I was having a problem with the fonts not showing up,the solution was: search the web for webdings font download it, rename it Webdings. Then rename all downloaded fonts FezVrasta provided to the correct names (same in conkyrc file): Pie charts,PizzaDude Bullets,StyleBats then place them in your /usr/fonts folder. Start conky and everything should be fine.
I have successfully installed your skin. It works fine but the 'popup.png' image for the background won't show. In terminal, when I type Conky, it shows your skin but in the terminal it says Conky: Unable to load image './.conky/popup.png'. I moved the image file to my home directory; restarted Conky and it says the same thing, just with my folders in front before /.conky. Do you have to edit ./.conky/popup.png on the .conkyrc file? I'm not sure but I had my sister try it a couple of times; it still didn't work. I just wanted to make sure if we have to edit it.
