First of all, excuse me for my bad english :P This is my conky config file. It's very simple, but has some special things:
* A hotmail script that reads your hotmail account and shows new mails on inbox and spam folder.
* A Gmail script that logins to your gmail account via IMAP4, shows your new mails on inbox, how many new mails you have on spam folder and how many mails you have in the trash folder. Also you can see the usage of your gmail account.
* An Audacious section, that shows the current playing song, its bitrate, position on playlist and progressbar. You should have compiled conky with audacious support.
* An section that tries to show the external disk usage.
If you have problems, specialy with hotmail or gmail scripts, please leave me a comment to try to solve it. Enjoy!
