NAME

       conky  -  A system monitor for X originally based on the torsmo code, but more kickass. It
       just keeps on given'er. Yeah.

SYNOPSIS

       conky [ options ]

DESCRIPTION

       Conky is a system monitor for X originally based on torsmo. Since its inception, Conky has
       changed   significantly   from   its   predecessor,   while   maintaining  simplicity  and
       configurability. Conky can display just about anything, either on your root desktop or  in
       its  own  window. Not only does Conky have many built-in objects, it can also display just
       about any piece of information by using scripts and other external programs.

       Conky has more than 250 built in objects, including support for a  plethora  of  OS  stats
       (uname,  uptime,  CPU  usage, mem usage, disk usage, "top" like process stats, and network
       monitoring, just to name a few), built in IMAP and POP3 support, built in support for many
       popular  music  players  (MPD,  XMMS2,  BMPx,  Audacious),  and much much more.  Conky can
       display this info either as text, or using simple progress bars and  graph  widgets,  with
       different fonts and colours.

       We  are  always  looking for help, whether its reporting bugs, writing patches, or writing
       docs. Please use the facilities at SourceForge to make bug reports, feature requests,  and
       submit  patches,  or  stop  by #conky on irc.freenode.net if you have questions or want to
       contribute.

       Thanks for your interest in Conky.

COMPILING

       For users compiling from source on a binary distro, make sure you have the  X  development
       libraries  installed  (Unless  you  configure  your  build  without X11). This should be a
       package along the lines of "libx11-dev" or "xorg-x11-dev" for X11 libs, and similar "-dev"
       format  for  the other libs required (depending on your build options). You should be able
       to see which extra packages you need to install  by  reading  errors  that  you  get  from
       running `cmake'. The easiest way to view the available build options is to run `ccmake' or
       `cmake-gui' from the source tree, but be careful when disabling certain  features  as  you
       may  lose  desired  functionality. E.g., with BUILD_MATH disabled you won't get errors but
       logarithmic graphs will be normal graphs and gauges will miss their line.

       Conky  has  (for  some  time)  been  available  in  the  repositories  of   most   popular
       distributions. Here are some installation instructions for a few:

       Gentoo  users  -- Conky is in Gentoo's Portage...  simply use "emerge app-admin/conky" for
       installation.

       Debian, etc. users -- Conky should be in your repositories, and can be installed by  doing
       "aptitude install conky".

       Example to compile and run Conky with default components (note that some build options may
       differ for your system):

       cmake -D CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX:string=/usr .

       make

       make install # Optional

       src/conky

       Conky has been tested to be compatible with C99 C and C++0x C++, however it has  not  been
       tested with anything other than gcc, and is not guaranteed to work with other compilers.

       TIP: Try configuring Conky with `ccmake' or `cmake-gui' instead of just `cmake'.

YOU SHOULD KNOW

       Conky  is  generally very good on resources. That said, the more you try to make Conky do,
       the more resources it is going to consume.

       An easy way to force Conky to reload your  ~/.config/conky/conky.conf:  "killall  -SIGUSR1
       conky".  Saves you the trouble of having to kill and then restart. You can now also do the
       same with SIGHUP.

CONFIGURATION SETTINGS

       Default    configuration    file    location    is    $HOME/.config/conky/conky.conf    or
       ${sysconfdir}/conky/conky.conf.  On most systems, sysconfdir is /etc, and you can find the
       sample config file there (/etc/conky/conky.conf).

       You might want to copy it to $HOME/.config/conky/conky.conf and then start  modifying  it.
       Other configs can be found at http://conky.sf.net/

       alignment
              Aligned  position  on  screen, may be top_left, top_right, top_middle, bottom_left,
              bottom_right, bottom_middle,  middle_left,  middle_middle,  middle_right,  or  none
              (also  can be abreviated as tl, tr, tm, bl, br, bm, ml, mm, mr). See also gap_x and
              gap_y.

       append_file
              Append the file given as argument.

       background
              Boolean value, if true, Conky will be forked to background when started.

       border_inner_margin
              Inner border margin in pixels (the margin between the border and text).

       border_outer_margin
              Outer border margin in pixels (the margin between the border and the  edge  of  the
              window).

       border_width
              Border width in pixels.

       colorN Predefine  a  color  for  use  inside conky.text segments.  Substitute N by a digit
              between 0 and 9, inclusively. When specifying the color  value  in  hex,  omit  the
              leading hash (#).

       console_graph_ticks
              A  comma-separated  list  of  strings  to  use  as  the  bars  of a graph output to
              console/shell. The first list item is used for the minimum bar height and the  last
              item is used for the maximum. Example: " ,_,=,#".

       cpu_avg_samples
              The number of samples to average for CPU monitoring.

       default_bar_height
              Specify a default height for bars. If not specified, the default value is 6.

       default_bar_width
              Specify  a  default width for bars. If not specified, the default value is 0, which
              causes the bar to expand to fit  the  width  of  your  Conky  window.  If  you  set
              out_to_console  = true, the text version of the bar will actually have no width and
              you will need to set a sensible default or set the height and  width  of  each  bar
              individually.

       default_color
              Default color and border color

       default_gauge_height
              Specify a default height for gauges. If not specified, the default value is 25.

       default_gauge_width
              Specify a default width for gauges. If not specified, the default value is 40.

       default_graph_height
              Specify a default height for graphs. If not specified, the default value is 25.

       default_graph_width
              Specify a default width for graphs. If not specified, the default value is 0, which
              causes the graph to expand to fit the width  of  your  Conky  window.  If  you  set
              out_to_console  =  true,  the text version of the graph will actually have no width
              and you will need to set a sensible default or set the height  and  width  of  each
              graph individually.

       default_outline_color
              Default outline color

       default_shade_color
              Default shading color and border's shading color

       disable_auto_reload
              Enable to disable the inotify-based auto config reload feature.

       diskio_avg_samples
              The number of samples to average for disk I/O monitoring.

       display
              Specify an X display to connect to.

       xinerama_head
              Specify a Xinerama head.

       double_buffer
              Use  the  Xdbe  extension? (eliminates flicker) It is highly recommended to use own
              window with this one so double buffer won't be so big.

       draw_borders
              Draw borders around text?

       draw_graph_borders
              Draw borders around graphs?

