When upgrading from Ubuntu 14.04 to 16.04 my Conky scripts were automatically converted from Conky 1.9 format to new Conky 1.10 format but they were broken and won't run under Conky 1.10. So I downgraded Conky from 1.10 to 1.9 which Ubuntu 14.04 uses.
However I only downgraded
conky-std and not
conky-all. Now I want to get nvidia-settings GPU Mhz, Memory Mhz, Memory usage and Temperature statistics in Conky and the easiest method is with
When I try to install older 14.04 version with:
sudo apt-get install conky-all=1.9.0-4
as instructed in: askubuntu…how-to-downgrade-a-package-via-apt-get, I get the bad news:
Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done E: Version '1.9.0-4' for 'conky-all' was not found
This didn't happen a few weeks ago when I purged
conky-all 1.10.1-3 and installed
conky-std 1.9.0-4 and froze it.
On the page: ubuntu.com/trusty/conky-all under Ubuntu 14.04 (Trusty) the
conky-all 1.9.0-4 version exists and relevant documentation is all there so it's not as if support for Trusty package is gone.
apt-cache policy conky-all reveals:
conky-all: Installed: (none) Candidate: 1.10.1-3 Version table: 1.10.1-3 500 500 http://ca.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu xenial/universe amd64 Packages
apt-cache policy conky-std reveals:
conky-std: Installed: 1.9.0-4 Candidate: 1.10.1-3 Version table: 1.10.1-3 500 500 http://ca.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu xenial/universe amd64 Packages *** 1.9.0-4 100 100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
- Should I manually go about installing it outside of apt-get?
- Should I link to a different PPA and apt-get that way?
- Are the Ubuntu packages temporarily broken and only showing
conky-allversion 1.10 today and will be fixed tomorrow? (yeah wishful thinking of a procrastinator).
Thanks to any conky experts that may be watching out there!
