      hey, install Conky through the ubuntu software center or the internet and after that everything is pretty simple. Just walk yourself through the set up after install.

  4. It’s weird to see how conky has evolved in a couple of years…

    I remember, 3 years ago : only a rectangle side bar was possible. I never looks to it after, until now.

    Thanks for the listing !
