Re: Conky - Calendars / Clocks / Time

But 'ncal -M' isn't conky, it's from "man ncal", not to be confused with Mann, which we both are.  big_smile

You're welcome. Greetings to all.

Looks like I was wrong.

mobilediesel's calendar, which is already here, is horizontal or vertical and with the "lang" file multi-lingual.  It also has a fixed width; 31 days - filling in what is necessary depending on the length of a month.

Nice to see a new script on the block.  Grabbing that now.  Thanks for sharing ututo!

NOTE:  I keep saying mobilediesel, but really it's by "ans" - just heavily tweaked by mobilediesel.

Re: Conky - Calendars / Clocks / Time

Ooooooooooooo I found a few old ones here that I had never really looked at played with until yesterday.

This is a really nice LUA "flipclock".  The original has hours 1 to 12 AM/PM and minutes, so it only has two "flippers"
Being a 24 hour man and wanting seconds I GIMPed the images (did ya hear that damo??) and tweaked the code.

The original looks like this:
mCgAjMek.jpg
The "black line" image is inserted with an "overlay" LUA script.  First time I have seen it - even though it's been here in an archived file forever it seems.

And my tweaked version looks like this, notice the conky window is a bit tighter to the images:
fhHJajqp.jpg

The original archive is: flipclock_by_blitz_bomb-d5ydsbd.zip so I would guess blitz_bomb is the author if not the person that at least .ZIPped it.  So credit to blitz_bomb for this and wlourf for the text.lua.  The overlay.lua has no known author.

Be careful /with/the/paths in the archive: flipclock.tar.gz - I've redone it to include my tweaks and images and I must admit another reason for the "3xflippers" with HH:MM:SS is a second conky could be done to show DD MM YY or MM DD YY or YY MM DD depending on where you live and or preference.  smile

Re: Conky - Calendars / Clocks / Time

And yet another flipclock type conky although it doesn't look like a flip clock..  With lua and again with the overlay.lua that puts the two dots and the shaded areas in the numbers.
5GKLsMgJ.jpg

Now I don't particularly like this one because of the way it does things.  I'm going to work on a tweak of this to redo it without the bash script.  Mclock.tar.gz has the original "archive file" in it as well.  The dot in the lower left = PM - oh how that will change here.  big_smile

I can see a LOT of uses for the overlay.lua script though.  Ideas are forming, unfortunately I'm not up with GIMP like some around there so I'll just have to 'find the images"  I want to use.

Re: Conky - Calendars / Clocks / Time

Well, I am getting the same errors you get unklar:

  $ /media/5/conky/sapristi

Conky: llua_do_call: function conky_main execution failed: /media/5/conky/sapristi/gauges.lua:18: attempt to perform arithmetic on a nil value

I cannot find the "function conky_" in a few of the LUA files:

See this
mrpeachy - You ROCK ON!

Specifically this part:

function conky_main()

This is our main function and the one we will set in the conkyrc for lua_draw_hook. If you open a lua script and not sure which function to set in conkyrc, look for conky_ in the function name.

In my test conky:

lua_load /media/5/conky/sapristi/global.lua
lua_draw_hook_pre conky_main
  ## function conky_main()
#lua_load /media/5/conky/sapristi/clock.lua
#lua_draw_hook_pre conky_clock_applet

#lua_load /media/5/conky/sapristi/clock_text.lua
#lua_draw_hook_pre clock_text_applet

#lua_load /media/5/conky/sapristi/functions.lua
#lua_draw_hook_pre   ## function conky_something() does NOT EXIST

#lua_load /media/5/conky/sapristi/conf.lua
#lua_draw_hook_pre   ## function conky_something() does NOT EXIST

#lua_load /media/5/conky/sapristi/gauges.lua
#lua_draw_hook_pre  ## function conky_something() does NOT EXIST

## -- NOT USED
#lua_load /media/5/conky/sapristi/battery.lua
#lua_draw_hook_pre conky_batt

Notice the error is in guages ... and ## function conky_something() does NOT EXIST


RE: Time displayed - the 2 LUA clock scripts that sapristi is using show time in 2 formats:

  • clock.lua - shows time in a 12 hour AM/PM format - you are using my 24Hour image behind it.  smile

  • clock_text.lua - shows the time in 24 hour format.

