Conky and Panon not working


New Member

Processor: Ryzen 7 3700u

GPU: Radeon RX Vega 10 Graphics

Ram: 8GB

Storage: 512GB SSD

Operating System: Kubuntu 21.04

In this video I am trying to make a desktop but Conky and Panon are not working. Conky loading stages: 7:11 Panon loading stages: 16:40

When I type Conky in the console, I get this error:

Conky: Syntax error reading configuration file (/home/korhan11/.conkyrc:2: syntax error near 'yes').

Conky: Assuming it's in the old syntax and it's trying to convert.

Conky: [string "..."]:159: attempt to call zero Value (global 'loadstring')

When I load the Panon, it doesn't react when I add it to the desktop, and when I hide the background it disappears completely.

What’s in your .conkyrc?
It says there that it contains some errors and may be using old syntax.
Which probably just means that the .conkyrc you’re using has old, outdated syntax in it. It will need to be updated to use newer syntax in order to work.

As for panon, I have no idea what that is!
I haven’t had time to look at the video you’ve posted yet!