              Draw shades?

       extra_newline
              Put an extra newline at the end when writing  to  stdout,  useful  for  writing  to
              awesome's wiboxes.

       font   Font name in X, xfontsel can be used to get a nice font

       format_human_readable
              If  enabled,  values  which  are  in bytes will be printed in human readable format
              (i.e., KiB, MiB, etc). If disabled, the number of bytes is printed instead.

       gap_x  Gap, in pixels, between right or left border of  screen,  same  as  passing  -x  at
              command line, e.g. gap_x 10.  For other position related stuff, see 'alignment'.

       gap_y  Gap,  in  pixels,  between  top  or  bottom border of screen, same as passing -y at
              command line, e.g. gap_y 10.  For other position related stuff, see 'alignment'.

       hddtemp_host
              Hostname to connect to for hddtemp objects. Defaults to "127.0.0.1".

       hddtemp_port
              Port to use for hddtemp connections. Defaults to 7634.

       http_refresh
              When this is set the page generated with  out_to_http  will  automatically  refresh
              each interval. Default value is no.

       if_up_strictness
              How strict should if_up be when testing an interface for being up? The value is one
              of up, link or address, to check for the interface being solely up,  being  up  and
              having link or being up, having link and an assigned IP address.

       imap   Default  global  IMAP  server.  Arguments  are:  "host  user  pass [-i interval (in
              seconds)] [-f 'folder'] [-p port] [-e 'command'] [-r  retries]".  Default  port  is
              143,  default  folder is 'INBOX', default interval is 5 minutes, and default number
              of retries before giving up is 5. If the password is supplied as '*', you  will  be
              prompted to enter the password when Conky starts.

       imlib_cache_flush_interval
              Interval (in seconds) to flush Imlib2 cache.

       imlib_cache_size
              Imlib2 image cache size, in bytes. Defaults to 4MiB. Increase this value if you use
              $image lots. Set to 0 to disable the image cache.

       lua_draw_hook_post function_name [function arguments]
              This function, if defined, will be called by Conky  through  each  iteration  after
              drawing  to the window. Requires X support. Takes any number of optional arguments.
              Use this hook for drawing things on top of what Conky draws. Conky puts 'conky_' in
              front of function_name to prevent accidental calls to the wrong function unless you
              place 'conky_' in front of it yourself.

       lua_draw_hook_pre function_name [function arguments]
              This function, if defined, will be called by Conky through  each  iteration  before
              drawing  to the window. Requires X support. Takes any number of optional arguments.
              Use this hook for drawing things on top of what Conky draws. Conky puts 'conky_' in
              front of function_name to prevent accidental calls to the wrong function unless you
              place 'conky_' in front of it yourself.

       lua_load
              Loads the Lua scripts separated by spaces.

       lua_shutdown_hook function_name [function arguments]
              This function, if defined, will  be  called  by  Conky  at  shutdown  or  when  the
              configuration  is  reloaded.  Use  this  hook  to  clean up after yourself, such as
              freeing memory which has been allocated by external libraries via Lua.  Conky  puts
              'conky_'  in  front  of  function_name  to  prevent  accidental  calls to the wrong
              function unless you place 'conky_' in front of it yourself.

       lua_startup_hook function_name [function arguments]
              This function, if defined,  will  be  called  by  Conky  at  startup  or  when  the
              configuration is reloaded.  Use this hook to initialize values, or for any run-once
              applications. Conky puts 'conky_' in front of function_name to  prevent  accidental
              calls to the wrong function unless you place 'conky_' in front of it yourself.

       mail_spool
              Mail spool for mail checking

       max_port_monitor_connections
              Allow  each  port  monitor to track at most this many connections (if 0 or not set,
              default is 256)

       max_text_width width
              When a line in the output contains 'width' chars and the  end  isn't  reached,  the
              next  char  will start on a new line. If you want to make sure that lines don't get
              broken, set 'width' to 0

       max_user_text bytes
              Maximum size of user text buffer, i.e. text inside  conky.text  section  in  config
              file (default is 16384 bytes)

       maximum_width pixels
              Maximum width of window

       minimum_height height

              MySQL database to use. Defaults to mysql

       music_player_interval
              Music player thread update interval (defaults to Conky's update interval)

       net_avg_samples
              The number of samples to average for net data

       no_buffers
              Subtract (file system) buffers from used memory?

       nvidia_display
              The display that the nvidia variable will use (defaults to the value of the display
              variable)

       out_to_console
              Print text to stdout.

       out_to_http
              Let conky act as a small http-server serving it's text.

       out_to_ncurses
              Print  text  in  the console, but use ncurses so that conky can print the text of a
              new update over the old text. (In the future this will provide more useful things)

       out_to_stderr
              Print text to stderr.

       out_to_x
              When set to no, there will be no output in X (useful when you also use things  like
              out_to_console).  If  you set it to no, make sure that it's placed before all other
              X-related setting (take the first line of your  configfile  to  be  sure).  Default
              value is yes

       override_utf8_locale
              Force UTF8? requires XFT

       overwrite_file
              Overwrite the file given as argument.

