For Ubuntu beginners, it’s not easy to config Conky files. Conky Manager is a simple tool which brings a easy-to-user interface for changing and editing themes.


Conky Manager is a new project and it’s still under development. So far, it only contains a few conky themes.

To install Conky Manager on Ubuntu and Linux Mint:

Press Ctrl+Alt+T to open up terminal, copy and paste below commands and run one by one from the ppa repository. Works on Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy, 13.04 Raring, 12.10 Quantal, 12.04 Precise and Linux Mint 16, 15, 14, 13.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:teejee2008/ppa
