trouble working with Conky
I recently decided to try out a desktop system monitor. I thought that I should start with TyopoytaORvelo System MOnitor (Torsmo). After I was told that it was unmaintained, it was suggested that I move to Conky. I run Sabayon, so I used portage to get the application, and It works great; save one problem. I don't know how to configure it. I found where the files were located (/usr/share/doc/conky-1.4.5/) and I was given the option to extract, I extracted to my home folder (/home/<user>). I could then preceed to edit the file, except nothing took. I honestly am lost as to what to do, I have spent the past five hours researching, they might be speaking english, but its all greek (or geek. OY!) to me.
I also apologize for the bad, bad pun. I am shame faced.