       own_window
              Boolean, create own window to draw?

       own_window_class
              Manually set the WM_CLASS name. Defaults to "Conky".

       own_window_colour colour
              If  own_window_transparent  no,  set  a  specified  background  colour (defaults to
              black). Takes either a hex value (e.g. ffffff, note the lack of '#') or a valid RGB
              name (see /usr/lib/X11/rgb.txt)

       own_window_hints undecorated,below,above,sticky,skip_taskbar,skip_pager
              If  own_window  is  yes,  you  may use these window manager hints to affect the way
              Conky displays. Notes: Use own_window_type desktop as another way to implement many
              of  these  hints  implicitly.  If  you use own_window_type override, window manager
              hints have no meaning and are ignored.

       own_window_title
              Manually set the window name. Defaults to "conky (<hostname>)".

       own_window_argb_visual
              Boolean, use ARGB visual? ARGB can be used  for  real  transparency,  note  that  a
              composite  manager  is required for real transparency. This option will not work as
              desired (in most cases) in conjunction with 'own_window_type override'.

       own_window_argb_value
              When ARGB visuals are enabled, this use this to modify the alpha value used.  Valid
              range is 0-255, where 0 is 0% opacity, and 255 is 100% opacity.

       own_window_transparent
              Boolean,  set  transparency?  If ARGB visual is enabled, sets background opacity to
              0%.

       own_window_type
              if own_window is yes, you may specify type normal, desktop, dock, panel or override
              (default:  normal).   Desktop  windows  are  special  windows  that  have no window
              decorations; are always visible on your desktop; do not appear  in  your  pager  or
              taskbar;  and are sticky across all workspaces. Panel windows reserve space along a
              desktop edge, just like panels and  taskbars,  preventing  maximized  windows  from
              overlapping  them.  The  edge  is  chosen  based  on the alignment option. Override
              windows are not under the control of the window manager. Hints  are  ignored.  This
              type of window can be useful for certain situations.

       pad_percents
              Pad percentages to this many decimals (0 = no padding)

       pop3   Default  global  POP3  server.  Arguments  are:  "host  user  pass [-i interval (in
              seconds)] [-p port] [-e 'command'] [-r retries]".  Default  port  is  110,  default
              interval  is 5 minutes, and default number of retries before giving up is 5. If the
              password is supplied as '*', you will be prompted to enter the password when  Conky
              starts.

              "fahrenheit" or "celsius". The default unit is degree Celsius.

       templateN
              Define a template for later use inside conky.text segments. Substitute N by a digit
              between  0 and 9, inclusively. The value of the variable is being inserted into the
              stuff  inside  conky.text  at  the  corresponding   position,   but   before   some
              substitutions are applied:

              '\n' -> newline
              '\\' -> backslash
              '\ ' -> space
              '\N' -> template argument N (starting from 1)

       text_buffer_size bytes
              Size  of  the  standard text buffer (default is 256 bytes). This buffer is used for
              intermediary text, such as individual lines, output from $exec  vars,  and  various
              other  variables. Increasing the size of this buffer can drastically reduce Conky's
              performance, but will allow for more text display per variable. The  size  of  this
              buffer cannot be smaller than the default value of 256 bytes.

       times_in_seconds
              If  true, variables that output times output a number that represents seconds. This
              doesn't affect $time, $tztime and $utime

       top_name_verbose
              If  true, top name shows the full command line of each process, including arguments
              (whenever possible). Otherwise, only the basename is displayed.  Default  value  is
              false.

              Arguments  are  left,  right,  and  none  (default).  The old true/false values are
              deprecated and default to right/none respectively. Note that this only helps if you
              are using a mono font, such as Bitstream Vera Sans Mono.

       use_xft
              Use Xft (anti-aliased font and stuff)

       xftalpha
              Alpha of Xft font. Must be a value at or between 1 and 0.

OBJECTS/VARIABLES

       Colours   are   parsed   using   XParsecolor(),   there   might   be   a   list  of  them:
       /usr/share/X11/rgb.txt.  Colour can be also in #rrggbb format (hex).

       Some objects may create threads, and sometimes these threads will not be  destroyed  until
       Conky  terminates.  There is no way to destroy or clean up threads while Conky is running.
       For example, if you use an MPD variable, the MPD thread  will  keep  running  until  Conky
       dies.  Some  threaded  objects will use one of the parameters as a 'key', so that you only
       have 1 relevant thread running (for example, the $curl, $rss and $weather  objects  launch
       one thread per URI).

              make  sure it contains the name of your distribution, the contents of /proc/version
              and if there is a file that only exists on your distribution, also add the path  of
              that file in the bug. If there is no such file, please add another way which we can
              use to identify your distribution.

       execbar (height),(width) command
              Same  as exec, except if the first value returned is a value between 0-100, it will
              use that number to draw a horizontal bar.  The  height  and  width  parameters  are
              optional,  and  default  to  the  default_bar_height  and  default_bar_width config
              settings, respectively.

       execgauge (height),(width) command
              Same as exec, except if the first value returned is a value between 0-100, it  will
              use that number to draw a round gauge (much like a vehicle speedometer). The height
              and width parameters are optional, and  default  to  the  default_gauge_height  and
              default_gauge_width config settings, respectively.

       execgraph command (height),(width) (gradient color 1) (gradient color 2) (scale) (-t) (-l)
              Draws a horizontally scrolling graph with values from 0-100 plotted on the vertical
              axis. All parameters following the command are optional.  Gradient  colors  can  be
              specified as hexadecimal values with no 0x or # prefix. Use the -t switch to enable
              a temperature gradient, so that small values are "cold"  with  color  1  and  large
              values  are  "hot"  with  color  2.  Without  the  -t  switch, the colors produce a
              horizontal gradient spanning the width of the graph. The  scale  parameter  defines
              the  maximum  value  of the graph. Use the -l switch to enable a logarithmic scale,
              which helps to see small values. The default size for graphs can be controlled  via
              the default_graph_height and default_graph_width config settings.

