I have installed basic-conky using the following commands:

wget -O
sudo rm

Now how do I remove it?

Even downloaded the startup script using these commands:

wget -O .start-conky
chmod +x .start-conky

I don't want to continue with it. Can anyone tell how to remove it?

Looks as if you simply delete all the files you downloaded. – bodhi.zazen Feb 18 '13 at 20:23
looks like it :) – nickanor Feb 18 '13 at 20:33
Its unclear which are the files that have been downloaded. – ahj.ashish Feb 18 '13 at 20:56
@ahj.ashish that is because all the links are shortened, can you post where you found the instructions? – Mateo Mar 27 '13 at 20:48

Hi you can remove it and all config files by typing this command:

"sudo apt-get --purge remove package name"

In this case, run the following command on terminal:

sudo apt-get --purge remove conky conky-all
