Beautify your Zorin Pro/Core 16/17

You can install conky with:

sudo apt install conky-all

Here is the repository for the Conky Manager:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tomtomtom/conky-manager

sudo apt update && sudo apt install conky-manager

You can browse Pling or DeviantArt for premade conky scripts.

The manager helps a lot.

Conky-all package installs the needed mechanics to Run Conky, but it does not really offer Conky's, or a way of easily managing them.

I don't use wayland.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tomtomtom/conky-manager
sudo apt update && sudo apt install conky-manager
I got this tip from an answer from Aravisiano

The Guide is now updated.

  • Including Transparent Moving Windows
  • Blur My Shell

Any other things I should add?

Maybe how to restore vertical workspaces with extensions (if possible? :pleading_face: :pray: )

How did you get the stats (system, HD, wireless) on the desktop?

conky - though it require that you can edit its config files to get it decent.

There is the Extension V-Shell for customizing the Overview. With that You can set up vertical Workspaces.

That is Arcmenu. Or what exactly dou You mean?

Zorin Pro also have 6 desktops.
What I seeing Gnome is very configurable.

I must sayed newest ubuntu is near the same what Zorin but Zorin have a more desktop.
In ubuntu don't working many things and snap package doing this system slowly.
