Conky example of personalization

You have to change wlp2s0 with your own wifi device obtained with

iw dev

I’m sorry but I can’t yet upload an example image :confused: :confused:

where is my wlp2s0 ?

and i have no ```
conky.config


thank u

Hi @Fires,

You can start by reading Basic Tips for conky to set up your conky config.

wlp2s0 refers to the network interface name. As @jimmy-red mentioned in his post, you can use iw dev or ip link show to list all interfaces.

I share my configuration for Conky and an image too.

It uses Font Awesome 5 for the icons so either ttf-font-awesome or otf-font-awesome needs to be installed on your system.

@vcottineau

thank u very much

So Just replace conky.config with urs ?

it looks like i am missing something
i cant find conky under ~/.config/conky/conky.conf

You can create this file by yourself or generate a default config file:

mkdir -p ~/.config/conky && conky --print-config > ~/.config/conky/conky.conf

This command comes from ArchWiki: Conky - ArchWiki
