That's my lateral .conkyrc
1. Copy the conkyrc file in your home folder and rename it to .conkyrc
2. Copy the ip.sh file in the .scripts folder inside your home folder.
Then you can change system information, font, font color, disks' name and path and so on...
Temperatures are the hardest part: you've got to have lm-sensors installed, hddtemp installed and running as a daemon and maybe to change some characters in the .conkyrc file.
My .conkyrc is just a modification of CONKY-colors by helmuthdu: http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/CONKY-colors?content=92328
Also the ip.sh script comes from there.
Enjoy! :D Comments much appreciated!
