Installing and using Conky in Linux

Conky – system monitor.

The installation command in Ubuntu:

sudo apt-get install conky

In CentOS/Fedora:

sudo yum install conky

Start command:

conky

At the first start, I displayed this window:
conky

The configuration files are located in the /etc/conky/.

To read the built-in documentation, you can run the following command:

man conky

Example of launching in a background with an update interval of 2 sec.:

conky -d -u 2

To stop, you can use the command:

pkill conky
