Score 54%
Description:

This Conky widget draws a Basic Conky interactive interface to display system information. By means of mouse clicks or drag-and-drop the layout and contents of the widget can be changed.

NOTE
Keep in mind that Conky cycles every x second. So, you have to wait one Conky cycle before you see an reaction to your mouse click.
If you already are using ConkyBacic MkII then do not overwrite the config.conf file when installing a new version. If you do you will need to set-up your theme again.
On virtual machines CPU temperature and such does not work due to the lack of hardware sensors.

Installation:
- unpack the source file
-copy the file .conkybasicactive to your home directory
-copy the file .conkybasicactive_c110 to your home directory
-copy the basicactive folder into ~/.lua
-install the Unique font in ~/.lua/basicactive
Usage:
'conky -c .conkybasicactive -q' or if you are using conky 1.10.x 'conky -c .conkybasic_c110 -q'

Prerequisites :
lm-sensors, xinput, xdotool, xwininfo, Conky version 1.9 / 1.10.0 (with work-arounds in this code)

Use the left-mouse button you select the panel you want to move. Click it and keep it pressed, then move your mouse to the panel you want to swap it with. When it is highlighted release the button.
Use the right-mouse button to change the contents of a panel.
The system tray has 5 control surfaces. Upper left, will change the panel background. Upper right, will change the VU bars. Left and Right, will cycle through the available themes.
