Thread: Installed Conky - Can not find sample config file.

  1. #1

    Default Installed Conky - Can not find sample config file.

    So I got Conky installed from source, make and make install went through and I can run conky from the console. I can not find the sample config file in /etc/ or /root/etc or in my home directory.

    Anyone else know where it could be?

    Hi
    Why install from source?

    Did you set configure options? Else it's probably in /usr/local for you
    copy to your home directory.

    Well as far as I know there is no opensuse package and I didn't want to try and install / rig some other distro's binary when it was just easier to type 3 commands to install it from source.

    But it is in /usr/local/etc thank you. Any idea why it installed there instead of just in /etc?

    Hi
    Conky is there, I have packaged up the nvidia part as well in my version (home:malcolmlewisython/openSUSE_11.3);
    software.opensuse.org: Search Results

    My version includes all the lua options etc;
    Code:
    conky -V
    
    Conky 1.8.1 compiled Fri Feb 11 17:28:58 UTC 2011 for Linux 2.6.32 (x86_64)
    
    Compiled in features:
    
    System config file: /etc/conky/conky.conf
    Package library path: /usr/lib64/conky
    
     X11:
      * Xdamage extension
      * XDBE (double buffer extension)
      * Xft
      * ARGB visual
    
     Music detection:
      * MPD
      * MOC
    
     General:
      * math
      * hddtemp
      * portmon
      * wireless
      * nvidia
      * config-output
      * Imlib2
      * apcupsd
      * iostats
      * ncurses
      * Lua
    
      Lua bindings:
       * Cairo
       * Imlib2
    I have also packaged up conkyforecast;
    software.opensuse.org: Search Results

    That's because you never ran the configure options eg;
    Code:
    ./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc
    Always run the command;
    Code:
    ./configure --help
    To see all the options.
