To get all these conky’s to your computer you can either download the zip and uncompress it or use a terminal and type

git clone https://github.com/erikdubois/Aureola

Or download the zip file and extract it.

Open the downloaded folder and run the script

./get-aureola-from-github-to-local-drive.sh

This script will again download the latest code from github but it will also move all the conky’s
in a hidden folder in your home directory. All the conky’s will be placed in

~/.aureola

From this folder .aureola you can rerun at any time the script

./get-aureola-from-github-to-local-drive.sh

and your conky’s will be updated to the latest version automatically.

This script will take care of :

  • file management
  • making sure that conky starts next time you boot
  • making sure there is a ~/.config/conky folder present
  • making a hidden folder ~/.aureola where all the conky’s will reside
  • copy/pasting the github files in the hidden folder ~/.aureola

Conky’s home folder is also a hidden one.

~/.config/conky

Anything with the name conky.conf will be started if in the conky’s home folder.
