Conky is a free software system monitor.
It is available for Linux. Conky is highly configurable and is able to monitor many system variables including the status of the CPU, memory, swap space, disk storage, temperatures, processes, network interfaces, battery power, system messages, e-mail inboxes, Linux updates, many popular music players, and much more. Unlike system monitors that use high-level widget toolkits to render their information, Conky is drawn directly in an X window. This allows it to consume relatively fewer system resources when configured similarly.

Aureola conky can be installed on any distro: Arch based, Debian based or Solus

These screenshots have been taken on Antergos Cinnamon, an arch based distro.

Let us just show how to update to the latest version of Aureola and go over all the conky’s.

Remember Aureola works only on the application conky with version higher then 1.10.x.

If you have a lower version of the conky application 1.9.x, you can use the aurora conky. They are however not maintained anymore. Type conky –version in the terminal to know what version you are on.

If you do not have Aureola installed yet, be sure to read this article first to install it.
