Conky and Ghost

Postby ward » Tue Mar 07, 2017 10:33 pm

Hi,

Hey, I'm a graphic artist at large who is just getting back to the game. I'm up and running with 10.3 and thought I would share my conky.conf. Just install conky from OctoPkg (wrong about that:

Code: Select all
sudo pkg install conky
.

It's an awesome system monitor and I found an old version of CrunchBang Linux's config (a great linux distro which is dead now) and adapted it first to Ubuntu with Cinnamon and now Ghost with XFCE.

You'll find some commented out parts for different compositor setups.

If you are not into XMMS2 yet, I suggest you get it.

Code: Select all
# conky configuration
#
# The list of variables has been removed from this file in favour
# of keeping the documentation more maintainable.
# Check http://conky.sf.net for an up-to-date-list.
#
# For ideas about how to modify conky, please see:

#
# For help with conky, please see:

# Enjoy! :)

It is so nice of you for sharing here old version of CrunchBang Linux's config and adapted it first to Ubuntu with Cinnamon and now Ghost with XFCE. It is very helpful to IT students who are getting personal statement writer service from experts at Personal Statement Folks.
