Hello KoO,
thank you for your help. ;)

Do you have image.lua in your ~/LUA directory?

Did you download the archive file attached to my post and extract it to your home folder?

Run conky from terminal to see the error messages.

[added] or you didn't install jq and /or curl.

Code: Select all

conky: Syntax error (/home/mx1/.conkyrc:3: unexpected symbol near '#') while reading config file. 
conky: Assuming it's in old syntax and attempting conversion.
conky: desktop window (1e00003) is subwindow of root window (e8)
conky: window type - normal
conky: drawing to created window (0x5000001)
conky: drawing to double buffer
I donn't see anything on line 3 that is any different than the other uncommented lines.

The conky jumps from a 4 day to a five day forecast every second.

jq and curl are both installed

Those lines are fine, as they indicate that the new conky 1.10 has noted that line 3 starts with

#, etc etc

meaning that it's likely to be in the older conky 1.9 syntax, and it's converting/reading the script accordingly. Not an issue.

What error msgs come after those lines?


Could you post the whole of your amended conky with your location? If you are not comfortable displaying your new API key, pls post the whole text of conky via PM.

Lines 57 and 58 must include the question mark just before your API key and city code.

Also, did you save the

/.conky-google-now-Openweather

folder of weather images with the dot in front of the rest of the folder name?

Weather Conky is up and running. Will play with the colour and the background that is being used, but to start, here is an png.

With all the new instructions and such being one big garble (I have no idea what to follow anymore), is there a sure way to get this conky running?

Even with the other conkies that are there and not interfering with each other?

I'm using the Conky Manager and palced the .conkyrc file in the .conky directory. Open the Conky Manager, use the gears on the right side of the toolbar and make sure where the .conkyrc file is placed is in the directories where Conky Manager looks for these files. Once changed, click on the Circular Arrow on the toolbar. There is a progress bar that goes back and forth, and this could take some time to complete.

Once all of this stops, you should be able to locate and then click on the box to activate it.

The icons that are suggested need to be in the right directory (.conky-google....) I also found that down near the bottom of the script, where it grabs the kernel number, and other items qbout the computer, you need to change the home directory from tuaz to your own. I got caught with not changing and it just doesn't work, unless your home directory is tuaz!

I did have some troubles, but it did come around. I think you need to let it also record some data for a bit to give you your readings, at least that was my take on it.

Eadwine rose, my instructions here :

https://forum.mxlinux.org/viewtopic.php ... 90#p452190

Are complete and unchanged from before. And they relate to the weather section.

The part that smiliken says has some file paths that need to be changed relates to the text portion below the weather portion, and which I had already said in my earlier post could be removed if all you wanted was the weather part.

Smiliken's issues with the weather part went away with no further changes from me or him. Probably just needed some time for the information and selected weather icons to be generated and to populate a cache folder.

I assumed that you won't be using Conky Manager. You can save the conky itself anywhere. It's the weather icons folder that should not have its folder location changed unless you want to amend all references to it in the conky.
