Conky Galore

NOTE: Apologies for the repost, I decided my previous calendar layout was idiotic.

I've also fixed the conky files so that the time is on top of the line, but under the word "time". I'm not going to post another screencap of this.


This is similar to my previous desktop, except i re-vamped my conky setup for Ubuntu 9.04.


The standards:

Running ubuntu 9.04 with avant window navigator, compiz, and conky.


Custom dock icons based off of ecqlipse2.png, I colored them and added drop shadows


Wallpaper: Area04 (slightly modified, got rid of text and made it widescreen)


System Icons: Smokikon v0.9


Fonts: "A Bite" for labels, "Santos Dumont" for date/time, and "UnDotum" for everything else.


Now for the conky:

I'm running five separate instances of conky to achieve this desktop. The to-do list merely displays a text file, but I wrote a shell script to easily add and remove tasks from the file. Events is pulling data from google calendar. Everything else is pretty self explanatory.


Here's a link to a .zip that contains all five .conkyrc files, as well as the configuration for conkyGoogleCalendar, and the task script I wrote for the to-do list.
