Is there a gui for this or at least a tutorial

For find or conky?

To edit the conky that comes with KDE

I use Kate or Geany to edit conky.conf.
Web is full of conky tutorials.

Thanks Ill try soon

Hi, I dont have that folder.

Also when I run conky, I got default Garuda setup I think, but dont know how to edit it. Because I dont have .config/conky/ folder.

Also via Gui manager, I can not run any preset conky, It doesnt load

This generally happens after you've run out alcohol at your residence. The cure not surprisingly, is to hit the liquor store and replenish your alcohol supplies ASAP.

In this day and age with uncertain inventory supplies you need to be extremely vigilant about restocking before you run dry. Otherwise, all manners of horrors may befall you,.

One can never be too careful. :wink:

Its a dot folder = hidden

Use file browser and press Ctrl + h

ls -la .config/conky

I know that. I have it unhidden, but still not there xD

╰─λ ls -la .config/conky
".config/conky": No such file or directory (os error 2)

Use

find

then. If there is no conky file how it starts as you said?

Are you in ~
for ls -la ?

[[email protected] ~]$ ls -la $HOME/.config/conky

Next, has the conky white head eagle on top?
If not it is the standard conky file.

I know some basics. For example I edited my conky on LXQT Garuda. Because conky folder is there..
