[HowTo]Add debian version in conky

Post by cpedretti »

Conky is a open source software desktop system monitor for the X Window System. It is available for Linux, FreeBSD, and OpenBSD. Source

My work are forked from Neon Cipher good tutorial => Conky System Monitor on My Desktop. How to Install and Configure It on Linux.

I add the code after the 85 line in the conky.conf file:

Code: Select all

sudo nano ~/.config/conky/conky.conf

Code: Select all

$font${color DimGray}Debian Version $alignr ${execi 30 cat /etc/debian_version}

The output:


Don't forget to adjust the config file with your material.

Here the forked config file in english:


if you encounter any inconsistencies with the amount of memory, just toggle "no_buffers" to yes in the conky.conf file, stop and start conky processu with the system monitor, open an terminal and write conky and enter to take effects.
