Another very clean & subtle desktop! How did you manage to run, multiple conky processes though?

P.S Oneiric is shipping with GTK3 backend, so Unity will be a little more customizable, because it will have Gnome 3 as well, as classic, IIRC. Don't qute me on that, but it will definitely have GTK3 support. So the fall back buttons for windows decorations and things will finally be able to use the custom themes..

Sorry for the late response. To run multiple Conky instances all you have to do is call both instances separately. So, is you have two Conky configuration files, let's say, conkyrc1 and conkyrc2 you'll have to run

conky -c conkyrc1 &
conky -c conkyrc2 &

BTW, thanks for the :+fav: and the comment.

Ah! Thanks a bunch, so having .conkyrc would run one instance of Conky correct? and then if I made another .conkyrc called .conkyrc1 that would run another instance correct? Thanks!

Would I just add the commands "conky -c conkyrc1 &" and "conky -c conkyrc2" etc etc, to the start-up applications?

Not a problem (:

Yeah, you got it right. If you want to have multiple instances of Conky running from start you can add a line for each instance or you could have just one entry like this

sh -c "conky -c conkyrc ; conky -c conkyrc1"

It's a nice setup, clear and elegant! :D I think you will be forced to try Unity on Oneiric since Gnome 2 will not be included (which is bad because my old Desktop PC can't even run Unity 2D decently >_< bummer)

Well, you'd probably try Gnome-Shell or Pantheon-Shell on Oneiric which seem to be good alternatives to Unity (and Gnome-Shell is, at least to some extent, customizable). By the way, thanks for both the comment and the :+fav:!

You are welcome :) BTW did not know they released Pantheon XD i'll try it out right now :) thanks for the advice

Actually, I think Pantheon is not ready yet. You can install it from ppa's just for testing, but even if it's not stable yet it's looking good.

Really cool! But it's natty without unity?
Reply

Yes. I've been using the Ubuntu Classic Session (GNOME 2.32) on Natty because I didn't find Unity easy to customize (but I'm planning to give Unity on Oneiric a chance).
