If you mean to line up multiple conky functions horizontally, in a single line - say across the top of a screen - then it's as simple as lining up the individual conky's function text commands into single text line, in the config file (using keyboard's backspace). I.e.;

Code:
${do this=do that}
${look like this=look like that}


...change to;

Code:
${do this=do that} ${look like this=look like that}


...should work. And of course, changing the space between the individual commands determines the space between how they are displayed - IOW;
Code:

${do this=do that}                             ${look like this=look like that}


...will spread them out wider as compared to the previous example.

If that's what you meant?! Smile

Hi, Puppus.

Just saw your post, sorry for the lateness.

It's pretty much as Moat described.

The settings part of your conky config file remains basically the same.
You may want to fiddle with the font size, though. The smaller it is, the more info you
can put on the line.
Also, position line set to top_middle or bottom_middle produces a nice effect. Saves
you a lot of figuring out for x and y parameters, too.

Then to the TEXT part. That's were you control the info that appears on the line.
Start with removing the carriage returns in the TEXT part, and you have a super-long
line. After that, it's a matter of cutting out the unwanted info until the line fits the
width of your screen.

Pic and config file for pekwm attached.

Finally, if you have a conky config file not named .conkyrc, and not located at /root,
make sure you call it with the -c parameter, for example
Code:
conky -c /root/.config/1-line-conky-blabla

You may want to add the -d parameter to activate the conky daemon, so you have
Code:
conky -d -c /root/.config/1-line-conky-blabla

Finally, if you make the above command line into a script saved, say, in
/root/my-applications/bin, and link that script in /root/Startup, your conky one-liner will
start at the same time as your Puppy.

Best regards.

thank you, musher0 and Moat.

where's the file in a jwm setup? (searched and found only the pwidget stuff--am i looking in the right place? ...it seems i have acquired a conkyconfig zip, which i suppose contains what i'm looking for...)

musher, could your pekwm file be used in a puppy running JWM?

thanks in advance.

....

i'm not sure what conkies are floating around--i had 1.72 and 1.8.1 on my machine (also presumably in my repo--suppose i could check...nope, but there now) and the 172 killed the ability to right click on the desktop, so for anyone using precise 561 (all i've tested so far), i recommend the 181, which did not.


is killing conky through the terminal the only way to shut it off?


is a whizbang shebang deal (whatever "#!" is called) atop the config file along with
Code:
conky -d -c /root/.config/1-line-conky-blabla

enough to make it activate with a click or should that bit of code be its own file?


thanks again...

Hello, Puppus.

Since some of your questions are somewhat off-thread here, I've answered your post at
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=780599#780599
which is devoted to the conky-1.9 published on May 3rd 2014.

It's called a "crunch-bang"! Smile

See you on the other thread!

BFN.

musher0

that's for the redirect, updated software, and vocabulary.

thought "crunch bang" was a distro. (one that looked pretty good from what i remember).

apologies to all.

No problem. The distro is named after the expression: you can see it in its logo.

I reckon Apple have been looking at some of the designs you guys have posted in this thread...

see their new 'flattened' offering:

My desktop is 4.1.2 barebones with added programs, fonts, wallpaper, and general eye-candy. What started out as a 58 meg OS is now only 97 megs after a remaster. This has everything that I need for daily use; well almost. Here's a pic. Enjoy.

Hi, cypher.

Is there a way to dissociate the girl from her background? (where is that tongue-in-cheek icon?) Wink

New system, new wallpaper. 1024x768 resolution (I prefer widescreen but didn't get it here Sad ).

Wallpaper is called "Fox Eyes". I forget where I got it, but it was one of many many many free-wallpaper sites out there. Puppy is X-Slacko 1.1 PAE with XFCE. I've set the Menu icon to one of the included but non-default XFCE menu icons. The bottom tray / panel / whatever is set to hex color #884400, with Alpha set at 50%. Iconset is "Noir Crystal" from the XFCE-Look website... post if you want that iconset -- it's an XFCE one tho -- because unarchiving it from XFCE-Look requires a multiuser OS for some weird users/permissions reason. (I suspect it was archived on Xubuntu -- at any rate, I had to boot an Ubuntu LiveCD to get it unarchived!)

That's about it, customization-wise.
