How to add Conky Harmattan on Manjaro Linux

If you are a linux user, you have at least once tried to customize your linux desktop. And here comes Conky. Conky is a lightweight system monitor with lots of other features (widgets).

If you are using Manjaro Linux, you might have faced the issue with Conky Harmattan theme. In this article I’ll show you how you can add Conky Harmattan on your Linux Manjaro Desktop in just 2 minutes. You can see the screenshot of my Laptop screen in which I have been using Manjaro Linux and customized it to look like MacOS.

So, to set the Conky Harmattan Transparent theme on Manjaro linux, you’ll have to copy the code given below and create a file named .conkyrc in your Home folder and paste the code there.

conky.config = {
