Adventures With Conky

17 Nov

For some reason, I wanted a desktop wallpaper with a calender but I quickly figured out that is a wallpaper, I need to change it every month.  I’m also on Linux, so I don’t have Rainmeter, but instead I have Conky:

I used the Seamod widget from Conky Manger and the calender is a part of my conkyrc file HERE.  Wallpaper is HERE.

Please note that there is some issues with the calender displaying correctly, it’s a Ubuntu issue.  I still have a bit to tweak, mainly with making the calendar a bit wider.

      Thanks. It took forever to find a perfect wallpaper that gives me solid color in the first 5th on the right hand side and the left, well almost.
