Has anyone tried/using Conky Manager with Crunchbang? http://teejeetech.blogspot.co.uk/p/conky-manager.htmlIt looks as though it could be handy but how well does it work and is there a downside with it?Thanks.
I've set conky to be started after logging in by creating the file conky.sh in /usr/local/bin, and adding the entry conky.sh to the Xfce startup applications list. conky.sh contains the following text:
Conky starts as expected, but I now have two conky-related processes permanently running: conky using 7MB of RAM and conky.sh using 1.4MB of RAM.
Conky Manager is a simple graphical tool to manage conky scripts on Linux desktop. Conky Manager v2 has been released with a completely revamped UI and options.
The app window looks more straightforward and easy to use:
A complementary user manual is now available for all users who have contributed to this project either through donations or by translating the application to other languages.
So I just installed Conky, configured it in Terminal while it was almost finished. I set location, it's using the metric system, so it's really cool. But I have few questions:
Am I able to use 2 Conkys in the same time or set two cities as default?
How often does Conky updates itself? I mean on MyWeather Indicator app I could set 15 or 30 minutes and so on.
How does Conky Manager works?

Is anyone having issues with Conky on Kubuntu? I have had vanilla conky & the PPA conky-manager & both freeze my PC & laptop. My pc is a Lenovo D30 with dual 6 core CPU with 64Gb of ram so that's no mean feat. There is no extra power to log into a terminal (via ctl + alt F2) & run top.
