Conky - Mira by sen7 Conky - Mira by sen7
Here's a conky theme that I've created to match my Mira gtk-theme.
It's heavily based on Lyrae's stylish Conky Box. [link]
In the package are 6 color-shemes. I've included all the scripts (2 of them by me) and the fonts as well.
The "cure" font is in the artwiz-fonts package.

Hola, conky_weather no carga correctamente, he configurado tal como indicas en el README pero sigue sin funcionar.
El problema es que la caja se ve, pero el tiempo no
Gracias por cualquier ayuda.

Beautiful Conky but i seem to get a lot of errors when running it now. Would love an update and I think it would be a good idea to keep this working as a high exposure top conky result in google

Ok, it seems the black box was another conky script that decided to run along with this script. When I checked the terminal, after it tried to execute each file, I got an error message stating "invalid configuration file"

Downloaded your conky scripts and set it up per the README. When I start the script a black box with information in white letters appears on my screen instead of this one. Then, when I click somewhere else the black box disappears. I checked  the task manager and it is showing all the scripts running but for some reason the boxes are not showing up on my screen. Any thoughts or ideas? I'm running Xubuntu 12.04 64-bit.

Hi sen7
I've Ubuntu 10.04 and I've installed conky from terminal - sudo apt-get install conky
My problem is that:

- I don't have a .fonts in my home/username
- I don't have a .scripts in the above folder
- The folder /home/username/.conky also doesn't exists...

conky runs fine, and my search showed that it is located in
/etc/conky
and has two files, conky.conf and conky_no_x11.conf
and conky is run from /usr/bin: ./conky

How should I install your theme?
PS: conky runs fine

Hi!
You can simply create these folders.

Open a terminal for example and run:
mkdir ~/scripts
mkdir ~/.fonts
mkdir ~/.conky

Then copy the corresponding files into these folders. (instructions in the Readme)
After that you can set up the email and weather scripts (like described in the Readme).

To create the start script (in ubuntu for example) open up a terminal and run:
sudo gedit /usr/bin/conky_start

Paste this into the file and save it (replace "Mira_green" with the color-scheme you want):
#!/bin/bash
conky -c ~/.conky/Mira_green/.conkyrc_clock &
conky -c ~/.conky/Mira_green/.conkyrc_weather &
conky -c ~/.conky/Mira_green/.conkyrc_sys &
conky -c ~/.conky/Mira_green/.conkyrc_net &
conky -c ~/.conky/Mira_green/.conkyrc_disk &
conky -c ~/.conky/Mira_green/.conkyrc_mpd

Then run:
sudo chmod a+x /usr/bin/conky_start
conky_start

You can add the "conky_start" script to the autostart of your gnome-session if you want.
I should mention that this conky theme is from 2008 and not up to date. It works but conky has more features now that make some scripts obsolete... I'll release and update after the exam period that will be easier to install! ;)

Wow!
It worked! (the vast majority of stuff). Weather didn't run because conky seems not to take proxy settings, etc. but most of things showed fine.

You're right with:
"I should mention that this conky theme is from 2008 and not up to date. It works but conky has more features now that make some scripts obsolete"

So, I'll follow u and wait until you update these great conky themes

Thanks !!

I really like this. When I made the script executable it runs fine, but the spacing of the conky windows isn't as uniform as I like. Is there a way to change this?

Hi, you can position the windows with the "gap_x" and "gap_y" settings in the conkyrcs.

I really like this conky theme. I do have a few questions as my python-fu is weak:

1. How would i change the sunrise sunset times to a 24-hour format?

2. Did you ever find a moon font to go with this?

Thanks for a great theme!

