Conky-Faenza theme adds iStatPro flavour to your Ubuntu desktop

Conky-Faenza is, as the name suggests, a Conky theme with a Faenza flavour.

Styled in the vein if, but not identical to, mac widget iStat-Pro it provides a tidy and attractive way to keep an eye on system vitals, such as CPU, without needing to resort to a desktop full of screenlets or a run-of-the-mill Conky output.

The setup ships with six themes including Ambiance ( which is set as default), Elementary and Sonar.

The default configuartion will likely serve most people well but you can, naturally, tweak it to your hearts content by editing the .conkyrc file in your home folder.
