Conky is a free, light-weight system monitor for X, that displays any information on your desktop. Conky is licensed under the GPL and runs on Linux and BSD. Conky can display this info either as text, or using simple progress bars and graph widgets, with different fonts and colours. Conky is able to monitor many system variables including CPU, memory, swap, disk space, temperature, top, upload, download, system messages, and much more. It is extremely configurable, however, the configuration can be a little hard to understand. Conky is a fork of torsmo.
You can check previously shared conky versions for Linux desktop. Neon conky is available in three different colors (Blue, Red, Yellow). I wrote a script to automate whole installation process for this conky, so everybody can easily install it or remove it from system using uninstall script. During installation setup will ask you which color you want and after that conky will be installed in your system and conky related wallpaper will be added to (~/Pictures) location, after installation change your wallpaper to conky related for best results, I hope no one will get any problem with installation. It is tested on most of Linux desktops environments: Gnome Shell, Unity, Cinnamon, Gnome Classic, Mate and hopefully will work on others too. This conky displays Date/Time, CPU, Memory, and Internet upload/download speed. I dropped PPA support for conky because many user report problems, so as usual I picked up only wget script installation method because it can work with most of the Linux distributions without any problem and automated interactive setup makes stuff easy.
