What's so hard about it?

If you're using Ubuntu, just
Code:
sudo apt-get install conky
then

Code:
sudo gedit .conkyrc
and post the config there.
Make sure you have the fonts in the font folder.

you will need to adjust the widths/heights to match your resolution...which will require a lot of tinkering with the goto's.

i run lmsensors, so the hardware temps are for lmsensors setup not acpi.

so i guess there is no easy way to modify it

Im sorry for the late response but here it is. I have also attached the needed files. Put them in your Home folder and paste the config to the .conkyrc file.

post #2665 of 7733
I thought I'd give KDE a try after wanting something a bit prettier than LXDE, and Gnome 3 and Unity not being to my tastes.

I'm actually really surprised, I never thought I'd go back to KDE. I was an avid KDE 3.5 user, and I dropped KDE after KDE 4 was released - for obvious reasons.

But KDE 4.6.2 (the one I'm running) seems so much more polished than the original KDE 4. I'm really impressed with the desktop widgets, and generally how responsive it is - far, far more responsive than Unity or Gnome 3. Especially good considering I'm running on an old Dell D420 laptop.

Although, I can't stand the 'bouncing' icon whenever anything is launched. In my opinion it's incredibly tacky, and has no place on my desktop

Overall, though; I'm very impressed.

You can disable that. I can't remember where the setting is, but it's alled Startup Feedback. I don't mind it that much but I make sure it only goes for 1 second.

I forget how, as I don't use my computer with KDE4.6 much unless I'm trying to show off what it can do, but you can not only disable the bouncing icon, but you can change it to do other things such as Spin, funnel, enlarge, or change the icon to a standard item that is the same for every time you launch something. It can do a few other things too.

I also agree with how nice it is. Absolutely ing gorgeous DE! The Plasma stuff really sets off the bling-factor. And ever since they updated it to 4.6 its been really stable. If my main use computer had more power I would use it instead of Openbox for sure. Also, there's almost no point in conky, as Plasma has a widget for nearly everything.

This is what my Fed15 looks like with KDE4.6

I've looked at the launch feedback options, and they are quite extensive yet I much prefer none at all

KDE 4.6 with the Elementary icon theme is just desktop perfection IMO

What is so great about KDE?
Why do people like it more than Gnome or some other DE?
post #2670 of 7733
They must have only recently added new launch feedback types. For the longest time there has only been bounce and flash. Flash always looks cheap because even if the icon is partially transparent, the flash (rapid fade to white and back) fills the entire square.
