Monitor your Ubuntu system with conky

Conky can display this info either as text, or using simple progress bars and graph widgets, with different fonts and colours.

So here I want to share steps required to install & configure conky. Here I’m using Ubuntu 10.04 as my OS.

After that, save that file.
On the terminal, type in “conky“, it’ll appear something like this:

Then, we want to make this conky autorun when login.
Go to System/Preferences/Startup Applications.Click on Add, type a name as you want e.g. “Conky” and “/usr/bin/conky” in command area (without quotes).

After that, try restart & login to your account. See your conky on your desktop.
