Conky-colors Plus on Fedora 11

The below describes how to install Conky-colors Plus on Fedora 11. You can have a look how it generally looks like at its original web site.

Prepare for the installation:

Download conky_colors.tar.gz from http://www.webupd8.org/2009/05/how-to-install-and-configure-conky.html to ~/software/.

You can now tune .conkyrc doing any time:

However, you can edit ~/.conkyrc on yourself. I did not install the original looks from conky-colors but used some of its advanced features for certain elements.

My live .conkyrc id below. Get the Fedora image used in my configuration:

gedit ~/.conkyrc
