    Have you checked conky's man page?

    man conky:
    Configuration Settings

    Default configuration file location is $HOME/.conkyrc or ${sysconfdir}/conky/conky.conf. On most systems, sysconfdir is /etc, and you can find the sample config file there (/etc/conky/conky.conf).
    [...]
    out_to_console
    Print text to stdout.
    I haven't tried this personally, but I have seen some people recommend it.
