The conky is suppose to show the standings in the American League of Major League Baseball. The names of the teams are showing up doubled and
there are no stats. It should look the website, basically.

Re: Conky Helps and Stuff

Thanks for the changes. When I tried the original URL it went to the website you provided. Must be defaulted to the new site. Changed the URL and get the output on the screen. (Unfortunately I can't see your Conky-Screenshot again) I screen capture with the default tools provided by MX and every tim...

No dude, that's on topic. I still intend to go using my Inspiron 3847 in a different capacity, just not my main machine. I'll give this a shot.
Ditto. Thanks for the tip. It's worth a shot.

Ok I am lazy so I am not going to read through all the pages of posts.. it might already have been suggested. I see you use nvidia and have an xorg.conf file? Rename that file and see if that helps stuff.
I've had two computers perform the lock up and both are running AMD video cards.

Re: System freezes - what to do?

Not sure if this thread was solved. I'm running an Acer Aspire and it too locks/freezes randomly. Usually after I have left the laptop for a bit. I thought perhaps it was the screensaver as it would not respond to keys or mouse. Shut it off and left the screen to do nothing and it too froze. The mac...

What is the point of setting full quotes here and posting pictures (200x90) that no human being can recognize?
Good question. Used Screenshot to grab the Thunar image. Never had the image turn out that small before. Sorry if this annoyed you.

Re: Conky Helps and Stuff

What is involved in converting the file? This is one of the files I have in the directory /home/dexter/1_acuweather FIrst, your folder in $HOME/dexter should be "1_accuweather" with 2 "c"s . As for conversion, there is actually a lua script to convert from old conky syntax to new syntax, but not th...
