Either using command line "sudo apt-get install conky" or using the graphical package manager.

Conky also has quite a few extras you may want to play with.  I suggest you google the web for conky configurations.

Hello!

One could spend YEARS playing with Conky. There are many thousands of .conkyrc files posted online. You can do so much with it, it's like a programming language of its own.

After playing with Conky a little myself,  I realized why no one responded to my request to post their .conkyrc files. They wouldn't look the same on any two different PCs.

I tried a sample one, but the text was all crunched together, and I didn't want to spend a lifetime trying to figure out how to fix it. Next time I get REALLY, REALLY bored, and I want my home screen to look like the instrument panel of a jet fighter (yes, they have conkys that do that), I might try Conky again...
