Titre: Conky for Bento
Posté par: Taco.22 le 04 janvier 2018 à 09:56:58
I have carried a particular conky script with me across a lot of years and a number of distros.  I run OB without any panels or embellishments, so conky gives me a clock and a look at some of the processes going on, as well as keeping track of the desktops.  Mélodie suggested that I post the current incarnation here as a possible inclusion for Bento.  Bear in mind that sometimes tweaks need to be made, for example the network connection.  It is a basic ".file" hidden in the home folder.  Below is the script and the end product.  Let us know what you think.

Hi Mélodie,

No, that is cropped from a screenshot of my computer.  I haven't used VBox in ages.  Downloading now to reacquaint myself!
