Conky and images

Recently I succesfully installed conky. I managed to get a lot of things work with more or less effort but I can’t make conky to display any image.

Images path and permissions had been checked. Imlib2 support too but conky won’t display a thing.


$conky -v

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
  * Curl
  * RSS
  * Weather (METAR)
  * Weather (XOAP)
  * wireless
  * support for IBM/Lenovo notebooks
  * eve-online
  * config-output
  * Imlib2
  * ALSA mixer support
  * apcupsd
  * iostats
  * ncurses
  * Lua

  Lua bindings:

the call to image file under .conkyrc


${image ~/cover.jpg -p 0,2 -s 64x64}

Any help will be really appreciated,

Hi
There are no lua bindings present in your version, hence no images
shown. Here is my version packaged up in the repositories;

This is why you are a demigod and I’m a simple mortal.

This is SOLVED. Thanks.

Hi
Glad to have helped :slight_smile: I do note my version doesn’t have some of the
features in the version you had, so if it’s a problem I can make some
changes. I also have a version locally built that includes the nvidia
monitoring if required.

As an AMD/ATI user Nvidia drivers are not a “must” at the moment but I’m sure someone will benefit from it

This is how my conkies are right now. I think it’s not bad for a noobie :slight_smile:
