Conky help please

Post by benji » Sat Sep 08, 2012 2:33 am

Hey guys!
I just put in linux mint yesterday.. I figured that since I am now taking a linux course, I should use it on my own machine to get used to it.
I've actually grown to really love the OS. I didn't like Ubuntu too much because I found it a little slow. So I put in Mint instead and wow it is amazing!
I saw this picture of conky online... ... lendar.png
I would really like to set mine up like that!
I really like the calandar, and I've even made a list of quotes to show up underneath the calandar!
I also like the widgets on the side though, and I have not quite figured out how to set all of this up. I so far spent 10 hours on this. (I really wanted to learn.)

The only problem though is that I really cant figure out how to set conky up like that.
I've tried several instruction lists, and tried my best to follow them word for word, but it just wasn't going as they said it would or as I planned.

So do you guys think you could help me out? Maybe give me better instructions?

Thank you all so much for your time and consideration!

New Linux Fan :)
