It's amusing how people put a bunch of useless often static information in their conky config but no one has a little system console window in the corner which will have the most useful information to a UNIX system.

To be honest, i don't really see the point of conky: the real time information uses resources, so if you're on a low powered machine you really could do better freeing up those resources and if you're on a high powered machine, then it doesn't really matter what resources you're using anyway. Plus most of the time it's hidden by overlapping windows.

Each to their own and all that though. I used to be well into desktop widgets too, but these days i just have an online comic on my desktop and that's about it.

I agree, I have never used conky but it seems mostly for aesthetics. I just have a mini system console window, but that comes default with OpenBSD.

I agree. I'm loving this.

If someone really wants to get blinky lights and infos on their desktop, RainMeter still is better than conky, I think.

EDIT: My laptop's power cord officially gave up, so I only have one usable computer. I was going to install Arch Linux and DWM on it, looks like I will need to get a Virtual Machine since I spend way too much time on windows to reboot all the time with only one machine...

post #3797 of 7733
well, i'm not that good at editing code, and by not good I mean really, really bad. massacred dwm.c for hours before giving up redface.gif

going to stick with what i've got for a while (added what really, bugged me off the bat anyways, the lack of a large number of layouts)
post #3798 of 7733
At the linux-initiate-phase it's fun to set up a large conky with lots o' data about the computer and how it actually operates smile.gif then I settled with a top line with the most basics (didn't know that there are things like xmonad or dwm at that time yet,..)
Right now I just need conky to display my teaching classes schedule from a txt agenda file (praise the org-mode), the todo's from there, and the study week number auto-counter (echo from `date +%W` minus the necessary week number to match, took me some time to figure out),... a calendar maybe, and the clock,... pretty much static )
Probably there's a more efficient way to display the txt file contents on the desktop (I still don't know other possibilities -- perhaps dwm / xmonad have any way for this? )

Speaking of which, just realized I could've piped the week number output directly into xmobar :-))

You got a repo somewhere? Lack of decent second hard drive got me installing Arch in virtualbox with DWM and google chrome. (my two other hard drives are LOUD and SLOW. (30MB/sec, and rattling like a dead blender VS 300MB/sec file copy (That's what Win7 says of my Seagate barracuda, not sure I trust that number) and silent)

I posted one of the older builds a few posts up ( probably 6 months or so old ). I don't think you'd want my newer one just yet, still working a lot of kinks out... mainly a week of programming while drunk... >.>;... but I can open up my local repo and add it there whenever I find time.
