In this post i will show you step by step on how to install and configure this awesome conky script called Conky-Lua. The installation has been done in Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Precise Pangolin also tested in Ubuntu 12.10 and Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail. As usual, i tried to make the post newbies freindly
1- First of all we need to install conky, use the folowing command:
- For Ubuntu, LinuxMint and Debian use:
sudo apt-get install conky-all
-For Fedora use :
yum install conky-all
3- Now go to your Download folder and extract manually the file (double click on the archive or right click and select extract)
4- Now extract the 6 archives by selecting and extracting them
5- Now select the folder you need, for example if you want to install it on LinuxMint select Conky Mint-lua, for Ubuntu use Conky ubuntu-lua (In my case i`m installing this on Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin).
6-Now open the folder you chosed (For Ubuntu use : conky ubuntu-lua folder) and rename the file called conkyrc to .conkyrc, then move it to your home directory.
7- Now move the renamed file .conkyrc to your home directory
10- Now change the patch to the new one in the home folder (See screenshot bellow):
/~.lua/scripts/clock_rings.lua to ~/.conky/clock_rings.lua
11- Now open terminal and run conky
Update: If you are using wireless, and you want to have Net working on conky, edit .conkyrc and change eth0 with wlan0 (Thanks to Alius)
