My conkyrc

Andrew Bolster

Senior R&D Manager (Data Science) at Synopsys Software Integrity Group and Treasurer @ Bsides Belfast and NI OpenGovernment Network

Contents (what you get out of this)
Weather, HDDtemp, UL/DL speed and cumulative meters, CPU load, Folding@Home status, Remote transmission download status (could be local, easy change), gmail status, RAM usage, Uptime, Date/Time, ToDo list

These all automatically update dependant on the execi variable.

Preface (What you need to get this all working)
Linux OS (Ubuntu?)
Conky (obv, see someone elses guide for how to get that HINT synaptic is ur friend)
Transmission download manager (local or remote)
Folding at home installed with origami (could be local or remote using the same logic as the Transmission manager)
Passwordless SSH authentication (if your using this with any remote hosts)
A todo list on the desktop called todo (strange that…)

WARNING I’m lazy so im not telling you why or how this all works. Work it out yourself. I Got alot of the system monitoring stuff from a variety of places (lifehacker i think, my apologies to whoever i stole from).
