Re: conky v1.9.0-6 for BunsenLabs Helium

^ You're welcome, glad you got it fixed.

I will add a note to the OP for anybody else who encounters this, I made the exact same error when attempting to test the .deb file...

Re: conky v1.9.0-6 for BunsenLabs Helium

Tried removing conky-all, apt wanted to install conky-standard.  Then it hit me, "conky" alone loads 'conky-all'  I no longer have 'conky' loaded. just conky-all.

Along come purge conky conky-all  big_smile  All cool!

Re: conky v1.9.0-6 for BunsenLabs Helium

Interestingly enough, anticapitalista asked me to do the same thing today for conky and gufw for the upcoming antiX 17 release, also based on Stretch, except asked for the packages to have "-legacy" added, such as "conky-legacy-all".  They seem to work well to remove the Stretch conky packages in favor of the legacy versions when we did some test upgrades from the OBS.  Sources are here:

Thanks for that one. Is this way better than merely adding an epoch to a package? BTW I liked your Palemoon builds too.

Re: conky v1.9.0-6 for BunsenLabs Helium

In honour of blizgreat: babble on

@ stevep - yea, I think conky v1.10 is loosing ground with people who "do" conky.  It removed some function-ability (not a word?) and didn't seem to add enough to compensate for it.

For me the two really big ones are the loss of:  ${pre_exec} and the loss of centre|right click on the conky itself to access menus.

And I'm not even talking about what the changes mean in different desktop environments.  There has to be some fallout there, hell, conky v1.9 reacts differently in different desktops.

If the move to LUA was - just because it's LUA - it was the wrong move, in my very humble, non-developer opinion.  And If I had the knowledge I'd fork it in a split second.

Call it:  yafot¹ v9:0.0-1²

Let's face it:

own_window yes
own_window_type normal
own_window_transparent yes

is easier than

	own_window = true,
	own_window_type = 'normal',
	own_window_transparent = true,

=====
¹ Yet Another Fork Of Torsmo
² -v9: represents based on conky v1.9.0-x

babble off

Seems like there is a new patch floating around which enables this behaviour on 1.10: https://github.com/brndnmtthws/conky/is … -308596072. If this is not in conky mainline, we could ship a package with the patch in BL He; the Debian package format lends itself to easy patching.

If the package builds fine I am willing to test this patched package.

Thanks for the PM kudos! I've been told by a developer that the next Pale Moon 27.4.0 release is coming "soon", but there's no firm date yet.

I think that renaming the Conky packages actually made it easier for me to have them upgrade in place over the standard conky packages, though I did have to edit some Conflicts and Replaces in the debian/control file to make it happen correctly. I added an epoch anyway, but now I'm sure that's not necessary for renamed packages.  Anti has let me know they work great, and the -legacy versions will be in the next antiX release

Re: conky v1.9.0-6 for BunsenLabs Helium

@ earlybird

Yea, but it says that he has to patch after every "update" so it's not an official patch.  However, maybe, it's on the way, unless it's another case like ${pre_exec}.

${pre_exec} command, that's been going on for three years now.  And yes, I tried "version 2" years ago and hated it then as well, it was Cv1.10 while still in the womb (Read: in development).  Now if Brandon has done nothing in 3 years about ${pre_exec}, he isn't going to, and that might flow over to the centre|right click function as well.

Me, I'll stick to Cv1.9 for a while yet.

Re: conky v1.9.0-6 for BunsenLabs Helium

I did a git pull from that repo, so that should include that patch:

https://build.opensuse.org/package/show … _git/conky

However, I didn't add any epoch, so it won't automatically upgrade over HOAS's package, so you'll have to remove his first if you want to test mine.

Sounds good and I will try out your -legacy package. So I then just merely remove and not purge Hoas' package then install yours?

I can also test the patched  conky 1.10 to see how it works too.

Re: conky v1.9.0-6 for BunsenLabs Helium

I have separated conky out into it's own repository to stop inadvertent downgrades when using other packages (thanks to damo for spotting that problem):

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

If you have used the old repository, change "Helium" in the URL to "conky" and it should work (you may have to add the key again).

I will edit the OP...

EDIT: Done!

The conky package in my "Helium" repository is now gone so the X-apps I am working on can be installed without fear of conky molestation.

Re: conky v1.9.0-6 for BunsenLabs Helium

So ... for Debian 8:

/etc/apt/sources.list.d/xed.list
==
deb http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/Head_on_a_Stick:/Helium/Debian_8.0/ /

is still good for the X Files? (pun intended)

Re: conky v1.9.0-6 for BunsenLabs Helium

^ Yes, any other packages are unaffected.

I thought it best to quarantine conky because the epoch will always make it appear newer to APT, no matter which version Debian is pushing out.
