Somebody know this problem and how to fix it ?
Thanks


My conky setup that worked in LMDE doesn't work in Mint 12 either. Anyone has a solution?

did either of you redownload the fonts required to run the clocks and what not? Most of those things are font sets and the font library on mint isn't all that big really. Just a thought.

I didn't install ant fonts on LMDE while I used that, and I don't know if there are any differences between this in LMDE and Mint 12.

Here's my updated version, pretty happy with it now. I'm using the Awoken White icon pack with the latest version of linux mint 12.

Awoken Folder Icon's:

To customize the Awoken icon theme pack do this:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:alecive/antigone
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install awoken-icon-theme
awoken-icon-theme-customization

Then Follow Instructions.

I went from Mint 11 with Conky working fine to Mint 12 experiencing the same issue as jompa89. My Lua bindings are the same, see below.
Anyone know why Conky doesn't work properly in Mint 12? I have Cinnamon running in my install. Could that be an issue?
