Sands of Time Linux desktop by Flamer-Shaftglutton Sands of Time Linux desktop by Flamer-Shaftglutton
Saw this for Mac at [link] and wondered how easy it would be with Mint Linux. Turns out very easy if you know what you're doing, although it took me a week to figure out what I was doing.

This was my first venture into Conky (and Lua), but I'll definitely be doing more.

If you want to do this yourself (Linux only), just click 'download' and follow the readme. Sorry it's a .zip file; apparently DA doesn't like tarballs.

Anybody try to get this working on dual screen? when I try to move the clock over to the right hand screen the overlay is way out of alignment.

I found it, its in the overlay.lua, I had to adjust this line into the negatives to bring the overlay up:

imlib_context_set_image(image)
imlib_render_image_on_drawable(0,-455) <------ Original value was (0,171)
imlib_free_image()

Awsome work!!
But I was hoping that you could help me out to set the clock on a 24-hour time, not am/pm.?

:iconflamer-shaftglutton:
That's pretty easy to do. Open up the Clock file and alter the last line: change the I to an H, ${time %I:%M} to ${time %H:%M}.

the desktop icons behind the text and overlay are blocked by it on mine. any way to fix this?

As far as I know, Conky will always cover up your icons. You can try changing the size of the Conky window and moving the overlay around, but that will just reduce the area Conky covers up.

Unfortunately, I don't think there's any way around it. If I find anything I'll let you know.

Looks awesome!
Thanks for porting this to conky :-).

------------
Absolute paths are necessary, but you can use "~" for your /home/<username>/ in "clock" and "conky_start.sh".

Assuming you unzipped all to "~/.config/conky":
clock: lua_load ~/.config/conky/overlay.lua
conky_start.sh: sleep 20 && conky -c ~/.config/conky/clock


Put "overlay.png" in the same folder, and simply use the name of the overlay file in "overlay.lua":
image = imlib_load_image("overlay.png")
