Make sure you have conky and the Cutive Mono font installed on your system.
Download compressed files or use git clone.
git clone https://github.com/luxwarp/lux-hud.git
Place the lux-hud folder inside
eg of correct file path
/home/username/.config/conky/lux-hud/ (all files inside here.)
Go through all .conf files and make sure your own device names are correct like disks / mount points / network interfaces etc.
Execute the startall.sh file to run all widgets at once, or use conky -c /path/to/configfile.conf command to only launch the one you want, see the startall.sh file for how the script loads all conf files.
This collection is developed for a screen resolution of 1920x1080px. So feel free to customize all widgets to fit your screen if they aren't positioned correctly for you.
See conky wiki for more information.

Why is all widgets in it's own file?
Mainly because it's easier to position them on the desktop.
How ever the bad thing about this is that it requires to run
multiple conky processes.
How do I make Lux HUD autostart on boot/login?
Look up how to create an autostart script on your distribution.
But most distributions that follows the FreeDesktop spec allows you to create a .desktop file in ~/.config/autostart/ for ex.
Comment=A complete system monitoring running with conky.
How do I customize the widgets in Lux HUD?
Just edit the conf file you want to customize and save. If conky
is already running the conf file you edit it should update without
a restart of conky. See conky wiki and man conky pages for more information
on what you can do with conky.
