If you want your linux desktop to look good, you cannot omit conky, the amazing system monitor tool that you can put on the desktop with endless creative ways. Yesterday I checked Gnome-look and found Path-indicator conky, a new conky config with a unique style, color and shape. Here is a screenshot of Path-indicator conky:
Here is the link to download Path-indicator conky. According to the author, the archive file contains 2 files. To make it work, just save the file conkyrc as .conkyrc to your home directory and save the file avi9526_conky.lua to ~/.conky ( you also need to create the folder .conky in your home directory first).
