Here are some of my dotfiles, little projects and relevant config files.
This is a conky interface with a bit of py and sh here and there. Got inspo from various vidya and films for creating this and it's projected to be rendered on a 1920x1080 display. If you have greater or lower resolution, please feel free to adapt it for your needs.
It uses a color scheme of a maximum of three colors (including all the images) so it is easy to change it as you prefer with a maximum of three lines of bash.
Please explore the directories and even read carefully ALL the configuration files.
Calendar... One day i felt like re-inventig hot-water so there it is. What is so special about this calendar? The fact that you can mark days to be displayed in the calendar and the option to associate notes to them;
A weather widget full of info and forecast. For this one you will need to
pip install pywapi
pip install speedtest-cli
A dbus-monitor i made in python ( reinventing hot-water yet again ) which serves the purpose of collecting notifications from "whatsie" - a WhatsApp Web client for Desktop, created by talented https://github.com/Aluxian/Whatsie - and pipe the Sender to the conky.
Awesome wallpaper and awesome HUD designed by me :)
conky_OPSATdirectory, should go into
/home/youruser/.conky/and you are ready to go. If you encounter conky files not working with the default settings, try exporting your $USER to the enviornment as every path in the conky files has
a. Images inside
conky_OPSATdirectory (except the conkyweathericons) serve the sole purpose of ricing. If you feel like you don't mind a less than awesome desktop, feel free to get rid of them.
b. The spinning gif in the middle of the screen, it's also 100% eye-candy and fireworks. If you have a low end machine i strongly recommend you to make less than using
c. The calendar per se, it just works but if you don't want all the unicode-art, please read the documentation of it. I like to think that i covered pretty much every customization preference.
d. The whatsapp notification counter. I think this is the most optional feature. If you are going to use it, make sure to start the
dbus-mon.pytogether with "whatsie" at launch (the conky_notifs will take care of killing both itself and the
dbus-mon.py, on quitting whatsie)
e. inside the CPU histogram ring, there is a 2 pixel thin ring which serves ME to know the approximative level of the sound volume. It resides in the
cpu_rings.luafile, just in case you want to get rid of it or find it odd.
That's it, enjoy!
