Conkies library with a Conky-Selector-tool with thumbnails ?

It would be cool, for less technical people, if we had a library of 10 to 20 conkies (we choose the ones people love the most... Stocks ticker, Weather, etc)

So people who launch that "Conky-selector-tool" that would show somekind of thumbnail/pict of the conkies.

If the user choose it, it enable that conky...

Re: Conkies library with a Conky-Selector-tool with thumbnails ?

^ Good idea, and it is something we are considering. It is not trivial to do though, and there are more important things to do just now.

But we will work on it when there is time wink

HINT: Anyone can try producing a script though! It could use some of the ideas from bl-obthemes.

Re: Conkies library with a Conky-Selector-tool with thumbnails ?

Oops just saw that post :
https://forums.bunsenlabs.org/viewtopic.php?id=6461

So the tool is there, sorry I missed it.... We only have to try them to see (no thunmbnail but still cool it's there..)

NOte : not weather, stocks ticker, clock etc  but 50% of the work is done LOL

Conky
A huge subject, with almost infinite possibilities. The Bunsenlabs forum is probably the best Conky resource on the web, where the experts hang out: Show us your Conky

The Conky can be changed with the Conky Chooser script:    Menu -> Preferences -> Conky, and you can add your own to ~/.config/conky/
Multiple conkys can be run together and saved as a conky session, which is started at login.

Menu -> Help & Resources -> Conky provides links for configuration.

It is not forum etiquette to say that, although sometimes it is hard to resist! In your case I can see that you are making a good effort in a language which is foreign to you, which, to me, is very impressive smile
