If you have time, could you add a theme for 1600x900, too? Or explain a bit more detailed how to customize? It's not only the clock, also the rest does not really fit on the desktop.

It's such a beautiful theme, I would like to use it!
Works perfectly! Thank you very much!

Just one other question: how can I start automatically after log-in?

press Alt+F2
enter gnome-session-properties
add startup script:
  name: whatever you want (ex. cai-clock-conky)
  command: /home/cai/.conky/cai_clock_1600x900/startup (change /home/cai to your home path)
  description may be blank
save it
that's all

Ok, I'll do it, gve me a little time, something about day or two... :)
Great job but i have a screen resolution 1920x1080 (16:9) so my clock is not centered with the hour displayed by the conky cfg... how to have a wallpaper suitable with my monitor ?

This configuration for 1280x800 only.
You can try to manually adapt it for other resolution by changing offsets in ~/.conky/cai_clock/startup
clock coordinates is in "conky -c ~/.conky/cai_clock/clock/.conkyrc -x 256 -y 415" line and voffsets in "~/.conky/cai_clock/monitors/.conkyrc" and "~/.conky/cai_clock/calendar/.conkyrc" files.
currently I haven't access to high resolution monitor, maybe a little later I can adapt this configurations for 1920x1200 & other hi-res...
Ok, thanks... I'll try it, but it would be nice to have a big resolution script... I can wait

You are welcome!
I don't usually care about how my desktop looks apart from choosing a nice wallpaper (what for? it's going to be covered by windows most of the time)...

But this is absolutely gorgeous, congrats!
