How on earth can I make my crunchbang box look more like this?

So I was on 4chan on /g/ and I saw this screenshot:

(moderator note - removed 4chan image hotlink - cc)

Can someone assist me with how I can make mine look more like this?
Cheers, yo.

Re: How on earth can I make my crunchbang box look more like this?

I've seen a few Conky setups like that. The desktop image has been thrown around a lot, I've seen it in multiple places.

With some minor editing to the one posted by Hanna in the Conky thread, you can make it look just like that.

# Use Xft?
use_xft yes
xftfont Trebuchet MS:size=8
xftalpha 0.8
text_buffer_size 2048

# Update interval in seconds
update_interval 1

# This is the number of times Conky will update before quitting.
# Set to zero to run forever.
total_run_times 0

# Create own window instead of using desktop (required in nautilus)
    own_window yes
    own_window_transparent yes
    own_window_type desktop
    own_window_hints undecorated,below,sticky,skip_taskbar,skip_pager

# Use double buffering (reduces flicker, may not work for everyone)
double_buffer yes

# Minimum size of text area
minimum_size 180 0

# Draw shades?
draw_shades no

# Draw outlines?
draw_outline no

# Draw borders around text
draw_borders no

# Stippled borders?
stippled_borders 0

# border margins
border_margin 5

# border width
border_width 1

# Default colors and also border colors
default_color white
own_window_colour white

# Text alignment, other possible values are commented
alignment top_right

# Gap between borders of screen and text
# same thing as passing -x at command line
gap_x 35
gap_y 50

# Subtract file system buffers from used memory?
no_buffers yes

# set to yes if you want all text to be in uppercase
uppercase no

# number of cpu samples to average
# set to 1 to disable averaging
cpu_avg_samples 2

# number of net samples to average
# set to 1 to disable averaging
net_avg_samples 2

# Force UTF8? note that UTF8 support required XFT
override_utf8_locale yes

# Add spaces to keep things from moving about?  This only affects certain objects.
use_spacer none

I was just refrerring in regards to the exec command which could be used to get rce. You can conceal it quite well within a conky script.

I dont really think its good enought to be documented much but I just found it interesting smile
