I successfully installed the "Gotham" Conky on my 12.04 desktop using these instructions
It works perfectly, positioned in the top-right side of my desktop, and I am happy every day of the week except "Wednesday". Because of the length of the word "Wednesday", unfortunately the "y" trunctates off the screen (to the right).
I would like to reposition the conky, (preferablably keep it Top-Right) but nudge it to the left so the "y" is visible on the screen.
Any "how to" instructions will be gratefully received.
