Problem installing Conky

Postby Sanjima on Sun Sep 20, 2009 6:36 pm

I suppose I might've done something wrong, but I have no clue lol
I downloaded the 1.7.2 Conky package from the conky website, and extracted it to the desktop. I then followed the instructions from the site and ran ./configure from the ternimal with a few parameters that the website said to include.

It came up with this error:

Anyone have any thoughts? :<

Also I'm running Linux Mint 7 Gloria, Main Edition. with the Gnome desktop, as you can see.
I don't know if Conky works on Gnome, but I'm hoping it does. =\

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Did you, also:

After you have done what you did ... open a Text Editor and create a file " .Conkyrc " paste your conky specs in it and save it to your Home Folder

Then, open Terminal and type " conky " . . . and your Conky should appear.

Getting to open at Start-up is another matter. But, the Conky should open from Terminal.

:roll: I think this is all I did.

Sounds simple enough.. but why did I get that error?
And what do you mean by "your conky specs"?

The best place to learn how to compile your own Conky or use someone elses Conky, and make changes for your computer is:

In the Ubuntu forums or the LinuxMint Forums . . . do a 'search' for Conky.

Here: viewtopic.php?f=60&t=30209

And, of course, the Conky websites:

http://conky.sourceforge.net/index.html
http://conky.linux-hardcore.com/

I compiled/made my own Conky. I was lots of fun making it. :mrgreen: Good Luck !!
