All conky’s, requiring LUA coming from ArchLabs, will have ‘lua’ in its name. That means you will have to install extra software to be able to see elements created by this programming language.

Type this in your terminal and depending on your hardware the application will run or not. Remember which one does run.

In this tutorial we will do this together.

First we use the script to get the very latest version of the conky’s then we run it. We see missing element for the Misty conky. Then we install a new application that will support LUA.

After that we see that DOWN and UP are not working. Quite normal since the names of the wired or wireless adapter is different on every computer.

Check in the terminal how your card is named.


Change the name of the down and up in the lua. Save and enjoy.
