Yes - for some it does not work - and we need to investigate - I have changed the version number and it has all passed. For the git version - I need to add some adjustment for it to work - as that bug is still there - but the correction is known.

Perhaps if you can tell me what error messages you get on the terminal window - also are you migrating from 0.9x version or are using 1.10x version.

Many variables that need to be looked at...

installed lua 5.4 ,recompiled conky-cairo...but still not working, if you have any suggestions... thanks

LUA has been updated to LUA 5.4 - simply install LUA 5.4 and recompile conky-cairo and all will work fine.

There are some major issues still present which I missed pointing out in my last message - - points to a bug filed by me - exec calls with time intervals are not executed properly - please review the bug. You will also see issues related to negative ram.

To test the bug just change 'pkgver=1.11.5' to install the release build.

I am holding on to the version 1.11.3 as that is the best version so far which does not adversely affect conky.

OK the latest build 1.11.5 is a better build and shall update in a few days - in the mean time just change 'pkgver=1.11.5' to install the release build.

Conky version 1.11.4 has been released - it has memory display related bugs - it will show incorrect memory percent etc.

There are some memory leaks - which have been addressed.

You can edit this pkgbuild to test conky by using the github version - just change the variable '_myopts=0'.

conky has another update - nvidia is now working and this version conky-cairo still working fine with lua 5.3 - you do need to install package

paramvir commented on 2018-12-02 22:36 (UTC)

conky-cairo updated to 1.11.0 - thanks lasers ;-)) for the bump.

paramvir commented on 2018-08-13 07:34 (UTC)

next conky may not support nvidia - we can use nvidia-smi to get nvidia information.

paramvir commented on 2018-06-13 15:19 (UTC)

Great - I got what you mean - let me check this in my morning and then update this pesky thing ;-))

It probably builds fine for you because you already have git and xinerama installed on your build host (check pacman -Q git libxinerama), and thus cmake finds and uses them. As I'm building in a clean chroot however that is not the case for my build environment, which means building fails due to unsatisfied dependencies during cmake: (the same error occurs for xinerama once I add git to makedepends)

paramvir commented on 2018-06-12 23:52 (UTC)


I feel we can leave the things as they are - I have tested and I have no issues with cmake and do not require the additions as you have suggested.

There is an issue with nvidia as I have had to switch to older support nivdia drivers and conky cannot handle that in the git version - it is working on the release version though.

I have kept this version light and left out the docs as the docbook add to the bulk...

From the static I am picking up from the conky github thing - 1.10.9 will have some issues - let's wait for that release :-)

I must thank you for the tips n support ;-))

Take a look at this patch I made: Builds fine in a clean chroot. Also builds documentation now (cmake switch MAINTAINER_MODE). Set pkgrel back to 1 for release ;)

Cheers :)

paramvir commented on 2018-06-04 16:07 (UTC)

Yeah sure - need to change to the newer version - shall look into this as well.


wuestengecko commented on 2018-06-04 15:49 (UTC)

Please add libxinerama to depends and git to the makedepends for the release version - for some reason cmake wants to have it.

paramvir commented on 2017-07-11 11:32 (UTC)

Updated to release 2 - this fixes the gcc 7x breakage for conky.
