    conky setup

    Hey! I found this nice conky theme, and i really want to try it.

    I have downloaded it and tried to install it. But it wont work. I got two text files, conkypi and conkypiclo and i dont know which i should put in conkyrc.

    i get an error message: This program is calling the Imlib call:


    With the parameter:


    being NULL. Please fix your program.
    why is that?

    Can someone please guide me how to install this theme?

    i use LXDE in Wattos.

    Re: conky setup

    The included start script ( is written to load
    conky -c ~/.conkypi &
    conky -c ~/.conkypiclo
    So rename conkypi and conkypiclo to .conkypi
    and .conkypiclo and place in your home folder.
    The preceding dot makes the files hidden.(To show hidden in the file browser...ctrl+h)

    The path to the lua script in the conkypi config is ~/scripts/qtpi.lua
    so place qtpi.lua in ~/scripts
    Create the scripts folder if you don't have one.

    Right click on the start script ( and properties > permissions
    and mark execute.
    Click on and run. Conky should start after 20secs.
    Try the below fix for the Imlib errror before running.

    Comment out the line in ~/.conkypi that contains ${downspeedf ppp0}...(Line #64)
