conky_box_remix_v0.1 by LovelyBacon conky_box_remix_v0.1 by LovelyBacon
Doing a remix of ~giancarlo64 excellent Conky_Box [link]

Probably horribly coded :) Set for 1366x768, using audacious as music player, but tried to use many ${goto} ' s so should be easingly editable using scripts
3 conkyrc's for the 1, 1&3 and 1-3 boxes

how to install it?

what distro are you on?

1. First you have to install the conky program itself (google: YOUR_DISTRO install conky)

2. Then extract the zip file to a folder and place it where you like.

3. After you installed conky, there should be a file called .conkyrc in your home folder ( ~/ or /home/USERNAME), open it in a text editor.

4. copy everything from conkyONEBOX to ~/.conkyrc

5. then open ~/.conkyrc in a text editor and edit the path for a) clock_rings.lua and b) the *.png images

6. if it doesn't look right you might be missing some fonts. Look in ~/.conkyrc for fonts that are used. Google their name and download (usually *.ttf files). Then place the *.ttf in ~/.fonts, and run the terminal command sudo fc-cache -fv

Then you should have it running, but mind, if you have another resolution than 1366x768 then the promo picture might look like a tv-dinner box compared to reallity. In that case you have to edit the whole ~/.conkyrc to the right size and position.

Have fun :)

You might want to update to at LEAST Kernel 3.5, you're a few versions behind the times. ;) [link]
