how to get conky on LM 19 Tara [SOLVED]

Post by dudesplace » Fri Dec 14, 2018 6:32 pm

How can I get Conky and Conky-Manager on Linux Mint 19 Tara?
I have it on antiX 17.2 Stretch, and on much older laptop and have a basic version on Mint 18.3 Cinnamon.
But don't see in repos.
deb install would be best for me as I am newb, But a ppa will do if that is all I can get.

conky-all is in software manager for mint 19, at least it was when I installed it, 29 Oct according to my logs. conky-manager can be installed by following the instructions here:

https://www.linuxbabe.com/ubuntu/instal ... 6-04-17-04
Homebrew i5-8400+GTX1080 Cinnamon 19.0, 3 x Thinkpad T430 Cinnamon 19.0, i7-3632 , i5-3320, i5-3210, Thinkpad T60 19.0 Mate

For conky-manager teejee is not working on the project anymore. And so there will not be a universe repository version past Ubuntu 16.04 Xenial I would guess.

But here is a fork, originally written as a patch to conky-manager to add support for 1.10 conky version, but that does work on Ubuntu 18.04 / Mint 19 : https://github.com/zcot/conky-manager2

It is easy to install, just copy/paste from the instruction, but let us know if anything is unclear about that.

note: origin patch info: https://github.com/teejee2008/conky-manager/pull/3
