Over a Year ago, I created a Conky configuration file for the Raspberry Pi. I final got around to tailoring it for my desktop Linux box. You find both version on GitHub. Screen shot is at the bottom.

# --------------------------------------------------------------------- #
#
# .conkyrc - derived from various examples across the 'net
#   Designed to support a 4 core processer running Ubunutu
#
# You can restart conky by running
#       killall -SIGUSR1 conky
#
# --------------------------------------------------------------------- #


# -------------------- Conky's Run Time Parameters -------------------- #

update_interval 2.0         # Conky update interval in seconds
total_run_times 0           # Number of updates before quitting.  Set to zero to run forever.
no_buffers yes              # Subtract file system buffers from used memory?
cpu_avg_samples 2           # Number of cpu samples to average. Set to 1 to disable averaging
net_avg_samples 2           # Number of net samples to average. Set to 1 to disable averaging


# -------------------- Conky's General Look & Feel -------------------- #

# --- defualt values --- #
default_color grey          # Default color and border color
default_bar_size 0 6        # Specify a default width and height for bars.
default_gauge_size 25 25    # Specify a default width and height for gauges.
default_graph_size 0 25     # Specify a default width and height for graphs.
default_outline_color green # Default border and text outline color
default_shade_color yellow  # Default border and text shading color

# --- predefined colors - http://www.kgym.jp/freesoft/xrgb.html --- #
color0 FFFFFF               # white
color1 FFA500               # orange
color2 B22222               # firebrick
color3 696969               # dim gray
color4 D3D3D3               # light gray

color8 FF8C69               # salmon
color9 FFE7BA               # wheat

# --- window layout & options --- #
own_window yes              # Conky creates its own window instead of using desktop
own_window_type normal      # If own_window is yes, use type normal, desktop, or override
own_window_transparent yes  # Use pseudo transparency with own_window?
own_window_colour blue      # If own_window_transparent is no, set the background colour
double_buffer yes           # Use double buffering (reduces flicker)
use_spacer right            # Adds spaces to stop object from moving
maximum_width 600           # Maximum width of window in pixels
own_window_hints undecorated,below,sticky,skip_taskbar,skip_pager

# --- window placment --- #
alignment top_right         # window placement can be top_right, top_left, bottom_left, bottom_right

# --- borders, margins, and outlines --- #
draw_graph_borders yes      # Do you want to draw borders around graphs
border_inner_margin 9       # Window's inner border margin (in pixels)
border_outer_margin 5       # Window's outer border margin (in pixels)
gap_x 10                    # Gap between borders of screen and text (on x-axis)
gap_y 40                    # Gap between borders of screen and text (on y-axis)
border_width 10             # Window's border width (in pixels)

# --- Text --- #
draw_outline no             # Do you want ot draw outlines
draw_shades no              # Do you want to draw shades
draw_borders no             # Do you want to draw borders around text
uppercase no                # set to yes if you want all text to be in uppercase
use_xft yes                 # use the X FreeType interface library (anti-aliased font)
xftfont Monospace:size=8:weight=bold    # Xft font to be used
