Conky comes bundled with many package managers. However, if you'd like to try the latest release of Conky, you can try the AppImage build. If you have
curlinstalled, run the following command to fetch the latest AppImage:
$ curl -sL -o conky-x86_64.AppImage \ $(curl -sL https://api.github.com/repos/brndnmtthws/conky/releases/latest | \ jq --raw-output '.assets | .browser_download_url') $ ls conky-x86_64.AppImage
If you don't have
curlinstalled, go to https://github.com/brndnmtthws/conky/releases/latest and fetch the latest AppImage. Then:
$ chmod +x ./conky-x86_64.AppImage $ ./conky-x86_64.AppImage -C > ~/.conkyrc $ ./conky-x86_64.AppImage
And that's it! Check out the Wiki for more details on configuring Conky.
Note: To use the AppImage, you may need to install additional runtime libraries.
