Just run this command (Applications->Accessories->Terminal) to install Gcalcli from default repository:

sudo apt-get install gcalcli

use this command to create a config file with the Google Calendar login information.

gedit ~/.gcalclirc

previous command creates a config file in home folder and opens the file.We need copy and paste following into the file and save it.

user: yourusername
pw: yourpassword

Pay attention: replace “yourusername” and “yourpassword” with your Google username ( don’t include the “” part) and password

2. Install conky with this command:

sudo apt-get install conky

edit the config file:

gedit ~/.conkyrc