              If  you  need  to execute a command with spaces, you have a couple options: 1) wrap
              your command in double-quotes, or 2) put your command into a separate file, such as
              ~/bin/myscript.sh,  and  use  that as your execgraph command. Remember to make your
              script executable!

              In the following example, we set up execgraph to display seconds (0-59) on a  graph
              that  is 50px high and 200px wide, using a temperature gradient with colors ranging
              from red for small values (FF0000) to yellow for large values (FFFF00).  We set the
              scale to 60.

              ${execgraph ~/seconds.sh 50,200 FF0000 FFFF00 60 -t}

       execi interval command
              Same  as  exec, but with a specific interval in seconds. The interval can't be less
              than the update_interval in your configuration. See also $texeci.

       execibar interval (height),(width) command
              Same as execbar, but with an interval.

       execigauge interval (height),(width) command
              Same as execgauge, but with an interval.

       execigraph interval command (height),(width) (gradient color 1) (gradient color 2) (scale)
       (-t) (-l)
              Same as execgraph, but with an interval.

       execp command
              Executes  a  shell  command and displays the output in conky. Warning: this takes a
              lot more resources than other variables. I'd recommend coding wanted  behaviour  in
              C/C++  and posting a patch. This differs from $exec in that it parses the output of
              the command, so you can insert things like ${color red}hi!${color} in  your  script
              and  have  it  correctly  parsed  by Conky. Caveats: Conky parses and evaluates the
              output of $execp every time Conky loops, and then destroys all the objects. If  you
              try  to  use  anything like $execi within an $execp statement, it will functionally
              run at the same interval that the $execp statement  runs,  as  it  is  created  and
              destroyed at every interval.

       execpi interval command
              Same  as execp, but with an interval. Note that the output from the $execpi command
              is still parsed and evaluated at every interval.

       flagged_mails (maildir) (interval)
              Number of mails marked as flagged in the specified mailbox or mail  spool  if  not.
              Only maildir type mailboxes are supported, mbox type will return -1.

       font (font)
              Specify  a  different  font.  This  new  font  will  apply  to the current line and
              everything following. You can use a $font with no arguments to change back  to  the
              default font (much like with $color)

       format_time seconds format
              Format  time  given  in  seconds.  This  var  only  works when the times_in_seconds
              configuration setting is on. Format is a string that should start and  end  with  a
              "-char.  The  "-chars  are  not part of the output, \w,\d,\h,\m,\s,\(,\) and \\ are
              replaced by weeks,days,hours,minutes,seconds,(,) and \. If you leave  out  a  unit,
              it's value will be expressed in the highest unite lower then the one left out. Text
              between ()-chars will not be visible if a replaced unit  in  this  text  is  0.  If
              seconds  is a decimal number then you can see the numbers behind the point by using
              \S followed by a number that specifies the amount of digits behind the  point  that
              you  want  to  see (maximum 9).  You can also place a 'x' behind \S so you have all
              digits behind the point and no trailing zero's. (also maximum 9)

       forwarded_mails (maildir) (interval)
              Number of mails marked as forwarded in the specified mailbox or mail spool if  not.
              Only maildir type mailboxes are supported, mbox type will return -1.

              daemon. Use hddtemp_host and hddtemp_port to  specify  a  host  and  port  for  all
              hddtemp  objects.  If  no  dev  parameter  is given, the first disk returned by the
              hddtemp daemon is used.

       head logfile lines (next_check)
              Displays  first  N  lines  of  supplied  text  file.  The  file  is  checked  every
              'next_check'  update. If next_check is not supplied, Conky defaults to 2. Max of 30
              lines can be displayed, or until the text buffer is filled.

       hr (height)
              Horizontal line, height is the height in pixels

       hwmon (dev) type n (factor offset)
              Hwmon sensor from sysfs (Linux 2.6). Parameter dev may be omitted if you have  only
              one  hwmon  device.   Parameter type is either 'in' or 'vol' meaning voltage; 'fan'
              meaning fan; 'temp' meaning temperature. Parameter n is number of the  sensor.  See
              /sys/class/hwmon/  on  your  local  computer.  The  optional arguments 'factor' and
              'offset' allow precalculation of the raw input, which is being modified as follows:
              'input  =  input  *  factor  +  offset'. Note that they have to be given as decimal
              values (i.e. contain at least one decimal place).

       i2c (dev) type n (factor offset)

              Evaluates the given boolean expression, printing everything between  $if_match  and
              the matching $endif depending on whether the evaluation returns true or not.  Valid
              expressions consist of a left side, an operator and a right side.  Left  and  right
              sides  are  being  parsed  for contained text objects before evaluation. Recognised
              left and right side types are:

              doubleArgument consists of only digits and a single dot.
              longArgument consists of only digits.

