Conky Manager - Unable To Install

Post by timhepworth »

I'm trying to get into Conky as a beginner and I've installed Conky via the terminal but after doing some research I've found out you can make everything a lot easier by using Conky Manager. I've followed loads of YouTube instruction to get Conky manager installed but non of them will work. Thank got for snapshots :-)

Does anyone have any instructions or could give advice on how to install it? I'm using Mint Cinnamon 19.2

Thanks for any advice :-)

Now you've installed Conky from the terminal you need to:

1. install realpath (you might find it in the repos, if not perhaps try link here: http://launchpadlibrarian.net/340091846 ... u4_all.deb)
2. install conky manager (you'll want the top link: https://github.com/teejee2008/conky-manager/releases)
3. Now you need to run the conky manager (it should be in the menu after installing) and you can tinker with conky via the GUI

*Note: I did this on Mint Xfce 19.2 without any issues but if you're not sure perhaps wait and see if anyone else chips in. I do believe that the two sources are reliable.
