New Screen Capture

Just now, i using conky again.. I dunno, just cant stand with screenlets. I get the conky config and font from here, but with little tweak and adaptation to my sistem. Since this conky using HDDtemp and lm-sensors to work. So, i highly recommend that, if you want to use this kind of conky config, read How-To for lm-sensors first. Because, lm-sensors is very-very machine-dependent, so there is a chance for my config can’t work on yours. But, this conky config is worth to try, because its very nice!! My New Screenshot

This is little How-To perhaps can help

At first, read the readme!!!, and then edit the .conkyrc file. change “thinkpad_hwmon” to something else that your sensors were depends to. As for me, my sensors were using it87 for detection, and in /sys/bus/platform/devices/ folder which has name similiar like it87 was it87.656, so i change the “thinkpad_hwmon” to “it87.656” (without quotes). for the “temp 1” or “temp 2” you may change to the most reasonable temperature when you type “sensors” in terminal. As for me, when i type sensors it appears like this :

it8712-isa-0290
Adapter: ISA adapter
VCore 1:     +1.33 V  (min =  +0.00 V, max =  +4.08 V)
VCore 2:     +2.56 V  (min =  +0.00 V, max =  +4.08 V)
+3.3V:       +3.26 V  (min =  +0.00 V, max =  +4.08 V)
+5V:         +4.95 V  (min =  +0.00 V, max =  +6.85 V)
+12V:       +12.48 V  (min =  +0.00 V, max = +16.32 V)
-12V:       -13.12 V  (min = -27.36 V, max =  +3.93 V)
-5V:         -5.26 V  (min = -13.64 V, max =  +4.03 V)
Stdby:       +6.85 V  (min =  +0.00 V, max =  +6.85 V)
VBat:        +4.08 V
fan1:       3110 RPM  (min = 2657 RPM, div = 2)
fan2:          0 RPM  (min =    0 RPM, div = 2)
fan3:          0 RPM  (min =    0 RPM, div = 2)
M/B Temp:    -55.0°C  (low  = +127.0°C, high = +127.0°C)  sensor = transistor
CPU Temp:     -2.0°C  (low  = +127.0°C, high = +127.0°C)  sensor = transistor
Temp3:       +59.0°C  (low  = +127.0°C, high = +70.0°C)  sensor = thermal diode
cpu0_vid:   +1.388 V

The “M/B Temp” was “temp 1”; “CPU Temp” was “temp 2” and “Temp 3” was “temp 3”. Since i feel that temp 2 was wrong, so i replace “temp 2” with “temp 3”

The Net Upload/Download Meter in the original config was using Wireless Lan. If you do using this, then its ok. But, if you use a wire, then replace “wlan0” with “eth0”

For Alternative, or if you want to use my config, then you could have it here (dont forget to erase the .odt ^^)

The Wallpaper i use is from here and the Iconset is from here

Feel free to comment if you have questions

Sorry for my bad english

Regards
