    The original conky seems to have been abandoned in 2012 @ 1.9.0 https://sourceforge.net/projects/conky/files/conky/
    http://conky.sourceforge.net this link points to github https://github.com/brndnmtthws/conky
    It appears as the latest is 1.11.15 (arch has 1.11.14 currently on).
    The testing repository currently carries the 1.10.8

    My main use of the conky is to monitor top processes using cpu and ram. From a pkg called conky-manager I had gotten a Process Panel from TeeJeeTech but originally it came with just top5, I modified it to show the top 10. Here it is:

    background yes
