I have noticed you can have different conkies running at the same time on different desktops. For example with MX conky started on desktop 2, you can choose a different conky for it. A bit counter intuitive but you would choose for it to run on desktop 1. MX Conky considers desktop 1 the one you are in. Pretty cool.

Works for a single session, but don't think it will survive a suspend, logout or reboot.

Sorry I haven't been giving much input in recent days.

I'm just back from my holidays only to find I have electrical problems which are causing the circuit breaker to trip. Luckily it's limited to just a small area of the house, but that area includes my desktop computer, wifi router, NAS and printer.

Won't have much time this weekend to play around with the beta 1 or the conkies, although I'm pretty chuffed that the Asq-Clock conky seems to be a happy compromise for various sized screens and even hidpi displays.

It survived a logout on my machine.

I have sent up a new data pack, and hope I got all the changes. It will not be moved to .conky automatically, since the folder is already populated, so people willing to test the new default will need to empty that folder and launch MX Conky.

Here is a modified MX-KoO if any one wants to try it. The logo at the top is the standard MX logo and you would need to point to it on your system. The first line under CPU needs to be edited for your system. The network information needs to be modified with your network nomenclature. Under Disks I have added my Data partition. You can edit it if you have one or delete it.
I have retained lines from the original in most cases but commented them out with # before the line. The code may still have extraneous items that are not needed, but renders correctly.

Code: Select all

background no
use_xft yes
font Terminus:size=11
xftalpha 0.5
update_interval 1
total_run_times 0
own_window yes
own_window_type normal

own_window_hints undecorated,below,skip_taskbar,skip_pager
double_buffer yes
#default_bar_size 0 6
 
maximum_width 350
draw_shades no
draw_outline no
draw_borders no
draw_graph_borders no
default_color 58BDED

gap_x 5
#gap_y 240

We are going to add the nice antiX-17 conky to the default collection--I have received permission and guidance from anti (thanks!). Not sure about some of the particulars but we can figure it out.

Not only is it excellent by itself, but its codes offer nice possibilities for revising our default collection in the future by ANYONE EXCEPT ME.

Everything is always ten times more involved than you think when you first start...

Regrets, I've had a few
But then again, too few to mention
I did what I had to do
And saw it through without exemption

Yes, there were times, I'm sure you knew
When I bit off more than I could chew
But through it all, when there was doubt
I ate it up and spit it out
I faced it all and I stood tall
And did it my way

<Now starting with the B2 collection.>

I seem to have put the wrong version of the new antiX conky in, since wifi at least looks all screwed up. Here is the script that works on my testing machine with B2 (adjust the interface names if necessary), if you want to replace the contents of ~/.conky/MX-antiX/MX-antiX17
