COLLECTION OF WIDGETS Deepin

Igatjens widget. Created by Isaias Gatjens (Twitter)

Conky based widgets

A muchos nos gusta tener widgets sobre el fondo de nuestro escritorio. Con esa finalidad hemos creado un package deb with a wide collection of widgets of all kinds. These widgets are selected and configured from the "Conky Manager" program, included in the same package.

The latest version of Deepin Widgets is 2.2. Several styles and other sections were added along with a series of corrections.

INSTALLATION

Download and install the package from the repository Deepines luego ejecutar el comando update && sudo apt sudo apt-install widgets conkys . Éste ya se encarga de agregar todos los paquetes necesarios para su correcto funcionamiento (conky-manager, conky, sensores, etc).

Once the package is installed we will be able to use most of the integrated widgets. However, there are certain widgets that need a few extra modifications to work properly. Which we will explain in detail later.

FUNCTIONING

El programa de Conky Manager lista todos los widgets disponibles. Nos podemos desplazar entre ellos y seleccionar aquellos que queramos, con los iconos de la parte superior izquierda [See Figure 1], o simplemente moviéndonos con el ratón y marcando el cuadrado para elegirlo . Puedes activar todos aquellos que desees, con el único pero de que se pueden solapar. Sin embargo, puedes los reubicar los widgets a lo largo del escritorio del modo que quieras.

The widgets will remain active until you log out or uncheck the activation box. To make them permanent you have to activate the option to start Conky at the beginning of the session, as shown in the image below.

Image 2. How to activate the Conky at startup

Con Conky Manager puedes cambiar tanto la posición, como el color de fondo de los widgets. El tamaño también puede ser modificado, pero puede hacer que los elementos del widget no encajen correctamente desde el botón de ajustes. Muchos de ellos, son colecciones de conkys (widgets) diseñados de forma que encajan mejor visualmente entre si. Aquellos que pertenecen a la misma colección de widgets tienen el mismo nombre entre la 3ª y 4ª barra «/». Como ejemplo este conky: «~/.conky/Originales/ Stylish + To-do-list /config / cpu », where all those widgets with Stylish + To-do-list in that position they are from the same collection.

ADJUSTMENTS WIDGETS

  • Widgets that sample Network data:On most machines, widgets that display graphs of network traffic should work correctly.
    If this is not your case, to solve it, you must replace the name of the network that comes standard in Conky Manager (wlp3s0) with that of your machine. To do this, we look for the name of your network in the terminal with the following command: nmcli connection show. You will get the name in the column "device". We go to Conky ManagerNetwork / Interface Settings, we replace "wlp3s0" with the network name that the command returned.
  • Task list widget (or annotations).To create notes with the widget "~ / .conky / Original / Stylish + To-do-list / Config" you have to create a file called notes.txt (without capital letters) in your / home / folder. To update your notes you write them in that file and when you save it it will be updated in the widget.
  • music widget (~ / .conky / Originals / Panels_in_boxes / Config / mediaplayer_rc) shows the data of the songs that are playing, but only with the Clementine music player. So, to use this widget, you must install that player with sudo apt install clementine

Hello! I wanted to install it on 15.9.2 and it gives me the following:

[email protected]:~$ sudo apt install conkys-widgets
Reading package lists ... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information ... Done
Do not can instal some pack. This may mean that
you asked for an impossible situation or, if you are using the distribution
unstable, that some required packages have not yet been created or are
They have taken from "Incoming".
The following information can help resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
conkys-widgets : Depende: conky-manager pero no es instalable
E: Problems could not be corrected, you have retained broken packages.

I have something wrong in my sources or it may not be for this version?

Thank you!

Hello, it is also important to update the repositories just before installing

update && sudo apt sudo apt-install widgets conkys

And as Jorge indicates, the beta version of Deepin is missing dependencies.

Thank you very much to both. When I downloaded it I had no idea it was beta, sniff. Can I go to stable without reinstalling anything?

Hello, as Jorge indicates in the answer to the previous comment, with the change of the window manager in Deepin 15.10, many of the configurations have become obsolete, we have already prepared an update that solves these problems and it will be available in the new compatible deepines repository with the new Deepin 15.10, which will be published in the coming days.

Oi! I am not understanding Portuguese, I am using or Google Translator.

You can move, or conky manager allows you to move each widget independently.

I will try to show it with a video.

I can not show you the error because according to, it was installed normally, but when I search in the personal folder and even in hidden files it does not appear, that is, I followed the steps but at the moment of starting nothing appears.

OK, I will try to guess, you are not facilitating it… for example it would have helped me to see the contents of the personal folder or screenshots of the installation process that you did, all those are details with useful information.

Run the following commands one at a time, be careful not to skip any, and please display the results.

-a lsb_release

ls -la /etc/apt/[sources.list,trusted.gpg-lex.europa.eu.d/ && sudo debconf-show deepines-repository

mv ~ / ~ .conky / .conky _ $ (date +% Y-% m-% d% H% M% S)

Sudo apt purge conkys-widgets

update && sudo apt -f install sudo apt

update && sudo apt sudo apt install conky-all

update && sudo apt sudo apt-install widgets conkys

I already do the installation and configuration, most of the widgets work fine but I have a problem with the network called conky-iganjens-med-internet.conf, small screen, it happens that it does not show me network information, and if I agree to change The name of the network interface tells me that this widget cannot be edited with the network interface, how can I make this adjustment

Hello, conky-igatjens-med-internet is designed to measure the Internet bandwidth, not the network card, taking as a scale what is indicated below the percentage of the center, reference bandwidth or scale is set manually in conky-igatjens-000-settings.lua. That is why the meter is called the Internet and not the network.

You can modify the settings in conky-igatjens-000-settings.lua, I note that these are not simple old-fashioned conkys, they are more complex and have LUA programming. The igatjens conky automatically detect network devices, but this can be changed in conky-igatjens-000-settings.lua.

I recommend you see the widget help.

I add, for example the default bandwidth is 6Mbps, if the bandwidth used is 60kbps it only represents 1% of 6Mbps. The following is an example of normal widget operation.

Good morning to everybody.
I am new here, and thanks in advance for the work done.
I installed 'Conky', but I can't get the TASK LIST to read the text file.
Could someone contribute… showing step by step… how to do it!

Hi, I don't understand what the problem is. Can you explain it more fully?

Spycam

I think I already understood, do you mean this?

Task list widget (or annotations).To create notes with the widget "~ / .conky / Original / Stylish + To-do-list / Config" you have to create a file called notes.txt (without capital letters) in your / home / folder. To update your notes you write them in that file and when you save it it will be updated in the widget.

If so, I already checked and see there is a problem, run the following commands to fix it.

touch ~ / notes.txt

sed -i "s | /home/jorge/notes.txt | / home / $ (whoami) /notas.txt |" ~ / .conky / Originals / Stylish + To-do-list / Config / notes

chmod + x ~ / .conky / Original / Stylish + To-do-list / Scripts / viewnotes.sh

sed -i "s | notes.txt | notes.txt |" ~ / .conky / Originals / Stylish + To-do-list / Scripts / viewnotes.sh

Now add a to-do list in the notes.txt file that is in your user folder.

In the next version of conkys-widget this problem will be solved.

Greetings.

Hello, the option to activate the temperature indicator is deactivated by default in most widgets because it requires an installation and configuration that is also not a recipe and the steps change frequently between one computer and another, that is, it is complicated.

GPU widgets are typically for Nvidia GPUs only.
