Conky on my Gutsy

Posted by thio4linux on November 2, 2007

…a light weight system monitor!!!

Conky is a system monitor that run on your desktop or on in a windows like every other program. Maybe you know karamba that is a very good app but conky is very light and easily configurable.

Download Conky from the repo: (sudo apt-get install Conky) or look at the procedure from the official site: http://conky.sourceforge.net/

Then put the configuration file in your home:
sudo zcat /usr/share/doc/conky-1.4.0-r1/conkyrc.sample.gz ~/.conkyrc(subs 1.4.0-r1 with your version).

Now look at the variable page on this site: http://conky.sourceforge.net/variables.html
and at the setting file here: http://conky.sourceforge.net/variables.html

Now you can configure your Conky with the config file: kate ~/.conkyrc
I’ve found a problem with the desktop icons when conky referehses. If you have the same problem modify .conkyrc in this way:
own_window 1
own_window_type override
own_window_transparent 1

this my conky:

conkyThio

my conkyrc: .conky.odt
(dowload the file and rename it .conkyrc… then put it on your home and lauch conky)
