I just used sbopkg to download conky and dependencies: lua, imlib2 and tolua++.
In the readme there is a note saying:
"You will need (abovementioned files) and: run script LUA=yes ./conky.Slackbuilds"
Where do I run this script?
Edit: Okay, after searching the forum, I'm a step closer, after finding this, written 3 years ago:
As for Conky, using that slackbuild you should be able to build and install it without any issue, but if you would like to add LUA support, you will need to install the required packages and their dependencies. First, once you have found conky, go down to the "Options" section in the menu and enter in "LUA=yes" (no quotes). Add it to your build queue, then add the dependencies as follows:
Conky with LUA support requires lua, imlib2, and tolua++, which you can add by searching for them using sbopkg.
tolua++ will require lua (which you've already added), and scons.
However, when I run conky at the prompt, I get this:
Conky: desktop window (1600003) is subwindow of root window (ae)
Conky: window type - desktop
Conky: drawing to created window (0x3800001)
Conky: drawing to single buffer
And the program doesn't do anything, doesn't terminate, doesn't run, no other error report.
Thanks kindly for any help
