Conky is a free, light-weight system monitor for X, that displays any information on your desktop.

CONKY-colors is an easier way to configure Conky.

This conky script support multilanguage: Bulgarian, English, German, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Ukrainian

How to install

Go to a terminal and type:

$sudo apt-get install aptitude python-statgrab python-keyring ttf-ubuntu-font-family hddtemp curl lm-sensors conky-all
$sudo chmod u+s /usr/sbin/hddtemp
$sudo sensors-detect #answering Yes (default) to all questions, even that last one that defaults to No

Now restart your session.

Download and extract the conky-colors.tar.gz and type in terminal in the same directory that has been extracted.

$make
$sudo make install
$conky-colors {options}

Ex: if your cpu is quad-core and you want the noble color, with hd, network and pidgin monitor and all in portuguese

conky-colors --theme=noble --lang=en --cpu=4 --network --hd=default --pidgin

For a working weather script you NEED to define, in a user specific config file, a partner id and registration code for the weather.com xoap service. For this purpose copy .conkyForecast.config in /usr/share/conkycolors folder to your home and setup as required.

bbcweather/yahooweather widget don't need any kind of registration

For a working photo widget you need to specify a file or directory in conkyPhoto or conkyPhotoRandom script in ~/.conkycolors/bin/

Update your font cache:

$sudo fc-cache -v -f
