How to incorporate and change a conky into ArcoLinux – creation of JA-Phone

Jesse Avalos or Speedracker has been a contributor of many nice conkies in the past. In this video we will download one of his conkies from deviantart and learn how to incorporate a conky in ArcoLinux.

We rename the conkies to the conventions we use and with extension .conkyrc

Then we start to read the code and delete anything that is not needed.

Own_window_type is the most important one!!


The font seemed to be copyright free so we added it to arcolinux-fonts-git package.

Then we start to work with all the positions and sizes of the elements. You could change colors too if you like. We kept it white.

 The others have been created in a super speedy way with the applicaton MELD.
