Edit multiple Conkys
Since I’m always editing my conky files, and templates, I’ve created a couple of ~/.bashrc “alias” to make the task simple.
Because this involves “multiple” files open at the same time I have installed gEdit in my Xfce as Mousepad doesn’t do “Tabs”. Any “Tab” capable text editor will do, so if you use something different just change “gedit” in the aliases. Be sure to backup your ~/.bashrc file before making the changes.
Open ~/.bashrc in your text editor and add these lines, changing what you need to to match your setup:
# my aliases alias conke=’(gedit ~/Conky/scripts/ssc.sh ~/Conky/conkymain ~/Conky/conkyemail ~/Conky/conkytext ~/Conky/conkyforecast ~/Conky/conkyText.txt ~/Conky/bruloo.txt ~/Conky/scripts/myweather.template ~/Conky/scripts/conkyText.template &)’
I call the alias “conke” for conky edit.
That ssc.sh script can be seen in the Scripts: ssc.sh
Now just open a terminal and type:
And you can start editing.
