Font Preparation

Download Conky Icons by Carelli.ttf from following url:

With the downloaded ttf, do following command:

$ cp fonts/Conky\ Icons\ by\ Carelli.ttf /usr/share/fonts/TTF/
$ cd /usr/share/fonts/TTF/
$ sudo chmod 0444 Conky\ Icons\ by\ Carelli.ttf
$ sudo fc-cache
$ fc-match -a | grep -i conky
Conky Icons by Carelli.ttf: "Conky Icons by Carelli" "Regular"

Install font-awesome:

$ yaourt -S ttf-font-awesome-4 --noconfirm

Most conky configuration files use font-awesome version 4 rather than version 5, so we should install specified version 4.

	own_window_type = 'override',
        own_window_class = "Conky",
	own_window_hints = 'undecorated,below,sticky,skip_taskbar,skip_pager',
	own_window_transparent = true,
	border_inner_margin = 10,
	border_outer_margin = 0,
	xinerama_head = 2,
