I have some conkies using the 1d_accuweather_rss script. That still seems to work. I guess because it's using the weather fonts rather than actual picture files for the weather conditions?

Good question. :happy:
I don't know anything about it yet and it also works excellently here. Maybe so long, until Accuweather also puts a "good cookie" on it, as the Sector11 said.

But you should note that TBG reorganized the packet on 28-9-17 and since then it is called 1_accuweather_RSS ;)

@eadwine

you should shorten your update time. https://forum.mxlinux.org/viewtopic.php ... 10#p461891
I had already pointed this out once. I was there a zero too much slipped in :bagoverhead:

Code: Select all

...
TEXT
##### Start #####
${execi 6000 bash $HOME/1_accuweather/1_accuweather -f2015 -h2015}

is correct

Seems like this weather conky is freezing the standard one I have on the desktop randomly so I have to kill them all and restart.

I have not let the weather conky start for a number of days now, and my basic conky doesn't freeze anymore.

So.. there is something wrong happening with the weather one.

Could it be that adjusted update time?

What does your basic Conky look like?

Please show me the terminal output of the basic Conky and the weather Conky.

Normal conky:

Code: Select all

$ conky -c /home/eadwine/.conkyrc
conky: desktop window (1a00003) is subwindow of root window (290)
conky: window type - override
conky: drawing to created window (0x5c00001)
conky: drawing to double buffer

and the weather conky:

Code: Select all

eadwine@mx17.1-eadwine:~
$ conky -c /home/eadwine/eadwine/conkyrc9
conky: Syntax error (/home/eadwine/eadwine/conkyrc9:3: '=' expected near 'yes') while reading config file. 
conky: Assuming it's in old syntax and attempting conversion.
conky: desktop window (1a00003) is subwindow of root window (290)
conky: window type - normal

Nothing wrong with the normal conky, it has been running on my system literally for years.

@eadwine

the problem is, MX17 runs Conky version 1.10
in the Conky Manager all configurations are in 1.9 and are represented by a "trick".

Either - Or :lipsrsealed:
- You bring the Weather Conky into the Conky Manager
- You rewrite the weather Conky from 1.9 to 1.10 and shut down the Conky Manager
- You are using this 1.10 version of the Weather Conky :happy:

I don't even use the conky manager.. I found it a hassle and difficult *giggle* I don't switch easily from methods known ;)


Rewrite from 1.9 to 1.10 when you say I am using 1.10?

More confuzzled.
