Thanks to VinDSL for the work put in on the custom Conky/ Conkywx.

I have looked at https://goo.gl/pn6SOS. That being said, the start of the post is nearly 5 years old. For example, it looks as though Conkywx 5 now includes the required fonts.

Would it be possible to get an up to date concise step by step set of instructions for installation and configuration?


Killer custom implementation of Conky!


Cheers,

Thanks to VinDSL! Your conky setup looks absolutely gorgeous.

One more request:

Could you please tell me where to find your Peppermint logo with white font color?

Hi Dingo1213, and welcome to the forum :)

Here you go, have the logo with white text as an SVG (vector graphic) that you can open ANY size you like in the GIMP, the save it in any format the GIMP can export to with a transparent background such as PNG.
(you can't see the text well here, but it is there :) )

Thank you, Dingo1213, and welcome aboard ! 

Only place it resides is on my machine(s), but I'll upload it to my production server, so you can download it. 

Here ya go ...





Yes, it's really there (off-white text on transparent background)  LoL !   :D

Just right-click on the red Peppermint graphic (above) and 'save image as'.  You'll get the whole thing.

And, here's the line that loads the Peppermint logo in my .conkyrc ...


Code: [Select]
${voffset -1}${image /home/vindsl/.conky/logos/peppermint_logo_small.png -n}${voffset 18}${goto 45}${font Ubuntu-B:bold:size=7.55}${color5}${font Ubuntu-B:bold:size=7.55}${color5}Conkywx ${execpi 1800 conkywx -v}${goto 180}Conky ${conky_version}${font}${voffset -5}


EDIT


Heh !  Mark beat me to it.

Choose your poison ...   8)

I know... Welcome to 2016, right?  ;D

I've been scraping weather stats off of METAR & Wunderground for many years, for use in my Conky script.

METAR is still working fine, but Intellicast merged with Wunderground recently and they decided to start charging PWS users for access to their forecasting API. If one wants to display Wunderground forecasting now, they need to pay a hefty fee, and I mean hefty. It ain't cheap. Needless to say, Joe Blow, who lives two blocks away, isn't going to pay thousands of dollars to provide you with free weather forecasts.

As a result of this major shakeup, in the underground weather world, I've started scraping weather forecasts off of MSN Weather and so far it's working great [knock on wood].

Just saying, in case anyone else is having probs finding weather forecasts...

I'd turn off updates now if I were you :P .. didn't your mom ever tell you it's not nice to point out peoples disfigurements, you'll be taking the piss outa my clown sized feet next ::)



BTW, the new 'candy' is attached below (as an SVG) should anyone wanna incorporate it.
(both with and without the dropshadow)

As before, you can open them any size you like in GIMP. then save them as say a PNG or JPG, etc.

If anyone wants the Peppermint text, just let me know.
