• Conky rss stopped working


    I’ve been working on one of my conky windows whilst waiting for new installer for another machine I just received.

    All the sudden rss feed in conky window stopped working.
    I never got around to putting something in I care about, but the feed worked non the less for last couple years .

    I thought it was something I did in the script, but I put one of the lines in a different conky window and still just shows ${rss} in all the lines.

    The links still seem to be good when testing in a browser.

    The only other things I did was install conky-cairo so I could figure out lua rings
    just in the last week or so, but I wouldn’t think lua script would cause anything?

    I switched back to regular conky but still doesn’t show.

    Just wondering if anyone had any ideas or have same problem.

  • Ok, lets put rss aside for the moment, Instead let me ask if there is a way to put scroll bars in a conky window?

    Also, what window does conky use? Does it call an xterm window?
    I ask bc of the icon in the corner of what I’m working on and would like to make it scrollable…up/down like any other window.

    I’d like to make Conky-Sandwich the best it can be lol
