Conkywx Conky Weather Script - Conkywx ONE Released

If your main language is not English - conkywx can display information and messages in your native language - contact me if you are willing to help with the simple translations. You shall get the FULL credit for your work.

Now Conkywx is 1.0 - Faster Sleeker - Additions and changes:
  • Dynamic Moon
  • Font to Image
  • Trend Graphs
  • Scrolling Weather Alerts
  • Active Weather Alerts
  • Tropical Weather Storm Warnings
  • Moon Works for Both Hemispheres
  • Bug fixes and tweaks.

  • As many users are using various conky variants - conky is no longer a dependency but however - conky is still required. Please ensure conky - in what ever form - is infact installed. 
  • Refer to the included release notes for changes additions etc...
  • To reduce duplication of effort - conkywx man page now has basic information and has a link to the wiki which is normally being updated real time as changes to conkywx are being made.
  • If you are using Gnome 3 - own_window_type in the *conkyrc.sh needs to be changed to normal dock etc
  • In some cases to have conky restart automatically you may need to give a sleep 30 - delay in your conky-start script
  • *conkyrc.sh files are configured on XFCE 4.10 with compiz + emerald - you may need to tweak conkyrc examples for your DE

conkywx ONE

There is a wiki page conkywx wiki

Due to the changes at the wunderground site - all earlier versions of conkywx do not work - see this post for conkywx latest information

For this stand alone version run the conkywx_fonts_assistant.sh file to install or remove conkywx fonts.

People - feedback from you would be great ;-)