              If PROCESS is running, display everything between $if_running and the corresponding
              $else  or  $endif.   Note  that  PROCESS  may  be  either  a full command line with
              arguments (without the directory prefix), or simply the name of an executable.  For
              example,  either  of  the following will be true if there is a running process with
              the command line /usr/bin/conky -u 5:

              ${if_running conky -u 5} or ${if_running conky}

              It is important not to include trailing spaces. For example, ${if_running  conky  }
              will be false.

       if_smapi_bat_installed (INDEX)

              $if_updatenr and the matching $endif. The counter resets when the highest  UPDATENR
              is      reached.      Example     :     "{$if_updatenr     1}foo$endif{$if_updatenr
              2}bar$endif{$if_updatenr 4}$endif" shows foo 25% of the time followed by bar 25% of
              the time followed by nothing the other half of the time.

       if_xmms2_connected
              Display  everything between $if_xmms2_connected and the matching $endif if xmms2 is
              running.

       image <path to image> (-p x,y) (-s WxH) (-n) (-f interval)
              Renders an image from the path specified using Imlib2. Takes 4 optional  arguments:
              a position, a size, a no-cache switch, and a cache flush interval. Changing the x,y
              position will move the position of the image, and changing the WxH will  scale  the
              image.  If  you  specify  the  no-cache  flag  (-n),  the image will not be cached.
              Alternately, you can specify the -f int switch to specify a  cache  flush  interval
              for a particular image. Example: ${image /home/brenden/cheeseburger.jpg -p 20,20 -s
              200x200} will render 'cheeseburger.jpg' at (20,20) scaled to 200x200 pixels.  Conky
              does  not  make  any  attempt  to  adjust the position (or any other formatting) of
              images, they are just rendered as per the arguments passed. The only reason  $image
              is  part  of the conky.text section, is to allow for runtime modifications, through
              $execp $lua_parse, or some other method.

       imap_messages (args)
              Displays the number of messages in your global  IMAP  inbox  by  default.  You  can
              define  individual  IMAP  inboxes  separately  by passing arguments to this object.
              Arguments are: "host user pass [-i interval (in seconds)] [-f 'folder']  [-p  port]
              [-e  'command']  [-r  retries]".  Default  port  is 143, default folder is 'INBOX',
              default interval is 5 minutes, and default number of retries before giving up is 5.
              If the password is supplied as '*', you will be prompted to enter the password when
              Conky starts.

       imap_unseen (args)
              Displays the number of unseen messages in your global IMAP inbox  by  default.  You
              can  define individual IMAP inboxes separately by passing arguments to this object.
              Arguments are: "host user pass [-i interval (in seconds)] [-f 'folder']  [-p  port]
              [-e  'command']  [-r  retries]".   Default  port is 143, default folder is 'INBOX',
              default interval is 5 minutes, and default number of retries before giving up is 5.
              If the password is supplied as '*', you will be prompted to enter the password when
              Conky starts.

       (-t) (-l)
              Executes a Lua function with and draws a graph.  Expects result  value  to  be  any
              number,  and  by  default will scale to show the full range. See also 'lua_load' on
              how to load scripts. Takes the switch '-t' to use  a  temperature  gradient,  which
              makes  the  gradient values change depending on the amplitude of a particular graph
              value (try it and see). Conky puts 'conky_' in front of  function_name  to  prevent
              accidental  calls  to the wrong function unless you put you place 'conky_' in front
              of it yourself.

       lua_parse function_name (function parameters)
              Executes a Lua function with given parameters as per $lua, then parses  and  prints
              the  result value as per the syntax for the conky.text section. See also 'lua_load'
              on how to load scripts. Conky puts 'conky_' in front of  function_name  to  prevent
              accidental  calls  to the wrong function unless you put you place 'conky_' in front
              of it yourself.

              Platform sensor from sysfs (Linux 2.6). Parameter dev may be omitted  if  you  have
              only  one  platform device.  Platform type is either 'in' or 'vol' meaning voltage;
              'fan' meaning fan; 'temp' meaning temperature. Parameter n is number of the sensor.
              See  /sys/bus/platform/devices/  on  your  local  computer.  The optional arguments
              'factor' and 'offset' allow  precalculation  of  the  raw  input,  which  is  being
              modified  as  follows: 'input = input * factor + offset'. Note that they have to be
              given as decimal values (i.e. contain at least one decimal place).

       pop3_unseen (args)
              Displays the number of unseen messages in your global POP3 inbox  by  default.  You
              can  define individual POP3 inboxes separately by passing arguments to this object.
              Arguments are: "host user pass [-i interval (in seconds)] [-p port] [-e  'command']
              [-r  retries]".  Default  port  is  110, default interval is 5 minutes, and default
              number of retries before giving up is 5. If the password is supplied  as  '*',  you
              will be prompted to enter the password when Conky starts.

       pop3_used (args)
              Displays  the  amount  of  space  (in  MiB, 2^20) used in your global POP3 inbox by
              default. You can define individual POP3 inboxes separately by passing arguments  to
              this  object.  Arguments  are: "host user pass [-i interval (in seconds)] [-p port]
              [-e 'command'] [-r retries]". Default port is 110, default interval is  5  minutes,
              and default number of retries before giving up is 5. If the password is supplied as
              '*', you will be prompted to enter the password when Conky starts.

       processes
              Total processes (sleeping and running)

       read_tcp (host) port
              Connects to a tcp port on a host (default is localhost), reads every char available
              at the moment and shows them.

       read_udp (host) port
              Connects to a udp port on a host (default is localhost), reads every char available
              at the moment and shows them.

       replied_mails (maildir) (interval)
              Number of mails marked as replied in the specified mailbox or mail  spool  if  not.
              Only maildir type mailboxes are supported, mbox type will return -1.

       rss uri interval_in_seconds action (num_par (spaces_in_front))
              Download  and parse RSS feeds. The interval may be a (floating point) value greater
              than 0.  Action may be one of the following: feed_title, item_title (with num par),
              item_desc   (with   num   par)   and   item_titles  (when  using  this  action  and
              spaces_in_front is given conky places that many spaces in front of each item). This
              object  is threaded, and once a thread is created it can't be explicitly destroyed.
              One thread will run for each URI specified. You can  use  any  protocol  that  Curl
              supports.

