conky v1.9.0-6 for BunsenLabs Helium

I have managed to forward port the old (1.9.0-6) version of conky [1] to a Debian stretch base:

https://software.opensuse.org//download … kage=conky

You can grab the conky-all .deb files directly from these links and use gdebi to install them:

amd64 (for any 64-bit system)

i386 (32-bit)

Alternatively, add the repository line with:

sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/conky.list <<!
deb http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/Head_on_a_Stick:/conky/Debian_9.0/ /
!

Then add the APT key:

wget -nv http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:Head_on_a_Stick:conky/Debian_9.0/Release.key -O Release.key
apt-key add - < Release.key
rm Release.key

Finally, update the package database and upgrade the system:

sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade

I have added an epoch to the conky versions so APT sees them as "newer" than the stock stretch (v1.10) package.

Have fun!

smile

Full repository (with source code to appease rms & his ninja swords):

http://download.opensuse.org/repositori … ebian_9.0/

Ubuntu packages are also available for versions 16.04, 16.10 & 17.04

[1] Plain C codebase & non-lua-based configuration ftw!

Re: conky v1.9.0-6 for BunsenLabs Helium

You're welcome folks, the package should be installable in sid and also in buster (when that goes live on the 17th of June) and perhaps even bullseye (although I will repackage it for every stable release)  glasses

Re: conky v1.9.0-6 for BunsenLabs Helium

Ahem, I've ported the transitional package by mistake  ops

In my defence, I don't actually use conky  big_smile

Also, I was watching the Moto2 race while I was packaging  devil

I will now port the correct package, which I think is this one:

https://packages.debian.org/jessie/conky-all

Please speak up now if I'm wrong about this!

Re: conky v1.9.0-6 for BunsenLabs Helium

@Nili: do you want me to port conky-cli as well?

EDIT: or do you like https://packages.debian.org/jessie/conky-std?

There are too many conky packages  hmm

Re: conky v1.9.0-6 for BunsenLabs Helium

Why not also port the conky-std as well? That is the more minimal package.

Re: conky v1.9.0-6 for BunsenLabs Helium

I do wish there was a conky-legacy package in Debian, which basically is 1.9 repackaged. This should satisfy those who hated the new Lua based conky.

Re: conky v1.9.0-6 for BunsenLabs Helium

Right, it seems to be done.

Use the link at the bottom of the OP to get the .debs for conky-all, conky-std and conky-cli, they're all there.

I've put my real name & email in to stop Lintian complaining, it should now exit with status 0  glasses

It's worth noting that because these packages are built on a Debian stretch base they have stack-smashing protection enabled and the binaries are compiled as position independent executables to augment the address space layout randomisation that is applied across both user and kernelspace in Debian 9.

Which is nice.

Hi mate, thank you very much, at this moment don't need it but If I need your help, I will definitely ask for you.
Thanks again for your awesome contribution.

Re: conky v1.9.0-6 for BunsenLabs Helium

I've also built some packages for Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial?), available from the same link in the OP.

The full repository (including the source code) is here:

http://download.opensuse.org/repositori … ntu_16.04/

I would add 16.10 & 17.04 but I would then need to specify qtbase5-dev in the .dsc file and that would add ~13MiB to the total installed package size (if it wasn't already on the system) — I'm sure most of you will agree that is rather excessive  hmm

If any users of Ubuntu 16.10 or later really want this I can set up a separate repository on request.

EDIT: no, I'm getting confused (again), the build-deps won't add to the package size at all  roll

Added Ubuntu 17.04 & 16.10 as well:

http://download.opensuse.org/repositori … ntu_16.10/

http://download.opensuse.org/repositori … ntu_17.04/

Re: conky v1.9.0-6 for BunsenLabs Helium

Yay, I just discovered that the OBS has added Stretch, too, so am busy.

Aren't those various conky-std, all, etc. packages generated by your one build anyway?  Let me look into your OBS repo just to make sure...

Edit:  yes, they are.

Conky-std is the basic conky yes, and that would be good for really minimal setups or old systems so it's good to have this package as well.

That's not my version, that looks to have been installed from a standard v1.09 conky .deb file.

Here are mine again; the version number is 1:1.9.0-6, note the extra number and colon at the start:

https://build.opensuse.org/package/bina … Debian_9.0

It is easy to get mixed up because the names of the actual .deb files are the same as the stock v1.9 packages, sorry about that.

EDIT: changed link to full repository.

Re: conky v1.9.0-6 for BunsenLabs Helium

Thinking about this, you may just have the transitional "conky-all" package.

I think you need this .deb file for the actual binary executables:

http://download.opensuse.org/repositori … _amd64.deb

It's simpler to add my repository and `apt upgrade` to the new version because there are so many different individual packages involved.
