Could some please tell me how to modify conky? I have the conkyrc file in my home directory but none of the changes I made make any difference.

I suggest you could possibly read these. I know I do sometimes. [click here] (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=281865&highlight=conky) :)

Once you have edited .conkyrc you must kill the current conky you have running and restart it for changes to take effect.

Right, also here's a tip. If you want conky to launch when you login to your desktop session then all you have to do is..

System > Preferences > Startup Applications

Unlock it and add conky to the list and it should startup. If you have any problems with anything, you can pm me or reply. I will be glad to help. :-)

You should change the ".conkyrc" file in you home directory (aka "~").
