Easy to Use Lucid Themed Conky

Filed under
Software

Conky is a is a light-weight system monitor that can be customized extensively (Windows converts think ‘rainmeter’.) and the following Conky theme by Veoduendes certainly proves that.

Called ‘Conky Ubuntu Lucid Theme’ (!) it’s designed, yep you guessed it, for Ubuntu 10.04 although Karmic users using the Ambiance/Radiance themes will likely find it blends in fine with their desktops too.

Conky = confusing

Conky has a reputation for being cumbersome to use and that is not a lie. Once you ‘get’ how Conky works it all seems to simple but for newcomers it is certainly daunting. Thankfully this following script is real easy to use so even the Conky-cautious should be able to run it with minimum fuss.

LibreOffice 4.4 the beautiful

We are very close to release LibreOffice 4.4 and I thought I’d share my thoughts on the work that has been put into this new branch and what the general idea is about it. LibreOffice 4.4 is unusual; as a major release you may expect some important underlying change in its architecture, or the inclusion of a set of major features. The 4.4 does include several important features and improvements, most notably for Impress and the much forgotten HTML editor (the comprehensive release notes may be found here).
