Now it's time to unarchive these files.
Use the following command
tar -xvf conky.1.7.0.tar.gz

It should start unpacking...
many directory and file names will scroll by.

Now so you can see,
clear which will clear the screen and do a
ls -ld conky* I've added the d so it would list the directory
and not the contents of the directory and the conky* will list
starting with conky.
We see the original tarball and a new directory

Now we'll enter that directory cd conky-1.7.0
We expect a README and INSTALL file for additional instructions
from the author.
