Starting Conky
Add the following lines to the System->Firmware Customzation->Desktop Commands->Custom Command Desktop Final area:
This custom partition content is created with the Deployment Assistant Tool for IGEL Thin Clients (DATI) Version 1.06 and can be modified.
Extract the .tar.bz2 file coming with this package and start DATI, now click on Linux Project->IGEL Linux Integration Script Engine LX/OS (ILISE).
After the ILISE window is available click on "Set content folder" and point it to the extracted "conky" folder. Click "Load Shell Script", this will load the existing script from the conky main folder.
Now you can add files to the conky folder (like other images in /conky/usr/share/pixmaps) or modify the conky configuration file /conky/etc/conky/conky.conf file (if you edit the conky.conf file make sure you are using a tool that is able to save it in linux format, like UE Studio or similar) otherwise the Conky configuration file can not be loaded by Conky.
After you have done your modification click on "Create Script" to generate the variable script part; please note there is a static ILISE-MyScript Area already included to generate the start script in /config/sessions.
Now select "Save Shell Script" and "Create .tar.bz2 + .inf" incl. to set the version number for the package, the new files ready for deployment are now available in the folder where you extract the orignal package.
Known issues
If you modify the Conky configuration you are not able to setup a transparent Conky window (also not configured by default), this depends on the used GFX Card and  the used Windows Manager by IGEL. It's not critical from my side but i recommend to not used or configure a transparent Conky window.

Important: Please reboot the IGEL Universal Desktop LX/OS Thin Client after the package is deployed!
