Bodhi Linux: My Conky configuration text

I am using Bodhi Linux and here is my conky configuration text. It is minimalistic, but has all what is needed, there is minimal system information (uptime, total RamSwap, current frequency of processor cores), it’s usage (load of CPU cores, ram usage, I do not included swap, because it is never used on my laptop), wireless information (SSID name, signal strength, connections coming in and out, also speed of download and upload. There is also information about AC adapter and battery. My conky is colorful and transparent, suited for laptop, which uses wireless (wlan0). If you want to use cable, change wlan0 to eth0.

PS: all you need to do is to install conky using sudo apt-get install conky (if you get error, type first sudo apt-get update) then go to /etc/conky and open file as root (to do so you need to simply click Tools -> Open current folder as Root) named conky.conf then replace all text inside with one which is bellow.

Keep in mind that if you only copy some parts of my config make sure that there is line no_buffers yes in your configuration , because if not you will get wrong ram usage information.
