Ok so thought this would be good info for you themers who use conky! :-)

Article Source: W8: www.webupd8.org/2013/07/conky-…

"Conky Manager is a GUI that allows you to easily manage Conky configurations.
The latest version - 1.1 -, lets you choose from 7 such configurations / themes.

Conky is a lightweight, highly customizable system monitor that displays various info on your desktop.

Conky Manager 1.1 ships with themes ranging from complete system info (memory, cpu, Internet, cpu usage and time) to configurations that only display the CPU usage or Nvidia graphics stats. Below you can preview the Conky themes included in Conky Manager 1.1:

Using this tool, you can easily enable or disable Conky themes as well as enable or disable modules for each config. For instance, if you use the Gold&Grey configuration, you can enable or disable the following modules: time, net, memory, disk or cpu usage.

In the Edit tab, you can configure each widget: set its location (alignment, horizontal and vertical gap), transparency and size (minimum width and height, height padding):

From the Options tab, you can set Conky to run at system startup, import new Conky theme packs if released by the Conky Manager developer, or kill Conky.
 
There are some features Conky Manager currently lacks, like an option to set the network interface to be used by the net modules, however, according to the Conky Manager developer, the tool should get some new features soon, along with new themes included by default.

The application supports adding extra themes - for how to do this, see Conky Manager release announcement.

If you encounter bugs, report them @ Launchpad.


Install Conky Manager in Ubuntu


To install Conky Manager in Ubuntu (and derivates), use the following commands:
sudo apt-add-repository -y ppa:teejee2008/ppa
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install conky-manager

For other Linux distributions you can get the code via Launchpad "

I will be honest I have never messed with pressure sensors before. I could look into it but have no working knowledge with then.

I see - it seems to work quite well on fedora 19 with gnome shell 3.8 and I am curious as to why it has not been implemented on ubuntu gnome 13.04/10. Everything else seems to be offered via the staging ppa - so I am interested as to why not pressure sensors? If you could track down an article as to why not or how to - I would certainly appreciate it. Either way thanks for the articles and I hope you do continue to post these useful bits of information.
