Thread: conky chewing resources

    Default conky chewing resources


    I'm running openSUSE 11.1 with KDE 3.5 and conky 1.6.2. I find that after leaving conky to run for about 24 hours or so, I start having strange problems happen, like not being able to open new windows, or firefox behaving weirdly. Sorry I can't be precise.

    Anybody else experienced weirdness like this?

    Below is a sample of one of my conky config files:

    background yes

    # Use Xft?
    use_xft yes
    xftfont Andale Mono:size=8

    # Update interval in seconds
    update_interval 10

    # This is the number of times Conky will update before quitting.
    # Set to zero to run forever.
    total_run_times 0

    # Create own window instead of using desktop (required in nautilus)
    own_window yes
    own_window_transparent yes
    own_window_type desktop
    own_window_hints undecorate,sticky,skip_taskbar,skip_pager

    # Use double buffering (reduces flicker, may not work for everyone)
    double_buffer no

    # Minimum size of text area
    minimum_size 350 5

    #maximum_width 250

    # Draw shades?
    draw_shades no

    # Draw outlines?
    draw_outline no

    # Draw borders around text
    draw_borders no

    # Stippled borders?
    stippled_borders 0

    # border margins
    border_margin 5

    # border width
    border_width 1

    # Default colors and also border colors
    default_color ffffff
    #default_shade_color white
    #default_outline_color black
    own_window_colour 1B1A18

    # Text alignment, other possible values are commented
    #alignment top_left
    #alignment top_right
    #alignment bottom_left
    alignment bottom_right

    # Gap between borders of screen and text
    # same thing as passing -x at command line
    gap_x 10
    gap_y 300

    # Subtract file system buffers from used memory?
    no_buffers yes

    # set to yes if you want all text to be in uppercase
    uppercase no

    # number of cpu samples to average
    # set to 1 to disable averaging
    cpu_avg_samples 2

    # number of net samples to average
    # set to 1 to disable averaging
    net_avg_samples 2

    # Force UTF8? note that UTF8 support required XFT
    override_utf8_locale yes

    # Add spaces to keep things from moving about? This only affects certain objects.
    use_spacer right

    #${pop3_unseen **SERVER NAME** **USERNAME** **PASSWORD**} new messages

    text_buffer_size 1024

    color1 FFFF00
    color2 FFFFFF
    color3 AAAAAA

    ${font Andale Mono:size=8}${color1}PHONE LOG${color2}
    ${execpi 60 ~/.conky/scripts/phonelog}

    Default Re: conky chewing resources

    Just a note that updating to the latest conky release seems to have fixed the problems.

    Also, I was using feh to set the wallpaper on the root to match KDEs background, which might have been the culprit. I switched to using qiv instead.
