For the longest time I thought conky was too complicated to actually make anything worth a dang. So I have been using conky-manager by TeeJee. For years I have used the basic templates that came with conky-manager. Holly @#$!*& I just found out that it was just a wrapper for other conky scripts. While CM does not have the ability to tweak all the underlying config it can do some. Just open up the config file, and tweak as needed. With all of that being said I have customized my own for future usage. Click here for some awesome conkyness.
