Conky on Slackware64-current KDE-4


I've installed Conky on my machine, when I go to the application launcher and run conky-1.9.0-x86_64-1sl.txz nothing happens..
when I run conky in term I get this conky: error while loading shared libraries: libImlib2.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

You need to install imlib2. Get it over at www.slackbuilds.org

Read the SBo readme for the required dependencies.
