Screenlets make for a beautiful and informational desktop

So I just installed screenlets and have modified my .conkyrc file to provide a minimal, beautiful desktop if I do say so myself.

I’m running ubuntu 9.10 on my laptop and am using the “deep” theme for the wallpaper clock.

Here’s what it looks like:

and if you want my very minimal .conkyrc file here’s that:

[codesyntax lang="bash" lines="no"]

use_xft yes
xftfont verdana:size=8
alignment top_right
xftalpha 0.8
own_window yes
own_window_type override
own_window_transparent yes
own_window_hints undecorated,below,sticky,skip_taskbar,skip_pager
double_buffer yes
draw_shades no
draw_outline no
draw_borders no
stippled_borders 10
border_margin 4
border_width 1
default_shade_color black
default_outline_color black
default_color 102b45
use_spacer none
no_buffers yes
uppercase no
color1 F8DF58

TEXT

${loadgraph 20,245 2f5c85 FFFFFF -l -t}
${alignr}${loadavg 1}/${loadavg 2}/${loadavg 3}

[/codesyntax]

Be glad your a linux user! Openness is beautiful!

    Is the end of the .conkry missing?

    The TEXT section is 2 lines long, should have a bit about the time n date :)

    I meant .conkyrc of course :) it’s late.

    Actually the date and time on the desktop are shown using the screenlets the conky on that desktop is just the graph and load numbers at the top right of the desktop so no, the .conkyrc file I posted is the one I used.

        Thank you for the quick reply sir. I can’t seem to find the theme anywhere. Google has officially failed me.
