This theme kinda evolved when I was playing with the new Conky features. You'll need an up to date Conky so please be sure to check the readme.

Untar the conky_NightDrive.tar into your home folder.
Go to ~/.conky/NightDrive/ and follow the README.txt

Feel free to modify it and whatever~

It's one of the best conky themes I've ever seen. But I believe that due to the amount of time that has been done, it is bugged in the current distros. I use linux mint 19.1, could you do it, or help an update to function properly in current distros?

this whole conky surely looks pretty damn cool, but there are some problems: 1- weather is not working and 2- what player should i use to make the music info work? i use banshee and it seems not to work
and yes, i followed the readme and everything, i'm no noob in general, just a conky and mpd noob

Beautiful configs. I'll probably modify it enough to remove the time/music that I don't need, but they're perfect right down to the Arch logo!

thought i would share my progress.

WOW, i liked conky before. Now it's just mind blowing. Took me about 30 minutes, maybe a little more, but i managed to stop the segfault errors. At the bottom of the rc file i removed the template lines that i was not using. As well as taking out the mpd lines and and /mnt/music lines in the lua script. now i need to remove the extra circles from the back ground image.

Is there a way to remove the nvidia and switch the MPD to rhythmbox?

Great conky config. I just got it working on my Linux Mint 11 install. The weather part isn't showing up so I'm not sure where that should be pointing and when I play music that info doesn't show up no matter what player I'm using. Any ideas how I can fix this?

Oh yeah; replaced the Arch logo with a LM one (since that's what I'm running right now); still looks great.

Oh and I need to add something else; this is the coolest thing I've ever seen.
