Me encanta, aunque para ponerlo en marcha he precisado buscar un poco por la red. Pero una vez hecho queda genial y además consume pocos recursos.

It is a whole sounder of swine to set up, but once it is working I like having the info available.

This is exactly what I was looking for, but, out of the box, this not working for me on Mint 19.1 Xfce, but I am completely new to Linux so I might be missing something. I will poke around to see what I can do.

Not working for me, too. It says "desktop window (1200003) is subwindow of root window (299)" - "window type - desktop" - "drawing to created window (0x4800001)", but no window appears. Linux Mint 19.1 Xfce 32-bit.

Won't shut down properly, can't even kill it from the terminal - the image stays frozen on the desktop. Fix that and I'll give it at least 4 stars.

in Mint18 install ppa:teejee2008/ppa refresh cache then install conky-manager You can also try to fix tranparency issue in some widgets Open theme folder then edit conky_seamod (for example) search "own_window_argb_visual no" replace to "#own_window_argb_visual no" or just delete it

Also so wie auf dem Screenshot hätte ich das auch gerne. Leider habe ich nur ein unschönes schwarzes Fenster mit unschöner Schrift und keine Möglichkeit irgendwie was einzustellen.

Incredibly awesome program. Incredibly annoying to configure.

Very useful, but the user experience is the worst imaginable so I'll give it 4 stars instead of 5.

Запуск производится через '/usr/bin/conky' но черт побери как использовать ?

Might be the best system monitor, but the user-friendliness is poor. Without a GUI setup a no reactions to mouse clicking, this is hardly usable for a regular consumer.
