I recently installed Crunchbang and want to change the color of Conky, which is installed by default and shows system status info on the desktop. However, changing the config settings doesn't seem to make a difference, even when I manually restart conky.
I found two config files:
They have color settings. If I change the settings and run
then a terminal-looking panel appears that DOES reflect my changes. I noticed that in order to refresh the desktop Conky, not this terminal-looking Conky, I have to do
$ sudo killall conky $ sudo conky -q
Killing it makes Conky disappear off the desktop. Starting it again as root makes it reappear on the desktop. But none of changes I make to the config files show up in the "root desktop" Conky, only when I run it as a "subsystem" Conky.
Please help me understand what is going on, and what I am missing.
