This is my conky for Asus EEEPC 701SD. I needed to install acpi, acpi tools, lm-sensors
I used synaptic package manager because I am running AntiX 8.5 Upgrade Full Iso installed using antix2usb via antiX control center. This is a live 4gig SD Kingston Flash Drive with persistence. I kept this simple. Just the facts. No bling here but all works.

I have root, Home,Battery,Fan Speed,CPU Temp,Battery all displayed and working.

Make a backup of original .conkyrc. Then you can copy and paste my ~/.conky.rc
into your /home folder to overwrite old .conkyrc. Remember to install above mentioned packages first though.

Guys, in case you are reading this. As you can see. I have
Quote:
# Default colors and also border colors
default_color white
default_shade_color white
default_outline_color white


Yet every time I boot I get the default grey conky without my changes applied. Something in Live is defaulting to the default grey conky first. I have to turn conky on and off before my changes show up. Logging in and out same same also. :?:

Happy Trails, Rok

That ${color cccccc} means gray. You can leave it ${color} for the default colour.

- if you open gcolor2 (in the Graphics menu) and expand "Saved colors" you have a lot of predefined colors and their codes.

Are you using rootfs= or homefs= for persistence option? (Not that it should make any difference).
I just tested and it works ok on my box.

Well you may have found a bug, as my new install with no tweaks to conky exhibits the same behavior, I am guessing that the first screen afterl login(blue) then the next screen, default desktop in icewm. I think the first screen is being set to the blue color of that screen and then not being reset by the default screen.
Going to try and set conky to show white and see what happens as opposed to color.

clear as mud

:oops: My bad as usual. My .conkyrc in /home was the default .conkyrc. So it was loading first. I took my modified .conkyrc and overwrote default .conkyrc and now it logs out and in to whiite text with my mods.

Spaced out Tattooed Linux user as usual/ :oops:

roky, glad it is sorted.

How are you running frugal? I didn't quite understand from df -h.

Is the antiX.iso on hard drive and the persistent changes on another hard drive?

I just installed frugal as a Ext2 file system. I gave about 1.2 gig for / (live ) so to give it room to breath itn case I start something later like Apt-get dist-upgrade or install Gnome, KDE, XFCE, LXDE whatever.

The rest of card for persiistence partition Ext2 fie system. However antix2usb does it's thing (default) is how I installed it. Not sure either how to tell if rootfs= or persistence=. I have 2 partitions on my card Anti. One for Live. The Other for Persistence. Thats all I know. That was why I posted df-h and inxi -F. Figuring mmaybe something would show in those readouts.

Ah, ok I forgot it's a card (so it's a bit like a usb stick, but it is a card instead).

When you install anything, is the repackaging part of apt-get fast enough? On my usb persistence stick, downloads are fast, but writing the information is slow.
Also, reboot is a bit slow too.

Sorry for not looking that conky thing carefully, rok.

Your live partition needs only to have space for the ISO and for GRUB. All the things (like DEs and apps) you install go to your persistence partition.
You can resize back the live partition but you can also leave it that way and, for example, put another ISO there, edit GRUB and have two systems (like for testing, but then just don't set any persistent partition for it).

Believe it or not. It is quite fast on my Kingston SD cards. Shutdown is a little slow but it is slow on my internal SSD drive also on my Asus EEEPC 900. I commented out halvet & in .icewm /startup file and did the same for .fluxbox/startup also since I only run those 2 desktops to see if it improves shutdown and startup as per your thread. Did the same on Live persistent SD flash install also.

Shucks Bro. I look forward to your answers to my posts. I appreciate the time you put in to teach me new things. You're a stand-up bro in my opinion. Along with the rest of the full-time Antix users here. I was pretty ignorant when I started using Antix. You guys learned me well.

Quote:

I had tried that when I did a base frugal install with XFCE. I noticed when I went hog wild installing stuff with apt-get, then synaptic (which I installed later. Live partition was filling up. That was why I made room on this install.

This flash install I did was to test/bed and fix certain bugs/jump through hoops to show 701SD users that AntiX 8.5 Upgrade Iso. Is a viable option to Jolicloud, Leenux (which seems dead in the water), Ubuntu NBR. I figure google will start pulling into my posts on this forum and tweak their interest maybe. Gotta remember. If this uneducated Biker can run Antix. Then all those blogs about only for advanced users might start fading away. :D

Previous posts were of my Conky on a Frugal AntiX install on SD flash drive. Below is my conkyrc for Full Install on internal SSD drive. Learned a little bit more about editing Icewm startup file since starting this thread plus making sure /home conkyrc reflects changes also. This conky is set up for a Asus EEEPC 701SD with a full AntiX install to internal SD. No seperate /home partition on this install. Think of it as a Ubuntu default install with out swap partition.


My startup in ~/.icwm (commented out halevt for better boot times)

Code:
#halevt &
#conky &
## use for multiple conky
conky -c ~/.icewm/conkyrc &


startup file in ~/.fluxbox

Code:
#halevt &
#conky &
## use for more than one conky
conky -c ~/.fluxbox/conkyrc &




lm-sensors and acpi installed through Synaptic Package Manager First. Then conkyrc edit. (Hint: I always make a backup of original stock antix .conkyrc in /home before editing .conkyrc)
