Conky Google Now by satya164 Conky Google Now by satya164
Conky in Google Now Style, a part of the Numix Project.

The font used is "Open Sans Light"

The wallpaper used in the screenshot is from fav.me/d5ujtpj

It includes 3 styles, light, dark and transparent.

Installation Instructions


1. First install "conky" if you don't have it, also ensure that you have "curl" installed.

2. Extract contents of the archive into your home folder.

3. Open the file ".conkyrc" with a text editor, search for "2294941" and replace it with the WOEID of your own location. To find your WOEID, browse or search for your city from the Yahoo Weather home page . The WOEID is in the URL for the forecast page for that city.

4. Add "conky" to your Startup Applications.

5. Enjoy!

Could you possibly send the link for the wallpaper again? The link is dead.

Once I set this up, I find many of my keyboard shortcuts sometimes stop working.  I am not certain all the cases but if I click on an empty part of the window, it solves the issue. Does anyone else experience this issue or know how to prevent it (running Ubuntu 14.04)?

Also, when running this, I noticed a few errors.  First, there is a stray line in the transparent rc files that I think should be removed: F9F9F9.  Second, I noticed the error: `Conky: one or more $endif's are missing`.  I had a look at the .conkyrc and noticed you have 8 if statements: `${if_existing /proc/net/route_*}` and only 6 end if statements: `${endif}`.  By adding 2 more end if statements, the error was eliminated. 

Lastly, I would actually recommend keeping the rc files for the different backgrounds (light, dark, transparent, v2) in one folder (perhaps the .conky-google-now folder) then creating a soft link to them: `ln -s .conky-goole-now/.conkyrc-transparent .conkyrc`. This keeps all your files contained and provides a simple way to switch the background while keeping the files useful name differentiation.

Thanks for this.  This is my first time using conky.  I ran it once before putting your rc file in my home directory.  I was impressed by much of the info shown there.  Is there an easy way to run multiple conky windows?  One with the weather and network info from yours and another with more system info?

I hope this not be a bother to you, but I made a mod of your great conky.rc, adding support for other languages (using openweather)...

Hi,
I switched out the Network Stats for an RSS Feed from my Google news page, but the links aren't appearing?
changes to the .conkyrc file: pastebin.com/AHhUFHk9
news.py: pastebin.com/tnHJvcYX
When the Network statistics widget was running it said I was disconnected(when my internet was running fine).
Also there was this output from my terminal when I ran "killall conky" this was outputted:
pastebin.com/pZ1YzW6m

You need to install the "Open Sans" font to make it look correct.

You probably don't have the Open Sans Font installed.

Nice conky, I really like it!

Just a little remark: when I start it the terminal it says: 
  Conky: one or more $endif's are missing

I don't know if that's a bug. It works perfectly, though.

Why is it looking in the /.cache folder for the weather images? In fact, no images at all are showing. It's just a white box....

:iconsatya164:

Coz it copies the relevant images to .cache

The following is for the .conkyrc-2 (but it probably applies to all of them)
First, it rocks!
Second, you were 2 endif short which was messing with any extra additions at the end
Third, the icons offset was all wrong for me, but it fixed when I removed the first {voffset -20}. Any idea why?
