installed Conky but can't find it

I just installed Conky-all from the software manager but i can't find it anyway to run it, where does it go once it's installed?

It should start from terminal if you type
Code: Select all
conky

It can also be added to your startup applications via MintMenu>Control Centre>Startup Applications
Hope that helps

As a 'rule of thumb . . . I think this works in Ubuntu/Mint and Debian, when you can't file an App. or File go to the CLI (command line)

In a Terminal type > man find (this will give you the manual for the "find" application, that comes pre-installed.

To find a specific App or File, in a Terminal type > find <filename>
No need to use 'sudo' as you do not need to be a 'root' user for this.
