Aspire One – Conky

August 11, 2008 at 2:51 pm 1 comment

To start Conky on your Aspire One, you first need to disable the Acer desktop:

(or follow this tutorial to shut your Acer desktop permanent off: here , but I do not recommend using it because there are some problems with it)

kill the process xfdesktop2 (Ctrl+Alt+Del)

Then open your terminal and type:

xfdesktop-xfce

Your xfce desktop will now appear on your screen with some icons. Now start up:

System -> Add/Remove Software (in advanced menu)
Search for “conky” and install the fedora 8 package.

Now you need to place your .conkyrc configuration file in your homefolder called:

/home/user/

Then open your terminal and type:

conky

Conky should now run.

NOTE: After reboot everything will be resetted

(I still need to figure out how to start conky from script)
