I recently asked here for how-to access release version info.  I used 
this is a short conky script that is have included below as fyi info.  
It should display, bottom left, release and linux version without any 


use_xft yes
xftfont Sans:style=Bold:size=20
double_buffer yes
alignment bottom_right

${color orange}${pre_exec head --bytes=-8 /etc/issue} ${hr 2}$color
$sysname $kernel on sda1

${alignc}${color red}${time %a %d %b}
${alignc}${time %H:%M}

I have 6 installations of Xubuntu and Mint, and often forget just which 
one I am looking at.  I am only a beginner in conky, so if you know how 
to also get the current partition (hard coded above as  sda1) then I 
would appreciate that knowledge.
