( if you on a debian system like ubuntu or mint linux then type the following in to terminal . it will ask you for your password)

sudo apt-get install lm-sensors

2. configure sensors by typing in the terminal

sudo sensors-detect

answering Yes (default) to all questions, even that last one that defaults to No

3. restart the terminal and run sensors by typing sensors then post that information here.


4. check you have the following hwmon directories


you can get an indication of the files within those directories and then the 'device' sub-folder are what needs to be used.
look within hwmon2/device and see if there is a temp 1 or temp 2 or GPU temp etc.

Okay I did those steps. Here is the output of sensors:

Adapter: ISA adapter
Core 0: +61.0°C (high = +80.0°C, crit = +100.0°C)
Core 1: +61.0°C (high = +80.0°C, crit = +100.0°C)
Core 2: +62.0°C (high = +80.0°C, crit = +100.0°C)
Core 3: +61.0°C (high = +80.0°C, crit = +100.0°C)

Adapter: ACPI interface
Vcore Voltage: +0.93 V (min = +0.80 V, max = +1.60 V)
+3.3V Voltage: +3.33 V (min = +2.97 V, max = +3.63 V)
+5V Voltage: +5.14 V (min = +4.50 V, max = +5.50 V)
+12V Voltage: +12.31 V (min = +10.20 V, max = +13.80 V)
CPU Fan Speed: 1795 RPM (min = 600 RPM)
Chassis1 Fan Speed: 0 RPM (min = 600 RPM)
Chassis2 Fan Speed: 1214 RPM (min = 600 RPM)
NB Fan Speed: 1180 RPM (min = 600 RPM)
Power Fan Speed: 0 RPM (min = 0 RPM)
CPU Temperature: +47.0°C (high = +60.0°C, crit = +95.0°C)
MB Temperature: +38.0°C (high = +45.0°C, crit = +75.0°C)
NB Temperature: +52.5°C (high = +60.0°C, crit = +95.0°C)

I have an hwmon0 and hwmon1 directory, but no hwmon2 directory.

hwmon 2 temp 1 for me is the graphics card do you have a separate graphics card or an integrated one.

open the following file in a text editor (such as gedit or kate).


on line 87 delete the last bit from 'GPU $.......°C' till the end of the line (once you get it working you could output some thing else here to use up the space. such as the M/B or N/B temps)

${voffset 11}${goto 77}GPU ${hwmon 2 temp 1} °C

then try to run the conky in terminal with

conky -c $HOME/.Conky/future_conky/config/conkyrc1 &

If it still doesn't work then
look in /sys/class/hwmon/hwmon0/device

you should have some files referring to your Core temps such as

Core0 , Core1, Core2, Core3 or
temp1, temp2, temp3, temp4 or
something else

mine were temp2, temp3, temp4, temp5 and that's what Futuristic Conky is based on.

open following in text editor


and change the arguments for the hwmon0 "temp x" for whatever is in your system
name="hwmon 0",
arg="temp 2", <---change this line

repeat for all the cores - hwmon 0 . save the file and run

conky -c $HOME/.Conky/future_conky/config/conkyrc1 &

if still not working repeat above for hwmon 1 which is your motherboard.

based on the sensors out put possible names will be

CPU Fan Speed
Chassis1 Fan Speed
(was 0 so might not be connected to a fan)
Chassis2 Fan Speed
NB Fan Speed
Power Fan Speed (also 0)
CPU Temperature
MB Temperature
NB Temperature

so double check names in hwmon1/device folder change accordings arg in the lua file as before.
you may also need to change line 94 in the conkyrc1 file which reads

${voffset 11}${goto 77}M/B ${hwmon 1 temp 3} °C

let me know how it goes.

Thanks for the help!

I got it mostly working. I had to play with the vertical offsets to get things to look right. Maybe that is because I didn't install the fonts? I am not sure what you mean by that. The weather formatting looks really funky, but I don't really care about that anyways so I will probably just lop it off.

The fonts which include weather symbols are both installed by opening up the font file in file manager, and then click on install font at right lower corner.

If you not using the fonts then alignment will be out and weather symbols will be absent.

it depends on your setup, and kernal.
It should work but not 'out of the box' will need to be tweaked by yourself
