Setting Conky on Jolicloud

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Its my 1st time using Conky and I'm a bit confused on how to do some things...

1: Where/how do I enter any commands for this once it has been installed? I did not compile from source so I don't have a conkyrc file.
2: Set it to lower right/left
3: Set it to transparent
4: extend the height
5: Set it so it does not disappear behind the Chromium DE when clicking my desktop. If this means windowing it, then I'm fine with that.

Thanks!

EDIT: Added screenshot. This is what it looks like now... as you can see, seems out of place.

compiling from source shouldnt make any difference, should be a .conkyrc file in ~ if you dont see it then do an ls -a because it has the dot making it invisible
Kinda meh now...

I would recommend getting a pre-set .conkyrc and editing it instead. It is much easier, you can find a few (including my base config) in our ocnix section or google it. Trust me, it is MUCH easier.

CTRL+H (show hidden files) is on, these are my search results... where the heck is it?

Kinda looks like gedit'ing conky.conf might do the trick... but thats not what the website for conky said to do :/

You create a .conkyrc! ~/.conkyrc as I said, you really want to use one that somebody already set up as an example.
