Indrora's Conky config

Indrora's Conky Config

This is my Conky configuration. It's based on the Metro style from MS and requires a font (Segoe UI Light), included.


Make sure and extract to your ~/.config directory.

If the battery status doesn't work make sure and do a chmod a+x ~/.config/conky/

This should fix up any basic problems.

segoe UI and its friends are included in

have fun!
