• Full Distro & Version Names in Conky

    I find Antergos to be the best distro for me after usng linux exclusively for about 6 years. I appreciate all the work the devs do to provide it. I can’t figure out how to get conky to display “Antergos” instead of “Arch Linux.” I am using the “distribution” variable in the .conkyrc file.

  • is that something like lsb_release -a ?

    “distribution” variable in the .conkyrc

    The name of the distribution. It could be that some of the untested distributions will show up wrong or as "unknown", if that's the case post a bug on sourceforge, 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.
  • Yes, ringo32, although what I really want to display in conky is what you get with lsb_release -d.

  • Yes, joekamprad, I was aware of the note you cited, but there is nothing in the proc/version file, and I did not know what else to submit for the bug report.

  • ${exec lsb_release -sir}

    should work…
