MX Conky is a tool whose goal is to render the use and customization of conky scripts available to a wider and non-technical audience. It consists of a gui program and an associated data file of conkies legacy versions that have been tested and edited for use in MX Linux. The default conkies can be viewed in the Conky Images gallery.
I'm trying to create a bottom panel with conky that will replace LXDE's panel. Right now I have everything set up adequately except for having the conky panel appear on the bottom. I apologize if this is the wrong place to be posting in about conky assistance, but this section of the forum has helped me a ton in getting familiar with Arch, so its my safe guess for now.
At first blush, Conky is a system monitor that will display pertinent information on your desktop. When you peel past the top layer, you will see Conky is actually much more than that. Not only can Conky display information about your CPU, memory, swap, disk space, temperature, top, upload, download, system messages… it can display things like world time, calendars, email notifications, weather, battery status… the list goes on and on.
I just started using conky with its own window so I can display graphsand I want it to dock at the bottom of the screen instead of the top. Panel windows reserve space along a desktop edge, just like panels and taskbars, preventing maximized windows from overlapping them. The edge is chosen based on the alignment option.
After this begins text to be formatted on screen. This can be useful for cleaning up config files where conky is used to pipe input to dzen2. Boolean value, if true, Conky will be forked to background when started.
To monitor the different resources of my local system I use conky. After you installed the conky software you can start with the configuration of it. At the left side there is a pane which only monitors my system resources.
How about a neat way of keeping a close eye on CPU temperature, network usage and hard drive utilization? At the core of this beautiful desktop experience is Conky. Conky is essentially a system monitoring tool.
