How do you get this theme to work? I run it in terminal and it says I don't have your home/dobbie/Music directory and even after I change them to the directory system I have on my Elementary OS it still comes up with that error in files I can't find? Furthermore every time I edit a file another one disappears? I am so confused
This is amazing. So minimalistic, makes me want to switch to Linux . The wallpaper link is dead, apparently the site is going through some changes and such. It gives me access denied. Could you please upload your version of the wallpaper please, would be greatly appreciated.
This is a wonderful setup. I first encountered it from the lifehacker website. While I was able to reproduce most everything exactly, I seem to be having trouble with conky. I'm a complete newbie to Linux and especially conky. Could you please explain step by step how to reproduce the conky configuration you have shown in the screen shot or what I need to do to install and configure it like such? I'm totally lost as a confused uneducated individual.
Right click on the file named .conky.sh, select Properties and under the Permissions tab tick the box for Execute.
Double click the .conky.sh file to make my config start. If you want it to start at login, add the file by going to your Startup Programs, click add, name it Conky, in the command click browse, then navigate to your home folder, and select the .conky.sh file, if you can't see it, ctrl+h to sow hidden files.
I looked over some of the previous coments and saw where you suggested making the .conky.sh file; I'm confused about this, do I need to modify it to reflect my own home or do I leave it like it shows in the coments, also a quick "conky --help" reveals a "-C >" switch and not a "-c" switch, should I adjust that too or leave it as in the comments (is this a hidden switch?)
I managed to get some of it to work, like the stats at the bottom, but I don't see the time or weather at all. How can I fix this resolve it?
I love this. Can that icon set be used in plank or do you have to install AWN in elementary for it to work? Also how do you install that weather conky in elementary (I downloaded conky & conky manager but for some reason it doesn't load up) if you don't mind helping me. THanks.
I just used AWN, I'm not a fan of Plank and I'm not sure you can customise it to the extent you can with AWN. In regards to the conky, there is a link to the config further down the comments, download that and extract, put the files in your home folder. Make sure the .conky.sh file is executable, install curl (sudo apt-get install curl) and add the .conky.sh to your start up programs. Double click the .conky.sh file to fire up conky.
Thanks for the help. I actually decided to install KDocker which puts all the apps I want docked into the wingpanel/system tray. That way I can have everything all in one place with out having to use Plank or AWN. It also allows you to change the icon to whatever image you want like AWN.
I actually installed the 4.5 version that's listed in the software center in eOS. It says "Works for all NET WM compliant window managers - that includes KDE, GNOME, Xfce, Fluxbox and many more." I'm not sure about KDE dependencies. I'm just using the default elementary os luna with some of elementaryupdate.com's tweaks.
Also if you want an app to minimize to the system tray upon starting up your computer you have to go to the startup applications in system settings and set it up manually with the right command to have kdocker boot up your app and do that. It doesn't do it automatically.
You would put this as a command for each app in the startup applications:
