After you install conky you have to setup a .conkyrc file in your home directory which is read by conky. Here you can get some ideas http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=60&t=30209 http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=60&t=30209 and check out the conky home page http://conky.sourceforge.net/

you have to launch conky, too (type conky in run dialog or terminal), and after configured right preferrably put it to autostart
