When you go this this webiste: http://www.teejeetech.in/p/conky-manager.html you see when you scroll down that there's a theme package available with more conky's. Download that file and import that theme package in conky-manager.

The code is saved in an "rc" file that can be named anything really, and you instruct conky to use the rc file thusly:
Code: Select all
conky -c /path/to/rc


Advice: Don't expect anyone else's rc file to work out of the box for you.
Except for the most basic RCs, they will need to be "adjusted", trust me.

If you are logging in as "mint" then
Code: Select all
conky -c /home/mint/.cronkyrc
