Conky Metro Clock by satya164 Conky Metro Clock by satya164
Conky Metro Clock is a minimalist conky configuration which resembles the Metro Style clock appearing in the Windows 8 screensaver. The font used is "Open Sans Light".

Nothing fancy. Just shows date and time.

---

Installation Instructions:

1. First install conky if you don't have it.

2. Extract the files .conkyrc and .conky_start.sh to your home folder.

3. Run "chmod +x ~/.conky_start.sh" in a Terminal.

3. Add ~/.conky_start.sh to your Startup Applications.

4. Enjoy!

How do you do to have a first uppercase ?
I've seen a lot of conky themes with the date with an uppercase but I can't find how to do it.
I tried to put uppercase to yes but I put all the caps in uppercase.

You can run two conky configs side by side. Just search the interwebz and you can find.

I added this one to my collection on GitHub (github.com/gld1982ltd/conky-ma… for Conky Manager (Homepage - teejeetech.blogspot.in/p/conky…

You may find some more in there too.. I am working on adding licenses and will add the authors' names to the README.md as well. I love this stuff!

I didn't have the required font, I downloaded it from : [link]

To fix the tansparancy issue, this solution worked for me (solution by Nawmtaronyu)

Add the following two lines right after the # Window specifications proprety in the ~/.conkyrc file

own_window_argb_visual yes
own_window_argb_value 200

Amazing theme btw, I <3 it.

I am getting a black background on the skin when I run it, not transparent, I am not sure how to fix this. 13.04 Ubuntu, I am running compizconfig settings manager to have my wallpaper across my 3 monitors. if that may be causing the problem.

Also it is on my left most monitor and Id like to have it on centre screen, not exactly sure how to to do this.

I use this on my laptop and it runs and looks perfect! really want to get it working on desktop too.

I have installed it but I have noticed that there's a flickering each time I click on the desktop!
If there's a way to fix that ?

It doesn't appear on my desktop... (even after logging out and in again). When running the bash script from terminal it did appear once, but the background behind it was a part of a window that I had open at that time. (like if I used a screenshot as wallpaper only on that piece of my desktop). Verry strange...

Fixed it by changing

# Window specifications
own_window no
own_window_class override

I didn't really know exactly what I was doing, but I just tried to change some thins to see what it did. And it worked. :D

It now does appear, but in a black box. And when I do "Show Desktop" or just Ctrl+super+D, it also minimizes.

I had same problem. Delaying startup of conky by adding "-P 50" to the end of the conky startup command did the trick.

We can say anything about Microsoft's Metro style UI.
Still we gotta admit, it looks stylish.

Definitely give it a try on my HDTV.
+1 for that!

I'm a noob at this stuff so be aware. Can this be done in Ubuntu 12.04? I did the sudo apt-get install conky in the terminal and it worked but then when I download the file you provide, it just has a read me and a preview picture. Where is the .conkyrc and .conk_start.sh that I am supposed to add to my home folder?

You need to enable hidden files.

Nautilus > View > Show Hidden Files

Or press Ctrl+H

I don't see a folder named Conky or .conky or anything like that. Is it a file or are the files in a folder in the home? Sorry I'm such a noob.

Extract the zip file and press Ctrl+H. You will see the files. You need to place them in your home directory.

Ok. I see now. I thought you meant Ctrl+H in my home directory and would see the files there. I figured it out and it looks awesome! Thanks for helping me.

All right, now for a serious questions since I figured the main part of it out. How can I move it around. It's nice on the bottom left but sometimes it looks better on the top right or bottom right. Also, can I change the color of the text?

If you open the .conkyrc file in a text editor, you'can change the alignment in this part,

alignment bl
gap_x 100
gap_y 100

Here bl stands for bottomleft.

And color is defined here,

default_color FFFFFF
