Description:

Futuristic Conky V2.3

Displays graphically individual cpu usuage, core temps, GPU temp, motherboard temp (north bridge), fan speeds, disk usuage, diskio, RAM, ethernet upspeed and downspeed.

Very low on resources. 0 - 1% cpu and 2 - 3 MiB memory (absolute not percentage).


Conky based on Future Conky 2.1 by hfcf.

To install just move or copy the ' .Conky ' hidden folder to you user/HOME folder.

Do not forget to install the fonts!!!

To put conky to start with the system go to ' startup applications ' and add in the ' command ' the file ' .Conky/future_conky/start_conky.sh '

Used Script further modified by me:

' Rings with Sectors ' by wlourf


hwmon arguements for core temp, GPU temp motherboard temp and fan speeds will need to be adjusted according to your setup. (install and run lm-sensors )
diskio is set up for for 2 hard disks who' s arguements may need changing for your setup.
CPU parameters are for quad-core processor and will need adjusting for other such numbered-cores.
I have removed weather scripts, prayer times and clock. If you prefer this I have left Futuristic Conky 2.2.1intact at
http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Futuristic+Conky?content=151021

It is worth looking at the comments there for troubleshooting.

The new clock in the image is Revulutionary Mini clock 1.0.2 and can be found at

Enjoy!!!

the lua script needs needss to be modified for the correct conky commands

/.Conky/future_conky/sector_rings.lua

{
name="hwmon 2",
arg="temp 1",

the parameters between quotation marks needs changing. i.e hwmon2 to possibly acpi and temp 1 to whatever is appropriate (if all else fails could try backslash). I never used acpi so not aware of the conky command for it.

the paramethers inside the lua script are not set up. set up sensors ( sudo sensors-detect ) then run sensors to determine what you have in terms of hardware temps and fans. you wil have to adjust the name='' and arg='' parameters for your system. see post above dated 7th june.

Actually, the problem was running the script as root. :S The $HOME was directing the loading of the LUA script incorrectly.

Thank you though for the sensor setup tip though, current my sensors are only showing a few temp readings. This might help. :)

1. run (copy and paste) the following into a terminal.


conky -c $HOME/.Conky/future_conky/conkyrc1 &


2. if it doesnt work then check you have unzipped into the correct directory.

ls $HOME/.Conky/future_conky/

it should output
conkyrc1
fonts
pix
sector_rings.lua
start_conky.sh

if not then you not extracted the download into the correct area. the .Conky folder needs to be under your Home folder.

3. if above is ok and number 1 is still not working.
then check you have all the conky packages

sudo apt-get install conky-all

hwmon 2 temp 1 for me is the graphics card temperature. do you have a separate graphics card or an integrated one.

make sure you have lm-sensors installed and have run detect-sensors.

open the following file in a text editor (such as gedit or kate).

/.Conky/future_conky/sector_rings.lua

from line 38 to 65 you wiill see the following:
{
name="hwmon 2",
arg="temp 1",
max=90,
xc=163.5,
yc=220.5,
start_angle=-150,
end_angle=150,
thickness=13,
radius=22,
sectors=32,
gap_sectors=1,
bg_colour1={{0,0xFFFFFF,0}},
bg_colour2={{1,0xFFFFFF,0}},
fg_colour1={{0,0xFFFFFF,1.0}},
fg_colour2={{0,0xff3300,1}},
xtp=152,
ytp=249,
caption=' °C',
inverse_arc=true,
border_size= 0,
fill_sector=false,
background=false,
foreground=true,
bd_colour1={{0,0xFFFFFF,0}},
bd_colour2={{0,0xFFFFFF,0}},
draw_me=true,
},

either delete it all or edit it out by putting --[[ before and ]] after it
once you get it working you could output some thing else here to use up the space. such as the HDD temps

then try to run the conky in terminal with

If it still doesn't work then
look in /sys/class/hwmon/hwmon0/device

you should have some files referring to your Core temps such as

Core0 , Core1, Core2, Core3 or
temp1, temp2, temp3, temp4 or
something else

mine were temp2, temp3, temp4, temp5 and that's what Futuristic Conky is based on.


and change the arguments for the hwmon0 "temp x" for whatever is in your system
e.g
name="hwmon 0",
arg="temp 2", <---change this line
max=90,

repeat for all the cores - hwmon 0 . save the file and run

conky -c $HOME/.Conky/future_conky/config/conkyrc1 &

if still not working repeat above for hwmon 1 which is your motherboard.

if still cant get it to work post output of
sensors in a terminal.

glad you got it sorted.

(you could output other data in place of the fans)
