Voyagers Conky Control in Arch

 Conky Control is a very nice config tool for conky that you can find shipped with Voyager Linux, an Xubuntu based distro with  a very beautiful configuration, themes etc. : http://voyager.legtux.org/

See conky control in action here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XelYd66FE0s from 1:45
You need to have conky-lua installed: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=31589
packer -S conky-lua
You can download the conky scripts here: http://ompldr.org/vZWoxMA
Put the extracted Conky folder in /home/user/.scripts

Backup your old folder/home/user/.conky.
Download the second folder (.conky)  from here and extract it and put it in /home/user/
http://ompldr.org/vZWoxYg
Create a symbolic link (adapt username):
sudo ln -s  /home/paul/.scripts/Conky/conky /usr/bin/conkycontrol
Now all you have to do is create a menu item in your OB menu or/and a keyboard shortcut to rc.xml
Menu, place it under:
menu id="preferences" label="Preferences"