       running_processes
              Running processes (not sleeping), requires Linux 2.6

       running_threads
              Number of running (runnable) threads. Linux only.

       scroll (direction) length (step) (interval) text
              Scroll  'text' by 'step' characters to the left or right (set 'direction' to 'left'
              or 'right' or 'wait') showing 'length' number of characters at the same  time.  The
              text  may  also contain variables. 'step' is optional and defaults to 1 if not set.
              'direction' is optional and defaults to left if not set. When direction  is  'wait'
              then text will scroll left and wait for 'interval' itertations at the beginning and
              end of the text. If a var creates output on  multiple  lines  then  the  lines  are
              placed  behind  each  other  separated with a '|'-sign. If you change the textcolor
              inside $scroll it will automatically have  it's  old  value  back  at  the  end  of
              $scroll.  The  end  and  the  start of text will be separated by 'length' number of
              spaces unless direction is 'wait'.

       seen_mails (maildir) (interval)
              Number of mails marked as seen in the specified mailbox or mail spool if not.  Only
              maildir type mailboxes are supported, mbox type will return -1.

       shadecolor (color)
              Change shading color

       smapi (ARGS)
              when  using  smapi,  display contents of the /sys/devices/platform/smapi directory.
              ARGS  are  either  '(FILENAME)'  or  'bat  (INDEX)  (FILENAME)'  to   display   the
              corresponding  files'  content.  This  is  a very raw method of accessing the smapi
              values. When available, better use one of the smapi_* variables instead.

       smapi_bat_bar (INDEX),(height),(width)
              when using smapi, display the remaining capacity of the battery with index INDEX as
              a bar.

       smapi_bat_perc (INDEX)
              when  using  smapi,  display  the remaining capacity in percent of the battery with
              index INDEX. This is a separate  variable  because  it  supports  the  'use_spacer'
              configuration option.

       smapi_bat_power INDEX
              when  using  smapi,  display  the  current power of the battery with index INDEX in
              watt. This is a separate variable because the original  read  out  value  is  being
              converted  from  mW.  The  sign  of  the  output  reflects  charging  (positive) or
              discharging (negative) state.

       smapi_bat_temp INDEX
              when using smapi, display the current temperature of the battery with  index  INDEX
              in  degree Celsius. This is a separate variable because the original read out value
              is being converted from milli degree Celsius.

       sony_fanspeed
              Displays the Sony VAIO  fanspeed  information  if  sony-laptop  kernel  support  is
              enabled. Linux only.

       tab (width, (start))
              Puts a tab of the specified width, starting from column 'start'. The unit is pixels
              for both arguments.

       tail logfile lines (next_check)
              Displays last N lines of supplied text file. The file is checked every 'next_check'
              update. If next_check is not supplied, Conky defaults to 2. Max of 30 lines can  be
              displayed, or until the text buffer is filled.

       tcp_ping host (port)
              Displays  the  number  of  microseconds it takes to get a reply on a ping to to tcp
              'port' on 'host'. 'port' is optional and has 80 as default. This works on both open
              and closed ports, just make sure that the port is not behind a firewall or you will
              get 'down' as answer. It's best to test a closed port instead of an open port,  you
              will get a quicker response.

       tcp_portmon port_begin port_end item (index)
              TCP  port (both IPv6 and IPv4) monitor for specified local ports. Port numbers must
              be in the range 1 to 65535. Valid items are:

              count Total number of connections in the range
              rip Remote ip address
              rhost Remote host name
              rport Remote port number
              rservice Remote service name from /etc/services
              lip Local ip address
              lhost Local host name
              lport Local port number
              lservice Local service name from /etc/services

              The connection index provides you with  access  to  each  connection  in  the  port
              monitor.  The  monitor  will  return  information  for  index  values from 0 to n-1
              connections. Values higher than n-1 are simply ignored.  For the "count" item,  the
              connection index must be omitted. It is required for all other items.

              Examples:

              ${tcp_portmon 6881 6999 count} Displays the number of connections in the bittorrent
              port range
              ${tcp_portmon 22 22 rip 0} Displays the remote host ip of the first sshd connection
              ${tcp_portmon 22 22 rip 9} Displays the remote host ip of the tenth sshd connection
              ${tcp_portmon 1 1024 rhost 0} Displays the remote host name of the first connection
              on a privileged port
              ${tcp_portmon 1 1024 rport 4} Displays the remote host port of the fifth connection
              on a privileged port
              ${tcp_portmon 1 65535 lservice 14} Displays the local service name of the fifteenth
              connection in the range of all ports

              Note  that port monitor variables which share the same port range actually refer to
              the same monitor, so many references to a single port range for different items and
              different  indexes all use the same monitor internally. In other words, the program
              avoids creating redundant monitors.

       templateN (arg1) (arg2) (arg3 ...)
              Evaluate the content of the templateN configuration variable (where N  is  a  value
              between  0  and  9,  inclusively),  applying  substitutions  as  described  in  the
              documentation of the corresponding configuration variable. The number of  arguments
              is optional, but must match the highest referred index in the template. You can use
              the same special sequences in each argument  as  the  ones  valid  for  a  template
              definition,  e.g. to allow an argument to contain a whitespace. Also simple nesting
              of templates is possible this way.

