  • config file additions - show_degsym_fc_temp
  • use_xml issues fixed where even if set to 0 - would still download the default data
  • Removed show_short_cond_text scattered from blacklist

  • fixed --debug information to show config file used and xml_ID info.
  • On Arch Linux the new conkywx.conf will be saved as /etc/conkywx/conkywx.conf.pacnew - review the changes and update your conkywx.conf
  • If you are using Gnome 3 - own_window_type in the * needs to be changed to normal
  • * files are configured on XFCE 4.10 with compiz + emerald - you may need to tweak conkyrc examples for your DE


There is a wiki which is same as the conkywx man page conkywx wiki

If you are using Arch linux visit this AUR page

If you are using Debian based Distro - Ubuntu, CrunchBang, Mint etc Download ver 0.7.4

There is also a Stand Alone version you can run in your home directory Download ver 0.7.4_sa

For this stand alone version you will need to copy the fonts in to the ~/.fonts directory. It is a hidden folder in your home directory. Use the file to get it going or see how it works and integrate into your existing conky setup.
