The default config is in /etc/conky/conky.conf

It's probably better to use:
Code:
cp /etc/conky/conky.conf ~/.conkyrc
and modify that file, rather than change the original.

+1 and then call it using
Code:
conky -c ~/.conkyrc
after you've made your changes to ~/.conkyrc
Using
Code:
conky
alone will use /etc/conky/conky.conf and NOT your local file ~/.conkyrc

both packages are unnecessary. I'd remove conky and keep conky-all

Conky will only source /etc/conky/conky.conf if there is no ~/.conkyrc present.

Once ~/.conkyrc is present, no additional flag is needed to source that file.

Good to know.
That must be "new". I've beat conky to death years back and I don't remember that behavior.

Thanks.