              Here are some examples of template definitions, note they are placed between [[ ...
              ]] instead of ' ... ':

              template0 = [[$\1\2]]
              template1 = [[\1: ${fs_used \2} / ${fs_size \2}]]
              template2 = [[\1 \2]]

              The  following  list  shows  sample  usage of the templates defined above, with the
              equivalent syntax when not using any template at all:

              using template                     same without template
              ────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────
              ${template0 node name}             $nodename
              ${template1 root /}                root: ${fs_free /}  /  ${fs_size
                                                 /}
              ${template1  ${template2\  disk\   disk  root:   ${fs_free   /}   /
              root} /}                           ${fs_size /}

       texeci interval command
              Runs  a  command  at  an  interval inside a thread and displays the output. Same as
              $execi, except the command is run inside a thread. Use this  if  you  have  a  slow
              script  to  keep  Conky updating. You should make the interval slightly longer than
              the time it takes your script to execute. For example, if you have  a  script  that
              take  5  seconds  to execute, you should make the interval at least 6 seconds.  See
              also $execi. This object will clean up the thread when it is destroyed, so  it  can
              safely be used in a nested fashion, though it may not produce the desired behaviour
              if used this way.

       texecpi interval command
              Same as execpi, except the command is run inside a thread.

       to_bytes size
              If 'size' is a  number  followed  by  a  size-unit  (kilobyte,mb,GiB,...)  then  it
              converts  the  size  to  bytes  and  shows it without unit, otherwise it just shows
              'size'.

       top type num
              This takes arguments in the  form:top  (name)  (number)  Basically,  processes  are
              ranked  from  highest  to  lowest  in  terms  of  cpu  usage,  which  is what (num)
              represents. The types are: "name", "pid",  "cpu",  "mem",  "mem_res",  "mem_vsize",
              "time",  "uid",  "user", "io_perc", "io_read" and "io_write". There can be a max of
              10 processes listed.

       top_io type num
              Same as top, except sorted by the amount of I/O the process  has  done  during  the
              update interval

              Same as top, except sorted by mem usage instead of cpu

       top_time type num

       totaldown (net)
              Total  download, overflows at 4 GB on Linux with 32-bit arch and there doesn't seem
              to be a way to know how many times it  has  already  done  that  before  conky  has
              started.

       totalup (net)
              Total upload, this one too, may overflow

              Local time for specified timezone, see man strftime to get more  information  about
              format.  The  timezone  argument  is specified in similar fashion as TZ environment
              variable. For hints, look in /usr/share/zoneinfo. e.g.  US/Pacific,  Europe/Zurich,
              etc.

              Number  of  mails  not  marked as flagged in the specified mailbox or mail spool if
              not. Only maildir type mailboxes are supported, mbox type will return -1.

       unforwarded_mails (maildir) (interval)
              Number of mails not marked as forwarded in the specified mailbox or mail  spool  if
              not. Only maildir type mailboxes are supported, mbox type will return -1.

       unreplied_mails (maildir) (interval)
              Number  of  mails  not  marked as replied in the specified mailbox or mail spool if
              not. Only maildir type mailboxes are supported, mbox type will return -1.

              Upload speed graph, colours defined in hex, minus the #. If scale is  non-zero,  it
              becomes  the  scale  for the graph. Uses a logarithmic scale (to see small numbers)
              when you use the -l switch. Takes the switch '-t' to use  a  temperature  gradient,
              which  makes  the gradient values change depending on the amplitude of a particular
              graph value (try it and see).

              Returns  CPU #n's voltage in mV. CPUs are counted from 1. If omitted, the parameter
              defaults to 1.

       voltage_v (n)
              Returns CPU #n's voltage in V. CPUs are counted from 1. If omitted,  the  parameter
              defaults to 1.

       weather URI locID data_type (interval_in_minutes)
              Download, parse and display METAR data.

              For the 'URI', there are two possibilities:

              http://weather.noaa.gov/pub/data/observations/metar/stations/
              http://xoap.weather.com/weather/local/

              The  first  one  is  free to use but the second requires you to register and obtain
              your partner ID and license key. These two must be written, separated by  a  space,
              into a file called .xoaprc which needs to be placed into your home directory.

              'locID' must be a valid location identifier for the required uri. For the NOAA site
              this      must      be      a      valid      ICAO      (see      for      instance
              https://pilotweb.nas.faa.gov/qryhtml/icao/).  For the weather.com site this must be
              a valid location ID (see for instance http://aspnetresources.com/tools/locid.aspx).

              'data_type' must be one of the following:

              last_update The date and time stamp of the data.  The result  depends  on  the  URI
              used.  For the NOAA site it is date (yyyy/mm/dd) and UTC time.  For the weather.com
              one it is date ([m]m/[d]d/yy) and Local Time of the station.
              temperature

              Air temperature (you can use the 'temperature_unit' config setting to change units)
              cloud_cover

              The highest cloud cover status
              pressure

              Air pressure in millibar
              wind_speed

              Wind speed in km/h
              wind_dir

              Wind direction
              wind_dir_DEG

              Compass wind direction
              humidity

              Relative humidity in %
              weather

              Any relevant weather event (rain, snow, etc.). This is not used if you are querying
              the weather.com site since this data is aggregated into the cloud_cover one
              icon

              Weather  icon  (only  for  www.weather.com). Can be used together with the icon kit
              provided upon registering to their service.

              'delay_in_minutes' (optional, default 30) cannot be less than 30 minutes.

              This object is threaded, and once a  thread  is  created  it  can't  be  explicitly
              destroyed. One thread will run for each URI specified.

              Note  that these variables are still EXPERIMENTAL and can be subject to many future
              changes.

       weather_forecast URI locID day data_type (interval_in_minutes)
              Download, parse and display weather forecast data for a given day (daytime only).

              For the 'URI', for the time being  only  http://xoap.weather.com/weather/local/  is
              supported. See 'weather' above for details of usage

              'locID', see 'weather' above.

              'day' is a number from 0 (today) to 4 (3 days after tomorrow).