Hi, please take a look at the readme file.
This theme consists of 6 conkyrc files. Like I described in the readme file the easiest way to start conky is to create a simple script. So first select the color sheme you want to use (green for example) and:

1. copy the folder "Mira_green" to "/home/YourUser/.conky"
2. to create the script run "gedit /usr/bin/conky_start" (as root or with sudo)
3. paste into that file sth like this:

#!/bin/bash
conky -c ~/.conky/Mira_green/.conkyrc_clock &
conky -c ~/.conky/Mira_green/.conkyrc_weather &
conky -c ~/.conky/Mira_green/.conkyrc_sys &
conky -c ~/.conky/Mira_green/.conkyrc_net &
conky -c ~/.conky/Mira_green/.conkyrc_disk &
conky -c ~/.conky/Mira_green/.conkyrc_mpd

4. save the file and run (with sudo or as root again) "chmod a+x /usr/bin/conky_start"
5. then you can launch conky with "conky_start"

What paths and editors you use is naturally your choice, this is just an example! :)

ok, i did read the readme and i followed your exact instructions, i copied all the mira folder to a new folder i made in my home directory (named .conky) and pasted them there. i installed the fonts and made the script as well. after running conky_start, i get this:

it opens the correct amount of windows but i doesnt display the theme... what am i doing wrong?

sorry if im bothering you but i have spent HOURS trying to get this to work... i've reinstalled conky, tried doing the whole thing again, but to no avail :(

Sry for the late reply.
I'm not sure what the problem is but if you have followed the instructions of the readme and it still doesn't work then maybe its a problem with your window-manager.
Do other conky themes work for you?
Maybe this will help: [link]

Complete noob to Conky here. I've edited a couple of scripts in the past and things like that, but I'm not sure what to do here. I assume I have to copy and paste all of the scripts into my Conkyrc file; but I tried that and it crashed when I tried to open Conky.

Am I doing it wrong? Or is there a certain order in which to do it?

Hi! Please take a look at the readme file in this package. It's basically an installation howto.

When you want to execute a script with conky you just need to point to its location (the script has to be executable). Here is an example:

${execi 2 /path/to/script/example.sh}

If you add this line to your conkyrc file, conky will execute the script "example.sh" every two seconds and display the output.

I think there may be a problem since you re-upped. No matter the method I am continually extracting empty Mira_color folders though it seems like the others, fonts and scripts are okay. I would really like to use this, thanks for the hard work.

so, conky draws the backgrounds for the boxes, right? Why is it then that the backgrounds can be transparent? how'd you do that?
Reply

sen7 Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2009
You can do that with compiz-fusion (explanation is in the readme).

Open the CompizConfig and go to: General Options > Opacity Settings > New
Enter "class=Conky" and select the opacity degree.

I've tried to download the file, tried to extract it using Xarchiver or Squeeze and neither provided any usable files.. the output I got was yet another file called Conky__Mira or something without a file extension

Oh, you just need to rename the filetype to ".tar.gz". Deviantart ignores the ".tar" somehow when you upload something.

Thanks for the great theme.I slightly modified the .conkyrc_sys file in the cpu section making it look like this :

${color 9AB7DC}Cpu1:${color a4a4a4}${alignr}${cpu cpu0}% ${color 668ABF}${execi 20 sensors k8temp-pci-00c3 |grep Core0 |awk '{print $3}'}
${color 668ABF}${cpugraph cpu1 20,97 668ABF 9AB7DC}
@${freq cpu2} Mhz

${color 9AB7DC}Cpu2:${color a4a4a4}${alignr}${cpu cpu2}% ${color 668ABF}${execi 20 sensors k8temp-pci-00c3 |grep Core1 |awk '{print $3}'}
${color 668ABF}${cpugraph cpu2 20,97 668ABF 9AB7DC}
@${freq cpu2} Mhz

I have an Intel dual core T2370 cpu and when i run it i always get this error:
Specified sensor(s) not found!

Can you help me to fix this?

Hi!
Did you setup lm_sensors on you system?
>>> [link] <<<

If you have installed and configured it type "sensors" in a terminal and replace "k8temp-pci-00c3" with your sensor chip.

That should fix it. :)
