Everything you need is already installed. Check your Home folder, hit contol + h, and you'll see a bunch of files you might not have seen before (these are hidden files). Scroll down until you get past the folders and come to .txt files. There you will notice the .conkyrc, .conkyForecast.config and .draw_bg.lua files. double click on one of these and instead of choosing 'run' @ the prompt, choose 'display'. You'll notice the files open in an editor called gedit. Good. Now you can edit as per Pinguy's instructions following the links above. You won't need to do much configuration or editing, as Pinguy has the conky mostly set-up already.

Hope that clears some confusion. It's really easier than it seems...
