Ubuntu – Ubuntu 16.04 Gnome Conky does not work right

conkygnomegtk3ubuntu-gnome

I downloaded and installed Ubuntu gnome 16.04 and I installed icon and theme and much. Finally I installed conky-manager but it doesn't work correct like this.

Conky changed the conkyrc format to lua in the recent versions, the original seamod (and 99% of all other conkys out there) still have the old format.

Thankfully, user maxiwell on Github has already converted the popular seamod theme for Ubuntu 16.04. Since askubuntu/Stackoverflow prefers source instead of links, here the conkyrc.lua:
