    Re: HOW TO: A Beginners Guide to Setting up Conky

    I was puzzled about finding a list of colours until I looked at this guide

    How To: Configuring Conky

    which explained that you can use the HTML colour set. A list of Colour Names with hex equivalents can be found here:

    HTML Color Names


    Hope this helps other n00bs like me!

    Nice stuff and would fit better in the threads mentioned in my first post. As the idea here is not how to configure conky but how to set it up for the first time.

    HOWEVER, having said that. It is a nice addition here as this is obviously a place new conky users will look, and this comes after the setup.

    So, Thank you for the post.

    Hi Negatifo

    Welcome to Ubuntu, you are going to love it.

    No to be disrespectful or a bad guy but can you repost your question in one of the following threads. There are a lot of people there that will be helping you and quite a few know more about conky than I do.

    1. Post your .conkyrc files w/ screenshots
    2. Howto: Get a beautiful Conky 1.4.2 setup
    Have a nice day.

    Re: HOW TO: A Beginners Guide to Setting up Conky

    edit: got the conky running but when i get to this part of the instructions:

    Terminal:Code:

    chmod a+x ~/.startconky

    File Manager:
    Right click on ~/.startconky > Properties > Permissions > check the box necessary to make it executable.


    I dont know where to find ~/.startconky after running the terminal code