Change the clock_text.lua to use AM/PM time ( %I vs %H ) unless you change the "clock.lua" itself to one that can use 24 hour time.

Re: Conky - Calendars / Clocks / Time

Oh I did that because I'm interested too, and the 12 hour clock faces I have here were really old and well not do good.  What really nice is that mrpeachy's work lives on and in the conky creator's own blog as well.

BTW: I had some more 'offline' time again yesterday so I worked on some 24 hour clock faces.

I start off with the International Conkystadors Clock: aO1EaDxX.jpg
and then I got serious.

This bLcSbFDO.jpgbecame this EkMLsMQb.jpg

Because I'm not good enough with GIMP to delete the hands and reconstruct the clock itself.

But another one worked out fairly well.

This 2coiBrGh.jpgbecame this TWpE8m3g.jpg

And last but not least

This JbJ1dNMT.jpgbecame 3Rmkll5E.jpg.

So there are a few more options now.

And for anyone that wants 12 hour clock faces with 24 hour notations as well:

Re: Conky - Calendars / Clocks / Time

Howdy from Texas to the many talented conky coders on this forum!

This forum looks just right for the following request. In error I posted this in the weather scripts forum. I apologize for the incorrect forum post.

I am really fond of the following chronographs and would like to see if I can get the scripts for these.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Conky - Calendars / Clocks / Time

They are all mine, and I've been looking for them.  smile

The top one is one that was tweaked by DiderT over on the FR-Ubuntu forum and a French version of it can be found at ConkyPitStop if you want to try it before I find mine.

It's REALLY bothering me that I can't fine them.
The bottom three are just different tweaks of the same chronograph.

I WILL FIND THEM ... I WILL FIND THEM ... I WILL FIND THEM ... I WILL FIND THEM ...
I WILL ... I WILL ... !!!  big_smile


This is the first time I've not been able to find something.

^ My solution to this problem is, for several years, all my machines have a /DATA partition. This has the vfat file system and is usually about 100GB large.
For new installations this DATA always gets an entry in the fstab in each OS.

If I find new or important things for me by the example of the Conky, then that is stored there in the DATA in the respective directory.
Synchronously keep I  it all with unison, resulting in the same version on the four machines my family
exists.

I have to do the same with "videos" as well.  Not sure why but not going to complain as it's FREE.

Great minds think alike.  I have three installs there
sda1 & 2 = #! following Wheezy
sda3 = SWAP - never used
sda5 = a 200GB data partition - all personal stuff (ie: Conky)
sda6 & 7 = a test BL install
sda8 & 9 = this working BL install (stated as the Alpha install)
sda10 = 150GB data partition - general storage area

Every install uses /media/5 and /media/10 - and like you my same conkys are seen by all installs.

That's why I have the first line in my conkys like this:

pkill -xf "conky -c /media/5/Conky/test.conky" &

run them or kill them from anywhere!

My solution to this problem is, for several years, all my machines have a /DATA partition. This has the vfat file system and is usually about 100GB large.
For new installations this DATA always gets an entry in the fstab in each OS.

If I find new or important things for me by the example of the Conky, then that is stored there in the DATA in the respective directory.
Synchronously keep I  it all with unison, resulting in the same version on the four machines my family
exists.

Good idea. I do something similar with my systems - although they still are independent of each other. I create a var/local/data directory on all my systems where I store stuff. I should take that to the next level and create a symbolic link to each system's /var/local/data directory for using the find and grep tools on the system I use as my desktop.

I also have a library/repository of tons of stuff on my main linux file server that I keep splices of code, system elements ( fonts. icons, etc) and of course videos, multimedia, pictures, documents, etc. My problem is that I have many backups from older systems where I've not moved those files from the backup directory to the library/repository. I also have stuff on external USB drives that get added when I'm on the road working that most of the time don't get moved/added to the library.

Speaking to myself "It's called discipline Robert!"

a vfat partition that large???
yikes
even usb sticks are factory formatted with ntfs these days...
if you need windows compatibility i'd rather use ntfs.
otherwise, what's keeping you from using ext4.

man filesystems
