Yes the blue is a little hard to read. Still a work in progress as is with every conky.

for cpu temp. It works for me when acpi fails in newer kernels.

Mine is a pentium 4 single core processor. Edit the "Core 0" part to fit your multi processors like "Core 1", "Core 2", etc......

Just another one you can try also that I use in case the above does not work for you.

This is my older AntiX 8.5 install with Fluxbox only with Conky and a Tint2 panel. I have byteonpanel running near top of tint2 under the clock as a network monitoring tool for wlan0. Conky is a bit bigger because of screen real estate (14") on this IBM t23 laptop.

Right now. I launch byteonpanel in tint2 manually (I just installed it to see if it works in tint2) by left clicking in rox file mnager
~/byteonpanel-0.1.0/byteonpanel.py

and seen in screenshot. It launches and works in tint2 panel. I have tint2 panel set to autohide till I mouse over on it also.

Struggling with figuring out how to auto-launch , byteonpanel.py, with slim login into fluxbox and have it autostart in tint2. Still learning. :snail:

Update: get a static .py to autostart in fluxbox.



I moved the byteonpanel-0.1.0 folder to /opt first in rox file manager from ~/byteonpanel-0.1.0 using root terminal to open rox file manager as root. Just drag and drop with 2 root rox file managers open.

The I opened /opt/byteonpanel-0.1-.0 to see the byteonpanel.py. I went to the other root rox file manager window and maneuvered to /usr/bin. I dragged and dropped the /opt/byteonpanel-0.1-.0/ byteonpanel.py to /usr/bin and picked symlink (relative)

closed everything. Went to add startup in my menu (I added this in AntiX 8.5 menu a long time ago).

added into ~//fluxbox/startup text file.

Code: Select all

#Here is where we start byteonpanel.py
sleep 2 && byteonpanel.py &


Return to “antiX”
