Conky/Conky-all

Postby exmix on Mon Oct 08, 2012 3:55 am

In the software manager I see both. I added conky-all due to its rating. I run it nut how exactly do I edit it? I can't right click and find nothing for it in the menu.

You have to modify .conkyrc in your home directory.
Check out this thread from the crunchbang linux forums for example configurations (they include conky by default and most of the stuff should work in Mint, too):

I tried crunchbang before so I know how to edit it and all but I don't have a .conkyrc in my home folder.

You have to make your own .conkyrc file and add it to the ~/home folder in the File Manager.

There is a good Conky Show-Off Thread here in the LinuxMint Forums > viewtopic.php?f=212&t=30209&hilit=conky+showoff

Visit this thread and 'borrow' a nice .conkyrc script and add it your FM.
You can play with it and customize to your liking.

How do I go about making the .conkyrc file? and I assume the ~/home folder is my Exmix folder?
