    Unity + Conky?

    I've tried searching but haven't found if conky is working with unity.
    So, my question is firstly, is it?
    And, secondly, can someone walk me through the installation? I tried to follow guides on Ubuntu 10.04 but it crashed my OS.
    Thanks.

    Yes , the conky-all package is running in unity as I type , but have not tried any configuration scripts yet . I'm sill in the hunt for a good tutorial .

    Conky: invalid configuration file '/home/david/.conkyrc'

    Conky: missing text block in configuration; exiting

    I have my Conky running ! The instructions I used stated that a folder be made in hidden folders for the .conkyrc and this was the problem. I simply had to copy and paste the newly named .conkyrc into the home directory with no folder. I chose this theme because I'm running unity.

    This is the method I used for a Conky theme.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install conky-all
    Copy and paste text from the theme download page to Gedit , save as .conkyrc and save to home . Open terminal , type conky and select enter.
