B> Ok. I still get "Conky: tail logfile does not exist, or you do not have correct permissions".

I'm a little confused. What is the command you are giving that is generating the error message?

$conky or #conky or /usr/local/bin/conky

If I want Synaptic, all I type is #synaptic. So, for Conky, all I should need is $conky, right? Is there some wierd trick to this one?

I was looking through the sample conkyrc and found this line:

${tail /var/log/Xorg.0.log 3 30}


Is that my problem? I use XF86. I don't have Xorg.

I really don't see why this program is such a problem. I have no trouble with torsmo, which is the foundation for conky. I thould all I would have to do is upgrade. Guess not.

Thanks for the help with Conky, especially Harold. For the time being, I've gone back to Torsmo. I'll have to upgrade it eventually; Conky is the upgrade for Torsmo, but it doesn't seem ready for me yet. Another six months I suppose.

Sorry, Bulkley, but I am totally stumped. I am unable to reproduce the error message that you are getting, and you've done everything that I've asked you to do. Maybe something will come to me in a couple of days, but for now...

That's good, I've changed log file in conky.c: XOrg.0.log to XFree86.0.log, configure & make it again and everything is OK :)
