Some tips about Conky

If you have any querie, don't hesitate to ask.
I'll have to give it a try :)
Yeah! Conky is pretty neat. I had it on several Linux distros with plenty of awesome themes. If I remember right, I had Conky Colors.
If you really want to see some nice work take a look here in the forums
Nice tutorial, but "Conky" doesn't work for me. Has issues with "Compiz" it makes my windows multiply when dragged
My desktop looks better now. ;)
Very good! Nice and easy..
Now, it's simply !
This theme looks very nice!
and this tutorial is easy for newbie to understand!
Excellent, I put on my desktop. after, I install Conky via Synaptic.P.M.
The dancing penguin is ace,made me laugh anyway.any tutorial is always good for us newbies.
I fixed the RC file.
Thank you @edem
There's a couple of tweaks/fixes for your rc. First, there's no such thing as border_margin; use border_inner_margin and border_outer_margin instead. Second, if you use own_window_type, then the own_window_hints setting will be ignored - works better with own_window_type desktop. Also, the rc tries to run ~/.scripts/ip.sh, which isn't included in the pack.
Apart from these, it's a very nice design, and works as a charm.
Elisa says "What about to mention about other way or style to place those information? "
This is only possible if there is a way to upload or post your own .conkyrc
I personal think it's easier to do this on one of the Forums of the Local Communities
I changed the Link.
These are the download links
I reupload them
Try to download them again and if it doesn't work sent me a message with your email, and i'll sent you the file
Good idea,i'll think about it when i'll have some free time.I'm kind of busy right now. ;-)
I suppose it'd be better to upload once and to more servers in one shot :P like here:
The download link says the file is unavailable.
What about to mention about other way or style to place those information? Other style than those bars with that large grey-background bar? :O :)
