Conkywx Conky Weather Script 0.7.2 Released

Weather for Conky

For latest version of Conky Weather Program conkywx please look here

Bug Fixes and code cleanup


There is a wiki which is same as the conkywx man page conkywx wiki

If you are using Arch linux visit this AUR page

If you are using Debian based Distro - Ubuntu, CrunchBang, Mint etc Download ver 0.7.2

If you are using RPM based distro - Fedora, CentOS, Suse etc Download ver 0.7.2

This was packaged on Fedora 17 - Gnome 3.4.

If you are using  Gnome and have no conky display then this code should help.

The challenge here was  that "own_window_type override" does not work - you need to set it "own_window_type normal". this can be done from the command line using the terminal -
$ cd /usr/share/conkywx/examples/
$ sudo find . -name "wx*" -exec sed -i 's`own_window_type override`own_window_type normal`g' {} \;

There is also a Stand Alone version you can run in your home directory Download ver 0.7.2

For this stand alone version you will need to copy the fonts in to the ~/.fonts directory. It is a hidden folder in your home directory. Use the file to get it going or see how it works and integrate into your existing conky setup.

People - feedback from you would be great ;-)
