It’s reported by many users that conky doesn’t work with desktop management provided by PCManFM. Personally I do not use Conky, but many of our users use it. I’ve been seeking for a solution for our users but didn’t find one. Recently I saw a blog post containing a screenshot with working conky + pcmanfm. So I mailed the author Dom and he shared his config file. I post it here in the hope that this can help our users. However, I’m not sure if it’s guaranteed to work. Try it yourself if you use conky.
