Conky manager

Postby asabbah » 2015-10-17 15:32

Hello,

I am trying to find conky manager in the standard repo but couldn't. There are other sources on the web, but I am not interested in playing with configurations. I am a newbie.

Any help?

Before doing anything, read the Debian documentation:

Conky manager? I don't know what that is. My Conky uses a script at ~/.conkyrc. It is manually configured. As GarryRicketson suggested, plug "conky" into a search engine; there's lots of info and suggestions.

I've just installed the (Debian) .deb file [1] in my jessie system with no problems using:
Code: Select all
# gdebi conky-manager-latest-amd64.deb

It seems to run but it's a bit buggy (GNOME desktop)...

Thanks, I wanted to play safe and use the standard repository, but it seems this is the only way.


i installed from the attached archive, as the suggested repository generates errors.

The repository is only *suggested* for Ubuntu -- you are *not* using Ubuntu.

Make sure you use the Debian .deb file from the site.

Also, read this:

Yes, points to the OP for asking on how to handle it rather than just blindly adding the PPA, which would always be a gamble.

I have the original conky-manager and conkymanager2 (I renamed the 2.X version so both could be installed at once) for the Wheezy-based MEPIS 12 repo, and it's very popular. You can install .7z theme packs into it that allow for all kinds of customized conkys if the user doesn't want to fool around with the conkyrc syntax.

I see we need those rebuilt for the Jessie-based MX 15 repo, for which we have started some heavy development. We'll probably have a public beta next month.

Conky Manager is not available with Jessie, so if you want to stay within the stable environment, you have to configure Conky manually.

Or use the conky-manager/conky-manager2 packages from the MX 15 repository. The second package has few, if any themes included, so you'll have to install one of the theme packs.
