I've been messing around with Conky for a while now and I recently started dabbling in Lua scripting. One of the things that used to bug me about a "flat"
conkyrc approach (as opposed to a combined
lua script) was that you had to set the position for everything using trial and error.
cairo I was hoping to avoid that: I get the screen resolution from
xdpyinfo and make all my dimensions relative to the screen resolution. The problem with this approach is that I still need to adjust the Conky window position from within the
conkyrc file and (as far as I know) it can't be done programmatically. So my question is, can I use the results from my
lua script to set Conky configuration variables like
gap_y? Or is there maybe another way to set these variables programmatically?
