    Default Backtrack-Conky !!!!!

    I have had several requests for conky so I made special conky for backtrack pre-final.

    To get it all you need to do is:
    apt-get update && apt-get install conky-backtrack

    Heres a picture. Its a little cut off because I took it in vmware and the resolution was off.

    Awesome stuff pureh@te, thanks for contributing! May I suggest a little iteration to your design though? What about kinda "update-checker", i.e. a script that checks for updates from the repos and output a line like "There are x updates available". Shouldn't be too difficult to implement from my perspective and would be a very useful alternative for the community to the recently fixed update-notifier. I've seen something like this for ArchLinux/Pacman some time ago and found it pretty neat and useful. Unfortunately I cannot find it currently, but I think you got the suggestion anyway. What do you think about?

    hi,
    Im using BT4 final thru VMware.

    Opened shell and entered..

    root@bt:~# apt-get update && apt-get install conky-backtrack
    ...generated a bunch of URLs..
    (URLS)Hit p://us.archive.ubuntu.com]Index of intrepid-updates/universe Sources

    E: Couldn't find package conky-backtrack
    root@bt:~#
    Tried running run apt-get update also.
    Am I doing something wrong? Maybe its not as simple as entering
    "apt-get update && apt-get install conky-backtrack" into a new shell?

    1. You are not using backtrack 4 final since we have not released it yet.

    2. You have ubuntu repos in your source list which either means you are still using the beta (In which case you should upgrade to pre-final) or you have added extra sources to you apt-get sources list which we do not support.

    3. This is what you apt-get update should look like..
    root@bt:~# apt-get update
    Get:1 Remote Exploit Repository pwnsauce Release.gpg [489B]
    Get:2 Remote Exploit Repository pwnsauce Release [9106B]
    Get:3 Remote Exploit Repository pwnsauce/main Packages [1532kB]
    Get:4 Remote Exploit Repository pwnsauce/microverse Packages [74.1kB]
    Get:5 Remote Exploit Repository pwnsauce/macroverse Packages [14.2kB]
    Get:6 Remote Exploit Repository pwnsauce/restricted Packages [11.9kB]
    Get:7 Remote Exploit Repository pwnsauce/universe Packages [4562kB]
    Get:8 Remote Exploit Repository pwnsauce/multiverse Packages [204kB]
    Fetched 6408kB in 9s (663kB/s)
    Reading package lists... Done
    root@bt:~#

    4. If you would learn to use your noodle then you would have used apt-cache search or aptitude search to see whats available.
    root@bt:~# aptitude search conky
    i A conky - highly configurable system monitor for X based on torsmo
    i A conky-backtrack - Backtrack version of a lightweight system monitor
    root@bt:~#
    5. If you have met all the above conditions then it would easily install like this:
    root@bt:~# apt-get install conky-backtrack
    Reading package lists... Done

    Reading state information... Done
    conky-backtrack is already the newest version.
    conky-backtrack set to manually installed.
