Thanks for sharing, this is the only conky I've come across in a long while that I actually feel like running on my system. But I have a problem - running on Ubuntu with Unity and Nautilus handling the desktop, I get blurring and distortion of fonts when using the "override" setting for own_window. If I use "dock" it doesn't seem to happen, but then the global menubar does not function properly. Is there anything I can do in the conky rc itself to make sure the fonts render properly? I googled, but turned up nothing so far. Btw the blurring seems to be triggered when I launch some apps, like image viewer, background chooser, etc. Thanks.
its a beautful conky setup... but lol i am new to linux and conky...and i cant seem to find the conkyrc file.. and i followed the steps but i maybe doing something wrong with extablishing the path to the files..
sorry for the late answer mate!! the easiest way is to put really icons hidden 'under Conky', the most difficult is to use the script I use in this conky to start it: [link] and repeat for each shortcut .. hard job but nice!.
