Conky by helmuthdu 931 comments

Hi all,

thanks for this post. I followed the instructions as per the post, but still get the basic, original (and quite ugly!) conky black window. when running conky -c ~/.conkycolors/conkyrc , I get the message:

Conky: invalid configuration file '/home/martin/.conkycolors/conkyrc'

Conky: desktop window (c00021) is subwindow of root window (ab)
Conky: window type - desktop
Conky: drawing to created window (0x4200001)
Conky: drawing to single buffer

For some reason it is not recognising the configuration file at all and just running the original config for conky. I have NOT edited the configuration file at all (conkyrc). I am quite new to linux so no idea how to troubleshoot... I am using Linux Mint Cinnamon 13.

This seemed to be the best thread on easily configuring conky so I hope iit can be easily worked out!

many thanks in advance for your time and help
