I used also Fluxbox before, so I have the same problem. Awesome widgets are
nice, but I like the verbosity of my conky. So I would really appreciate any
suggestions, how I can create a custom layout, which leaves space for my
conky, which is drawn directly to the root of X.
Btw you did a great job with awesome. IMHO the learning curve could be a bit
less steeper with better documentation, though.
