Conky GUI software
« on: April 05, 2017, 11:48:41 am »
found this usefull softwar named Conky Manager that you can use to manage your conky setup and do manipulations like changin the conky's position,transparency,background color...etc  in a simple way with a user interface (it also allows you to easily import new themes and has an auto-start option).
install commands :
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-add-repository -y ppa:teejee2008/ppa

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install conky-manager

more informations (Software's DEB files and extra theme pack...etc) can be found here :  http://www.teejeetech.in/p/conky-manager.html

here is a screenshot of my current desktop after including 2 conky widgets (left one is "gotham" and right one is "cubes conky") :

Hi penrose1950.

and don't forget to install the conky all package

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install conky-all

else a lot of scripts you try and download won't work correctly.
