Cheers. I've installed conky however when I run it, it opens in it's own window. How do I get it to appear on the desktop background? I know I could use fvwmbuttons to swallow it but I was hoping to there was maybe another way??

Thanks

Thanks for that - copied and it runs fine (apart from IP address not displaying however the speeds do). I'll get on with setting it up how I want it later on!

Simple XFCE. Wallpaper is a photo of the Sea of Galilee from the north, probably somewhere near where Jesus would have delivered the Sermon on the Mount.