              'data_type' must be one of the following:

              day Day of the week
              date Date, in the form MMM DD (ie. Jul 14)
              low  Minimun  temperature  (you  can  use  the 'temperature_unit' config setting to
              change units)
              hi Maximum temperature (you can use the 'temperature_unit' config setting to change
              units)
              icon Weather icon. Can be used together with the icon kit provided upon registering
              to the weather.com service
              forecast Weather forecast (sunny, rainy, etc.)
              wind_speed Wind speed in km/h
              wind_dir Wind direction
              wind_dir_DEG Compass wind direction
              humidity Relative humidity in %
              precipitation Probability of having a precipitation (in %)

              'delay_in_minutes' (optional, default 210) cannot be lower than 210 min.

              This object is threaded, and once a  thread  is  created  it  can't  be  explicitly
              destroyed.  One  thread  will  run for each URI specified. You can use any protocol
              that Curl supports.

              Note that these variables are still EXPERIMENTAL and can be subject to many  future
              changes.

LUA API

       Conky features a Lua Programming API, and also ships with Lua  bindings  for  some  useful
       libraries.  Note  that the bindings require tolua++, which currently only compiles against
       Lua 5.1.

       To use Lua Conky, you first need to make sure you have a version of Conky with Lua support
       enabled  (``conky  -v''  will  report  this).  Conky  defines certain global functions and
       variables which can be accessed from Lua code running in  Conky.  Scripts  must  first  be
       loaded using the lua_load configuration option. You then call functions in Lua via Conky's
       $lua, $lua_read, and Lua hooks.

       Be careful when creating threaded objects through the Lua API. You could wind  up  with  a
       whole bunch of threads running if a thread is created with each iteration.

       At  this time, the Lua API should not be considered stable and may change drastically from
       one release to another as it matures.

       NOTE: In order to accommodate certain features in the  cairo  library's  API,  Conky  will
       export  a  few  additional  functions  for  the  creation of certain structures. These are
       documented below.

       conky_parse(string) function
              This function takes a string that is evaluated as per  Conky's  TEXT  section,  and
              then returns a string with the result.

       conky_set_update_interval(number) function
              Sets Conky's update interval (in seconds) to 'number'.

       conky_window table
              This  table  contains  some  information  about Conky's window. The following table
              describes the values contained:

              drawable Window's drawable (Xlib Drawable), requires Lua extras enabled at  compile
              time.
              visual Window's visual (Xlib Visual), requires Lua extras enabled at compile time.
              display  Window's  display  (Xlib  Display), requires Lua extras enabled at compile
              time.
              width Window width (in pixels).
              height Window height (in pixels).
              border_inner_margin Window's inner border margin (in pixels).
              border_outer_margin Window's outer border margin (in pixels).
              border_width Window's border width (in pixels).
              text_start_x The x component of the starting coordinate of text drawing.
              text_start_y The y component of the starting coordinate of text drawing.
              text_width The width of the text drawing region.
              text_height The height of the text drawing region.

              NOTE: This table is only defined when X support is enabled.

       conky_info table
              This table contains some information about Conky's  internal  data.  The  following
              table describes the values contained:

              update_interval Conky's update interval (in seconds).
              uptime System uptime, in seconds.

       conky_build_info string
              A string containing the build info for this particular instance of Conky, including
              the version, build date, and architecture.

       conky_build_date string
              A string containing the build date for this particular instance of Conky.

       conky_build_arch string
              A string containing the build architecture for this particular instance of Conky.

       conky_version string
              A string containing the version of the current instance of Conky.

       conky_config string
              A string containing the path of the current Conky configuration file.

       cairo_text_extents_t:create() function
              Call this function to return  a  new  cairo_text_extents_t  structure.  A  creation
              function  for  this structure is not provided by the cairo API. After calling this,
              you should use tolua.takeownership() on the return value  to  ensure  ownership  is
              passed properly.

       cairo_font_extents_t:create() function
              Call  this  function  to  return  a  new cairo_font_extents_t structure. A creation
              function for this structure is not provided by the cairo API. After  calling  this,
              you  should  use  tolua.takeownership()  on the return value to ensure ownership is
              passed properly.

       cairo_matrix_t:create() function
              Call this function to return a new cairo_matrix_t structure.  A  creation  function
              for this structure is not provided by the cairo API. After calling this, you should
              use tolua.takeownership() on  the  return  value  to  ensure  ownership  is  passed
              properly.

EXAMPLES

       conky -t '${time %D %H:%M}' -o -u 30
              Start  Conky  in  its  own  window  with  date  and clock as text and 30 sec update
              interval.

       conky -a top_left -x 5 -y 500 -d
              Start Conky to background at coordinates (5, 500).

       conky -C > ~/.config/conky/conky.conf
              Do not start Conky,  but  have  it  output  the  builtin  default  config  file  to
              ~/.config/conky/conky.conf for later customising.

FILES

       ${sysconfdir}/conky/conky.conf
              Default  system-wide configuration file.  The value of ${sysconfdir} depends on the
              compile-time options (most likely /etc).

       ~/.config/conky/conky.conf
              Default personal configuration file.

BUGS

       Drawing to root or some other  desktop  window  directly  doesn't  work  with  all  window
       managers. Especially doesn't work well with Gnome and it has been reported that it doesn't
       work with KDE either. Nautilus can be disabled from drawing to desktop with program gconf-
       editor.  Uncheck  show_desktop in /apps/nautilus/preferences/. There is -w switch in Conky
       to set some specific window id. You might find xwininfo -tree useful to find the window to
       draw  to.  You can also use -o argument which makes Conky to create its own window. If you
       do try running Conky in its own window, be sure to read up on the own_window_type settings
       and experiment.
