Lol yeah. conky is kinda hard to configure on your own. Its just a text file you edit, and then keep running again and killing again, until it displays just the way you like it. total pain in the ass.

so, i suggest just simply visit this link: [link]
within the download's archived contents you will find different conky text files for each of the boxes/frames. just run each of those. I cannot recall the command for running multiple conky text files separately, but i am sure it must be written somewhere within that link's download package. Just adjust the X and the Y values so that the boxes/frames align properly the way you want them to. Forgive me if my instructions are not as detailed; I haven't used ubuntu in a while so I do not remember now :(

lol man... np.. thanks a lot :D
that adobe air app is pretty good indeed but im just sad to see that there isn't a default linux app or screenlet that is as good as this.

btw... im gonna be releasing the custom skins for the screenlets pretty soon right after this Tuesday

Hum, have seen you using quite much that conky thing.. although i didn't understand what it was, but i think it is like Samurize for Windows right ?

peace

BilliShere Featured By Owner Nov 7, 2008
well um the conky thing is sort of a sensor thing i guess... you can have it check your email, keep track of cpu, mem, hard drive space etc... its strictly text though...this is the best it can get i guess.... sort of a display sensor thingy.. lol.
samurize on the other hand is waaay more customizable and isn't really as resource intensive as conky simply because its more complex and intended for many different uses.

sorry for double reply, edit comments, would be good.

i'm now running cairo-dock to do almost all the work, the CD Case you see on my newest screenie is a Applet for cairo-dock, but you can use it on the desktop ;), too bad it doesn't show the Title/artist of songs :D

Wow, looks ULTRA cool! I'd suggest you only to change the conky's fonts, they simply don't match the others.

fav'd!

BilliShere Featured By Owner Sep 30, 2008
yeah i didnt bother changing it from the original. and all the fonts i have look like crap (unsmoothed of course) at small size.
