Now it's easy to customize your desktop!

Conky is a free, light-weight system monitor for X, that displays any information on your desktop.

CONKY-colors is an easier way to configure Conky.

This conky script support multilanguage:
Bulgarian, English, German, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Ukrainian

How to install
Go to a terminal and type:
$sudo apt-get install aptitude python-statgrab python-keyring ttf-ubuntu-font-family hddtemp curl lm-sensors conky-all
$sudo chmod u+s /usr/sbin/hddtemp || https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=75639
$sudo sensors-detect #answering Yes (default) to all questions, even that last one that defaults to No

Now restart your session

Download and extract the conky-colors.zip and type in terminal in the same directory that has been extracted.
$sudo make install
$conky-colors {options}

$conky-colors --help [for help]

Ex: if your cpu is quad-core and you want the noble color, with hd, network and pidgin monitor and all in portuguese
conky-colors --theme=gnome-noble --lang=pt --cpu=4 --network --hd=default --pidgin

For a working photo widget you need to specify a file or directory in conkyPhoto or conkyPhotoRandom script in ~/.conkycolors/bin/

Update your font cache:
$sudo fc-cache -v -f

Conky Banshee Script: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=7683570
+++ If you can, say thanks to him for this great work +++

in terminal type conky -c ~/.conkycolors/conkyrc.

To run conky at startup, go to System > Preferences > Startup Applications, click "Add" and add the path to the conkyStart file[/usr/share/conkycolors/bin/conkyStart]

that's all folks!

conky-colors --cpu=2 --calendar --photord --clementine=cd --hd=default --network --theme=wise
conky-colors --sls --weather=brxx0043 --theme=orange
conky-colors --cairo --cpu=2 --clock=cairo --network --theme=blue
conky-colors --ring --network --theme=red
conky-colors --slim --w=1440 --h=900 --theme=white --weather=brxx0043
conky-colors --board --w=1440 --h=900 --theme=cyan

Lua/bash scripts work with conky 1.8.1, but most of the python scripts still doesnt;
SLS MODE only work with lm-sensors configured
The position of the photo and cover may be wrong bc in ubuntu the space between the widgets is different from Archlinux (I'm an arch user now)




9.0 (2013-10-17)
* Complete new icon set, replaced most of the fonts with the new conkycolors font family;
* Widgets review;
* Refactory all hd scripts to use python 3;
* Many, many, many bugfixes;

Let me just tell you that I fucking adore you for the bloody damn awesome work you are doing with Conky Colors! I've been using it for ages now as a base for further customizations - and the --cairo option almost makes my life complete!

Again, thank you sooooo much!

 conkyMPD script seems broken

 by KL-7 on: Aug 11 2010

Hi, thank you for such a great work. I've just installed conky and conky-colors and they're great. But there is small problem with bin/conkyMPD script. It uses mpd conky variables (such as $mpd_album and others) that are not defined in this shell script. As the result all I get in conky are '(null)' for all mpd stats.
Hope you will fix it. Anyway, ty again =)

Oh, sorry. I've looked again on this script. It just prints variables' names, but not their values. That's ok.

But I still have the problem with this script. It shows only '(null)'s instead of all mpd_ values.

And absolutely strange thing is that everything became ok if I add $mpd_status (or any other mpd_ variable) right after '${execpi 10 ~/.conkycolors/bin/conkyMPD}' line in my .conkyrc. In this case conky shows all mpd info: mpd status (from variable I've added) and than output from your script. And if I remove line I've just added and restart conky I get '(null)'s again =( I know this sounds crazy, but may be you know what can be wrong with it?

No problem =) Using your layout for mpd and some googling I've written my own python script that adds album cover to mpd info. But the problem is the same: if there are no any references to mpd_* variables in .conkyrc itself than all mpd_* variables from external script are displayed as '(null)'. And when I add '${if_mpd_playing}' to .conkyrc than all variables from my external script are treated correctly.

It's really strange, but I don't think the problem is with conky-colors. May be it's a minor conky's bug or my own specific problem =)

I can't make this work. At all. I follow the steps, cut and paste the commands as per the read me, and terminal tells me that 'no such file or directory'

Annoying isn't the word

i think u are trying to do exec this commands out of the folder of conky-colors.
For example if you extracted conky-colors onto your desktop, this is how you navigate using the terminal to the conky-colors folder:

cd ~/Desktop/conky-colors

 Not working on Ubuntu Maverick

Can't get this to work on the development version of Ubuntu. I get the following terminal output:

Conky: one or more $endif's are missing
Conky: desktop window (220001f) is subwindow of root window (ab)
Conky: window type - override
Conky: drawing to created window (0x4400001)
Conky: drawing to double buffer
^CConky: received SIGINT or SIGTERM to terminate. bye!

Nothing seems to show up at all, but conky with no conkyrc works. Let me know if I can provide more information.
