Conky, Music and CoverART
By: VastOne

A SPECIAL NOTE: First and foremost, this work is based on the development of 3 sources. Kaivalagi Python Scripts and a wlourf LUA sphere script that started on the Ubuntu Threads, as well as a script by larryni for the rounded covert. All I did was take the genesis of these and expand upon them to create several more current applications

Two methods of using Conky, with python or LUA scripts, and currently any of 18 Linux Music apps and Cover Art from local sources;

Online support: The place to ask for support and discuss these scripts:
