Can't get Katya software manager to install Conky

Postby NicoleCtrl on Mon Jun 27, 2011 5:13 pm

I tried installing Conky-all. It says it installed but I can't find it anywhere. I went to the start menu and typed "conky" in the search but nothing comes up. If I restart software manager, it says the program has been installed. Can't figure out if it really did install or, if it did, how I'm supposed to access it.

Thanks! Sorry if I posted in the wrong area.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Welcome to LinuxMint!
Open a terminal and type conky, what happens?

Hi, thanks : ) Looks like Conky was installed after all because typing that into the terminal brought it up.

Thanks, that was very helpful and got me off to a good start. I watched it all. I'm now using Hanna's script on page 1 of that Crunchbang thread. If you have a moment could you tell me step-by-step how to download the required fonts sets and the script/applications (like Conkyexaile, whatever that is) needed to get Hanna's .conkyrc to fully work on my computer?
